Yeah he seems to have disappeared. Just in time for him to avoid listening to the songs I asked him to listen to. ;)

EDIT: No I meant this guy:

Hasn't been here since February. Said he was going to be back in Sweden after Valentine's Day. Maybe his return just got delayed?

The amount of blind nostalgia in some of these posts is just nauseating.

No you did not grow up during the best era of popular music, please don't inflict your generation on the rest of us who didn't, it just makes you seem sad and out of touch.
And please stop ignoring all the awful music that surrounded all these 'classics' you love.

You know who sold the most singles in the UK in 1967?
The Beatles , Nope
The Stones, Nope
The Kinks, The Who, Hendrix, Cream, The Doors ..... not even close.

It was Engelbert Humperdinck

I rest my case.

It's long past due to stop complaining and comparing decades of Pop that are worlds apart. A long time back in The 80's as a listener to American Top 40 as a kid I though that The 60's was this great wonderland of music until I heard several songs that went to #1 in a special song spotlight segment. Right there and then, before all of my research, I found out the hard way that there is crap no matter what era you look in, and it was not just the fabled time when Rock and Roll was not in fashion from 59 to 63. Continued proof was given to me as a listener to listening to the legendary Detroit area 1960's-1972 WKNR Top 40 charts on an Oldies station played on Sunday mornings that had 1 good song for every 3-4 pieces of garbage, with the bad song ratio growing by 1970. That's education!

The default guilty pleasure of Pop's Past for modern listeners was that there was more instrumentation as compared to the Hyper Corporate Digital/Synth/Pro Tools stuff going on now, but I'm sure people who wished to be back in time and lived in their chosen year would possibly be sick of the crap of that particular era after being exposed to it quick, especially if they're the Alternative type and saw who liked the music then.

Ah, I see.

Well then I hope he was quietly checking out the songs I recommended!

Too true. I think people get too wrapped up in their nostalgia. There has been horrible pop music in every.single.decade.

Glad to hear that. So far I've converted Taxman into a Tame Impala fan. You're my next victim. :bringit:
