Every time I turn the radio on and that awful racket that passes for music these days, I remember when modern songs were pleasant to listen. Songs such as:
Dark Moon
Love is blue
Ramona
Cry of the wild Goose

Couldn't agree more, Kendall

I love Skylark (Hoagy Carmicheal, Johnny Mercer)
Stardust (Hoagy and Mitchell Parish)

More modrin? Some Beatles. I even like Bachrach and David.

Most of the newer pop songs are poorly written, musically unattractive,
monosyllabic or monotonic, cliche chord progressions (unlike the great Gershwins, Porter, Berlin etc.) or one of my faves Leonard Bernstein (West Side Story)

or "Send in the Clowns".....Sondheim by Judy Collins

or young Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon.

The problem today with pop music is that the public is so uneducated when it comes to musical appreciation, since it was cut in the schools, and it goes along with the other educational lobotomies inflicted on the American public, a public official running for office can't find Libya on a map, Creationism is actually being taken seriously, scientists are being dissed because they are not politically viable,
and on it goes, doesn't it seem reasonable that the American public taste in pop music has been debased?

Music is an index into culture and society. Corruption doesn't stop in Washington or Wall Street but is carried on into the music biz.

Pop music today (I repeat) has been lobotomized.

Some of the best modern country stuff seems to me a faithful extension of the pop quality we enjoyed in the sixties. I still listen to (& collect) fifties & sixties music, but as an acceptable alternative that doesn't sound 'dated' I enjoy much of today's country music too - & folk, of course!

I recently got a CD of Sam Cooke with about 30 songs.

"Cupid", "You Send Me", "Another Saturday Night", "Bring It On Home", "What A Wonderful World It Would Be", "Only Sixteen", etc.

He was a close to a perfect Pop singer with perfect diction and great phrasing. He wrote most of his hit songs himself. He makes the current stuff on the AM radio sound like crap.

Fortunately we have a huge number of options other than what passes for the current top 40.

You don't ever have to hear it--unless you count having it inflicted on you by somebody with his or her radio, tape or CD player turned up so the whole car shakes with the bass,

And pity the poor kids who have this stuff as the music of their formative years.   Supposedly you always love the music you hear as a teenager.   Hard to believe it will be true with the current teenagers and the current top "songs"--many of which are just rap anyway--no melody.

I agree with pdq on this--Sam Cooke's songs are some of the best of the best.

But the best pop music in general was done in the 20's 30s and 40's.   Nothing can touch some of those.

Of course all the early & mid-60s Beatles and early Rolling Stones.

I'd go further than that - in my day Pop Music was all lobotomised fomulaic crap with exceptions proving rules - hell, I was born on August 22nd 1961 and just look at my birth number one! What a star to be born under! (See the thread Number one the day you were born? for more on this - be prepared for some major dissapointments!). For sure there's still the persistence of the moronic, but I'd say on whe whole it's better now than ever right now, with top bands, singers, writers, producers etc. very much in evidence. So, celebrate the old by all means, but it's possible to do so without missing the point of the present, or making opening salvos such as Every time I turn the radio on and that awful racket that passes for music these days... (that was Folk on 2 you were listening to, right?). And with that I'm off to Listen Again to pick up on the latest Tim Westwood selections which always makes me glad to be alive. Give it a try - you never know!

S O'P

PS - How many folkies does it take to change a lightbulb anyway?

PPS - There is a song in which we are urged to try to remember the kind of september when life was slow and oh so mellow which resides in some hellish nether-realm that is signposted Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here. Just the thought of it brings me out in hives and cold sweats and has me running for the toilet in a giddy delirium not sure which end to attend to first. Avoiding this song is my life's work - I live in dread fear of its cosummate awfulness and yet I know one day it will be death of me and that some wag (quite possibly my long suffering wife) will have it played at my funeral instead of my current song of choice (Joey Ramone's cover of What A wonderful World if you must know).

PPPS - In the spirit of the thread put me down for The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore by The Walker Brothers

All this thread is doing is (a) dating people and (b) showing that most people lose touch with the current "scene" that the younger generation are actually listening to.

Kendall: "Every time I turn the radio on and that awful racket that passes for music these days, I remember when modern songs were pleasant to listen."

Sounds JUST like my parents omplaining that "all this modern stuff is just a racket" and "why can't you listen to someone decent like Bing Crosby, Perry Como or Vera Lynn?"

I was actually listening to *some* stuff from their era but it was Django and/or Grappelli etc rather than "crooners", who I couldn't (and still can't) get on with. But the music I *was* listening to while they were complaining included some of the "greats" listed above, plus a lot of other really good well-crafted and musically interesting songs.

And they're still out there. Just as most of the stuff I was listening to in the 60s and 70s didn't get much (if any) radio airplay, and a lot that did was crap, there's a vibrant scene with good bands prodcuing some well-crafted, songs in among the dross that gets airplay.

It's the same with every generation, it seems. My kids listen to (and steal) my old vinyl, but it's the "prog" stuff they're after and they wouldn't be interested in "Herman's Hermits" or "Gerry and the Pacemakers" from "my" era (which I wasn't interested in either).

I bet a lot of the songs about in the days some of the other posters are getting all misty-eyed about were absolute crap, too...it tends to be the more decent stuff that stands the test of time. And in 30 years, I'm sure someone from my kids' generation will be on a music forum (or equivalent) moaning about what absolute crap is being tured out "these days", unlike the great days of the "early two thousands"!

On the day I was born it was Perry Como - Who I still can't really say I like but I can appreciate he is good at what he does :-) However - On the day I turned 16 it was Blackberry Way by the Move - WooHoo!

I don't think we will get anywhere comparing music from different eras. There is good and bad in all. What I would say is that music from my youth will probably always be my favourite becuae it was what I first got into and has been with me the longest. I would never seriously say it was any better or worse than anyone else's though.

There is good music still being produced, but for the most part it does not get mainstream radio air time. Having said that, I don't listen to mainstream radio anymore, so what do I know. Suzy Bogguss, for one, is writing and singing literate lyrics and recognizable melodies. In my opinion, one is more likely to hear good music in films than on the radio.

When I was a kid, rock and roll irritated me no end. But lately I've come to realize that it had something to offer - spirit, fun, good tunes, rhythm.

It just needed to be performed by somebody with actual talent. Enter Freddie and the Dowhops!

I still love many of the old rock 'n' roll songs I listened to back in the 1950s, BEFORE the "folk scare." Tough to single out a small number of favorites; I certainly love Sam Cooke, like anyone else with any taste at all.

Here's a couple of extra-wonderful examples that come to mind today. Tomorrow, I might find different ones to mention:

The Flamingoes' reinterpretation of "I Only Have Eyes For You." Perhaps the most magical, ethereal SOUND ever put on a 45rpm platter, a profoundly original rearrangement of an earlier generation's pop hit, from a time when "pop" meant something different from what it would mean later on.

Jackie Wilson, "Lonely Teardrops." 'Nuff said.

Just because it isn't to your taste doesn't mean that it is crap. Personally, I like Twisted Sister, but then again, it's being played on the oldies station these days. And I thought I was going to give Micca heart failure when he realized I was browsing the punk section at the local music store. I can't stand crooners, big band, doo wop, opera, most new age, and Bach, but that doesn't mean the music is crap, it just means it isn't to my taste.

You'll all have to pardon me, I'm going to go listen to some Social Distortion now.

Ranger1:

I think *I* posted above and made fun of your elders....and I'm *one* of them!!!

I think it's sad that people seem to stop listening to new music, or new genres, and that whatever was current in their own youth becomes fixed forever in their minds as "the golden age". Most of my neighbours are a few years younger than me and will fill up the local venue en-mass when an old punk band like "Eddie and the Hotrods" (who weren't actually very good even back in their day) are on, banging on about how wonderful they are, yet I just can't get them to go along and listen to "Tom Williams & The Boat" or "Origami Dinosaur" who are, IMO, immeasurably superior.

Dad, you're seriously dating yourself. "Today's teens" don't know who Twisted Sister is...they were popular 25 years ago. The people MY age remember them, though (I'm closing in on the big 4-0)

The Number 1 song on the US charts on the day of my birth was Don MacLean - American Pie. I never liked that song.

Favority "Pop" groups of my youth include Duran Duran, Journey, Twisted Sister, Poison, Bon Jovi.... I still listen to all of them.

There is nobody in my band under sixty.
Our songlist includes songs from the 1930s and songs from 2010 ('Good Enough' by Tom Petty if you want to know one). We do a Suzy Bogguss song, and I may just get away with dropping in "Mr Blue". I suspected that I was the only person to remember it. We won't do the intro verse though.
The trick is , never to stop listening to new stuff, and hang about with people with good musical taste, who are a different age from you.
There are some great songs about right now.
If you don't listen, you'll never hear them.

OMG, where did I go wrong?

I remember when your favorite songs were, The Diamond and Angus McFergus McTavish Dundee.

"Overkill" is one of my favorite songs Becca. I hope you and I and ranger1 can get together and play some Dungeons & Dragons sometime soon.

How many folkies does it take to change a lightbulb anyway?

I don't know. But half of them would be telling the other half not to change it.

Loooong before my time but Glenn Miller's "American Patrol" is a favorite of mine. I quite like big band music. The Inkspots were great too.
