Angry I'm MAD at the artists I grew up listening to!

Boy...that 'rap' thread sure got me going!

Now I've got a bone to pick with all the 'Classic Rock' artists I grew up with!

The Who
The Beatles
Hendrix
Bob Seger
The Doors
and there's LOTS more!!!

What do they ALL have in common? Be it the original songs, or a version 'covered' by someone else...they've all SOLD THEIR SONGS TO COMMERCIALS!

Seems like every time a commercial break graces my TV, I hear a classic tune selling something!

Things SURE have changed since the 60's and 70's...when 'artistic integrity' actually meant something!

The only one I have ANY respect for is John Mellencamp...who SWEARS he will never sell his songs for commercial purposes!

But Hendrix! Probably spinning in his grave!

C'mon boomers...waddya think?

Default << um....what was the point of that >>

It's called a 'thread'!

I'm soliciting opinions from baby boomers on the subject of selling music for commercials! Isn't that what this site is for? It certainly has more content than SOME of the posts I've seen around here...like "Here's a picture of my room"! Pah-lease! I thought that thread was a bit silly...but you didn't see me going in there and making comments like yours!

If you have no opinions on the subject...then why bother answering this 'thread'?

Isn't this the 'chit chat' section? Or because I'm not a 'giddy school-girl', I can't solicit opinions on things?

<< I'm MAD at the artists I grew up listening to! >>

NOW I'm mad at you too!

Well this point was really kinda pointless. They get paid for doing commercials. Thats all they really care about probably. Besides, is being on a commercial really that degrading?

Well, it would have been the artists' choice to sell their songs to be used for commercials and to probably allow other artists to sing their songs. One song by Smash Mouth "Believer" is a good remake of the song by the Monkees. Although, I think the song "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones is better than the "Satisfaction" song done by Britney Spears. I don't mind the "Satisfaction" song sung by Justine Bateman for the Satisfaction film, though. Another song that was resung was "I Wanna Love You Forever" that was originally sung by Celine Dion and resung by Jessica Simpson. I think Celine did a better job singing that song than Jessica did.

Default That's NOT the point!

And I guess a lot of you 'yougsters' wouldn't understand about 'art' and using that 'art' to make as MUCH money off it as you can!

By selling songs to commercials (IMO) cheapens the art of songwriting to the point of mediocrity!

Integrity meant something years ago. But I guess if you can write a hit song, and 2 weeks later it's selling hot dogs...you could care less!

But the point of my anger is the fact that this thread was treated like a moronic statement from someone who doesnt have a million posts, that can't voice an opinion on your 'precious' board!

And my opinion of that 'other thread' only surfaced to make a 'point'! I did't mean to offend anyone by THAT statement...opinions are like, well you know!

Well since your so much older and know everything, you must know that MOST NOT ALL people out there are looking to make money. I mean how many times have you heard "I wanna be rich and famouse!" MAYBE they are HONEST people WHO really DO care about the ARTISTIC side of WRITING their own music, but how do YOU know!? HAVE YOU EVER ****ING MET THEM!? Have you ever asked them why they did it??? No, so why worry about it. If the musics good, listen.

Default OK...

...I'll just start answering threads with "um....what was the point of that", and see how many friends I make!

Yeah...I HAVE ****ing met some of them! And if you're shallow enough to make a great song, only to let some corporation have it to sell things, I feel sorry for you!! That's NOT art...it's called 'selling out' to make a buck! You might as well be writing jingles for Burger King! Now THAT'S art!
