  1. Unlike "comfort, beauty, ice cream, and a sunny day," music changes drastically over time. If you're accustomed to a certain sound or style, it's only natural that you'll find new music unappealing. Age doesn't divide us on things that stay the same, which music absolutely does not.

  2. I grew up in the 1970s. I was at the tail end of the Stones and the Brazil '66. I was in the middle of the popularity of Boston and Genesis. I like Big Band music. I like Glenn Miller and the Dorseys. I like early Sinatra, Nat King Cole and believe it or not, Doris Day. I have a Sam Cooke CD in my car. I have no idea what pop singer is popular these days. I will explore music I never heard and now and then something will really catch my ear and I'll have to download it. Most of the time it is an old song. Sometimes it is a contemporary song, but most of the time it is years old. It's from Johnny Mathis, or Jay and the Americans, or the Staple Singers. Point is: as far as music is concerned, I can go backwards in time without any trouble. I can go back decades before I was born. The contemporary music seems to be tough sledding. I have been told that I am not their target audience, but then again, I certainly was not the target audience for Glenn Miller's Chattanooga Cho Cho, either.

  3. "what's with kids these days? the music they listen to… back in my day…"

    i admit, i'm starting to get like that and i'm only 30. I love 80's and 90's metal. (and stuff that those bands that are still together still make today)

    the music they have now, i dunno what to even call it.

    i propose a new genre : "the crap kids are listening to these days"

    if you have trouble figuring out what belongs there…just take whatever crap kids are listening to these days and put it in there

    p.s.
    I know who Ella Fitzgerald is, because of the Fallout series. I like Skeeter Davis better…

  4. I've been completely out of touch with the modern music scene since 2004 when I was 21. The problem today is it's not even about talent anymore.

  5. lmao Ella Fitzgerald and Lady Gaga is not exactly an "even" comparison. The truth is if you looked at a Billboard Top 100 list from any decade, you'd find very few of the top artists you know about form that decade on it: they publish a Billboard 100 list every week, but the record for most lifetime entries on Billboard lists is around 150, and that's far from typical for top artists.

    What that simply means is that at any given time, the list is mostly made up of artists that come and go, they have their popularity, but they don't change the world or make a lasting mark like The Rolling Stones or something. Rooney acts like if you looked at a top sales list from when he was young, it would all be Aretha Franklin. No, you've just forgotten about all the other one-hit wonders.
