    I remember when I was in about the sixth grade, walking through the school cafeteria, I saw a poster advertising the Elvis Presley Fan Club; as I read it, I wondered, "Who the hell is Elvis Presley?"

    People still listen to music today?
    Coulda fooled me.
    Seems that all they want is video and internet.

    Maybe it's because peterman is right .....
    ....most music today sucks.
    I think it's because most people today suck.
    Buncha uptight news-watching fuggers.

    Back then when a school served mammoth lunches they meant it literally.

    When I was a teen ager and was so angry and people disliking our music I vowed never to be like them and dismiss music just because I didn't "get it", but I gotta say music now really does suck.

    I am back to listening to two classic country CDs with tunes from the late 50s and early 60s. At least I can think back to being a young kid hanging out in a dive bar or three with Uncle Pecker. I can still smell the stale beer/puke imbedded in the floor and rank cigarette smoke. :1drink

    Maybe it's the dementia setting in, but though my music-listening history started before the advent of Rock and Roll, I still find new music that I like.

    Certainly not all of it, or maybe even most of it, but some.

    Doo-Wop to Hip Hop; the street corner singers of Harlem & Philly.
    Everyone could have a sound & it had that simplicity .
    Out our way, pimply faced kids learning three chords on cheap electric guitars, cranking out some great stuff; locally "Louie-Louie" embodied the time, versions by the Kingsmen, Paul Revere & the Raiders, the Sonics.

    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/7NReNnxaL_0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    We that grew up in the 50s-60s had the corporate Top 40.
    KISN was THE station in PDX in the day & is on my "Tuned-In" App on iPhone "Radio".
    Tom Murphy & Pat Pattee are still spinning the great ones from when we cruised Broadway & the "KISN Corner" across from what is now Powell's Books.

    The day that music died...Seems like we all may have a date that music lost its message for us.
    Thanks to Pandora we can set the push button for Doo-Wop, Hip Hop, Punk Rock, Johnny Cash or Football Game Marching Band Music.

    Just remembering it is all about Rock 'n Roll and its descendent forms. Just turn it UP...!

    Prolonging addle-esence through the 80's was easy.

    The 90s, moving away but still fun...

    I know it's only Rock n Roll but I like it... :1drink

    The first time I heard of the Kingsmen was when I saw them performing at a supermarket grand opening in Seaside. :D

    I don't think it is quite that bad. If you were to back and look at Top 40 playlists from the 50's through the 70's you would see a lot of crap. Is Miley really worse than Debbie Boone?

    Yeah, I borrowed my wife's car with satellite radio and listened to oldie stations, both rock and country and there were a lot of crap songs to be had. I am sure that there is some good new music, but I seldom hear it.

    And then when you first heard him you were probably surprised to find out he wasn't black. :evil

    No videos for me right now while killing time at work. I'll get back to ya's.

    Here's something from the 80s you won't find on a chart with the rest of the drivel that came out in that era.

    True, new music mostly sucks. But if you dig, the good shit's there.

    And one for the road. :D :beer

    Yes, Stevie Ray <strike> is </strike> was cool.

    I had not heard of The Heavy, but though I probably wouldn't turn them up, I neither would I turn them off.

    And of course, you don't get credit for this one. The only person I ever met that said they didn't like Ray Charles was #94. But, he didn't like anybody but Luke the Drifter. :D
