So…Lady Gaga is in my living room singing ‘You and I’ in a dress not made out of meat

Up until a few years ago, I’ve always had difficulty with finding current music that didn’t want me to rip off my ears and scream in frustration. This was especially true in 2010. I blame Lady Gaga for being all the rage back then. I seriously can’t remember any other music artist who was popular at the time. Well, maybe Beyoncé, but Beyoncé’s timeless. She’s also a survivor.

Ugh. I really need to stop posting pop songs from the early 2000s. I guess it’s a part of my brand though.

I’ve noticed for the last five years or so that mainstream music has changed dramatically. It literally went from this:

to this.

Apparently we no longer want to feel as if we’re in a futuristic night club grinding with other hormonal twenty-somethings. We want to feel as if we’re lying down on a beach staring at wave after wave forgetting our stressful lives even just for a moment.

OK, there is still a lot of electronic, over-stylized, over-sexed pop music out there, but I have been noticing that a lot of songs from the past few years have a nostalgic quality to them, as if I’m being transported to the past. I don’t know, am I right or am I just a crazy person trying to live in the past?

But, then again, look at the song that’s on top of the billboard charts as of right now.

And it’s Ed Sheeran. Ed Sheeran. Not someone you’d think who would write a song that makes you want to make love to a stranger in a nightclub filled with other strangers making out with other strangers. But, hey, it is what it is.

  1. I am not very fond of today’s music, but I have a few songs I like, songs that have an amazing message or just make me relax. But I am more into jazz and balads. hey calm me down <3

  2. Ed Sheeran has changed the face of music with his sweet love songs and stuff. I think it’s just one of those things… I remember a time when hip-hop took the world by storm and we were really all about getting Tipsy and taking about panties or whatever else OutKast had on that Speakerboxxx/The Love Below album. Then there was a huge, huge emo rock scene come 2005-2008, right?
