Its Fun Friday everyone!
Today we are looking at great song writers! What does that mean? I am not talking about your Katy Perry's or your Jonas Brothers. While they are very popular and are loved by millions, that is what makes them pop artists. A great song writer is an artist who is able to write music and perform it and portray a meaningful message while still captivating an audience. This is much harder to do in today's world! Pop music has become popular and repetitive because our world is fast paced and ever changing so we always want what is new and next and we want to move on to the next song. Why do you think that pop songs all follow the same structure and are all about 3 minutes long? On the other hand, you get a great song like Bohemian Rhapsody that is over 8 minutes long and it still captivates audiences world wide.
Today, I hope to show you some artists who have and are writing great songs that you might want to get into!
Listen to the videos at your leisure and post your thoughts on the discussion board.
