Note: You're probably wondering how
I got started on this "Orwellian Music Theme".
Well, it began very easily... I was watching
a commercial, for Nike maybe. There were these
old folks dancing "polka style" to hip-hop music.
Later, some break dancers were wearing cowboy hats
and jammin' to a banjo.
Until Tim McGraw hit the hip-hop scene.
Mustard hit the windshield.
This ain't no joke > it's happening.
On with the story.
(Quote) A music dies when it becomes
a parody of itself, which has happened
to some extent with rock...
---Chet Atkins, Dec. 15, 1974 People Magazine
Thirty years later, we see rock artists
like Kid Rock cross into country, and
Tim McGraw ventures onto the hip-hop scene.
I believe, (and you may or may not agree), the music industry as a whole is in turmoil. Companies, artists, and groups jockeying for position in a rapidly changing digital world.
This I can predict... the music industry consolidate and attempt to widen their appeal and shock the public. Top artists will increasingly cross boundaries.
Will it all be one music... someday?
