Why Is Modern Pop Music So Terrible?

Postby skmo » Sun Sep 03, 2017 11:27 pm

Have any of you ever said "Music has gotten really lousy today" to yourself or to others? It turns out you are on to something.

How does this apply to the gospel? Music is one of the major influences in our lives. How dramatically have The Beatles, The Doors, Elvis Presley, Pink Floyd, and others like them changed our society? It's no wonder we're falling apart as a nation, because we're being led into darkness and having kids believe it's actually the light.

Governments don’t live together, people live together. With governments you don’t always get a fair word or a fair fight. Well I’ve come here to give you either one - Or get either one from you.

If not for modern pop music how would young women learn the fantastic apspects of dark occult symbolism?

I suggest people watch these four videos:

Beyonce - Haunted.
Rihanna - ANTI-diary (full version)
Taylor Swift - Look What You Made Me Do
Katy Perry - Bon Appetit

Do you think these have a message? If so, what?

Terrible - or funny? :D

I think that for fast-ish music to sound good (lyrics and sound) - the artists need to have had some life experience - otherwise it sounds fake.
There are a lot of Christian songs I like - but some come on (K-love) that reminds me of the above.

Some songs that have good messages and good beats &/or guitar...

One may enjoy the examples above and not fall victim to the manipulative overt and/or covert messages in the music or the associated culture. The more light you receive, the more darkness becomes repelling.

Rap and metal are popular with male audiences. Pop is aimed at females and feminized males. Of course there are women who like metal but they tend to be the more intelligent and rebellious; in other words thinkers.

While I like "Spike in My Veins" better this illustrates that non-pop bands are more into thinking. Note, "Illuminati" was created by Korn during the Obama regime.

It isn't music. It's just noise. Thumping and banging, and wailing. These female "singers?" sound like sick cats. Horrid, screechy screaming. It's just horrible.
Even the Mexican "music", just thumping and banging.
But what about "country" music. Where is that video about how they just throw target words together with no story or lyric line at all. Just pandering with "country" words.
And then this "country singer" who says he is in favor of "gun control" whatever the idiot thinks he means by that? This no talent churl says "it's the cowboy in him?" Who ever heard of a cowboy without a gun? No one. What a total phony.

The garbage that gets away as "music" today is absurd.

One nice thing for me is the church. Music every Sunday. It's the only "music" that I listen to.

[youtube]Once upon a time there were some good songs out there, just here and there.
Two examples come to mind at this moment.
Easybeats, Friday on My Mind.

ABBA. I couldn't stand to listen or watch them as Onyetta had a mesmerizing effect upon me. I was just too attracted to her. Here she is after she had her teeth fixed.
But listen to Chiquitita. That is really such a wonderful song.
Well, let me get them here:

If there were no male pop stars who would your teenage daughters put up posters of in their rooms, who would they scream and cry and faint over at concerts and mall appearances? without female pop stars where would your teenage daughters get their fashion from?

Hold on!! Lots of radio music stinks, but there's lots of good stuff. Some have decent to good lyrics.

And if I ever hear "she just wants" I turn the station immediately. That song plays like 1,000x/ week.

If we listen, we rarely watch the videos. Not even for great songs. It just makes most of them reaally bad.

BTW, ABBA was horrible for me. We basically don't listen to them. Many of their songs, especially their hits, are about divorce, breaking up, playing hard, etc. Not good stuff for future marriages...

Ever ask what societal programming has been employed to cause young women to worship as idols these music stars? I suppose it may be the same employed in the days of old when the "Sons of God" had throngs of regular human women lining up to reproduce with them.

Again, watch these videos and tell me there is not an occult-transhumanist agenda at play. Your daughters or grand-daughters have seen them.

Beyonce - Haunted.
Rihanna - ANTI-diary (full version)
Taylor Swift - Look What You Made Me Do
Katy Perry - Bon Appetit

Most popular music aimed at the masses has evolved into pure crap. Just another industry Satan has infiltrated. There is good music being made today but most young people do not care for it. The Vigilant Citizen website does some really good breakdowns of popular music videos being released. It's insane to see the symbolism and dark stuff being shoved down our throats. This is a sick world. These music videos are leaving nothing to the imagination of what the Great and Spacious building would have looked like to Lehi and Nephi. Granted it's not just music videos that accomplish that, it's everywhere you look now.

Just the other day a video of a little boy (maybe 6'ish?) dancing on an episode of Ellen surfaced on my Facebook feed. I did not have the sound on so the subtitles came up. The lyrics to that song were awful to say the least. Disgusting. But the crowd was cheering him on like nothing was wrong. It was a song called Sauce It Up by Lil Uzi Vert (which when you say his name sounds like Lucifer). I looked at the comments on the video and did not come across a single comment of anyone concerned over the lyrics. So the entire audience and the millions of viewers are cheering on this little boy for his great talent but ignoring the fact that he is dancing to an awful song, with horrible lyrics, sung by an "artist" called Lucifer (essentially).

This is the world we live in.

I turned on pandora and one of the songs started to make my stomach hurt. Most song's chords are 1, 4, 5, and 1, if you are lucky to get that many. No more musical variation than twinkle little star. I think music can be a portal to take you places in your spirit or attract spirits to you. The notes in music now days slur into each other but not on key which for me creates a feeling of sinking and illness in my body. Like the first 4 opening measures of Gangham Style, the first 2 notes of each measure slur into each other but in an off tune slide. It makes me feel like my tummy is coming apart from the inside.

This world isnt God kingdom, not everything was wise to reveal to people, only Joseph Smith was shown the bigger picture in parts. Some of which would have lead to many leaving the church if revealed.

Let me address the high voice.
It's known as falsetto. Any man can artificially raise his voice and talk or sing in a high pitched voice.

Here's one example from long ago:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlHsOmT ... 0Christian

A comedian, Gallagher, made a joke about them. Walk like a man. Talk like a man. But sing like a girl.

Yes, and when I was singing all the time and working with a voice coach I was able to do a little better than I can today, which is probably 4 or 5 notes. However, some singers, Prince for one example, have an incredible range. I saw Prince perform in West Valley City back about a decade ago, I was amazed at his voice.
