Descrizione



It has been said that "Religion is the opiate of the masses." Is it so far-fetched that the same can be said of music? Musicians, their craft, and in turn, the industry, have great sway over the human psyche and therefore, humanity. We obsess over the mundane in the lives of strangers, the fanatical driven to tears and even convulsions when in the presence of these people, mere human beings. Any day of the week, that sounds like worship to me, and especially on Sunday, like idolatry.

My perception of the industry has evolved so much recently that I don't listen to it quite as blindly as I used to. I've never been the type of person to listen to music without taking in the words as much as the construction of the song (the music), but these days, I find it impossible not to watch the music videos and listen to the lyrics without acknowledging the resonance of certain types of symbols and themes. I know once you go looking for something, it's bound to appear everywhere. It's simply how the mind works. But as these symbols and themes recur very frequently, and certainly have powerful effects on the mind, I'd be a fool to ignore them.

It's not nearly enough to simply notice these things, however. What does it all mean? It's this question that drives my obsession with music. By no means do I idolize these people. They're as flawed as any of us. Yet, regardless of how talented I think they are, they've been chosen to deliver a message. That message may be different for everyone, and may differ from artist to artist, but this much is clear: there is an agenda behind the music. So remember, keep your ears open, because when cast into the abyss of blindness, your ears are the last defense you have.
