If I could write about music half as well as Mr. Soderberg, I would drop out of grad school tomorrow.
I found this on his blog during a discussion with a facebook friend regarding Beyonce’s “(Girls) Who Run the World” and the “Pon de Floor” Sample. I can’t say that I always agree with his conclusions, but I enjoy reading how he got there. You get the sense that he really listens to the music and thinks about how it all comes together. Further, he seems to understand how shifts in the business have affected artists and therefore the quality of the music. If you enjoy reading well-written, thought provoking articles about music definitely check him out. Just come back here, okay?
