When it comes to QUALITY in music is NPR up for the CHALLENGE?
NPR, it's time for a musical showdown. I challenge NPR music writers, and both NPR music blogs: All Songs Considered, and Monitor Mix, to a musical challenge.(Or any music media source for that matter). You present your best 100-200 new songs, versus my BIG LIST, first best of world music from the net, list .
For every entry you choose to play or spotlight, I'll suggest a Big List alternative that I claim is better music. Then your listeners, readers can vote on their favorites. Then I pick one, and you have to find an alternative that you claim is better music. II suggest that my back-to-basics music list will garner the most favorite votes and comments.
NPR, you can choose any new music you covered in the last year or two. It can be any type of music, any format, any style, from anywhere in the world. I'll find a song from The BIG LIST close to that style. both selections will be played and YOUR listeners can vote on their favorites. The odds are on your side, but the music quality is on mine!
The Big List : http://wp.me/p5S9X-36 or search 'Musea 100 Plus'. If the internet is the world's first jukebox, this list is the first contents of that jukebox.
My contention is that there is a worldwide golden age of original great music going on now, none of which NPR or the mainstream seems to be aware of. NPR ready for the challenge?
Does NPR stand for quality in music coverage? Not according to art revolutionary, musician, and editor of the zine Musea ,Tom Hendricks who has challenged the NPR music staff to a 200 song music challenge - the biggest in history. Hendricks calls it the "Trendy Versus Quality" 200 song challenge. He's suggested that NPR can choose any 200 recent songs covered on NPR versus his best of world music on the internet list. http://wp.me/p5S9X-36. Music lovers are asked to voice comments and join in the music challenge and make world history.
