Humanity knew music long time ago . People of ancient civilizations like Greece , Egypt and others knew music and played it in many occasions as we can find on the Egyptian temples paintings of musical instruments. But in the twenty and twenty-first century music developed greatly just like everything else in those last few centuries . Today you find in your equalizer many kinds of music " Rock , Rap , Hip Hop , Metal , House , Trance , Chill out , Pop , Jazz , opera , classic and others " . you can also find on Youtube what you can consider a rating or a level of each kind's popularity . I tried to study the characteristics of each kind of music in a psychological way and also study or acknowledge the taste or character of different fans of each kind .
If we want to make a logical rating of each kind's popularity according to youtube and download websites , this can be a not bad rating :
1- Pop " Just check out Justin Bieber and lady gaga videos "
2- hip Hop - Rap " Make a visit to Eminem's videos "
8- classical music and that kind of opera and Beethoven symphonies
1-Pop is in the first place because it's simple , trivial , has no specific or limited style ,
doesn't need mental effort to understand the message or meaning of the song
and finally most of pop songs are about beauty of love or the suffering from it .
2- Do you have a deep shit to share ? .. yeah , come on let me hear your rap story !
3- I'm Emo .. Rock is my medicine !
4- House music .. What a beautiful life !
5- That computerized music with it's electrice waves entering your body specially when you are high , sure I'm talking about Trance Music !
6- Metal , Oh let's know how much you hate your fuckin life !
7- Jazz , I was born in the wrong time , oh how much I wish I was born in the sixties !
8- Opera , Classical Symphonies ? There is no doubt you are a different mentality and culture !
Finally , Music has no language but it reflects the culture of each country and taste and maybe character of each person listining to it . Personally I love anything that makes me feel better or any type makes me smile . Respect to anyone disagree with me
