Mentioning Milry Cirus instead of Foster the People, or Justin Bieber instead of Daughter is just plain silly. In fact, my kid and I have identical taste in music.

Yeah, but look who we remember from the past. Big, widely popular, catchy music.

Foster the People is great, but most Miley fans would look at you confused. "is that a band or a charity?"

Sorry man, I'd love it if bands that actually had talent get remembered, but that's not how our culture works. I hate to say it, but someday people will look back and reminisce while listening to One Direction. Hell, I know people that feel that way about New Kids On The Block... lots.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

RE: Back in my day
Yeah, but there's always gonna be people who reminisce about shitty music like that. There's also people who feel that way about good music. The Beatles music endures because it's good, not because it's catchy.

Remember that Miley fans will mature and listen to other music too. They may not remember music from their Miley stage, but that's also not the only exposure they'll have. Great musicians tend to stick around for a longer time, so they tend to influence more people. In general, Miley Cirus will be remembered the same way NKOTB are....as an amusing, if not annoying trend.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

They're not remembering the music, they're remembering their youth.

RE: Back in my day
Went outside to take a break yesterday and watched a tall, thin black guy get out of a car and fluff up a truly impressive afro...I swear I heard disco music playing as he strutted down the sidewalk. I haven't see a 'fro like that in years! It was huge! And perfectly round. Smile

I hope I'm not around to hear this.

Yeah, but it's the same thing with many other songs, too! The comedian Nick Swanson brought it up in one of his skits! Your grandparents listened to some pretty tame stuff compared to today's music!

I don't think I'll ever have grankids, but could you imagine the look on their faces walking in to Papaw Guley's, and catching him groovin to som Lil' John? Blink

Kanye Gasp Weeping 'nuff said.

We don't want to be remembered for that.

RE: Back in my day
Taylor Swift is another one. Geesh. Why is she even a star? Am I missing something? She's headed into the 'back in my day" category with puzzled looks from future generations.

Huh

And her face looks like she's hanging upside down or something.

I cannot like this often enough...I simply don't get it where Taylor Swift is concerned.

There will always be real music. You are simply looking in the wrong place. You are under the impression pop music was always "real" music. Sure it was real pop music. Don't allow your ignorance of music to put down music as a whole.

Pop music is a product of advertising agencies. The 3 1/2 minute pop song was invented because it is the perfect length for which to place advertising between.

You have been coerced into liking the music you do by executives.
