    I generally think like most people old music is better. Because it probably is. Commercialization and massive proliferation I guess din't encourage talent from the 60s onwards.


    But listening to some stuff makes you realise how good it actually is.

    like song written by jim morrison, who was no poet, was a jumped up rock star who persistenly chased his good looks and generally good sounds of his band. It's just the raw energy of it amazing

    I am a passenger
    And I ride and I ride
    I ride through the city's backside
    I see the stars come out of the sky
    Yeah, they're bright in a hollow sky
    You know it looks so good tonight
    I am a passenger
    I stay under glass
    I look through my window so bright
    I see the stars come out tonight
    I see the bright and hollow sky
    Over the city's ripped-back sky
    And everything looks good tonight
    Singin' la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la
    Get into the car
    We'll be the passenger
    We'll ride through the city tonight
    See the city's ripped backsides
    We'll see the bright and hollow sky
    We'll see the stars that shine so bright
    The sky was made for us tonight
    Oh, the passenger
    How-how he rides
    Oh, the passenger
    He rides and he rides
    He looks…

    Then the The kinks holly shit. The main singer wanted to stay true english, and he did, and it was very different from the cool rock stars. Autum almunac.

    Jim wrote the poem, not the song. So he's either a brilliant poet because you love the lyrics, or he's a shit poet and Iggy is a genius for turning shit into gold.

    Which is it, unpleasant user captain snufkin

    Music peaked with Hurrian Hymn no.6 imo. Can't abide this modern hipster shit.

    I love Wagner as long as you ignore the rabid antisemitism.

    No such thing- music is music, keep listening to new stuff. Hearing people talk about “my era” of music is a sure sign they’re a narrow minded simpleton and makes me want to drill their ears out. With lump hammer.

    @captain-Snufkin

    Not the best example to make your point with..

    I'll give you the kinks though.

    I find that most people who think that are lazy and/or have lazy ears.

    There's incredible music made every single day.

    Excuse me if I put some cotton wool in my ear
    The music they play on the radio today ain't what I like to hear
    It's all Punk Rock and Heavy Metal, Reggae or worse
    It's Disco and Pop, it's just got to stop, I tell thee it's a curse

    Because...
    Hip Hop is the best
    Rap is the thing
    I'm crazy, for Jay Z
    Bling bling bling

    Hip hop is the one
    We all agree
    So I'll hang, with Wu Tang
    And Notorious B.I.G.

    Hey, hey, hey, don't forget about Dre!

    I had this conversation with someone yesterday. They listed the usual suspects like X-Factor and the charts.
    I told them they should get out more, same as it ever was.

    There was plenty of shit music out there in the 60s/70s/80s.
    It's just that only the decent stuff has made it through to the present day.
    You only need to watch something like the re-runs of TotP from the 80s on BBC4 to see what I mean.

    There is still loads of fantastic new music, same as there has been in every decade since modern music started.

    However, mainstream singles chart music has went completely to shit, almost everything is designed by Scandinavian songwriting teams to a standard formula and lyrical content is utterly vacuous.
    Whereas in the 70s, 80s etc. you had pop music about primal therapy, psychology and politics, now there's no sign of that. It's brainless shit from songwriting factories everywhere.

    Everything after “Road to Tipperary” is utter gash really.
