Why are we trying to be so perfect?

The death of Prince today and David Bowie recently serve as reminders to me that great music is rarely if ever perfect. Listen to how beautiful their music is... and listen to how imperfect many of those recordings are. As I mentioned in a recent post, editing technology has led to a need for music production to be razor perfect in pop music today. To me, that strips the music of some of its humanity.

Join me in revisiting some of these great recordings. Enjoy their imperfections. Enjoy their beauty.
