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.
... get 'er done, thats right!
Muskrat Love is the good old days?
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.

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?
