Question How Old is too Old for a Song?

50s? 60s? 70s? 80? 90?

or even 00?

I read a comment on youtube today, saying :"70s' music never get old", some guy posted on a video "Original Kung Fu Lighting". Most of people including me think this song is new in the cartoon movie "Kung Fu Panda", but we all are dead wrong. It was 70s' work. But it is still so sharp!

So it rang my bell. for songs or music, how old is too old?

It is not easy to hear good "old" music or songs from today's radio, they are playing such many new but ugly songs, almost. They would rather choose "new and bad" than "old but good", enh?

Yes, definitely. So many one hit wonders I hear on the radio now.
I'm not much of a radio guy, just my computer, my CD's and my 80gb Zune

Music's evolution is not very linear. I mean, one would think that music is constantly improving or degrading, where rather it obviously does levels of both in various ways over time.

Since music does not degrade in quality, only changes in tone, a good song is a good song, no matter when it came out. Those who don't appreciate this are the people who listen to only new music, and are fooled by the fact a lot of it is obviously rehash.

Most top 40 hype-ish music gets old really fast.
I listen to recordings ranging from the 40's to today.
