Chip2447 Is modern music shite? (112* d) RE: Is modern music shite? 14 Dec 03

You say po tate o, I say poh tato. One persons trash is another's treasure. Yada yada yada...

    To the musical purists out there everything but their genre's of choice is shit. To the eclectic musical souls there is good music in all genre's. Its all a matter of individual tastes, personally, I cant stand about 98% of Bob Dylan. That's me. It's not shit by any definition of the word, he's a very talented singer songwriter. I just dont like the presentation.

    I'm a child of those late sixties and early seventies as well, and I gave my parents ROCK and ROLL headaches. Disco sucked, big band was hokey, country was for the old farts and classical was for cartoons. My how the things change with time. Don't pooh pooh one type of music because you dont like it or dont understand it. Embrace it all as MUSIC and not as pidgeonholed labels. Listen to what you like, don't be afraid to venture out of your mindset and experiment with "NEW" stuff.

    Yes, there is a lot of crap out there, but as others have said, the shit is consistant across the spectrum of musical genre's, but there are real gems out there as well. It's our duty to find them, pass them along (sounds like the folk process at work)and keep them alive.
