I was wondering today that why is it that the music of today doesn't give off soul/sol? It doesn't make you feel like the person who is singing the song, can actually heal your SOUL with the lyrics.....

I grew up listening to my mom and dad's favorite songs as a little kid, and the music touched me in a way that this "holographic" music couldn't......It really lift my spirit.........

Music (muse) is suppose to inspire you, heal you, and enlighten you. The music of today is watered down to a level were you only create negative influences in your life due to their messages......

Inspiration is suppose to flow from the messengers vocal chords (vibrations) and heal the person(s) who is consuming the vibratory energy of the muse (music).....

Here's one of my favorite songs by Mrs. Etta James....

Etta James-I'd rather go blind



Thanks mom and dad for helping me to inspire my soul/sol.......

This song by Mrs. Etta James is perosnally one of my favorites because it can make you sad, glad, and mad all at the same time.....thats the way music suppose to make you feel...make you feel EMOTIONS.....I love music, without music, I don't know if I would have overcome as many things as I have.....

You're a deep sista, but the inspiration flows from the MUSIC.

ALL music is "vibration"...from musical instruments as well as vocal chords.

For example, listen to this song by Santana, and tell me if you can feel the groove:

Because once all these coon ass rappers sold their souls/sol's to the devil just to be rich and famous, the real soulful in essence of r&b was lost. No wonder why I have oldies and goodies from the 70's and 80's and some old school hip and R&B on my computer.

I grew up listening to my mothers music, so I know what you're trying to say. I always wished I grew up in her days lol. Anyway you can always look outside of a certain genre, to get the feeling your explaining.
If you're looking for music that speaks to you and has soul, and meaning, the best artist out in 2012 is Adele.
Just listen to this song, ALL OF IT PLEASE, it gets better!! lol

If you allow yourself to open your mind to different music, you'll see that this "soul" music your talking about is still alive in different music today. It might not be the SAME but the truth is music NEVER stays the same, it always changes, and you either go along with it or you don't.
Adele is just a singer she doesn't classify her herself in any genre. She sings songs that she actually wrote herself, after a break up with her boyfriend. I think you might like her. If not, I don't know lol
