    Whilst doing some research as I like to keep my repertoire refreshed for the sake of both the listener and myself I regularly use Youtube as a reference point to refresh my memory as to how some of the golden classic songs go.
    Today whilst looking at a Tony Bennett page for 'If I Ruled The World' I came across the following comment which I've edited for obvious reasons but it really is an honest reflection from a youngster about today's music culture:
    Clearly an example of the 'dumbing down' that's prevalent in today's society ppl. Here's the link to the song:
    YouTube - Tony Bennett / If I Ruled the World
    I was wondering, has anyone else seen any suitably interesting comments during their surfing expeditions on the net?

    That is an interesting link. I have to say I find it hard to read this new form of text language... and I must admit it annoys me as well. That said I guess I have to accept it as part of our culture.
    He has a point though!
    I spent 20 years in the music industry and whereas I once enjoyed listening to new styles of music, cutting edge stuff. I can't help getting annoyed when hearing a terrible song with 4 lyrics slapped on a repetitive background very similar, but not quite identical to every other record in the charts.
    Mind you... not all modern music is terrible. When a good song comes along it shines light a lighthouse... Talent oozes from every cord and it's nice and refreshing to her an artist sing with passion and professionalism.... it does still happen :)
    I'm hooked on a song by Train it's called "Hey soul sister" anyone else like this?
