Forget the dumb rating and read the actual comment.
Gonna have to side with AK'z here. There's no way you could have heard all of 60s music to gauge the fact that you totally despise every last bit of it. You don't bother to say "what I've heard of 60s music, I haven't liked" you outright say that you hate every last bit of it. I think you're exaggerating.
That's the type of opinion that people can do without. You listen to a few songs off the "60s radio" on Spotify, spending about 10 minutes and hating all of it in that period of time.
If you are happy with your judgement, don't bring it into this arguement because you know full well it's worthless.
By your logic, no one can ever hate any genre because it's a broad generalization as well. You couldn't say you don't like rap because there might be rap out there that you actually like.
If you the line above is wrong, then you should understand that I don't enjoy the genres from the 60's and therefore I don't like music from the 60's.
It's funny though. All the music we deem shit is the music that's praised by the majority of this generation. We think they're insane for liking in, when in retrospect we're the different and rebellious ones who dislike it.
There is music for all of us. Everyone is different.
Learn to right songs with the right hook or chord and you can make yourself millions.
I think they researched 12 song structures/hooks that would almost guarantee that a song would be a hit. Some documentary with Sting in it.
It doesn't have to be specific to each person, because we all work the same.
I shouldn't have posted here because I am a total asshole when it comes to music .
I know there are opinions and everything, I understand . I'm not trying to say that you shouldn't listen to a certain genre of music because I think it's complete garbage or that 60's music is far superior to any other decade of music there is .
There's just something that feels a lot more live about the music from then and I'm not just talking about the beatles or led zeppelin or pink floyd . I just have a strong connection to a small number of artists/groups from that specific time that changed the way I thought about my instruments . . so I think insanely highly about them and they all happen to fit in around the same time .
Of course there are groups from the eighties that I think are great and even some from the nineties but all I'm saying is, and yeah, I'm probably wrong, is that I have been showed a lot of modern music and nothing has struck me as much as those groups from the 60's have .
I dig Radiohead . . J Dilla has always been held in high regard (I actually got a chance to speak to his mother on the phone after I called in to 88.9 in Boston) and there are some others that I've enjoyed .
I don't know, I am somewhat of an elitist asshole but I just think most of what I hear today doesn't cut it . Sounds like lazy people with ideas , over-playing , drowned in reverb , too much noize, overproducing, trying to be epic . . whatever, I'm an asshole , I'm glad you guys disagree with me, shows I'm doing something right .
The reason why I talk so much is because I feel like I've been exposed to the truth, the pinnacle of music . . so I get lost for words and I end up saying a lot .
unless you mean the music.
Only one of them has a real instrument I have, the rest are fiddling with pre-recorded sounds and piecing them together. Not too complex.
No midi. Just audacity.
It's all I need really.
which one are you talking about too?
I personally think if you like prog, you should be able to enjoy psych rock from the 60s, those were years when styles kind of mashed into each other.
Also the charts back then must have been really varied.
the charts right now are really varied and i'd probably say even more than before
within recent memory, rap, progressive house, indie rock, electropop, and shit even hard rock have been on the top 10 charts
I think nowadays the charts can be divided into categories,
club music, hiphop/rnb, pop rock and a few extras if you're lucky.
I was amazed that Cohen and Tom Waits got into the top 10 here, it's good when that happens.
Anything different to the usual categories is nice to see.
A lot of eccentric things in the 70s/80s managed to break into the charts.
emmies, or the fact that the billboard consists of Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Adele, Whitney Houston, etc.
