The good, the bad and the ugly

My first and second love is Music. Music heals my soul. Good music cures me.Bad music makes me sick.So what do i want to say.

Music has been used to do a lot of things; worship the woman (GOOD),glorify sex (BAD), Abuse the woman (UGLY.

You will recall the days of Kenny Rodgers;

You are so beautiful to me
You are so beautiful to me
Can`t you see?
You`re everything I hope for
You`re everything I need
You are so beautiful to me
You are so beautiful to me.

and you will want to recall Phil Collins even better. she is an easy lover still remaining my favourite.
Songs that make you know what i mean

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waiting for this moment all my life, oh Lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord

And then we move to the bad. 50 cent et al...

50 cent with glorifying sex

Look at this with Lil Kim

I got the magic stick
I know if I can hit once, I can hit twice
I hit the baddest chicks
Shorty don't believe me, then come with me tonight
And I'll show you maaagic
(What? What?) Maaagic
I got the magic stick

Ludacris feels nothing for the skirt wearers and does nothing to hide it.
This song still jazzes me.

She said she never done it, she said she never tried
She's sittin there tellin a motherfuckin lie

She said she was a Christian and she grew up in the church (in the church)
Would stay a Virgin if for better or for worse (or for worse)
Had plenty friends and got offers all the time (all the time)
Swore up and down she was just one of a kind (of a kind)
She said she's loved, but she's never gotten pimped (gotten pimped)
Not dominated couldn't imagine, never dreamt (never dreamt)
And though she steady looking for the perfect man (perfect man)
To buy a ring and take her motherfucking hand (man)

Not forgetting "AREA CODE"

What could have the woman done to deserve the kind of lyrics that are being spurn today.

Love songs have now been relegated to boys bands.And when we loved the bands they told us

These chicks don't even know the name of my band...
But they're all on me like they wanna hold hands...
Cuz once I blow they know that i'll be the man...
All because I'm the lead singer of my band...

Granted, men have also been wronged by women and sing songs like this whose artist and title eludes me...

If i had stuck to my original plan
You would have been a one night stand my bad
I should have known you could never be true
Instead i had you...............

Singing about women calling them beautiful,whores or sexual objects still remain the most lucrative way to make money.

I_Wayne sings
One man can't satisfy her
She needs more wood for da fire
Sex price getting higher, ah more money she require
House, car , and land she desire
so from di prostitution work she won't retire
Flames and fireee,
sun is cool burn di flesh, seller, and the fire

My 15 year brother tells me this is his favourite song. I am lost.

Tell me people; has the woman changed. Was she more adorable in the past and has evolved slowly to become gold digger, bitch then whore. What don't we do right. Artistes sing what they love and what they see in the society.

Will you tell me your good,bad and ugly lyrics
