Strike it Up: Black Box
Yesterday I promoted the above video, and well, I just couldn't stop playing it.
I cast my mind back to what feels like just a few years ago and reminded myself that in those days Dance and related categories of music was possible:
- Without Cussing and Swearing
- Without misogynist lyrics
- Without a message of hate
But moving forward to today:
Luckily for me I think I found the truncated version of the video. Phew!
I think most music of this genre tries hard to incorporate what I can only describe as the above 3 point un-holy trilogy of stupidity, thankfully it has not yet been extended to include the killer 4th category (Religious crackpottery) but maybe that is coming too.
So to recap, what happened to the preponderance of cheerful, musical, clean and danceable music that I was raised on?
DJ Jazzy Jeff& Fresh Prince:Summertime
NO (contains bad lyrics, themes, just about everything ..)
Lil John: Get Low
