Re: Your Favorite 80's artists/bands

lmfao...I find all the ones you names to be uh...somewhat boring. I respect the musicianship and all but I just personally can't really bring myself to listen.

*still trying to remember the people I forgot*

hmm....are you sure your thinking of the right bands...i mean boring...now that statement is a little well kind of twisted...i mean

rap... usually doesnt include playing instruments and the beats are most of the time put together by machines...and some of the artists dont even write their own songs...now

all the artists/bands i mentioned play instruments and write their own music...hmm...yeah they are kind of boring i guess...

*i forgot men at work...yes i knew i would remember*

First off...just because someone writes a song themselves doesn't mean that I can tolerate hearing it, lmao. That aside...

DAYUM

Any artist who doesn't write their own songs does not get my respect. Half the battle in hip hop is getting the damn song written in the first place. The rules are totally different from traditional songwriting and I can tell you from lots of experience that it's actually twice as hard. Not only are there dozens of technical elements to a rap song that the average listener doesn't stop to consider but there are as many syllables in a single verse in rap as there are in an entire song from most any other genre. As far as I'm concerned, I don't give a shit if they play an instument or not because I know how hard this shit is. Once you get past the song writing there's the challenge of learning to actually rap...and no, it's not just talking fast. Just as in singing you gotta be on key and be able to execute a melody. That said, most artists do know how to play an instument or two...or five. They have to in order to write their songs. Personally you'll never see me pick up an instrument in a live show but that doesn't change the fact that I know how to play five instruments quite well and three others at a more basic level.

ahem....i think i'm done for now but I could go into the technical songwriting stuff I was talking about for about another 3 pages worth.

im sorry LUCIDD...its just to surprising to hear someone calling those artists/bands..well boring...their attention to melodies and lyrics are just mind blowing...and to know it all comes from the band/artist themselves is just great

Re: Your Favorite 80's artists/bands

So is the attention to melody and lyrics in hip hop...it's just different than those bands.

Just to give you an idea...here's the master tutorial list for a forum that I've written for in the past (yes I teach this stuff, lmao)

An element of rap that a lot of people don't consider is freestyling...not only do you have to include all those elements and make the story you're telling still make sense and touch people but you gotta do it live, off the top of your head, and with no prior knowledge of the music that will accompany you. A person has to be able to get in front of people and make a song up on the spot. If you're battling you gotta reply to the person that went before you too so it's truly off the top cuz you have no idea going in of what they might say about you.

sorry bout jumping on you but rap gets so little respect sometimes and it's a shame cuz there are some true artists out there

ive always thought rap gets to much respect maybe because its the artists like 50cent, Big Tymers, etc. that get so much attention for nothing but their is some good hip-hop like outkast they are awesome..and some of eminems stuff is okay...it just depends...and dont worry i jump on people when they say coldplay is crap or someone that i truly like is bad...expecially when they have no clue what they are talking about because they havent even tried to listen to it...but not everyone is like that..and i am NOT like that...

I agree about 50 Cent...i love the beats in his music and 21 Questions is a sweet song but he's generally over-rated. He's hyped up to be the next Tupac and he's not...not by a long shot. The only similarity is that they both write their lives but that's where it ends.

Coldplay isn't crap...they're just not my thing, lol
