It's not that I'm old
Your music really does suck

It seems to have changed for me about the year 2000 or so.

Am I missing something? I thought I could like John Mayer. I bought Continuum, but gave it away because it is just too perfect. It needs some texture to it, some soul. Add a dash of Tracy Chapman maybe.

The only fairly recent popular song that I liked was Bad Day by Daniel Powter.

So, am I getting old or is popular music really just not so good right now?

Question #2: Who likes to listen to Justin Timberlake?

Pop music has always sucked. Popular music has always been an embarrassment. Why didn't the Velvet Underground sell a ton of records when they first came out? Or the Stooges and MC5? Captain & Tennille Muskrat Love is the good old days?

That's what I meant. Well said.

Daytime Radio 1 has always been poor - Listen to the Zane Lowe show at 7 pm weekdays - it's pretty good, but it will never be as good as the Peel Session.

I have found that a highspeed internet connection and an Ipod to be the best music around.

Listen to the Zane Lowe show

Yep, and Annie Mac and Lottie and Pete Tong and whoever else is good.

With the death of pop radio - no one knows what the 'el to listen to any more. I think this is where Dr Phil would say something profound like, "deal with it people", or "get over it". Pop music is for history and we as a global society will rarely know the communal joy of appreciating songs as a group again. Diversification is assurred. Don't get me wrong, I'm not playing a trump card here - I'm certainly no better. I have 130+ channels on sat radio and my fav station is Blue Collar Comedy channel - especially when Larry the cable guy is on.

... get 'er done, thats right!

>>Why didn't the Velvet Underground sell a ton

Probably because, overall, their music sucked. However, I confess to having at least one Velvet Undergroud album.

"Loaded" is one of the most underrated albums of that era...

Muskrat Love is the good old days?

Way to make a point, martinibuster

communal joy of appreciating songs as a group again

And that's what I really miss, of course. And I will get over it.

At least there's a lot of variety available. I go thru phases.

For example, after listening to Outlaw Country on sat radio lately, I bought 3 CDs: Todd Snider, Shooter Jennings, and Hank Williams lll.

Gotta wholeheartedly concur. Curmudgeonly hindsight tends to selectively remember only the terrific stuff from the good old days and conveniently ignore all that wretched heavy-rotation dross which is always with us, in every epoch, constituting the primary slime up out of which the tiny fraction of genius material floats. Remember 'Undercover Angel'? 'Fly Like the Wind'? Or...'Inna Gadda da Vida?' How about anything by Lionel Ritchie or Celine Dion?

I'm a DJ of a major music station, and I'd rather listen to talk radio about 90% of the time when I'm not on air. I'm given creative control over my playlist so I'm not shackled by a music director, but I can't listen to most of what is played on the radio today.
