Relating to music

A bit of a mini-blog. Music is something which everyone has varied tastes in. Some of us enjoy music due to it being pleasant. But a lot of music at least is supposed to have lyrics with meaning, or at least a coherent tone. Whether it be patriotic, solemn, happy, romantic, or what have you, most songs attempt ot play on one of these commonalities. One person's sadness for one reason can nonetheless be relatable to another individual which an altogether different situation. But with a lot of music, ie raves, being euphoric rather than anything else, could this indicate a sort of escapism among youth? Maybe. But is this any different from historical music of the youth (last 50 years or so?) I'm not sure it is, but perhaps we are seeing some sort of shift.
