Why music is inane and no one listens to it
 
I heard a song at the gym today with the lyrics, 'all we ever hear form you is blah blah blah. All we ever do is go ja ja ja. And we don't even care about what they say coz it's ja ja ja ja blah blah blah blah. Then repeat.


The song has no intro; it just fades in. The instruments and lyrics are just a loop on repeat; and it has no coda. And the video is just the animated lyrics flashing on the screen (which is how I know 'yah' is spelled 'ja').


I'm assuming it is played at the gym because it is popular - why would they play songs which everyone hates, right?



Do people actually like it? And if so, how is that possible?

Welcome to today's pop music industry.
Simple music for simple minded people.

I remember a song back in the '80s called "Anna". The lyrics were:

"Anna, Oh Anna." Repeat, repeat, repeat...

It was no Dark Side of the Moon.

Sounds like it's this song: Blah Blah Blah - Armin van Buuren

This is the first time I've heard it & I actually quite like it. Sometime's all a song needs is a simple lyric or two, plus it's got a good beat. I don't see anything inane about it.

It sounds like a song for oppressed youth. I imagine it might offer some release/relief for some. Might influence others to become disobedient as well though, maybe.

I agree.....much of todays music doesn't even qualify as music.....its just rhythmic noise

Dumbed down rhythmic noise for the dumbed down kids of today.

It is not even comparable to the Dark Side of The Moon album or any song thereon!

I did write out the entire lyrics, so no doubt.

To me it is so obviously inane that I can't even imagine people appreciating it as music. I doubt anyone does. People might 'like' it in the way they 'like' vacuous face-book posts, I guess.

I think it tries to be a protest song, but it has no emotional truth, and the film clip only depicts epic rave parties during the 'instrumental break' (and I am using that term extremely loosely).


There are meaningful social/protest song, not music I 'like', but songs I can appreciate as having value heartfelt/honesty even if it is only in lyrics set to a silly backing track. For example, Black Eyed Peas "Ring the Alarm" is a strong protest song which has meaningful lyric, the song is artistically composed with transitional changes and musical variation and includes musical instruments which are played. It has 'brilliance'. I can still appreciate the aesthetic expression and I don't need to 'like' it to appreciate its 'goodness'.
