What does this mean? That women like the Fall because there's been a few women as members of the group over their 40 year history?

Yeah you know how the womenfolk always google the lineup of whatever they listen to before deciding how they feel about it.

I'm gonna post here because I always feel weird about loving so much of the music that was made before I was born. And also because I have a thing about raising the dead. Topics.

I very well know what I like and I'll take Infected Mushroom over James Taylor (OR Taylor Swift) any day of the week

Old or New is all about taste and that's it. For example I really love a song or two by Uriah Heep and Deep Purple but whenever James Taylor comes up on a 60s or 70s channel I immediately get the withdrawal shakes . Gah.

I grew up listening to my Dad's HUGE FANTASTIC collection of old albums and stuff. But then Blondie was one of the first singers that got me to looking retro.

And then Alvin Lee. One day somewhere around 2012 my older sweetie showed me a youtube clip of Ten Years After at Woodstock. OH. MY. GOD. I freaked out. Alvin was a total MONSTER on guitar and vocals.

One of my "top 10 of all time" lists includes the out of this world harmony of Crosby Stills and Nash (Wookstock again!) on Suite: Judy Blue Eyes..... JUST EFFING GENIUS, so many movements and that off the chain harmony. LIVE. Unbelievable.

Just the other day I found myself almost mesmerized while listening to the Beach Boys harmony in the song Don't Worry Baby. But really just a mild example of Brian Wilson's genius. Good Vibrations! And my all time favorite 60s Girl Group choon by Ronnie Spector and friends Be My Baby, such a simple song but Ronnie's voice (and her presence and everything) is Killer.

................. So did I just talk myself into agreeing that music is just not what it used to be?...........

But then (I ask myself) how about....



and



and



and ... ummm...





So anyway. All of those songs are "newer" right? NOT 60s or 70s or heavenly 80s. But all of them are over 10 years old. The thing is I just don't know any of the 'new' musicians/groups because I gave up trying to listen to them several years ago.

So I think I'm kind of stuck. No I am Definitely stuck in the past because 97% of the new stuff is either soggy milquetoast or just stupid.
