The Important Element Of Music

"Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons, and you will find that it is to the soul what the water bath is to the body." Oliver Wendell Holmes

This explains to a science in my opinion what is "true" music. Not the radio-money-push-disorientated-chaos they label as music. If it doesn't come from the soul, it's a mere imitation.

It's like having some Beats By Dr.Dre headphones that cost $300, then you find some headphones that "look" like the B.B.D.D's but are only $80. You plug them in and the quality isn't as great....that's the reason why there so cheap....the importance of the product isn't there. Sort of like the soul that is suppose to be into the songs on the radio...it isn't there. If music from the radio of today was to be turn into a human body, a heart would not come standard.

I just had this conversation with a friend of mine the other day. I personally feel like if you're only listening to music on the radio, you're really missing out. I'm not saying that there isn't any good stuff that's being played, I just feel like the mainstream shit is missing a lot of heart and at times lacks creativity.

Well said though homie...

-exactly...it really is a shame. There is so much more beyond what mainstream radio has to offer. And your right, mainstream is slacking in those areas. The reason I can say is that it's more about the music now than rather what really sounds good.

- you and I politic about this on the regular so you already know.
