Music is alive more than ever thanks to DE-vid and Soundcloud. You don't have to be a mega star to catch some attention. A lot of cool tricks from the past have been abandoned for more simplified music, like no real play with different rhythms, unusual chord changes and so on. But if you go to the late 80s ballads that were played on the radio then, they are just as horrible as today's music. Also something that is different today and goes back over 15 years is that kids listen to music no matter how new or old it is. In the 80s and 90s you could not do that, not socially accepted at all. Music just needs to be restarted and never forget music is more than what is on the radio. Radio is pretty much dead anyway.

"do you ever flick throught the radio and think to yourself: all these songs sound the same?" no, in radios in our country found that to put old songs in radio, they don´t need to pay money, so most of music there is from 50s-90s

Yes you have a point but you're not really comparing like with like. Sgt. Pepper was pretty exceptional. Most of 50's 60's and 70's 'pop' was just easy listening dross. I'm not convinced Bert Kaempfert and his Orchestra is automatically better than Robin Thicke just because Bert has more violins.

Ironically, KRS One, a Tribe called Quest, were kicked off Jive Records to make way for Britney Spears.... Def Jam Recordings signed Justin Bieber.... Frank Zappa's daughter and the valley girls' like totally iconic omg awesome grammar, took over the English language worldwide... Black music in the UK was renamed Street music in the 90s... gradually gradually, hip hop and soul was also hijacked in the 1990s.... Lauren Hill quit music because she wanted to sing more gospel songs.... Auto-tune was over used and the devolution of the Vocoder and Talk-box... and of powerful soulful voices began... R. Kellys stole Aaron Hall's lime light, because he sang about sex, instead of love, BBC radio overplayed him and everyone lapped up R. Kelly.......

Don't be that negative. Thanks to Internet and platforms such like patreon and others websites any musician can live from their own art. You don't need a hit to make money, or a contract with some brand or anything like that. There's no pressure from any music factory. Without that, musicians can make music in a more artistic way, more altruistic. Obviously the 'pop' scene is getting worse, but the underground scene is getting better and now they can make decent money "just" with talent, an internet connection and constancy

What he's saying about liking a pop song more after repeated listens being whack because if it was a good song you'd like it straight away runs counter to his assertion that you used to listen to music more times and appreciate its nuance more over time..........

Truth is, it is *WESTERN* music that is awful. Eastern music, on the other hand, is vastly better. Groups like the Yoshida Brothers and Wagakki Band push the horizons of what can be done with traditional instruments, and there isn't the lyrics factories that churn out mindless crap that is the hallmark of western music. Most songs are either written by a member of the group performing them, or in close collaboration with said groups.

Music isnt getting worse, pop music is for sure, but not music as a whole... The bob dylans, led zeppelins, marvin gayes etc musical geniuses and/or authentic creators are still very much around, they just arent getting the airplay because of the force feeding of the garbage people hear on the radio and mainstream trends. Seriously you just have to look a little harder and you will find all those gems and styles you thought had disappeared.

The main problem is the record companies pushing artists they think will be successful to the fore, that's why you get saccharine monstrosities like Justin Bieber. The millennial whoop is cancer also and the number one guaranteed way to piss me off.

Also why I will never forgive Steve Jobs, for pulling the stake out of the heart of both the record industry and Apple by releasing the iPod. If it never was and nothing similar ever was, artists would be selling their tracks directly too us now, and we could make up our mind what we liked rather than some fat sweaty moribund fuck of a record industry executive.

Several of these arguments are overly reductive, for example, about audio compression. Professional recording studios are more than capable of accurately recording any given instrument throughout their dynamic range, so the waveforms are really only compressed. They don't expand the audio signal beyond it's capacity. No one does that. Similarly, every specific example was quite biased, comparing the best of the older generations to the worst of the current generations. While some of these arguments do have a point, this video is portraying them unfairly.

I'll be completely honest, I do listen to really old stuff like Hotel California, a couple Jazz and Classical Music here and there. But I mostly listen to music from anime and video games such as the My Hero Academia Soundtracks and Legend of Zelda soundtracks. I never bothered with today's modern music. A lot of my old classmates were shocked that I didn't know some pretty popular artists in today's world.

You'd probably be very much surprised to discover that there WAS music even before the 60s. I know it's hard to believe because everyone these days just assumes that all music is Rock and Roll or its variants. You would also be quite amazed to discover...mirabile dictu!...that there are other forms of music besides "songs." In fact, the greatest music of all is a century or two old and it's been devolving ever since.

New music utilizes autotune if you can't sing worth a shit. It's too repetitive and there is no story told anymore. It's become a "sex sells" industry to the nth degree. I miss the 80s synthsizer and rock guitar!

The 21st century, losing intellect for popularity and recognition. Songs today are mere background noise. Half a century ago music was quite enjoyable, now it is not. Artist's in the early 1900s (1900-1950) did not use brainwashing techniques. Brainwashing, sounds like a certain dictator that we all know and hate.

Nah...don't buy all the pseudo-science. You've always had pre-manufactured pop. There has always been a bunch of crappy pop songs. "Yummy, yummy, yummy, I got love in my tummy." comes to mind. Not even sure I'm remembering it right but who cares. Personally, I miss when music was played by musicians. When you take the musicians intimate relationship with their instrument away...practically all pop music is made on machines now, and I don't mean the recording process...you are practically always left with simply a collage, essentially cut and paste. That's an essentially different process than the musician's passionate, sensual, physical relationship with their instrument gained from years of study and trial and error. Cut and paste...sampling...is a very different process. Colder, more removed, less personal. And the music reflects it.

If you want to dig beyond the superficial check out music in the A=432 Hz tuning. The frequency of the notes can make a huge difference in how the music affects us. The establishment of the A=440 Hz concert pitch in the 50's was really a subtle war on consciousness. If you are a musician.... retune and experiment, see how 432 Hz tuning makes you feel.

This video has way too much cherry picking to actually feel like it's trying to say something other than how big of a hate boner this guy has for modern music. And that's coming from someone who hates modern pop and almost everything that's on the radio nowadays. I would've liked to see more empirical things than "this is the peak of the 60s vs the valleys of the 10s, see how much worse it is now??" If there was a paper you based this on, why not link the paper in the description and say the numbers the paper used?
for me i either like, hate, or am neutral about a song when i first hear it. now there is the possibility that i might dislike a song when i first heard it but i hear it again after a while and end up liking it, but i've always attributed that to change in taste (such as for example, certain foods, i absolutely HATED pickles as a kid, now i adore them! this is the same with a ton of other things, food, games, movies, music ect) i've never forced myself to like a song hh,, if i don't like it, then that's that

Music is more alive today than it ever was.. Turn off the radio and explore whats out there. You really don't have to dig deep to find original, soulful music in any genre. The contemporary mainstream music seems to constitute a very small minority of all the great music out there, at least from where I'm looking.

Lack of feeling on the part of musicians. The replacement of rhythm by beat (mechanical repetition). Replacement of musicality with sheer volume or discord. Forgetting that there's enough discord in life; what we need is more harmony. Allowing mediocrity or crap to take center stage equally with high quality musical inspiration.
