Music today vs Music yesterday

How do you feel about music today compared to the music of the past? I used to hate listening to the radio because there was just so much offensive music and the same kinds playing over and over. That was like around the 1990s when I was younger. Now I like listening to the radio can there is more variety and I can find new songs that catch my attention and interest me. I'm glad they stepped away from the boy pop bands, bubblegum teenage girl pop, all about gangs rap, and the same repetitive punk rock bands. Now there are artists like Snow Patrol, hellogoodbye, Kanye West, and many more.

Good music transcends time. Sometimes I listen to the Beatles or Led Zeppelin and get blown away by the strength of their songwriting. Even U2 has a handful of songs that can be considered timeless. Decades from now, future generations of listeners will consider Coldplay, Kanye West and Radiohead as fresh as it is today.

I taught my kids that just because it went out of style by radio standards, doesn't mean it's no good. I still listen to van halen and ginuwine but I also like akon and nickelback.

That's a great way to help your kids have a more open mind to things that are popular now and then.

I don't name "music" what we listen to the radio. Sometimes it is nice but it so commercial that we don't remenber it the year after: who can say to me which song was success ot summer 2005? nobody... On the other hand, everyone knows U2, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd... anybody can quote one of their songs

Thanks for commenting. Maybe after the music of today becomes a little older in around 10-20 years people might remember.

Today's music is dominated by the Black American Artists like rnb, rap etc. While those white are Alternative Rock and Pop. Yesterday's Is Classic and Memoriable So much emotional in midst 80's to 90's.
