Your initial posting should be at least 200 words (not including the discussion prompt). You must start a thread in response to the prompt before you can read and reply to other students’ threads. In addition, respond to at least two threads from your classmates, including the thread above and below yours. Each of your responses to two of your classmates’ threads must be at least 75 words. If you are the first poster, respond to the thread below yours and one other thread.

1. Do you think that mass media mostly reflects musical taste, or does it play a major role in shaping musical taste? Do you feel that today’s music industry enhances or interferes with the relationship between the artist and their audience?

2. Think of a song or piece of music that has been a part of your life for a long time and expresses your musical identity. Has the significance or “meaning” of that song changed over the years? If so, what has changed in your perception of the song, and what factors in your life – personal, cultural, or other – might have contributed?
