Hey all, was bored so I thought I would just share an idea that sounded cool; in my head at least.
Of everything that is mainstream and that usually most of the modern world knows about besides cinema it is music. Everywhere around the world people know about the great U.S. artists like Elvis, Micheal Jackson, Madonna and countless others as well as the U.K.'s Beatles, Queen, Led Zepplin, etc...
Now with how universal music is and how a nation can literaly revolve around a single artist, I would think that there would be at least some sort of competition, other than fighting for sales and the charts, for the nations to get together and just jam it out. So I propose the "Music Olympics", patent pending, or whatever on earth you would like to call it.
Currently I am tired of the way the world, or at least my own nation, gets enamored with just a single genre of music and then plays it over and over and over and over again without delving into a different genre until I personally think either the nation has finally had enough of it or they just run out of material. You can see it rap, rock, pop, jazz, blues and so on. Remember back in the day when you had massive stars in the rap genre like Snoop, Notorious B.I.G and Tupac out there just blasting it out in front of everyone? I mean, I personally can barely astand the genre to begin with but those guys and countless others literally started such an occult following in the genre that still has it's mark in the industry. Nowadays everyone is trying to piggy-back off of thier success and make a quick buck; I mean really, have you HEARD the stuff that is coming out of that genre lately? And seriously, the above statement can be said for any genre.
So instead of draining an entire genre out of it's appeal with so much garbage coming out why not make it a world-wide competition? Artists from around the world can get together, show off, have fun and become inspired by another culture's style. I think it would make for at least one hell of a party and let people from other nations get to hear ANOTHER nations biggest artists at a world-wide event and not have to search for them in the unorganized universe that is the internet. I mean c'mon! Psy, from Korea, had already put out 4 albums and made millions of dollars in a number of years before the majority of the rest of the world even heard of the guy.
