What is good music? How can one declare that one four-minute track of sound waves is better than another? What makes the Beatles better than Miley Cyrus? It’s always been a mystery to me. I was sitting one day, listening to the classic “Life on Mars” by David Bowie; goosebumps were running up and down my arms, and the lyrics were so insane yet all somehow made perfect sense. This is good music. Yet right after the iconic phone ring at the end of the song, Rihanna pops up in my playlist telling me to not “stop the music.” During one of my summers in Israel, all I listened to was that popular 2007 pop song that changed the moods of many middle school dances. Ever since that trip, every time I hear that “it’s getting late,” I am reminded of the beachy cities and the crazy Israeli drivers. Does this mean that David Bowie and Rihanna hold equal spots in my heart? It’s hard for me to write a clear definition of what good music is as there is no one reason that a song is better than another.
