Thread Name: Popular Music. Doomed to oblivion?
Subject: RE: Popular Music. Doomed to oblivion?
It might surprise many just how much aged pop music is taught and played in secondary schools these days. We have been to many concerts over the years that featured various styles of pop music dating back through the 70s, 60s, 50s, 40s and further. The students don't just leave this stuff at school many go on to form their own bands and make the most of their background knowledge. One of my daughters plays a song called "Why don't you do right?" which I had never heard before. She told me it was a Peggy Lee song ..... don't know where she got it from, I assume it was the school band.
