I’ve never thought about the compression of pop music, but now that I have noticed it it’s weird. The music is always loud at almost any volume, the beat of the song drowns out the lyrics and purpose of the song. For me music has always been about its lyrical quality and purpose behind the words being spoken. The rhythm is important but good rhythm without lyrical quality leads to mundane and repetitive songs like Havana. This class might ruin my sense of music or enhance It depending on perspective but we will see. I’m definitely enjoying this class so far and I look forward to the following classes.
