Thread Name: Is modern music shite?
Subject: RE: Is modern music shite?
I don't think we're meant to get it. Every generation wants their own music to express themselves through. They know that anyone over 25 knows nothing about how they feel or what makes them tick because we're all stupid. So why would they possibly want to find any pleasure in sharing the same sort of music as us old farts?
I've learned to go back and re-visit music I would have dismissed out of hand as a youngster and some of what I love now, I would have hated then. That's not just true of music either. Given time they will broaden their outlook and be more encompassing in their attitudes but it's true to say that we all hold a special place in our hearts for the first music we could call "ours".
I'm glad my time for teenage angst was in the late sixties and early seventies, I think there was some great music that came from that era but we also had our fair share of SH**** and my Dad just didn't get it! Tsk!
