Top Ten Music Genres with the Most HeartBritgirl
The Top Ten
Agreed completely! Once I read about it. Blues musicians were very sad, depressed about their lives. That's why they created the sad songs, emotional songs. Those old blues guitar licks are prime example of it. - zxm
I believe it was Eric Clapton who said: "Some people find the Blues depressing. I find the opposite. It rescued me..."
I totally get what he means by that. Blues has so much heart, soul and truth. These artists wore their heart on their sleeves and sang about their lives and experiences with so much passion and honesty The Blues doesn't have any old nonsensical lyrics to music like you find with some genres - Blues lyrics have real feeling and meaning; it's an emotional projection of their heart and soul to yours. So please tell me, in what way is that "depressing"? - Britgirl
Blues is about real peoples' real lives, issues, struggles, real emotions. It's passionate, soulful, extremely emotive and does indeed have a whole lot of heart. And I've taken it into mine. - Britgirl
"Agreed completely. Once I read about it. Blues musicians were very sad, depressed about their lives." This is what happens with armchair expertise. Some people "read about it." Some people have actually lived it. While some noted blues musicians were chronically depressed, most are not. Blues is the OUTLET for such emotions. Beyond that, not all blues is depressing, regardless of anyone's fundamental misunderstanding of the genre. Be-bop, boogie, boogie-woogie, rock 'n' roll (not to be confused with "rock," except sometimes) are all blues, and are generally quite energizing and uplifting. Try living an experience before presuming to inform others about it.
I vote for rock because it has a lot of heart and it can get your heart pumping and feeling emotions! - Curti2594
Sure. If your only emotions are hate, anger and angst.
Which I have grown extremely fond of. - Britgirl
