They're to blame!...
« on: January 19, 2008, 02:28:18 AM »
...MYMP!

I know covers and remakes have long been born in the local music scene..side A and other bands..they make great covers and promote em as a carrier single. well at least, 10% or less of the time.  They launched onto the scene with original songs like hold on...etc.

MYMP, is the most popular, biggest selling duo/band to promote other artists songs...mostly from foreign acts.

a lot have followed their footsteps..Bamboo, Spongecola, Martin Nievera, Christian Bautista....

whatever happened to Pinoy creativity? and friggin' hard work??

the only reason "it sells" is coz its the only thing rammed down people's throats so much that people have no choice but to like 'em... not just covers but backwards pop music in general.

if all the labels took risks and tried to elevate the minds of the masses, we could end up like japan or someday, the US, where diversity and open-mindedness cultivated markets for all kinds of art and music.

but no, the labels can't risk that. its still a business and they have families to feed. reality check for the idealistic.

dati anti din ako sa mga nagco-cover na yan. pero narealize ko na... kung magiging katulad din nila tayo. edi mas lalong mababaon sa paghihirap ang mga bandang may original songs. isipin mo, kung lahat ng banda dito sa pilipinas, puro cover lang yung nire-record.. tapos banda lang namin yung gumagawa ng original songs, tapos machupets pa.. edi sisikat kagad kami. hahaha! kidding aside

ok lang naman e.. kaso sana, yung kanta na gagawin nila e galangin nila, hindi yung mas lalo pang pumapangit (dipende rin naman to sa nakikinig). at isa pa, wala ka namang magagawa kung hindi talaga sila marunong gumawa ng sariling kanta, pero maganda boses at magaling magperform diba? at kung hindi rin sa kanila, hindi ko malalaman yung mga magagandang kanta na pinanggalingan nila kasi hindi na rin naman yun pinapatugtog sa radyo. example, 10 years from now halos bihira mo na maririnig ang mga kanta ng eraserheads sa radyo. tapos may nagrevive ng toyang, nagandahan ako.. sinearch ko yung toyang tapos nalaman ko na eraserheads pala yun.. paano ko malalaman na meron palang bandang eraserheads kung hindi ko man lang sila narinig? parang yung kay mishka adams, kung di ko pa maririnig yung album nya.. di ko pa matutuklasang merong palang  billie holiday :D gets ba? :lol:

i like MYMP... "come on and get me get me get me, baby im yours cmon and get meeee!"

*lol* but seriously ... if i was given front row tickets to their show, i would watch and then talk to juris and chin afterwards.

-*-

if you really hate pop that much you wouldnt watch TV, read pulp or listen to the radio... those who do that, and then complain how much they hate pop are either hypocrites or just ppl who need to get out the house and play gigs.

Ika nga ni Ely

"Well I knew I couldn't take all that dog food that they make I'd just as sooner put myself on a stake and burn...I saw it coming around...I saw it coming around yehehehehe..."

If we don't like it, then don't buy it. As my friend in the recording industry confided in me "wala kang kikitain ni singkong duling sa CD's". It goes for them, as it goes for us.

So I guess the solution for our happiness is just to ignore what we don't like and do what we do like. If it means going Indie Underground for the rest of our musical careers...then SO BE IT :D

Peace :D

Siguro di pa nila iniisip yan, baka di pa naman kasi sila aalis.  :-)

Hmmm...Ewan....Maiintindihan ko rin siguro kapag ganap na akong musikero.  :-)

haha if you really want to change the economic landscape of the local music industry, buy 1,000,000 copies of every local album that you like and create a demand for the artists that you think should be tha shizz. maybe that'll make them record labels keep up with your vision
