Teen Music

19 Dec

Each generation has its own popular singers who warble, in an adenoidal whine, about the angst of being young. This is as inevitable as the pain of childbirth or the decay of the grave.

No generation has much patience with the whine of any other generation. This is as it should be.

No generation pays the slightest attention to the criticism of its whines by any other generation. This is also as it should be.

No, I am not going to go into detail about which particular whine of which generation it was that set me off. It doesn’t matter.

    You sure you can’t tell me? I really wanna know.

    Besides the angst, I’ve noticed over the last 15 years that pop singers are increasingly nasal. This seems to support Weston A. Price’s theory/evidence that the modern diet causes narrowing of the jaw and facial structure (fascinating research). And it seems more and more opera singers require microphones, perhaps owing to the same problem.

    Okay, that’s probably unrelated to your pithy, right-on post. But the nasality (and the fact that many kids copy it) really annoys me!
