How do I not hate today's music?

May 14, 2024 05:39PM
I mean its more than that... Leif Garrett looks like a damn bad ass general from WW2 compared to whatever the hell I just saw. But OK... So was Abba, the BeeGees, Elton John, Donna Summer, KC and the Sunshine Band... are they the equivalent to the pop stars today? I'm just not hip to the music today? My daughter knows all the words to songs that, to me, suck... not just a little bit either. I mean they are horrible to listen to. I want to think I can still recognize good music and that my age doesn't affect that.

It also occurred to me that Zeppelin was classic rock when I was growing up. I was born in January 1968... And it seemed like old music.... so did the Beatles. But it was just a decade or so... I was listening to the radio and the DJ (is that what they're called?) said 30 years ago today Soundgarden put out this song... And although I don't feel like Soundgarden is modern... I don't feel like that record was 30 years ago...

Uptown Funk was released 2014... My daughter was 4... Stairway to Heaven released late in 1971... I was 3 years 10 months. But she, now 14, feels like Uptown Funk is contemporary... whereas I, at age 14, felt Stairway was pretty old.

Anyway, Taylor Swift sucks IMO. Kidding. I kid, I kid... I'm a kidder.

Edit: Sorry for another "Today's music sucks" thread topic.

Edit #2 1976 Top 100

Edit #3 This really goes for all music... not just the pop stuff. The last 20 years... the last 10 especially have been rough on rock and sub-genres. I'm sure there have been parents at each generation... "That's not music!". "All the songs today sound the same"... but that's what I say now... because most rock-type music sounds the same to me. And there I am... out of touch.
