The Moves // v. 2 - “The Art of Song vs. The Co-Write”
Today’s standards of record making in the music industry have spurred about from numerous reasons. We live in a time where the posterboy/postergirl rule the world of mainstream, where the listener may or may not have a care in the world where the songs/ideas originated from. I’ve come across those die hard, elitist music lovers who live to fight against dishonesty in music. I’ve also come across those wall street marketers who have not a clue of the many sub-cultures of Music. I’m intrigued.
I know this matter varies depending on the type of genre/song we’re speaking of… But humor me:
A. How would it make you feel if that very personal, tear-jerking, genuine song that your favorite artist sings was written by someone else.
B. Is the music that is co-written any less passionate and legitimate than the music that is completely DIY?
