I've just heard the "Hotel California" once again. Beautiful song from Eagles...
Watched nearly 10 covers on the YouTube, some of them are really awesome. This song was really a hit at its time. For some people, like me, it's still a hit, though I'm 29.
Through rethinking all that, I've got a question, probably you'll help me with that. Not that it's too important, but still...
In the past, there were a lot of songs which were telling some stories - from the start to the end, and they were very popular.
Now they are nonexistent. I can think of epic/power metal, but... You know the limits of these genres, not even in music (music sounds great for me), but in the discussed topics. Also, no one knows about them - popularity is zero.
So, what happened? Have modern people lost their will to actually listen to the songs they listen to?
Or, maybe I'm wrong about the past? Or about the present?
If I want to listen to something like that (without elves, axes, and big battles), is there anything like that?
P.S. Yes, there's also the rap style. But... Calling it popular is sort of erroneous. Certainly thousandfold less popular than Billie Eilish. And it stands pretty far from other music styles in terms of how actual music works from what I understand.
