Worth Sharing: "Before the Music Dies"

This week in Media & Society we wrapped up our discussion of the music and radio industries. As part of the class's online forum, one of the students found this video related to "Before the Music Dies," a documentary on the music industry.

The video highlights the way those in the industry can take an idea, combine some sound mixing and attractive pictures and market the "next big thing." Sadly, I fear, it's not that far from reality.

Thanks, Hilary, for finding this video.

Take heart, this sort of thing has been going on for a long time. My impression is that synthetic talents don't last. Check out this article about Milli Vanilli, grammy winner fakes.

P.s. Where is that 17 year old girl's dad? I would be kicking some ass if creeps exploited one of my daughters that way!
