I can no longer listen to this day and age music. It is played in my office, and I can only tune it out.
Music used to be enjoyable for me. In fact, I liked playing the hits in a band, and learning the riffs and melodies.
I can't put a finger on it, except that music today is more of a manufactured product than of real talent. To be more precise, music today is like processed cheese. And just like processed cheese, it is forced upon us by those that sell it (similar to the way illegal drugs are pushed, where you have little choice).
For me, just like there is a sea of movies, tv shows, and music, I stray from the mainline media hype these days. For those deep in and selling the manufactured products, well, I only have one bit of advice - get out while you can; people are starting to evolve past the old ways of pushing products.
