Any rhythmic expression....The main requirement is an instrumental. Without instruments playing a beat or whatnot, the singer or rapper is not performing music. With that said, the dude saying that music requires singing and not rapping(what he calls "talkin") is very wrong. Groups such as orchestras perform and release albums. They dont always include a chorus with them. Now I know for a fact you wont deny that orchestras play music. Your embedded ethnocentrism wont allow you to. Most orchestras consist of caucasian musicians; who do not sing. It is still music; and very good music at that. Therefore, hip-hop artists who grant it, for the most part, do not sing, still are considered musical performers due to the fact that their music displays rhythmic expressions. Lastly, hip-hop musicians are far more talented than you think when it comes to the complexity of their music and their lyrics specifically. Not always the case for rock an roll. However, I am not disrespecting the genre of rock and roll either. It is simply my stating that most people overlook the talent of hip-hop artists.
Them gothic chicks need to get themselves educations before they obtain the right to judge music that they have little to no knowledge about.

Example of Rap Lyrics- "I specialize in hypnotizing, im never compromising/
my skills are surprising, despite hate arising its love im reviving/
under pressure im thriving best come outta your hiding/
like Randy Johnson im sliding into the front seat confiding/
in the girl I hold dearest in my heart two souls colliding/
so before you judge me racist laws your abiding/
pick up your knowledge and like Game stop snitching, stop lying" -Me(Im 15, and not nearly talented enough to become a professional MC, plus it took my less than 2 minutes to come up with that)

Ok some Rock and Roll Lyrics-"IM NOT OKAYYYYYYYYYYYY"-My Chemical Romance....Now i could be wrong, but it prolly took them a bit longer to come up with that....
A dying art.
What the hell happened to music? I'm sick of this "BOOM BOOM POW" and "AUTO TUNE" bullshit. The mainstream music companies are even ruining indie bands now. Everything is starting to sound like the same shit. WAKE UP PEOPLE! IF THINGS DON'T CHANGE, A MUSICAL ARMAGEDDON IS IMMINENT!

Music creates a bond, a common good between two people, creating a profound friendship. You share and collaborate your ideas and feeback to help cope through problems.
When music actually guides you and helps you at times when most needed, music touches you. When music touches you it creates a memory, and that's why music is so memorable, as are friends.
Adam and nathan became friends through hip-hop music and became best friends for years.

1. What makes the world complete
2. something used to survive a difficult situation
3. a mode of transportation from this world to a new one temporarily
1. i felt like i was missing something, then i listened to some music :)

2. Susie: "today was really tough"

John: "you should listen to music. It makes everything better"

3. Penny: "What happened to you?"

Kate: "When i listen to music i forget where i am. i dont hear whats going on around me and i forget about my problems"

Something that should not be talked about, with your friends, family or strangers. Should be in the same "subjects never to talk about" list such as "Politics, Religion". No matter what you listen to, no matter what band makes the "music" somebody is gonna say how much they suck, and how talentless they are, Irregardless of what "genre". Thats why I listen to music by myself where nobody else can hear, so I don't have to defend it, or explain why I like it. LIke what you like already mother fuckers. God, this is the biggest "fanboy" "hater" site ever!
Do not talk about Religion, Politics, and Music, with anybody. This will constitute a pointless argument, and wasted time and animosity. I like New metal and metal. If you guys like rap, pop, or Green day, don't say what I listen to sucks, because YOU don't like it. I respect the music you listen to, so don't insult me. AND don't force it up my ass, like change the radio station in my car because you don't like it, And say how Led Zeppelin Is "god". WHICH IN MY OPINION Classic Rock Sucks Dick! It's over-played, old and stale!

Music is an expression... its an expression of self, your emotions, your life, the good, the bad, and everything in between. It's an escape from the world around us, whether you listen to music to drown out annoying family, or you play and write music to help you get through the tougher times in life. But, to any true musician, music is a way of life. It seems alot of musicians these days play music for the money and fame, but a real musican doesnt play for the money, cars, women... no, they play for the people out there who listen, they play for the feeling they get the moment they step out into the light, seeing the fans who wait, wanting to hear you play, they play for the sheer fact that they love doing it, and because music has become a part of them. To them, a life without music would be like waking up without your senses, like a huge emptiness inside them, unable to communicate how they truly feel.
Led Zeppelin, Johnny Cash, just some people who play amazing music etc.
