Another Rant and Rave.
Heard about the Grammy awards. I am not going to mention the "artist" who did the song. He was hailed a genius. The song talks about how he was going to kill his boss today.
I am 52 years old. I can look back in certain times of my life and remember the music that was playing at that time. My first job...."A horse with no name", Meeting my husband...... "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", My children's childhood, "We don't Need No education, We don't need no thought control".
Tragic times in my life, I was abducted and raped when I was 18..... when I hear "Angie" I still want to crawl under the table and hide my head.
Music is important and it does influence you weather you want to believe it or not. Every period of my life I have a song to tag it with. That is why I think this type of music is harmful. Not funny, not genius, not good......dangerous. When I have music stuck in my head I don't want it to be I want to kill my Boss.
I am strong enough to ignore that, but some aren't. Because of that you are responsible for what you write, what you put to some catchy lyrics. You are responsible for any damage that is done. Because seriously..... don't you agree....What song were you listening too the time your husband asked you to marry him. What were you listening too when your parents died. What were you listening to on 9-11? You can't tell me it doesn't affect you.
Once again these are my opinions, my believes I have arrived at during my short 52 years of life. I don't think we should be talking censoring, we should be talking moral responsibility.
