Advantages: Gives us feelings, brings back memories etc
Disadvantages: Can be a pain to people who dont enjoy music, and can have a negative impact sometimes
Music for some people is just something to get them through the work day, for others its a career or something more than that. For me its a bit of both. I started doing small weddings and parties on and off many years ago and it was just a bit of easy cash, i didnt do it for fun back when i started, a friend of mine needed an emergency DJ for an hour and a half, just to bring some of my CD's and play them, i did it and i got into it like that. He paid me £15 and i was more than pleased to do it for that.
I work in an office where we have the radio on all day and occasionally we sing along, makes jokes and generally enjoy listening to it, so for me its a bit of both. I have always loved music, of most genres. I dont like death metal with the screaming and i dont like gangsta rap, but for those that do thats their sort of music, they enjoy it and to them its the same as me enjoying some classic 80's tracks, it makes me happy and it must make them happy, otherwise why would they listen to it?
Supporting artists is a good thing but excessive pay to people who are already multi millionaires is something i dont agree with. Its a talent but much like football players wages, for me personally i think its excessive. Artsits should be payed well, but not millions upon millions. Emerging artists need the cash most of all to build their fanbase, get their foot in the door and experience the music scene but does madona really need another £2m?
Music is in daily life, everywhere you go whatever you do music is there. TV, adverts, youtube, radio, people singing, your own personal collection and the list goes on. Its a huge part of our lives and its only getting bigger, people are buying more and more music, even if the formats have changed.
Music has a huge impact on society and cant be ignored. It inspires people, changes people, makes people cry, makes people dance and simply by instruments and voices being used in a certain way. Pop music has always been about rebellion, right from the early 20th century but although music is changing, for better or worse, that idea is still there, and people still change the course of music over the years to come.
Thats just my opinion but some may disagree, some may never listen to music all day long, its hard not to but possible, but think of the happiness music you enjoy brings you? Goosebumps on your wedding song, a feel good high when you hear club tracks that make you want to go out and have a great evening, and relaxing tracks that calm you in the bath at night.
Music also has a negative impact on vulnerable children for example, rap videos about drugs, beating people up etc are just not needed, so there is a downside to music too but overall i feel it has a huge positive impact on everyone.
Summary: Music has an impact on us all, for better or worse
