Your views on mainstream music.

I think I’m going to have the same opinion as everyone. I love music. Music are the words that my soul will never speak. There is a song for everything, for all the good, all the bad, and everything in between. Music can be used to excerise, to sleep, to meditate, to vent or just used as any form of emotional expression.

That’s not to say that that’s how I feel about music nowadays. I’m the type of person that listens to the lyrics before the beat, and most lyrics really, truly, upset me. These artist, are supposed to be our role models, they’re people who we look up to an admire, and all they seem to do is talk about sex, violence and parties. Now I’m not saying there should be songs about education and how fun it is, but I just wish they’d censor themselves more. I wish I didn’t have to be concerned about what type of music I’m filling my son’s head with. Call me old fashion, but I don’t think that there should be curses in all the songs, I don’t believe that sex makes the musical world go round, and I don’t think that drugs, alcohol and violence should be encouraged by our “role models.”

And another thing, by our “wonderful” role models. Grammer! If you are going to be singing about half these things, than at least make your lyrics grammatically correct. Don’t teach/encourage the younger generation that being illiterate is cute.
