At MUSICinsideU our goal is to make every song count towards your life, by helping you understand the experiences that drive every song's beat and lyrics.
Like any other art form, music can transmit bad experiences as well as good ones. We do not showcase songs or music videos that:
- glorify violence
- objectify women or men
- contain graphic content
- include needlessly explicit lyrics
"I am a violent man who has learned not to be violent and regrets his violence."
- John Lennon
"Unfortunately, where music has gone these days, it's really more about sex than it is about intimacy. It would be nice to see us get back to being in love and being intimate as opposed to just having sex."
"When you act with your clothes on, it's a performance. When you act with your clothes off, it's a documentary. I don't do documentaries."
"Sometimes I get asked, 'Do you feel responsible about what you put out lyrically?' or 'What are your thoughts on censorship?' I've always said, based on my own head, 'Give people the benefit of the doubt. Give them credit to think for themselves.' Nobody has the right to say, 'Hey, I'm telling you what you can and cannot see, because I know better than you." That's ridiculous. I feel, "Yeah, empower the individual.' And then you turn on the news and you see some new idiot who kills kids in a church, and my argument goes out the window. It's troubling.'
-Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails
"Violent music (and all violent media) effectively says its "ok" to be violent. It provides positive reinforcement for negative actions."
- Lupe Fiasco
"Women are to be valued for so much more than their sexuality. We aren't merely objects of desire."
- Sinead O'Connor
