So if we talk musically in terms of harmony and melody (apart from lyrics) how can you tell if music is bad or good when all music are just different chord progressions and different melodies?
If you are saying that the Beatles are better than Taylor Swift (apart from lyrics, voice, cultural background, genre)..why would you think so? What makes a song so great, special and genius for you?
I'm seeking an answer than can improve my vision when writing music, something theoretical and not just talking subjectively (I know that if you like it then it's good)
Some novels are good and some bad, some has obvious plots and bad characters developing and some not, some films are bad because of bad script\bad acting\bad editing or bad cinematography..whether you like it or not, it's personal yes but you can still tell which is good and which is not.
Same applies on music, I'm looking for an answer to explain me why some music is better than other, there's a reason why Pink Floyd music is better than Justin Bieber, even if you like Justin Bieber..it's about the instrumentation and good composition but as a music theory beginner I want to understand it from analytical point, like chords..melody and other stuff
Like if I make a song now and it's not so good why would you think this way? (examples?) like is the melody doesn't sound so good? Are some songs better than others because they have better harmony?.
