didn't see this post yesterday yes, it wouldn't be rapping but in the songs that use them, I have yet to hear a memorable melody that was used that was actually written for that song. To also answer the "thinking it's easy"...Doubt it's easy to to hear, mash, sample, ect. but unless the rap is great and original, I don't feel the song is alive in any way (this coming from an atheist!) Please don't go off my "amazing grace" , teacher! let me have another chance with a song I like! lol Rap isn't my thing either....but then again, most music isn't. Doesn't mean I hate it or automatically disrespect it. In fact, if it's that rare music that I describe that catches me, I don't WANT it on when I'm with other people or in a number of situations. When the music catches hold, outside of working out to it, I can't do anything, much less hold a conversation with someone, so many times I like having stuff around that doesn't force me to pay attention (Sax and maybe you will want to kill me, but easy listening jazz or that enya type faerie music is pretty good when eating a fine meal). rock and roll, blues, jazz, hip-hop, folk....all have those few songs that get me.....metal has more.
