    Mainstream music is usually dumbed down for a popular, commercial audience. Jewel's hits are all arpeggio. It's an articulated punk 3 chord banger, but back together sounds like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFkEjEZGN18

    Kenny Cheseny is fun to hear, boring to play because the vocals just play a melody over running chords. The sheet music looks like a nursery rhyme. C throughout the bar with say, a X-Y-Z melody. Currently, the likes of Katy Perry and Meily are even simpler. Look up Post Modern Jukebox. They rebuild the most popular songs to actually use notes and rhythm like real music.

    Real music looks like a math equation because it is. A fully solved algebra problem. Moonlight sonata https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/tab/ludwig_van_be... is interesting because there are layers. The same general pattern moves through the movements but how it pushes and pulls changes as well as the details of the statements.

    Just screaming "penis!" Over and over again is not a good joke. But that's current popular music. A good dirty joke and music builds the tension and then lets it release at the right time. But you have to be paying attention, which is the problem.

    REAL music is NOT taylor swift. Or demi lovato. Or kanye. Or lady kaka. Or justin beiber. REAL music is only heard on the obscure low power college stations in your area. So what is REAL music. Here are some names to look up on YouTube where ypu can listen for free.

    Aphex twin. Squarpusher. Pan sonic. Joy division. Echo & the bunnymen. Neds atomic dustbin. Palvo. Bjork. Kitchens of distinction. Big head todd & the monsters. Niko case. Tori amos. New young pony club. Slowdive. Meatbeat manifesto. THE ORB. King's X. Dokken. Winger. Metallica. KMFDN. Queensryche. Man or...astroman. Radiana. The raincoats. October project. Dead can dance.

    Music that is not auto-tuned, with an authentic voice that you will not confuse with another music artist. That's my definition.

    Real music contains the soul of the writer, expresses ideas and feelings, and is performed by talented musicians. Mainstream music is designed by the studios to make money by appealing to the masses.
