How YouTube Manipulates Our Musical Minds

Deams: That’s the way a lot of the business works just like on YouTube. A lot of people base the quality of the music on the views that the song has and the comments instead of paying attention to music. Music is almost turning into a soundtrack while people are reading comments.

Matthias Mazur: Absolutely. I think we’ve been trained and I mean I’m also guilty of it, you know?

Deams: Everyone is.

Matthias Mazur: And we’re aware of it but I still like when any piece of video, you really check the comments to see it. First of all, I check the ratings to see if it’s more of a positive, is it more of a liked video or not and then look at the comments to see if it’s legit and then I consume the content which is you’re already biased in your mind and I’m aware of it but you’re already biased.

What is your opinion on the influence of YouTube on our musical minds? I would love to hear your opinions in the comments section below. :)
