My opponent has for no reason (to my knowledge) decided to forfeit the round. I will post my debate case and hope you pick the best.

To begin, We must look at each artist's top selling music as well as the meaning of the lyrics and how it affects people in general.

First area of analysis: Music quality.

It doesn't take a music major, to determine which music was better in terms of voice, harmony, and beat. The beetles song showed signs of professionalism as well as composure in terms of harmony and beat. The background was filled with beats that not only adds to the quality of the music, but also supports the tone of the music itself. Justin Biebers music however; lacks the component that screams out professionalism. His song has no meaning what so ever. His beat is so intense that it takes away from the musi itself as people are now focused on the beat and not the music as a whole (lyrics). This creates a lack of harmony as a failed contrast in both lyric and beat is created.

Lyrics: meaning

When it comes to lyrics, there shouldn't be a debate. It-is clear that the Lyrics created by the beetles is far superior than that of Justin Bieber, as it is able to convey its tone towards the music, The Beetles song talks about the every day conflict in life, problem that we are all faced with, making his music so much easier to relate to. Justin Biebers song on the contrary, talks of his personal conflict in acquiring the love of his life. The fact that NO ONE ELSE in the world share the same love life as Justin Bieber, makes it hard to understand the tone of the music or what the artist is really trying to tell us.

People:

It is clear that I do not need to present a survey of how many people likes Justin Biebers songs since YouTube comment and ranking system has done this for me. Please read the comment in all four links.

Thank you, and i hope to recieve your side of the argument.

I must have mistakenly posted the wrong argument.

To begin, We must look at each artist's top selling music as well as the meaning of the lyrics and how it affects people in general.

First area of analysis: Music quality.

Justin Bieber is a better singer as he seems to appeal to the younger as well as the older age. The quality of a great singer is that he or she is able to appeal to most is not all age groups. His voice unlike that of the beetles, exerts a melodious tone.

Lyrics: meaning

Justin Bieber's lyrics talks of the average persons struggle to acquire or rather gain the love of there lives.

People:
Many people seem to like justin bieber solely because of his music and voice. The fact that he sells so many albums each year proves that he is a great singer.

Thank you, and i hope to recieve your side of the argument.

I do not want this round to go against you giving me a unholy boost. If interest is alive the debate may be revived.

First area of analysis: Music quality.

Justin Bieber is a better singer as he seems to appeal to the younger as well as the older age. The quality of a great singer is that he or she is able to appeal to most is not all age groups. His voice unlike that of the beetles, exerts a melodious tone.

Now, Justin Bieber has the upperhand due to technology. In 1964 song were harder to get out to the masses then today (go to ITunes and buy a song. Very easy). Judging by this it would be unfair to judge with online numbers, because the Beatles didn't have the technology. It would be impossible to assume that just he has the means, reaching out to more people, doesn't make him a better singer.
You again mentioned about age groups. The ideal singer always wants to branch out, but age groups are not to be taken in. Most other singers also had similar demography. I will reach your last points in the endgames of the debate.

people do not buy Justin Bieber music because of technologies but because he can sing. The Beetles had access to many of the technologies used today, they were able to record, auto tune and even create music videos. The beetles song can also be purchased in itunes. the fact of the matter is that Justin bieber is able to create meaningful, as well as strategically in placed beats that appeals to all age.

You again mentioned about age groups. The ideal singer always wants to branch out, but age groups are not to be taken in. Most other singers also had similar demography. I will reach your last points in the endgames of the debate.
My opponent mentions that singers want to branch out, however he failed to realize that this is exactly what Justin Bieber has done. The fact that he is able to connect to all age groups, appeal to almost all individual as well as transform a song named "BABY" into a hit, simply proves that he is a better singer.
