REBECCA BLACK: WINNERS AND LOSERS | FUTUREHIT.DNA

A week ago, I certainly didn’t intend to write (or obsess) so much about Rebecca Black and her viral internet meme “Friday”. However, there is so so much to learn from this track. In one week, this song basically upended the music business conversation. What are the results of this? – Jay Frank

Does Humour Belong In Music?

In 1984 Frank Zappa posed the question: “Does humour belong in music?” (though he used the American spelling of humor).

There has been humour in music for a long time, and it seems at the moment that there is resurgence of South African musicians taking a look at themselves and our society and embracing the humour of diversity.

Here are three examples:

Die Antwoord – Zef Side

Jack Parow – Cooler As Ekke

Deep Fried Man – It’s Complicated
