strange music

I noticed something weird out of the blue yesterday – I like old music.   I don’t mean classical music, which I like as wel, but I’m really talking about popular on-the-radio my-parents-saw-them-when-they-weren’t-nostalgia-acts pop and rock music.  I like some newer stuff, and I’m always catching a new song here and there, but it’s kinda freaking me out that 75% of the music I really like was recorded from 1965 – 1984. 

I am not sure what this says about me, but I’ll bet a lot of people out there have some really good theories.

    Because that’s when the best music was made – just ask 97Rock. Then again, I fall into the category of having seen and heard the groups before they were nostalgia acts.

  2. Red Says:

    Actually, Becky, I can’t stand 97 Rock. I think that the majority of what I listen to is the stuff you’d only hear there on a deep tracks marathon or something. Of course, I haven’t listened to 97 Rock regularly in about 5 years…have they changed at all? They didn’t seem to in the 10 years before that.

  3. Becky Says:

    Truthfully, when I turn on the radio and plan to leave it on one station for awhile I prefer the Lake 107 for exactly that reason – deeper tracks and more variety. 97 Rock has been playing the same stuff forever (that was sort of a snide remark originally on my part). I got sick of the greatest hits the first time around.

  4. Becky Says:

    107 at least used to have a greater variety. Then again most of my radio listening occurs in the car, bouncing from station to station.

    97 Rock wouldn’t be bad if they would just SHUT THE HELL UP AND PLAY SOMETHING DIFFERENT ON OCCASION! I try to catch 91.3 when I can but they’re a pretty week signal. Right now I’m kinda stuck on Pink Martini (Lounge) and DJ Tiesto (Electronica) But I can get real excited if I hear Rarer Earth or Uriah Heep
