A case of the "Friday"s

Hey everyone, I know it's been a while since I updated, but there's going to be a lot of good stuff coming your way, really soon. I've just been very busy lately, so I haven't been able to update. Anyway, I have a rant today. And boy, am I going to rant.

Rebecca Black. By now, you've heard her song "Friday". If you haven't, go ahead and try to watch it. It's a traditional pop hit, yet one of the worst out there. Even autotune can't cover up her mistakes, that's how bad this song is. I don't even want to discuss this any further because of how upset I am right now. Anyway, here's my idea. Let's start moving away from the autotune. Let's go back to the good old days when musicians could sing. Artists such as Johnny Cash, Jim Morrison, Robert Plant, and The Beatles used their natural voices. Why can't modern musicians do the same? Has society really stooped down to a whole new level? Let's stop with the autotune, stop with exploiting children, and get back to the way music pop music used to be. A singer, a guitarist, a bassist, and a drummer. That's all it would take to make a hit. For example, go check out the song "MoneyGrabber" by Fitz and the Tantrums. Now that deserves to be a pop hit.

So yeah, let's just move away from autotune. Oh, and the next blog post will be an album review. Woot! And this is a great album, too! Peace everyone!
