a conversation in music


If music is the language of the soul and heart

.....then most modern music
is small talk.

I don't have much..
..........patience for
small talk

I agree with you...but I have a feeling we'd have different ideas of what constitutes small talk.

I'm with MW. A lot of today's music is trash but there are some good ones too.

I will say, however, that when I listen to the songs I grew up with, there is such an amazing sense of nostalgia and those songs were so much more real. I miss that kind of music. Even if I enjoy the music of today.

Small talk is conversation..for the sake of fill space and time.

Big talk comes from a deeper need to say something...

I also think that when we are younger, we aren't as picky with the things that we choose to listen to...and later we end up really liking it because it brings back memories...

So there probably was a similar amount of trash and good songs, we just have better associations with the older ones, and therefore they have more meaning.

Just my two cents.

Nostalgia is an entirely other issue.

Music can bring back good memories just like scents can.

I'm referring to music that comes from a place deep inside..
I find that Jewish music lately has become very silly..
It doesn't talk of real emotions that people feel. Love, depression, longing, inspiration.. It's a big cop out to pick 3000 year old lyrics...that we really can't relate to on a deep emotional level and pop them into these cookie cutter songs.
