    Well I reckon that modern chart music is cack. What does everyone else think?
    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Yes I get this too, I just laugh at them, I do actually find it really funny that people can be so tragic.

    And having wandered about a few 'developing' countries I actually think that referring to 'poverty' in the UK is actually a bit of an insult to the people living in those places. By global standards no-one in the UK is 'poor' or 'in poverty'. Added to that there seems to be a whole industry of middle-class professionals making a tidy living off the back of the so-called UK poverty.

    Anyway, enough of my ranting.

    Music isn't standalone these days, but rather is just a part of the 'entertainment' industry, which includes films, TV. sport, computer games, online gambling, and I'm sure there are others. Perhaps there isn't the same level of passion in it that there was 30 or so years ago.

    I've not played a computer game since Uni but there seems to be as much passion for computer games amongst today's generation as mine had for a decent hifi and records.

    It's not that there is no passion, it's that the passion is for other competing uses of leisure time.

    My iPhone 5 is a cast off from a family member and is more than good enough for me. I'm far too lazy to spend time learning all of its features, so no point upgrading. My sim-only contract is 13 a month (EE) and gives all the whatever that I need.
