Studying music brings me to realize that there is not much of a difference to me because analyzing music does not have much affect on the music I listen to. I do recognize however that there is more that meets the eye with the background in many artist’s music. Sometimes people make music about their circumstance whether it is about love, adversity, or the world. Sometimes when I’m listening to music I do think about the things going on in society that have influenced the song but most of the time, songs do not have much significant meaning. When they do it makes you respect an artist more now a days with the creativeness in music declining as what sells isn’t always meaningful. I hope that in the future those who take the time to make music for themselves and others second, be recognized as such.
