Light Rock

I was constantly a Blur fan. During the full Britpop junk where you had been anticipated to decide a side, I’d be standing by Blur not since I’m a gentle middle class southern art school ponce, not because I can not manage it when THE INDIVIDUALS have a FOLKS’s GROUP, and not because I have anything against Oasis. No, I enjoyed Blur because they were not a bit illiterate, a bit sharp, a bit smart (and music hall) thoughts, and they did not stand still. In terms (and are) more, Blur were much more from their first record to their last.

None of which is news to anyone and there is actually no point in trying to resurrect the Britpop Wars. In fact I just mention it because a theory been percolating for several years at the rear of my head now, which looks like an excellent chance to get it to the evaluation. And it is rather a theory that is large, so you’ll need to endure with me while I work through the sense. Why not take notes? Go crazy!

So, anyhow, back. It concerns the differences between them both, and pop music and rock music. Folks are constantly arguing over what makes up rock and pop, and frequently they will go for whether guitars are affected, or whether the tune has been composed by the individuals performing the tune, or whether it functions in the live area. However, these are differentiations that are rather pointless.

What exactly is it which divides the two areas? Well, just like lots of matters in life, it is how you decide to use them and about standards.

So a pop song should sound nothing from 1987 or 1997, whereas music is commonly replicated by a rock tune in 2007 from days gone by. Issues are raised by this strategy for either camp. One being that it is not possible to consistently seem without sounding a bit rubbish from time to time contemporary, and another being that it is difficult to produce a name on your own when you are basically mimicking a sound that has been around (and constantly rehashed) for ages.

Oh, and occasionally it is the tunes which are not credibly of the time which last just because that is part of why folks enjoy them so much.

That said, some matters which looked like a great idea at the time just were not. And the Smiths were excellent, for all their retro-touches. So do not presume a triumph on either side.

Quite simply, pop music is about individual tunes, rock music is about records. Rock bands plan to reach a sound that is consistent, and they tailor their songwriting. Rock may go slow or swift but they tend not to deviate, unless in the shape of wild bside or a hidden track. A rock band must wait for a fresh record to achieve this, if it wants to alter its trademark sound. There is less danger, but more consistency.

Pop acts, on the other hand, plan to alter their sound on a regular basis. BUT the dangers are enormous. Master pop songs are difficult to get, more difficult to order, and a pop act’s records are constantly littered with experiments which did not pay off.

Or, to put it just, on a tune-by-song basis, pop acts have standards that are higher but they don’t satisfy with them more frequently.

Rock stars, on the other hand, have to behave like a combination between an associate of European royalty, the mafia and an unfamiliar visitor.

Pop stars adore to meet with all their supporters and they smile constantly, which will be something because only halfwits are that cheery 24/7 we distrust. Rock stars may even snub the people that purchase their records, and are generally grumpy, because these are higher beings, whose ability gives them the privilege to behave this way and we are sort of fine with that.

This comes out in the music also, for the reason that rockers must deliver their tunes like they mean every word, whereas it is not unacceptable to be faking a bit.

(What we despise most of all, obviously, are those people that behave like they are rock stars when all of us understand they are pop stars. That does not play nicely AT. ALL.)
