Why there won’t likely be “another Beatles”

An excellent blog that I follow is “The Badger Hut.” Today a poster named Jack shared a brilliant insight that’s worth consideration. To wit:

The Beatles were immensely talented. Later, the (music) industry would realize that talent was an optional component, and that new stars could be created more cheaply with studio production techniques and that the fame was all that was truly important to sell records to young women.

The low standard of musical achievement could indicate that much of modern pop music is actually designed to be more of an alpha male burlesque show for women than any sort of actual musical “performance.”

    Thanks for the pingback. Isn’t it wild how low-talent modern pop artists are. And the song themes are so cliched.

    Kelly Clarkson has gotten a lot of mileage out of getting burned by a man.
