SHAPES OR REFLECTS

Does Music shape culture or simply relect it? I think the honest answer is that it does both. A good example of a song that reflects culture is Myspace by Eleventyseven. Everyone either has a Myspace page or they know someone who does. Check out the lyrics:

Tell me all about yourself
Tell me all about your favorite bands
How they're super-indie-neo-hardcore
Tell me all about your favorite hobbies
And the way you love sunsets
Well who doesn't?

Still I'd like the chance to really see If what you say is true and has integrity
Cause I could know everything about you
And still know nothing at all
I know that it's wrong to form an opinion on only what I see
But in my defense it's really hard to know
When MySpace is the only thing that you ever show

So it seems you've got a lot of friends
How many of them know you
Or even care if you're alive or dead?
When was the last time you were honest Instead of posting blogs of fake emotions?
Still I'd like the chance to really see If what you say is true and has integrity
Cause I could know everything about you
And still know nothing at all
I know that it's wrong to form an opinion on only what I see
But in my defense it's really hard to know
When MySpace is the only thing that you ever show

When you finally resurface to the point of finding purpose
We'll begin to see just who you are
I know that it's wrong to form an opinion on only what I see
But in my defense it's really hard to know
When MySpace is the only thing that you ever show

I agree that music both reflects our culture and shapes it. That's way the church should have the best musicians on the planet because music is the heart beat of our culture. I'm not a musician, but I think musicians can have a powerful ministry.
