Not to Offend Anyone in Particular
I was just watching one of the popular morning shows and one segment featured a very pretty woman with a pleasant voice singing a song which was obviously of her own invention. There was something in this song I just have to mention. Recently I have noticed a lot of vocal music clearly composed by the singer which has no discernible tune whatsoever and rambling whiny lyrics. The singers always seem very proud of these works and I wonder if it's the natural result of the reckless boosting of children's self-esteem. At some point someone needed to say "try again", or "good try, see if you can do it better". It's true: I have turned into a curmudgeon.
