A paper I wrote in college for Advanced Writing (as you will see by my writing, I did not learn much). Teacher told me it sucked and that I was whinning too much. Then I brought in some Britney Spears and NSYNC cds for her to listen too, then she gave me an A.

“Oops I Did It Again…And Again…And Again…And Again”
Advanced Writing ProjectBy M. G. F.2
 
Preface
 Don’t Hate the Player, Hate the Game
I wish to begin this paper with a few explanations. I want the reader to know whyI am writing this. I love music, always have and will for the rest of my life. I believemusic shapes an individual’s understanding of life and helps everyone make sense of thisfucked up world. I understand the fact that many different people enjoy all differenttypes of music, it just depends on your level of stupidity. If you like a particular form of music that is great, more power to you. But it does become a problem when certainmusic becomes too mainstream. You can’t even listen to a radio station that doesn’trepeat songs every hour throughout the whole day. Also, there is no use in changing thechannel because you will just hear the same shit.Everyone’s definition of music is different; I just want to discuss music I do notenjoy and deem worthless. I am not writing this paper to tell you what music to listen to;we have pop culture to thank for that. However, I do wish to uncover the ridiculousmonetary-driven deception called pop music. I wish to analyze pop music and take alook at the positive aspects, if any. I hope listeners of rock n roll music will enjoy this paper, while pop listeners try to figure out why we, rock fans, are all laughing at them.Enjoy.M.G.F.3
 
 Pop Clarification: Rock Music Should Not Be Labeled “Pop”
Before I discuss the many uses and abuses pop music, I will clarify my meaningof the term. Rock music should never be confused with pop music. All too often, rock critics, people at Billboard and the dumbasses at MTV use the term pop to describe anytype of music that is poplar with the masses. If I were President, the term pop would only be used to describe the evil bubble gum “slurp my puke back up from the ground and spitit back out at you for another one of your dollar bills” music.Real musicians get together, write songs and play their own instruments. Popgroups get together, have their producer make some music for them and let every other corporate cookie cutter poke, prod, shape, polish, fine tune, and tinker with every possible aspect of their lives.To make it clear, any the use of the term “pop” within this paper will be directedat these money grubbing untalented forms of music. The use of the term “pop” statedwithin this paper should not be confused with those rock n roll bands who create realmusic.
Categorizing Music: Why do we do it?
I do not believe in categorizing music, who has the right to label art. There aresome bands, which are truly categorically challenged. This idea extends into all forms of art, how can you categorize ideas that are not universal and unique to everyone? It is alla matter of interpretation and what the piece of art, whatever it may be, means to you. Ashumans, we love to categorize everything. Sorting out differences, putting them intolittle boxes and then labeling them, somehow makes us feel better. I think art, especiallyin musical form should not be so carefully and unjustly categorized.4
