Formulas are supposed to be good

Not the good kind. I’m not really running on full speed. I’m talking about the “out” kind.

I’m a bit burnt out on music. Nothing excites me. I’m not going to complain about Top 40 radio, Katy Perry, Taio Cruz, Justin Bieber, the Music Industry, Apple or anything people that people might say is wrong with music in today’s iPod world.

I’m just not excited about music. What’s it say about our world when musicians have to be outrageous to get noticed? Formulas aren’t supposed to be a bad thing. Like in math, I’m supposed to know that when I plug X into a formula the correct answer is supposed to come out on the other side. Something that’s supposed to solve my problem. Not something bad or evil.

So what’s wrong with pop music? Are too many people using the same formula, or are they just using it the wrong way?

Too much of a good thing.
