Re: Is S&M by Rihanna EDM?

I know this thread has devolved in to shenanigans but I'm gonna post a serious opinion anyways cause I like this topic.

1. Genre names are only useful when talking about music, cause it's easier to say, "country music" than it is to say, "music primarily driven by acoustic guitars, lyrics commonly involving love and adventure, and singers with an accent commonly found in the southern united states." So asking whether something is EDM or Pop or a hybrid of the two is kind of a hollow question which is why some people are being snarky in their response; cause why does it matter as long as the people you're talking to understand what you're saying?

2. Music is constantly evolving, and I think it's reasonable to say that pop music trails a few years behind the current level of musical advancement. People don't like new things, so new things are invented and musicians begin exploring them, and after a few years people start to get used to the sound so it starts sounding, "new and cool" to them and then music labels jump on that opportunity to package and mass produce it to make a fuckton of money.

As such, pop music has been taking more and more cues from electronic music. At some point 20 or 30 years ago people started realizing that there's only so many ways you can play a guitar chord progression and sing about your girlfriend, so as song structure started to stagnate musicians started exploring timbre and texture instead which resulted in the ridiculously complicated synthesizers you hear in electronic music today. After a while that sound crept in to the mainstream and pop has been moving more and more in that direction; songs like S&M certainly have some electronic elements like synth leads and basses, and current pop is even more in that direction with almost exclusively electronic sounds, instrumental choruses, and lyrics used as a sonic tool moreso than to tell a story.

But that's just like... my opinion, man.

What? Someone had to kill this shit thread. No? It was nicely dying off.

You're overthinking the obvious.

Re: Is S&M by Rihanna EDM?

Whenever, you find yourself wondering whether a song is Eeh Dee Ehm, ask yourself two simple questions:
  1. Is it electronic?
  2. Can people dance to it?

If you answered yes to both of these questions, then you are listening to electronic dance music.

EDM is not a genre. Similarly to how Orchestral Music is not a genre, or rock music, or hip-hop. These terms describe kinds of music which employ certain instrumentation and techniques. They are like the species to the genus. A genus of EDM might be Trance, for example.

Is going to be another one of those mod revolution threads where we keep dictating the conversation to our users. I love these threads!
