sorry, just expressing my resentment towards the whole state music is in. half naked chicks with vain and stupid lyrics showing off their butts,hey, why cant we just get some good music as it was in the old times?

In year two thousand and nine

Fake art and lyrics vain
I think I got the wrong train
I do not belong, this cannot be real
in year two thousand and nine.

You say you rock, I say you do not
smash guitars and look cool,all you do
it's all an image, promotions,commercials
in year two thousand and nine.

Princesses, lolitas with their mini skirts
showing off their 'talented' legs
it's all a dreadful show put up by a pedophile
in year two thousand and nine.

Lyrics talking about bed time stories
and mtv's advertisements promoting whores
back to the seventies when everything was lush
in year two thousand and nine.

HA! I like how you put the word "talented" in quotation marks! Yes, I completely agree. Though, I do believe there is still good music out there, that there are still real artists in the world of music. You just have to pick through all the crap to find the good stuff...

Congratulations on the editor's choice!

A very intelligent write that expresses my sentiments exactly. I am from another generation. I graduated high school in 1966. The popular songs of my day are being used in commercials, films and are also being remade. Why, because they are good. Today, pop music, hip hop, rap and such is mindless and bad in every way. I listen to the music of my childhood when rock n roll was born. It is still great.

You are so right, Eva!!!
An applause to your poem, both for its form and its content!

A terrific piece. I agree with the sentiment, but it was also well written and flowed beautifully.

I agree far too much with this.
I wish that people could understand that music should not be a business or a sex-driven industry, it should be art.
I miss the kind of pure music where it was chords and vocals and beats strung together to create magic, rather than big chested girls and guys with no shirts on dancing in strobe lights.

I liked this write, being in bands most of my life, it seems if you want to hit the city scene it entails legs up to your neck and a push up bra... as for being able to sing.. hey that's not a requirement! Whatever happened to good ol rock and roll eh? I'm sure it's still out there somewhere! ;-)
