I'm out there and over the hill. At 54 I recently learned I'll be a grandfather soon. And last night the Music at the Grammys made no sense to me. Other than the tribute to Levon, I didn't get any of it. I'm trying but I just can't get out of the 70's - 80's with my tunes.
Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun. But Mama, that's where the fun is.
Same here. I'm only 37 but give me the old stuff any day!

Lol, I know the feeling. I am 65 and cannot, nor do I want to, grasp the newer music. I am still "Lost in the 60's"
Your not old brother. I'm 45 and the 70's- 80's music will always be the best! Congrats you old fart!(g)
When does it happen? LOL I really laughed at myself one day taking my son to school when he was listening to a song on his phone and wanted me to hear a part. I just looked at him and said wow your music...then caught myself and just started laughing.
It really is true. Our own music was the best and our kids music sucks.
Old fart is funny. Reminds me of the saying "he's so old he farts dust". Not there yet. I can still hang.
Your not old and yes the 70's and 80's music is the best. Im 49 soon to be 50. I have been a Grandfather for 5 years now. You will love it. Having Grandkids is the best.
The music that one likes is dependent on the year he or she was born. The great majority of people like the music that was popular when they were teenagers and like it best until dirt is thrown in their face. I was born in late 1945 and my favorite music is the early rock and roll of the late fifties and the sixties. IMO there is none better. My father thinks the same of the big band era music and my kids, born in the early seventies, like the music of the eighties. It's only natural and its been that way forever.
I am 54 and like music from every generation. How you cannot relate to a song by FUN is what is hard to comprehend. And Adele is as good as any generation ever. It helps to open your mind to new things. Now how many down votes can I accumulate? Hopefully some did like KC's rendition of Carole King
I'm 23 and I agree with y'all. Maybe its because I was raised on classic rock but I still struggle to find new, good music these days
I do like Adele. Sorry but I had not heard of Fun until last night. My XM radio is locked into classic vinyl and sports talk. My iTunes is full of Buffet, Bob Segar, the Stones, Allman Brothers and other classic rock. I have some Motown, Barry White, Randy Travis and I know every word to Super Freak. I just didn't get the music last night and I tried.
+1 from me. I want to add to my playlist. Don't give up on this old fart.

When they show who is performing at the Grammys now I'm lucky if I recognize one of the names. I don't get the new music either and really have no desire to, I will stick with the 70's and 80's stations on XM.
I just think back in the day. Most of the bands/performers did their own thing more. Now all these people are getting told what they must do to appeal to this generation. I would hate to be an artist these days.
I mean in the old days. We had Star Search that was seen on Sat. or Sunday nights. Now you got American Idol, X-Factor, The Voice etc. & just who do you think control's these people who win these shows? Yep the company/producers. I would be pissed if I wanted to sing rock. & they told me I would be better at country & vice versa. These people can make you sell out before you even realize what's happening.
50 here and gonna be a grand dad my nephew who is 25 told me he could not believe how good the music was when I was growing up.Said he liked the 70's music way better than what he grew up with and I could not agree more
I feel your pain! I am 43 and I miss people that actually played instruments. That is long gone, now it's just all sampled and crap like that. Then you have the idol show which is nothing but karaoke on a grand scale, that's it! I guess I am just old, but I am glad I didn't have to listen to this crap growing up!

Most of the new music is terrible so my Sirius stays on Stern and College Sports 91, however, Mumford and Sons has some really great music if you are in to that style. I believe they won the Grammy last night for Best Album.
I'm 63 and a motown kinda gal...hahaha...although I do like good music with a dance beat, good voice or great harmony
Adam Lambert could have been as good as Queen....but he does manufactured music
I am lucky as well that my son brings me new music all the time. There is a lot out there like always you just don't hear it on the radio. Some great songwriters out there
Any of ya'll listen to John Prine?
I know who John Prine is. My ex is a fan.
I'm 51 and my Music is the music of the 70's, too. There is a new song every now and then that I like, but there is nothing like the music I grew up on.
BTW, MyTide... congrats. I hear being a grandparent is the greatest. :)
you guys are the first in my lifetime that I EVER heard anyone say the 80's music is among the best ever. 60-70's were damn good and even the 90's rocked good but 80's were laughable made music (G). For the record, I havent watched the Grammys in 10 years because Im not a music awards show fan.

57 here and I don't even listen to music from the '80s. It's all 60s and 70s. But I do have Pitbull on my iPod.
