Music in this generation is different than it is for our parents. Music has changed from not only the artist and what they put in there songs but the meaning behind the songs. I listen to a large variety of music from 80’s/90’s RNB to underground rappers to mainstream country.
” Music, once admitted to the soul becomes a sort of spirit, and never dies.”~Edward Bulwer-Lytton
I know personally music in this generation is used for an escape from all what we as a generation are going through. Artist such as Rod Wave who is a rap artist who makes songs about pain, heartbreak, having trust issues, finding love, etc. Rod Wave has been a major artist who has not only been able to get me out of hard dark places but also has made me feel like I’m not the only one who fells like this.
Music is a new form for this generation to express ourselves. Music has become the main source of therapy for the generation as a whole. It’s difficult for kids these days to sit and talk to their parents about how they are feeling when parents dismiss their feelings. Many times before we have heard the line of “Oh, you are to young to be depressed”. It is already hard enough to go through depression but when you try to express yourself to your parents and they brush it hurts. But when you find a song or even an artist who speaks about your pain that you are experiencing it gives you a peace of mind. Even though you are still going through that hard and difficult time, you now don’t feel crazy and lonely while you go through it.
Now put your favorite song on, blast it and sing it loud. Enjoy the music and escape this crazy place called age world.
