Modern music is crap -- Is WAP as good as Dylan?

Wet A** P*ssy is “the defining song of 2020” according to so-called critics/journalists who make a living fawning over this crap. WAP debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 100. For weeks it squatted atop the charts like a sweaty naked fat woman on a toilet. In “the raunchiest set the Grammy’s have ever seen” that annual television info-award-mercial featured a live performance of WAP. Incompetently acclaimed and shamelessly promoted by those same so-called critics/journalists, the spectacle held all the artistry of a Mexican border town donkey show.


Maybe people are wising up. Grammy ratings were down 53%.

I liked it better when My Girl was the defining song and my parents thought The Beatles were degenerates. Who knows what they thought of The Rolling Stones.

Music? The purpose is to get people talking and thus to shove total degeneracy in the faces of innocent children. Weimar 2.0, according to plan.

The difference between what passes for lyrics today, and Dylan--from his beginning in Greenwich Village 1961 to 2021--is proof positive of cultural decline. From then until now, Dylan has maintained the ability to define us and astonish us with his words. Awarding him the Nobel Prize for Literature was richly deserved. His words will outlive him, and us all. FYI? Look at the lyrics of "Visions of Johanna" from 1966. Profundity and humor. On May 24, he'll turn 80. Long may he run.

Some of Dylan's songs were ok. As long as they were sung by someone other than Dylan.

#10's point is well taken, if one considers Dylan as a singer compared with, say, Pavarotti or Paul McCartney as a melodist. Dylan doesn't have a dulcet voice (except for Nashville Skyline). One critic over a half century ago wrote that Dylan sang like a cow with her foot in a cow guard (or something like that). But one thing Dylan does extremely well is get across his lyrics. Many singers have done their own versions of "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright." But none ever got this song right. Dylan said this song took him months to get just right. And he did! Just perfect. (Dylan: "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" 1962) He's an effective vocalist, not bel canto. That was never the point. It was getting across the words. That he always did very well.

Popular music has been on a downhill slide since the early '90s as hip-hop and sampling began to infest everything from pop to rock to country. I began retreating more and more into jazz, classical, and the occasional gem I might stumble across from artists from the late '70s and '80s. While it is a generational thing, modern "music" is less about soul and clever lyrics and true musical ability and more about how well you can steal ideas, program synths, or spout "F-bombs". Its analog can be found in Hollywood which seemed to run out of ideas at about the same time and now just churns out sequels or "reboots" of truly original material. greyseal

One of my co-workers listens to a phenomenom known as "country rap". He wears earbuds, but has an annoying habit of speaking the...prose...out loud. I gather the subject matter is about being a thuggish redneck and being perversely proud of it. It is trite and tedious.

I grew up during WWII when "Swing was king." The Dorsey brothers, Tommy and Jimmy; Benny Goodman; Artie Shaw; Harry James; and, yes, Spike Jones. Lyrics told a story rather than repeating the same four lines over and over. Songs were sung by people with voices who didn't need to yell the lyrics and you could understand every word they sung, Codas were written rather than just having the music fade away at the end of the recording. Music, then, was enjoyable.

I've seen Dylan twice in concert. Couldn't understand a word he said or sang but it was good just to see him. He is indeed a great song writer. As for modern music, big corporate music is a product.. produced, packaged, and marketed for the masses and it is almost universally horrible. Streaming is where you find REAL talent nowadays.

There's a lot of blame to go around for what has happened to popular culture in general. As for music, when you get three big record companies controlling 90% of what gets played on the radio and a just a handful of media companies owning most of this country's leading radio stations, listeners will be force-fed terrible music. At one point in the 1990s, Clear Channel (now known as I-Heart-Radio) took in more than 50% of the radio advertising dollars in 98 of the top 100 markets in the U.S. (The two exceptions were Akron and I believe either Rochester or Syracuse, New York). When you've got a monopoly like that, you can play anything you want.

I remember Dylan responding to critics in the '60's said he didn't understand the problem, he got the notes right. As for WAP, it graphically diminishes the notion of sex but there have always been explicit songs. But now it's mainstreamed so yeah, diminished and insufferably self-absorbed.

Side note, "Watchtower".

Communist Revolution. Find the song lyrics and look up February Revolution/October Revolution/Kulaks, etc. It will make more sense and the end of the song will send shivers up your spine... because I hear history repeats itself.

Just one month ago, in my 83rd year, I discovered Keb Mo. He is an absolute genius, purveyor of love and joy. And he is also an excellent guitarist. And of special interest is the fact that he, like Niggas With Attitude, is straight out of Compton. Which poses the challenging question - how can the very same environment produce NWA full of anger and hatred, yet simultaneously produce one Blues singer full of love, humor, and joy? Keb Mo is al over you tube, and I recommend him to you people. My favorite songs of his are titled 'She Just Want to Dance, and i Liked me better the way I was before, which is a really funny break up song. As for Bob Dylan, I never found him to be interesting, or a good musician. Yawns to Dylan, hurrahs to Keb Mo. And for what it's worth, I always thought Mary Ann was hotter than Ginger.

There is plenty of good music being made by good musicians today. Problem is that the mass audience is cruder with short attention spans ignorant of the complexities of quality music. Majority of today's teenagers are lazy with no desire to work or learn beyond what is necessary to get by. The 5% to 10% of those who will succeed do not fill stadium seats to make good artist wealthy. Are societal future is not bright. No need to wear shades in my retirement.

#11 - Thank you for the eloquent defense of Dylan's voice. I didn't listen as a fan of his "singing" voice, but as a fan of the poet's voice giving life to his words. I admit, listening to Bob it is an acquired taste for many, but appreciation of his poetry is available for all. Been a fan since my high school years and have a solid album collection. Unfortunately, TK just doesn't "get" Dylan and I only "get" to spin the old vinyl when he's in town. #22 hits on an important point. Music is a business controlled by a handful of entities. Just as the commies infiltrated every aspect of our culture from the Scouts to Hollywood, the music industry was a primary target. It was music execs that green-lighted the thug culture of rap music at the expense of jazz, blues, classic rock and now the last bastion of Americana, country music, has fallen prey. It was all by design and not driven by consumer choice. How much consumer choice does a "tween" or teenager really have when bombarded by a coordinated effort of advertising and product? When Rap debuted in the 80's it was first marketed to the teens. Forty years later the evil is mainstream.

The Center for Disease Control announced in February that schools could safely reopen, and that it was “critical” that they do so. They said the risk of COVID transmission in schools was minimal — even if teachers were not vaccinated — and the damage to children by remaining closed was maximal. Experience in the schools that have opened bears that out. There have not been cases of widespread transmission of COVID in reopened schools. That’s undoubtedly because children are nearly immune to COVID. And their teachers retire long before they reach the COVID-vulnerable post-65 age group. That CDC announcement that teachers, vaccinated or not, should return to work was two months ago

Which of these large paintings is better? One is by renowned artist Jackson Pollock, and one is by yours truly, The Aspen Beat. I’m not known as an artist – heck, I’m not even known as a writer – but I can still apply paint to canvas, to myself and to everything else in the vicinity. That’s where my similarities with Pollock end. Pollock was born in Cody, Wyoming, got expelled from two high schools, liked Mexican murals, was an alcoholic, and died drunk when he rolled his convertible. The car interior wound up looking like one of his paintings. On an artistic level, Pollock is less admirable.

Mostly, they were exactly what Dr. Seuss intended them to be – entertaining, mischievous children’s literature. Dr. Seuss succeeded for nearly a century. In that time, millions of children learned to read and Dr. Seuss was awarded numerous prizes.

The vaccination rate is 4% in France, Spain, Sweden and Italy, and 5% in Finland, Greece, Poland and Norway.

The “Flynn Effect” is the phenomena identified by intelligence researcher James Flynn. He found that average intelligence quotients, or IQ’s, as measured by standardized tests were steadily increasing through the course of the 20th century. That sounds quite natural because, after all, each generation gets better nurturing. They get better health, improved medical care, more nutritious food and greater schooling. But IQ is supposed to be mainly about nature, not nurture. Nurturing can certainly affect a person’s well-being, but in theory it doesn’t change a person’s IQ much (except of course when the nurturing is so bad that it produces negative neurological effects).

In Columbus, Ohio on April 20, 2021, Officer Nicholas Reardon had to make a split second decision to intervene as Ma’Khia Bryant rushed toward her potential victim with a knife, after ignoring lawful orders to “get down.” Reardon fired his pistol, striking Bryant and ending the attack. Aid was rendered at the scene, but Bryant was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. Neighbors reported that Bryant “was in full attack mode” and also said:

Why Wind and Solar Energy Are Doomed to Failure 44 replies

Wind and solar energy are both essentially obsolete technologies. There is a reason why only the very rich or the very adventurous sail across oceans: the wind is unreliable, and at best produces relatively little energy. Nevertheless, liberals have concocted fantasies whereby all of our electricity, or perhaps our entire economy, will be powered by those fickle sources. There are a number of reasons why this will never happen, but a paper published last week by Center of the American Experiment argues that land use constraints are the most basic reason why wind and solar are inexorably destined to fail.

A journalist and CNN analyst on Friday advanced the controversial claim that an Ohio police officer responding to a knife-wielding teenager should have shot her "in the leg" and should have considered not even using his gun to address the situation. April Ryan, a reporter with theGrio, made the argument—a common one among police critics—on Friday’s edition of HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher. The show’s panel was discussing in part the recent police-involved shooting of 16-year-old Ohio resident Ma’Khia Bryant, who was attempting to stab several other teenagers with a large butcher knife when a responding officer shot and killed her.

There’s something off about Kamala Harris. And no, I’m not talking about her hard-left political beliefs, the lies she tells, or her endless reinventing herself for political advancement.

A few videos are making the rounds showing a wild brawl taking place at one of the gates in Miami International Airport. We don’t know what started the brawl, although the media are reporting that the police did eventually arrest one person for disorderly conduct. The primary victim, however, does not want to press charges, so the matter will almost certainly disappear. What makes one of the videos so compelling is the fact that it seemly represents the breakdown of law and order across American cities.

Journalist Lee Smith hits the sweet spot in his discussion of the U.S. Postal Service conducting surveillance on Americans. As Smith notes the targeting is not to identify the political ideology of “all Americans”, rather the objective is surveillance of people who likely did not vote for Joe Biden. (Snip) this type of activity is one long continuum. The IRS was previously used; federal contractors for the FBI have previously been used; allied Big Tech companies have been used; and now the United States Postal Service is running a covert surveillance program against Americans that sounds suspiciously like the prior DHS announcement. So when you put
