I've been bought.

And so have you.

1 Corinthians 6:20:
 
Douay-Rheims Bible
For you are bought with a great price. Glorify and bear God in your body.

Weymouth New Testament
And you are not your own, for you have been redeemed at infinite cost. Therefore glorify God in your bodies.

When I hear some of the same songs playing everywhere and see everyone dancing to it and singing it and just enjoying it, I may get a notion to search for the lyrics...because, more times than not, most of the words are not at all easy to understand.
What I often find is that the song says NOTHING. Still, everybody seems to be loving it, blinded by a beat. They give their time, energy, thoughts, bodies (dancing) and money to this music. They feed off of it and feel energized and relevant to the time we are in. Yet, this is acting like they've been bought..by the music makers...when we've all been bought by Jesus Christ. I can't help but care what my music says. You all should as well. & this goes deeper than music because the message is about not following a trend just because it's trendy...but instead, PURPOSELY seeking to glorify God at all times.
