New music, Old music

RE: New music, Old music
It sucks that I even have to be serious about something like this. Music should be all about having fun, whether it's channeling anger, or laughter, or youthful exuberance.......if your spirit is dancing (or moshing) along to the music, all is right with the world. But a lot of people want to make things complicated, so people like me have to step in and set things straight.

I don't even know if I've ever heard any music written this century.

One of mom's neighbors did give me a box of albums yesterday though. A couple of Janis Joplin albums, several Beatles, some assorted other stuff from the 70's and a bunch of Todd Rundgren.

Well, no.  Sometimes mediocre music gets preserved, usually on the playlists of classic rock stations, but the good stuff has no expiry date.  I can listen to 1963 Beatles tunes and they still sound fresh to me.

And Bach, Mozart, Beethoven et al. are effectively immortal.   Worship

ETA: After reading posts 12 and 13, I have not one but two earworms duelling in my brain. That's the problem with having a phonographic memory: A line or two of song lyrics, and I can actually hear the recording in my head. Even if I don't want to...

Classical music is definitely good, but also boring.

Go see the 1812 Overture. If you start to nod off, you’ll almost certainly be awoken by the cannon fire. And here’s a picture I took of an actual mortar firing during the last minute of the piece at Ravinia two years ago:

I mean.......i love Metallica as much as anyone else, but those guys should be flipping burgers. They literally have not made ONE good song since the 80's.

Millionaires don't flip burgers, or bake bread, at least not for money.

Old music remains relevant because it's excellent and timeless and new audiences discover it.  Novelty crap fades, both old and new.  For new music to reach "classic" status, it needs to be as good as old music.  There's no mystery there.

They need to retire. They're taking marketing resources away from up and coming acts. All of those old bands are doing that.

Nope, the free market is calling the shots, not the band(s).
