    A friend from high school just sent this to me, not that I have kids but have to agree! With all of the music threads on here, I thought I'd share...

    Sadly, these days they're probably just listening to it "ironically".

    We were just at an Adam Ant concert Thursday night. Ok, laugh, but back in the day, who thought he'd still be around, not only touring but releasing new music? Granted, he ain't Zepplin or The Beatles but I just don't see Justin Beiber touring 20 years from now or anyone caring. Granted, I feel that way about MOST new music, I thought this card was funny ;)

    I had a reality check today when Prince and Madonna songs were on the "oldies" station! Oldies to me is 50’s doo-wop, Motown, all the great songs from the 60’s and 70`s my parents love. I'm NOT ready for my 80’s music to be oldies :eek:

    That is exactly the question my sons would ask. And Rush (the good Rush, not the bad Rush).

    Yeah but in the sixties and seventies our parents all thought we were headed to a life of debauchery and worthlessness listening to that Beatles and Rolling Stones stuff. ;lol

    They would have preferred Glenn Miller on our iPods.

    My mom and dad both HATED and still HATE The Beatles. My dad graduated 1967, my mom 1969 they say The Beatles were teeny bopper music. So, low and behold, I'm a HUGE Beatles fan. My room was downstairs as a kid, when I'd get po'd, I'd go in my room and blare The White Album. My mom would bang on the floor (my ceiling) with a mop handle screaming for me to "turn that racket off". Oh, those teenage memories ;)

    I'm going to ignore you even suggest that one :)


    Yes, but I'm sure there is a line to do at this point!


    what's "bad" Rush?

    I saw Adam Ant so long ago that INXS was the warmup act. That must have been 30 years ago.

    I suspect he's referring to these two, but I don't know which is good or bad... I like them both!

    My #2 son added his 2 cents - Jimmy Hendrix::-)

    My Mom loved "Nights in White Satin" Moody Blues - My eldest daughter danced a solo on pointe to that song the year after her Gram passed away.

    Edit: While not on their ipods, they recognize Journey since they know Mom & Dad's dance at their wedding was "Open Arms". The Armagaddon soundtrack was a favorite especially Aerosmith with "Don't want to miss a thing". Soundtrack from Forrest Gump gets raves too:cool:

    Days of Future Passed album was a lullaby for us as kids, my mom's a fan too. Even today, if I'm having a night where I can't sleep, I'll pop in that CD and go right out ;)

    Rush...any band 30 yrs old is gonna have a few duds, I liked Presto '89.
    My band covers Rick Astley...anyone who wants to hate on Rick is gonna have to dance battle me!

    Excellent. My son (15) enjoys the Ramones when we're on road trips. I wasn't into the Ramones in my early teen years (when they were firstout); I thought that they were sort of dumb- but then I (soon) realized that they were _brilliantly_ dumb, and became a life-long fan.
