It's nice how age doesn't matter when it comes to liking music. I've seen younger people who preferred listening to old songs. I'm not sure if I can say the same with older people's taste, though. Do they like today's music?

They do get a bit critical of contemporary tunes. Being one of them critters, I find a lot of what I hear in commercial contemporary music to be highly contrived in formula. And executed with too much emphasis with electronic aids, (auto tune). But, there's always good music being made. I just doesn't get realized sometimes for decades. I listen at times to a community radio station that plays contemporary music, off the beaten path. Just the other day I looked up a catchy tune from a group in the 80's I'd never heard. Unearthed by this radio station. A Brit band called Orange Juice, and a song called Rip It Up. Just a catchy 80's pop song, nothing heavy.

You never know when and where you'll hear something you like. Just watching casually a YouTube clip of an old movie with a musical background replacing the dialogue I found a tune that struck me of an artist I knew of but hadn't followed for awhile. A collaboration with Ry Cooder and a Cuban artist Manuel Galban, producing some interesting music you simply don't hear on commercial sources.

I'm not that updated with today's music, but forcibly high songs are not appealing. Some musicians increase the pitch to a high level even when it's not necessary. The melody ends up getting ruined.

Yeah, Ry Cooder has made some interesting music over the decades. Count me as a fan.

Here's my take on this: Back in the day, what you heard on the radio is what we now consider the best of those eras and the types of music some kids these days like. In contrast, if you want to find music these days that is of the same caliber, you have to shut off the radio and get out the shovel.

What came through the airwaves 40 years ago, you have to dig for now.

Good stuff is out there, you just have to work to find it.

Does that include new Indie songs? I think they would have a different approach to music since they're not mainstream. They also don't prioritize their music to get sold, which comes to the thought that they'd be more original and free from conforming to the audience's demand.

I absolutely love it when I hear young kids enjoying and singing along to the music I grew up with. I automatically think that their parents are awesome. I too listen to a lot of older "before my time" music. I also listen to a lot of music from today too.
