“I only listen to real music”
Isn’t all music “real music”?
Doesn’t everybody have their own individual opinion and preferences for a particular type of music?
There is no need to label the music you listen to as “real music” because you sound like you think of yourself as superior to another person who might like something that you say isn’t “real” and that might be really popular (on the radio/TV ect.)
Listen, if you listen to rock/rap/music with meaningful lyrics, you actually aren’t any better than someone who listens to pop/dance music/R&B, you are the same as them. The same for the other way around too. You both have an equal love for your preference of music so it is very unnecessary to be putting people down for any type of music they may enjoy by labelling it as “mainstream” or “too deep”.
Sometimes people just want to dance and have fun to a certain song, and sometimes people want to relate to the lyrics in one.
Just because something is popular doesn’t mean it is bad and “overrated”.
How about we all stop pinning one piece of music against the other, hating, and turning on each other about it, and instead just enjoy the music- you know, the reason that it is there in the first place.
