The Beatles are the perfect example of how what was once the most human and pure form of music yet created, jazz & Blues, was turned into a unique new format that while extremely enjoyable is also of less quality due to commercialism. I would say the state of music is changing so rapidly that it is currently void, it eats all meaning, this is why there are so many sub genres. But new stuff isn't really being created, it's just very similar to the old stuff. But there are ways to do it.
What if a video game, instead of having each level play music at a different key ( as most do most of the time now ), each was in the same key, for a smoother transition, and yet there were 12 versions of the soundtrack, one in each key, and the game cycled through them? This would have a huge effect on the immersion of the gameplay. There are many ideas like this, this is just one.

Jazz and blues and folk became popular through exploitation of their popularity, we have extremely selective memory of these kinds of music. They had more musically going on than modern pop music of course, but fundamentally they were popularised as derivative, commercial products that took advantage of a rising lower comsumerist class in America that suddenly heard songs they could relate to on the radio. They sound a lot purer and humane to us now in the bubble of talent and hindsight, but make no mistake that we've selected the cream of the crop.

I meant popular appeal but whatever
Why do you say bullshit?
I guess you mean why is what I'm saying bullshit? It's not bullshit, I just assumed the poster meant 'pure' in contrast to modern commercial 'unpure' music. Otherwise, I don't know what they meant by pure
