Subject: RE: Popular Music. Doomed to oblivion?
Depends what you mean by 'remembered'. There will be specialists and eccentrics who will 'remember' bits and pieces of anything and everything - as for the great mass of humanity, they will remember the music that was around them when they were sixteen, and what they heard a day previous. There is no reason to think much of what we get all excited about today will be remembered by anyone in a hundred years, other than the odd bored robot shoved in a back room somewhere.
