Tongue In Cheek – Lip Syncing

Let’s talk corporate music:

What’s important is the quality of the music – I like how all the 5 voices (and we are down to five – see below) are auto tuned to robot levels, and the musicians sound like karaoke – that’s what rock and roll has always been about., a lack of honesty and lots of playing it safe…

Well hasn’t it?


Music and the music business, has been reduced to 5. These 5 get more media attention than all the other musicians in the world, combined. Corporate music has marginalize the best of the rest into footnotes: Beyonce, Beiber, Gaga, Perry, or Swift.

Same as the Beatles and Elvis isn’t it? No. Both were major sensations in rock and roll and were very very big, but far from one of 5. Actually Broadway show tune albums did as well on the charts, AND Elvis was not alone or part of 5, he was part of all the new rock and roll artists and there were thousands. And the Beatles ushered in the British invasion of hundreds plus the revolution that had almost everyone forming a rock band after 1964. During those years there were all kinds of music too, soul music including Motown, bossa nova, MOR (Sinatra, Como, etc.) Broadway Soundtracks, healthy jazz and classical music releases, country artists. Then too folk music was big, and on and on. Now it’s just 5 or so. Not even 5 types of music, but 5 musicians.
Beyonce, Beiber, Gaga, Perry, or Swift.

Never in history have 5 musicians got more press than all the rest. Never in history have the music business been mostly 4 companies. Never in history has the major media companies owned the music companies too. Want a change, support the changers.
