"Any musical innovation is full of danger to the whole State, and ought to be prohibited. So Damon tells me, and I can quite believe him; he says that when modes of music change, the fundamental laws of the State always change with them."-- Plato, Republic IV.


QUOTE
The idea that music can transform reality predates by many millennia the category "music" as we know it. Before art was understood as a phenomenon in itself apart from its ritual application (a relatively recent and culturally specific development), what we now call music was indistinguishable from magic. There is a wonderful, intoxicating romance that runs from Pythagorean harmonics through Platonic musical ethos to Boethius's codification of Greek tunings, then into the Renaissance cosmologies that prefigured modern astrophysics, on the idea that a change of music is a change of consciousness, culture, and even physical reality.


Does music have an influence on culture change? Or does music merely reflect culture change? Which came first, the chicken or the egg? I'm not really sure...I think it could be either.
Yet, the media does play an extremely significant role in shaping culture today. Mainstream music is broadcasted through the media to the public masses. Popular music is mass distributed and has a tremendous effect on society, especially on adolescents and young adults.

I do see a parallel between popular music (the music heard on the radio or on television) and the culture we live in. I won't go into the details about how they are similar, but I am sure that you can make the connection.

Mainstream music either helps to mold a changing society, or subliminally reinforces social norms.

Music plays very important role in the culture of any country and it has deep impact on the society. The latest music has changed and has brought some innovation but people like me are interested in old and trendy music that has real impact on society.
