A generation of imitators

There's hasn't been a decent NEW sound or song since the 90s. Millenials are all stuck looking for approval from the stupid baby boomers. Why Why Why ? ?

Uh, where have you been?

There is more music out there than whats on MTV:

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

back in 1998

There was this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lH3hrtp1T84

After the rap, we have some raggae, some funk, some techno, all invented in the 80's I meant something original.

Its not that millenial artists aren't good, they are just unoriginal.

Music has always been a

Music has always been a progression that branches out from previous genres. Nobody just comes out with some brand new noise and people are down on it.

Led Zeppelin just combined blues with rock but in doing so they were a revolutionary band. Any rock from the 80's was just a progression from earlier artists. Reggae has been around since well before the 80s but artists like Bob Marley brought it to the forefront of American Culture. Music evolves by using a current medium and style then adding your own creative element. Bob Dylan was not the first person to come up with singing while strumming on a guitar with a harmonica, it was his lyrics and storytelling that made him a creative genius just as our current story tellers in Hip Hop, Ska and Reggae are creative for their content and not necessarily the medium.

If you look at rhyme schemes and content, you can hardly compare Gang Star to new artists like Atmosphere, Aesop Rock, Blue Scholars etc. who use complex allegory to tell stories and political commentary.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

The difference is

When Led Zep combined Blues and rock, (with Celtic and neo-classical john cage stuff (like in Whole lotta love), the forms were very diverse, and unconventional. Their music sounded very very different from 20 years before.

Switching out rhythms and rhyme schemes is hardly a huge enough difference to say there has been a change. Compare Black keys to Led Zepplin (40 years earlier) to Elvis (15 years earlier than led Zep), which one of those things is not like the other one ?

This is how you know...

That you're old. Or not cool. One, or the other... Or both.

Just sayin'. :)

Yes and no

Historically, there are stagnant periods of Artistic endeavor. The millennials have not been able to create the kinds of artistic movements that are original. Culturally they are looking backward. Probably has to do with the recognition that the Boomers totally fucked the economy, and so they will be less prosperous than the previous generation. The Boomers are obnoxious and won't get out of the way. They need to be kicked out, but to many of the millenials are looking for approval.

I challenge any cool millenials to give me an example of one succesful current artist that is not knocking off a style from the 90s or before. There is no millennial Bob Dylan, and if there was, he'd never go electric.

Ah yes, I've seen this before

I'm obsessed with Ave Maria, and I came across this when browsing through youtube for different versions of the same -- this is awesome (if you like opera or classical music). If you like this, listen to the Maria Callas version (also listen to her Ave Maria [Schubert]).

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

Oh, check it out, she sings Ave Maria too

...eerily similar to Maria Callas.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

The voice and face of an angel

Her parents must be proud. We can only hope they will have the good sense to keep her off of the recording industry's equivalent of the infamous "casting couch." Tragically, the entertainment industries are overrun with perverts (including pedophiles) who trade influence with sexual favors.

Beautiful

I heard an angel sing.

Entertainment industry's "Blowback", ha.

It really is a phenomena. So many child singers today are singing Opera and are unbelievably good at it. This girl is outstanding, hope she sounds this good when she reaches maturity. I can't get over how powerful and professional she sounds.
One video leads to another, and so I listened to a young 14 yr old boy, George Ioannou, on Greece Got Talent, where he sang Mama in a full manly Placido Domingo kind of voice. He will probably be a star soon.
I love these videos; catching these highlights is a lot better than watching the entire show.

I just realized Blowback is the wrong word, but can't think of the correct word for one-upping all the country and western type singing.

9 years old. No singing

9 years old. No singing lessons. And she did that. Wow!

I Got Tears In My Eyes Listening To Her

What a sweetheart!
