Has “real” music been forgotten?

Growing up with parents who loved music was an amazing experience,born in 1983 I had the privilege of encountering the mighty L.P player and the countless rekords my parents owned from the classic Mo – Town era.

They would take out there L.P’s and give them a spin on Sundays.

As I grew into a teenager I gradually started liking more what radio was playing and current music but because of the foundation my parents laid with there musical likes, I had an appreciation for all types of genre and styles of music… as long as it sounded great to me or resonated with me.


Now current 2017,not many songs have positive or thought provoking messages for the masses,have artist/muscians forgotten the powerful role they have in music?

Do not get me wrong,I love alot of current music,but now and then I break away from the madness and fall in love again listening to the music my parents played when I was just a toddler …

So this one time I scrolled threw my play list and stumbled across this amazing song from the commodores titled “the nightshift”


Here is a little background of the song from Wikipedia

” Nightshift” is a 1985 hit song by the Commodores and the title track from their eleventh album of the same name. The song, written by then lead singer Walter Orange in collaboration with Dennis Lambert and Franne Golde, was a loving tribute to soul/R&B singers Jackie Wilson and Marvin Gaye, who both died in 1984. The single was released on January 31, 1985 in the United States. [1]”


Inspiration struck and I imported the song into FL Studio and chopped around and added more virtual instruments,funked it up with some solenoidbeatz magic and the end result was this.

  1. I disagree. There are plenty of great musicians currently making positive and tought-provoking music. The problem is that our music industry is run by marketers and businessmen. You have to look deeper and put in effort on your own because the music industry will continue to market crap as long as people continue to support it with their dollars. Music is all about voting with your dollars.
