The State of Music

Let's talk a bit about music. This video has been floating around the internet for a while and you've probably seen it before. Basically, a guy with a guitar is lamenting about the overuse of that iconic bit of music from Pachelbel popping up in all sorts of pop music.





It's one of those things that really makes you go hmm. Well, now there's this act by the Axis of Awesome about four chord songs.



Seriously! What does this say about the state of music? It's all so homogenized that we'll just keep listening to the same recycled bits over and over and over? I like a lot of the songs thrown in there too so I'm conflicted. If I'm horrified about what that says about music, then what does it say about my tastes in music personally? Not that I'm a music snob or anything. I'll happily listen to bubbly pop music over some of the other stuff on offer, but still.
