The singers in that years as I think their worry was about their performance
and audience and even the words that were said they meant an experiment
in the life of either the singer or the writer of the song as well we can't forget
the voice that inspire the soul and heart .. Sometimes I think what kind of
experiment do those singers nowadays reflect through their songs ..
Maybe one thing that how much this society is ruining from every aspect ..

Not dead and definately not dying.
I totally disagree with this statement on so many levels. Yes, the mainstream radio stations and MTV/MUCHMUSIC video networks abide by the industry rule that what record companies, labels or the executives that sit in those big offices tell the broadcasters what is great music at the time, they all fall in line and spin only the select few. Ever wonder how "classic" or "mixed listening" radio stations can have a "no repeat work day" playlist, meaning, they don't play the same song more than once for about 8 to 9 hours? It's because the repetoire (sic) the programmers have to choose frome is broader, spanning the 60's to the present. Hundreds of thousands of songs to pick and choose from. BUT the Top 40 stations or genre based ones depend on music released recently, thus, if you listen to one of these stations for more than 5 hours, you're going to hear a repeat 9 times out of ten,

I'm sure you meant 2000s because the 20s is something else. Music is more accessable and diverse than it's ever been in history - your question sounds like you have a choice between two crap radio stations and that your interest in music ends there.

The 80s were great because those "hair bands" started out as small town groups who loved to play. There were a bunch of rags to riches stories made in the 80s which made every kid/teen feel like it could be them too if they tried.
Now there are too many groups/artists that were picked by the industry for appearances rather than talent and the music has become too cookie cutter because of the business behind manufacturing music. They see that the public likes a certain song/type of song and the emulate it over and over using different artist, eventually all of the music ends up sounding the same.... this was ultimately the fate of 80s music as well)
That said, there has been some great original music from great artist in the 2000s, and more are emerging.
My advise: Explore music online more, and stay away from your local radio stations unless they feature new artists/music. Many stations have a certain day of the week that they play new music. You can also check out radio stations online. many times they feature artists there that don't get played on air.
