The Greatest Music of All Time Outline
A. Introduction
Hook Statement: The music industry has significantly improved content
production and diversification, facilitating access to music genres through
streaming and downloading services. .
Purpose Statement: The most incredible music is determined by its impact on
the people during that time and its appreciation through different generations
(Bagley, Gifford & McKelvey, 2021).
Counterclaim: Although innovation in the music industry has paved the way for
immoral behavior and the neglect of culture, it has facilitated music diversity and
the production of quality songs (Joshi & Patole, 2019).
Thesis Statement: As society advances to a world of technology, the music
industry has also shifted from the traditional methods of streaming and production
to increasing the authenticity of the music.
The human species have always compared what looks or sounds to be the best in
all human aspects we deal with in daily life. Hence, from this comparison, we have
the rankings and groups formed and given different kinds of data to compare and rank
which stands out to be the best. When it comes to music, this is also a norm, polls are
conducted, and people answer different questions and choose from other types of
songs and rank which is the best. People come to such conclusions based on their
emotions when different sounds play from another music. As mentioned earlier,
music will have an effect, and a listener will choose to listen to a particular sound or
music based on their current emotions and functional need. And since human
emotions and practical needs change from time to time, the need for different kinds of
songs is there to cater to such feelings and needs. It is important to note that highlevel music has been found to have a more significant emotional effect on humans.
Mammals are animal species that communicate through the use of sound. Hence,
birds and whales have also been found to have a sound that enables them to sing.
However, birds have been studied, and it is known that they can produce different
sounds, which gives them the advantage to make good songs derived from these
different sounds that they can have.
Music has been used in a different context to achieve another purpose. It is known
as a source of entertainment, but it is important to note that music goes far beyond
just being an entertainment industry. We have religions using music to worship
and praise their God. They also use music as a form of prayer which mainly
means communicating to God. Hence such sounds will be significantly used in
religious institutions because they believe that playing such music helps stay
connected with their spiritual beings. We also have people who have sung songs
of liberation. These songs were meant to mock the oppressors and motivate those
oppressed to defeat the oppressor and enjoy equal rights if they unite. African
dances are some of the oldest dances that are still in existence. The movement in
these dances is inseparable from the music being played. It would be proper to say
that the music played is always connected with the dancers' activity, making it
unique for traditional African music (Green, 2022).
Songs and music have always been part of human history, and this is why we
have different types of songs addressing the different contexts in human history.
However, it is essential to note that some of the critical parts in any song include
the pitch level, lyrics, and sound. Poems have been one of the most significant
parts to trigger emotions based on the human context. Ruth and Schramm, 2022)
explain the effect of prosocial lyrics and musical production elements on feelings,
thoughts, and behavior. The lyrics trigger has to have ideas, emotions and behave
in a certain way according to what the music lyrics are saying. Hence, music
lyrics have been made simpler, making it easy for the human mind to get the
message entailed in a given song faster and internalize the lyrics, causing a trigger
on their thoughts, emotions, and overall behavior when the music a particular
song plays.
B. Body
1. Increased Music Diversification
The most significant development in the music industry is the
diversification of music and intercontinental collaboration between artists.
Collaboration between diverse artists creates a platform for marketing and
socialization, promoting cultural and racial diversity (Haines & Matthews,
2. Collective music association has also enabled consumers from different
geographical locations to stream and download songs. The music industry has
surpassed geographical areas through streaming services to allow consumers with
varying music preferences (Sorokowski et al., 2017). With more consumers
subscribing to music platforms, music production has become digitalized, and the
profits for the music industry have increased (Im, Song & Jung, 2019).
Furthermore, technology has improved music production increasing the quality of
content and profits for music industries.
3. Digital Music Production
Technology in music production has limited the time to record and release
songs since artists and producers have access to high-quality equipment.
Unlike traditional music composition, current artists utilize highly
advanced instruments and sound technology to build on their songs and
voice quality (Hennekam et al., 2019).
Since the music industry is a fast-growing business, artists are expected to
train their vocals and improve their songs. With sound systems and vocal
stimulators, musicians train their voices and maintain their stamina for
many years despite consistent practicing. This motivates artists and
producers to pay attention to music components to deliver quality products
to consumers (Anggraeni & Shauki, 2021).
4. Consequently, increased competition in the industry has further contributed to
producing quality sounds since established artists want to remain on top while
upcoming artists want to maximize their potential (Drott, 2018). Either way, the
digitalization of music has improved the quality of music and genres released to
the consumer.
5. Incorporation of current events.
The articulation of current events in music production has become the new
norm. As a means of increasing ratings and streaming views, the message
of today’s music tends to highlight various social and political events
(Chalmer, Matthews & Hyslop, 2021).
Through this art of music-making, artists can create controversial
awareness and offer psychological comfort for individuals facing
challenges. These controversial topics can be the environment, mental
health, crime, and social cognition (Bhardwaj, 2021).
Although music with romanticism has a large audience than other genres,
musicians who highlight current events in their music are more likely to
get higher ratings (Barneva et al., 2021).
6. High-Quality Music and Production Services
Increased music industry digitalization and marketing have contributed
significantly to excellent music production. Music composers and
producers have access to many digital instruments that culminates the
production process to improve the quality of the end product (Arco, 2018).
With the development of more music bands and consistent innovation in
the music industry, consumers can enjoy high-quality music at affordable
rates (Saputra, 2021).
In addition, technology has facilitated the production of different avenues
of marketing music and live streaming. These music apps allow users to
navigate through different genres of music while browsing for their
preferences (Parc & Kim, 2020). Although there is a fixed fee for using
the platforms, consumers are guaranteed access to millions of songs and
artists. This makes it easier for them to choose their interests, and
consumers’ feedback helps artists improve (Matthews, 2020).
Moreover, consumer demands push composers and producers to upgrade
the quality of their released songs. The current generation has experienced
great songs due to technology and marketing techniques implemented in
the music industry (Youngblood, 2019).
7. Counterclaim
Although the quality and production of music have improved due to
technology, the beliefs and morality of various cultures have been lost
while trying to meet consumer demands. The purpose of music production
has become more focused on profits and ratings, and the authenticity of
music is not guaranteed (Liebman, Saar-Tsechansky, Stone, 2019).
Also, since the music industry has been transformed into a business, it is
difficult to distinguish between artists with a great appreciation for music
and those interested in making it (Mizzau, 2020).
However, these challenges have not hindered the diversification and
growth of music on different levels. Despite the challenges associated with
the music industry, the type and quality of released music have
significantly improved from traditional times (Khvorostyanaya &
Tevanyan, 2021).
digital music consumption. Information Technology & People.
The article paper articulates whether consumers' use of streaming services
to access music influences the greatest songs of all time. It determines
whether streaming services can affect the consideration of modern music
as the greatest hits of all time. The study findings show that songs from
the modern era are more likely to be included in the most incredible songs
because they are available online, unlike golden age songs. Since deceased
but great artists produced old songs are not online, most people do not
listen to them. Therefore, the likelihood of people voting for them as the
greatest songs of all time is slim.
The article is a solid and reliable source as it involves an empirical study
that examines the top 100 songs according to Korean billboard charts. The
study collects reliable data from the Korean music industry, reflecting on
some Korean songs that have never been published online. The research
goal is to measure how the digital music market influences the inclusion of
songs in the top 100 songs in the Korean music billboard charts. The
article is biased by targeting Korean music only; the authors are music
experts. One of the others has a master's in music, and the other two have
achieved degrees in music. The article is among the most suitable
references in the bibliography as it presents an analysis conducted by
musical specialists who have analyzed songs for at least ten years.
The article is helpful in the present research because it presents how
golden age songs cannot make it to the Korean top charts. The report is
beneficial to the study as it shows how an essential factor, the digital
music market, affects the analysis of the greatest songs of all time. It helps
shape the present study since the "digital market" is a valid variable in the
research. Some songs do not have equal opportunities to be regarded as
the greatest because few people have access to them. However, the source
cannot be used alone because it has limited determinants regarding
determining when ranking the greatest songs of all time.
C. Conclusion
In conclusion, it is essential to note that music has played a significant role in every
human aspect in the present world. For example, as explained by Rousu and Conrad,
2022, music is used in economics teaching. Musical backgrounds and other musical lyrics
are extensively used as the lectures are taught. Additionally, the current world celebrates
music superstars from all kinds of musical genres. Each music genre has its own master.
It is important to note that the contemporary world has taken over the social media
spaces, and we have mobile phone applications made to facilitate communication on
these social media spaces. We have applications such as TikTok, where users try to make
different dance moves that go along with their music. Various content creators integrate
their content with diverse musical backgrounds in other apps such as YouTube. Several
people around the world have also ventured into the music industry. The music industry
is an excellent source of income for creative artists who have joined the music industry.
Some music artists are celebrities through the music industry. It is also important to note
that music artists make money and amass wealth as their music pays them, making it their
primary source of income. Others make income from the music industry, including music
producers, music writers, and directors, who benefit directly from the music these artists
make (Janosov, 2020). Hence, from the above examples, we can see how songs have
always been used to get the attention of humans and even cultivate their thoughts,
emotions, and behavior even on these social media spaces.
Over the years, the music industry has experienced different technological improvements,
increasing its ability to meet customer demands. The current age can be considered the
most outstanding music era since it has shifted from traditional recording methods to
modern techniques (Saragih, Simatupang & Sunitiyoso, 2018). Although there are several
discrepancies in the production and marketing of music content, the current society has
received enormous benefits from music innovation.
