Taiwanese Pop Music
1. I think the reason why there are so
many idol singers showing up is because people
all like beautiful, attractive,
and "cool" images and most idol singers possess those
characters. They are imitated by
most teenagers. Besides, the majority of album
consumers are teenagers and many
teenagers emphasize more on singers'
appearances than their singing skills.
Any way, "first impression counts". People are
always affected a lot by the first
impression of a singer.
2. I think that most music litseners
in Taiwan prefer the western music style. That's
why since the very first time Western
music instilled Taiwan Island, most music
composers in Taiwan prefer to imitate
the wertern music style to compose new
Mandarin, or even Taiwanese songs.
And most consumers will be attracted by this kind of music.
3. Music with pure Taiwan's original
style is gradually disappearing and in the future,
there will be only western style
Taiwan's music. Since most people prefer to litsen to
the western style music and with
the rise of people's levels of knowledge, people may
give up listening Chinese music
and choose to listen to pure Western music instead.
4. We should learn the strong points
of foreign music and get rid of the weaknesses,
then design or create our own music.
Or we can mix up local music and foreign music
in a harmonious way. For example,
use Western instruments to play Chinese or
Taiwanese songs or use Chinese instruments
to play Western music.
5. I think many non-mainstream singers
like ³¯¬À©g or ª÷ªù¤ý,
political, social, physical, or
mental phenomena happen in our daily life and they even
present some personal experiences
that we will also encounter in our daily lives. So
we will feel intimate to listen
to their songs.
6. It may be harmful for Taiwanese
pop music to adapt too much western style
because as I mentioned before the
pure Taiwanese style music will gradually
disappear in the future and people
will forget what is Taiwanese style music.
7. As I mentioned before, we can
mix up the local music style and foreign music style
together. We can absorb the advantages
of western music and get rid of the
weaknesses of our own original music
to compose our own music.
