The other day we had a submission from one of our followers, Sean Johnston on his experience of music elitism. Musical Elitism is prevalent in today’s society and in a society where music is one of the only pure forms of release for a person stories like Sean’s show it is important to respect all musical choices even if it isn’t one you would make yourself.
My first ever Cd I owned was Savage Garden. I was clearly destined for greatness. I played it on my nifty second hand walkman my brother handed down to me. Little did I know that the great feeling I got from my beats and tunes would later be met by an overpowering hatred an alienation from my peers… Just because my music wasn’t the preferred taste of the majority I wasn’t allowed to ride shotgun in my “mates car”… I felt inadequate as a person. One day I realised, all music is beautiful. Music is a concoction of sounds, its a primitive thing to enjoy as it is but if one person likes that concoction of sounds well then it is music, beautiful music.
