Yes, songs like "It's My Party" But I wasn't referring to style or theme of the songs. There are many talented singers but somehow they forgot how to sing, the popular TV contest shows have something to do with it, I think. I remember the time when artists entertained their audience with their songs and of course a beautiful voice will help to enhance it. But now the song itself has become an afterthought - what really matters is how perfect it sounds. It's not longer a performance, it's an achievement of Olympic proportions. Instead of having the song "speak" for itself, every note must now be emotionally manipulated, to emphasize how terribly, terribly poignant the song is. The only thing that's missing is sad frown smileys, just in case we still don't get. That kind of music is not fun, it's exhausting. And just like Dynasty, it should never have become a teenybopper show, although I'm sure it still has a huge gay fanbase. And they will vote for the hunks and the faghag divas. I just want some pretty songs!
