    To me, true music is an expression and an art...and that's entertaining to me. Unfortunately, a large amount of what the music industry puts out there doesn't seem to fall into that description.

    It really depends. I mean some people think certain genres of music aren't even music. Like dubstep. I don't like dubstep but I don't think it's less musical than Rhianna's crap. I suppose it's just more avant garde.

    Personally I think it depends on the artist. Some musicians just sing the song but it doesn't have any depth so it doesn't really get the message across other are so heart felt that you are living the song as they sing it. Then there are the complete nonsense songs that have no meaning at all to any one.

    It should be entertaining, yet still be communication. The best type of music should talk To you, not ABOUT you. Sadly (and not to bash pop lovers) alot of today's modern music is about materialistic things; not anything meaningful.

    Compare this:


    To THIS:


    Which one's more meaningful: Partying all night long, or stoping suicide, hm?

    Music is only based on how the observer interprets it.

    according to google, music is 1.The art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.
    2.The vocal or instrumental sound produced in this way

    Music is the rhythm of the ocean slapping upon the shore. Music is the wind swaying a pine forrest. Musice is a campfire keeping me warm. Music is an earthquake, reminding me how small I really am.

    music is the freedom to show the way you think but for most people it's a way to express feelings that regular word can't show

    It should be communication first, entertainment second. Unfortunately how that pans out for a genre, song, or group, depends entirely on the person listening. I personally can't listen to pop music, it literally holds nothing for me, but that's just me.

    It's how I can express how I feel. It's a way for me to let go. Music is entertaining because it makes me have warm fuzzies alot. =)

    For me, music is the purest form of getting out emotions. It's the purest expression of how the artist feels. I love music as it has always helped me to deal with my emotions since no matter how you feel there is always a song about it.

    It's a form of art and expression, actually. But they can serve as forms of entertainment and communication as well.

    Music can pick me up, give me something to think about, even make me shed tears. I love music because it lets you go into another world, and you can experience so many different things from it. I also like how you can relate music to different situations and other things in the media.

    Depends who the performers are.

    If it has anything to do with Jazz and Classical, it's communication. These kind of musicians will go out of their way to "communicate" how much musical and technical skill they possess :)

    Certain genres of Rock, Pop and Rap/Hip-Hop is pure entertainment that doesn't require a great deal of skill to perform.

    It's finding an entertaining way to communicate some interesting happenings, like something sad or happy, i thinks it's mainly when an artist just wants to get out what they're holding in
