#6: 30 Day Blog Challenge-Your Views of Mainstream Music
I am disappointed in a lot of today's music. I love old school R&B, hip-hop, and soul music. I even love alternative music, 80's pop, country, jazz, etc. I pretty much like everything except the O music: gO-gO, emO, and technO. That being said, I'm tired of music that isn't remotely artistic and is hyper-sexualized. It's a struggle to find a song that doesn't refer to women as property or having the sole purpose of sexually satisfying or otherwise validating a man (whether it's a female artist making this assertion about herself or a male artist declaring this). There's a big difference between Salt and Pepa's "I'll Take Your Man" and "Bottoms Up". These days I listen to a lot of oldies because at least I won't need a shower after listening.
