During my younger years, singers/band like Depeche Mode, Tear for Fears, Spandau Ballet, Madonna, A-Ha, Rick Ashley, Menudo and Duran-Duran just to name a few ruled the 80’s music scene. The music trend that time was New Wave with dances that mostly uses hand while dancing. It was such a fun era where music are heart-warming, relevant, have good message.
80’s music still ruled and up to these days, there are still songs that are being played on the radio and singers who are reviving the songs giving their own rendition and touch to it.
Though every one has its own taste in music, I have never been inclined to pure rock or metal songs and even rap. I simply could not tolerate the sound and the noise in them though there are some mellow rock songs that are still pleasing to the ears and made it through all the charts.
These days, my niece is into KPOP music that is popularized by Korean singers. I’m not so sure why they are into it but I guess those Koreans have a certain charisma because the way they sing and project on stage can make all the girls go ga-ga on them. Not to mention their fashion sense. Some young ones are trying to have a Korean haircut/style and Korean way of dressing. The way they sing coupled with focusrite scarlett 18i6 equipments and effects, good looks and fashion style can always melts every girl's heart.
Oh well, I also remember going ga-ga over those Puerto Rican members of MENUDO where Ricky Martin, Robby Darosa etc. are part of it.
I wonder what songs or music trend will the next generation of teens will have after 5 or 10 years. All I know is that every generation has its own charm and trend that only those that are “born” within can only know the meaning.
