THE DEATH OF MUSIC?

#AntisocialNetworking #Trolling #CyberBullying #Hate #Music #TheDeathofMusic #MileyCyrus

Good late evening, Synapse Circuit Readers! How’s it going? Do you listen to music? Do you buy music?

I feel prompted to write this article after someone posted pictures of the Virus... Yes, Miley Cyrus!

AM I REALLY THAT OLD? ALREADY??
Y’know, I am in my late 30s and I would have thought that I am still young – especially with retirement age rising! One upon a time I would say that I was a music fan, however today I am not so sure. What I mean is that I while I will listen to some of my favourite artists through YouTube I just can’t get into music promoted today!

As a child I never was exposed to the sexuality that is coming across in a lot of those music videos (sic). Yes, as a child I knew that many songs I listened to had sexuality in the theme. But I guess it was very fortunate that music videos back weren’t as explicit as they are today! And when the odd track featured nudity it was played after the 21:00 watershed. One had to know in advance to expect such a screening and stay up late for it – if one could get away with it if it fell on a school day! Lol! But as a child I was very much into the actual music. I even got myself a guitar and tried my best to teach myself how to play! There again, I am just a lone man! My tastes and experiences in my era growing up obviously do not count as the majority. But as much as I was a hormone driven young teenager I managed to balance it out with pursuing writing and, of course, music. I would like to think that in my era there was balance.

Tonight I looked at the pictures of Miley Cyrus that was posted up earlier and I felt pretty disturbed.

CHILD PORN
One has to wonder as to what Miley Cyrus can achieve with this new sexual persona. She’s gone from Disney child to dizzy harlot! Why? Ok, I understand that expressing one’s sexuality is a rite of passage in the music entertainment industry. It goes like this:

You’re starting out and want attention... What’s the best way to achieve that? Sexual exploitation! It is not the domain of one gender. Bowie has done it; Prince and Marilyn Manson too! I suppose everyone remembers when Kylie Minogue donned a golden pair of hotpants! But all the aforementioned artist were mature adults. Prince, as far as I know, was never a child star. Madonna was well into her 30s when she produced music and a book based on sex and although Madonna managed to get some publicity for her project the nature of it was passé quicker than it appeared on the shelves. Apart from this article, nobody talks about her infamous book. I would imagine that people have binned them or have left it in the attic gathering dust. My point is that sexuality was still something that adults did and if you wanted to grow up prematurely there was a price to pay: unwanted pregnancy! I do remember friends of mine seriously stressing out when they let temptation get the better of them. I sure glad that it wasn’t me! Imagine being a father at 14! Uh-uh!

But an artist – if you can call her that - such as Miley Cyrus is certainly sending out the wrong message to her young male and female followers. She, at 21, still fresh faced can pass for younger! Not only is she sexualizing children, she’s also having to play with the suggestion of being a Lolita. I think she’s in danger of making child porn acceptable. A few decades ago I don’t think anyone could have predicted how Hollywood’s sex industry has permeated the mainstream media to the point whereby we’re no longer shocked sexuality. I do believe MTV is responsible for featuring “reality” shows based on a porn producer. And, as you know, sex and music have always been closely related. I guess it is natural and inevitable that the two mediums of porn and music would collide in a neat little package for the masses to appeal to the lowest denominator.

BACK TO MY ORIGINAL QUESTION: WHO BUYS MUSIC TODAY?
No doubt the Internet and the MP3 format have had a lot to do with how the music industry has changed today. But I really do think that the industry facilitated a political change whereby it is preferable to promote music that makes people docile.

Can you think of a better way to make people docile than to bombard young, fragile minds with sex all the time? I do believe that a basic rhythm and the message of sex, promiscuity, alcohol, drugs and affluence may be preventing growing adults to think about politics and the environment.

I buy music, but it is rarely modern. I still buy into the idea of the ‘Alternative’ and will purchase actual physical CDs from such artists. And once in a while I will buy music from artists that were once at the forefront of great music and not this electronic sludge that passes for music.

But music sales must be so bad that the industry has to use the suggestion of child porn to sell it. This is a very, very strange time for commercial music. I almost prefer the reluctant to grow up artist to this nonsense! Even the Spice Girls never stooped so low! Arguably, the Spice Girls made some of the best Pop music of their era.

I do think that the Spice Girls were the last era of Bubble Gum genre. Today’s genre of Pop music must be Bubble Child Porn. I mean, look at Justin Bieber: he looks androgynous and coming into puberty. And none of those young acts are in control of themselves. They are manipulated by Svengalis that do not have the “talent’s” interest at heart.

It’s money making at the crudest. It is also destroying a sense of family. Where are Miley Cyrus’ parents? I guess they don’t want to kill the golden goose.

It’s a sad reflection of the family today.
