I'm convinced...CONVINCED...that video was in fact the beginning of the end for popular music. Suddenly the focus shifted from talent to looks, and we've not been the same since.
It's also not helped that corporate radio on a national level has homogenized music to a finite number of "formats", where only a dozen or so artists get airplay on any given day - and even then, some songs more than once an hour. Little room for good, new artists to make a dent.
There IS music I like today, but it is exceptionally rare to find a talented artist I like - and even more rare to hear them on radio or see them on TV. Music has become an over-glorified beauty pageant. And I, for one, am pretty pissed off about it. This isn't about being some old codger who thinks all modern music sucks. This is about being a young person who knows all modern music sucks.
