What are your favorite songs/videos that could reach the new generations?

POST THE YOUTUBE VIDEO HERE!!!!!!!!!!



This post is about bridging the gap....

I recently watched an episode of South Park for the first time that made me have a "duh" moment.....

I'm old enough now.....

Not old enough to swear off all new music, but old enough to just shun other music as "crap". No offense intended to those who listen to Country music, but this was a genre I exclusively lumped that music into 10-15 years ago. (Since then, I've come to love some Country music)


Here's the first clip...




Maybe it's because I'm 32, but Randy is my favorite character from South Park. He's not in every episode, but he's even more juvenile than the perpetual 4th graders are when the episode centers around him.

It's obvious that he HATES this TweenWave music, but he'll never give his wife the satisfaction of telling her that she's right, and he even goes on to start a new band "Steamy Ray Vaughn", where he spends most of his time on the mic crapping his pants (because that's all he hears when he listens to TweenWave, just like his wife who admits she hates it).


But their kid Stan has the real problem. Although he turned 10 and hears nothing but "crap" when listening to TweenWave, the classic music still sounds like crap to him....



He's diagnosed a cynical asshole....

(I love Bob Dylan, but this video made me just about shit my own pants in laughter!)






There has to be some people who speak this bilingual language for sure????

I LOVE a lot of classic rock today that was before my time, and a lot of it I glomed onto without any parents or other role models involved. I love a lot of music before my time, of my time and there are a lot of songs now that I'm 32 that I still like, although I know I'm not as invested in new music as I was....



C'mon people. If you grew up when I did.... Jr High in the early 90's especially, everyone from any angle is going to be dogging on you that your generation left no legacy behind....


To that false allegation, I'd love to submit "Paperboy's Ditty" as my first of many reasons why what average mid-ninety's youths listened to is not completely recyclable.





I don't have any kids, but I don't think it's that old now that if I was able to sing it karaoke today that my kid's would be embarrassed.

If they were embarrassed, I'd tell them to eat a until they could do it better than I could.



Nothing wrong with Paperboy.....

Who do you like?

Other songs to think about:

Boys II Men: Mowtown Philly:



Shanice: I Love Your Smile:



PM Dawn: I'd Die Without You:



Boys II Men: End of the Road:



Sophie B Hawkins: Damn I Wish I was Your Lover



I know the last one is a little risque, but not 1 1/10 of the degrading stuff your daughters listen to at 11 years today when you're not listening....

It just dawned on me that all of those songs were happy, even the ones with undetermined outomes....

If you've got an emo kid, he might want something more definately not happy, even if it has a happy ring to it.


This one is one of my favorites from the 80's, although, admitedly it was before my time and I didn't hear it until the mid-nineties, much after hearing David Bowie's Major Tom.



To many it may seem negative, but I think it's a worthy possible end for any person who gave their life for their country. To die in desert hell or to die in the name of space exploration????

How many people have ever stepped on a foreign soil? An alien soil?

Many will probably have to die before that becomes a reality and we can terraform other planets....

Who better to send than the "maybe smart" people who want to make a difference?



You know the joke from the early 80's about that nameless teacher....

Did you know she had blue eyes?

One blew this way, one blew that way.......



I feel I'd be ideal to do it if they were taking proles. No family relying on me. No belief in god one way or another, no financial gain or loss that government couldn't equalize when i came back.

If anyone has seen Sam Rockwell's role in "Moon", that role would be my ideal job until I found out I was a clone that was XXXXXXXX XX XXX (Blocked out for spoilers).

It's really an awesome movie, and i'd hate to ruin it for you....

Mah kid and I both really love Bob Seger's "Old Time Rock N Roll" First time I heard it was on the school bus when I was six, loved it ever since

There's a ton more, but I'm not awake yet.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


There's great music from all decades, and then there's a lot of crap in all decades too.

I'm twice your age, 6String, so I grew up listening to Elvis and Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry and Roy Orbison. I lived through the folk/hootenanny phase of the late '50s/early '60s, which morphed into the new folk/rock of Bob Dylan and Phil Ochs and The Birds and Buffalo Springfield. Then there was the British invasion. The usual question in those days was "The Beatles or The Stones?" and my reply was usually "The Animals and The Kinks" instead.

Then came the super groups, Cream and Blind Faith, Led Zeppelin and Emerson, Lake and Palmer, King Crimson and Pink Floyd. The late '70s did suffer due to Disco, but music bounced back big in the '80s with Dire Straits, The Cars, REM, The Pretenders, The Police, The Talking Heads, etc. The '90s saw grunge bands like Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, etc.

I too don't care that much for traditional country music, at least not what is being promoted by Nashville and the major labels, but I have several favorites that skirt that genre and mix it with rock and blues. Check out Steve Earle, and later his son Justin Townes Earle. There's also Todd Snider, The Old 97s, Yarn, Susan Tedeschi and Lucinda Williams.

I love Bob Dylan, but he's just my second favorite solo performer, number one being the late Phil Ochs. Since 1968 my favorite group has been The Band, and I don't see that changing any time soon.

Hey Wish,

OTRNR is a jam!

I really liked Seger's song that was later the theme song to that pre-Dawson's Creek drama with that Savage kid in it. Good times :)

Loved Roy in the Traveling Wilburys, with a young Tom Petty.



Bunch of other old guys in that group that I know I know from somewhere, but any pictures I saw of them weren't done justice by the wrinkle lines in that song. lol....

Bob Dylan and The Byrds rock.

Don't know much about The Kinks, but I always liked House of the Rising Sun by the Animals.

If we're going truly old school here, you might remember this gem from 1965...



AWESOME!!!!!!

Dire Straits, The Cars, REM, The Pretenders, The Police, The Talking Heads, etc. The '90s saw grunge bands like Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, etc...... Man.... what an awesome list of talent. I have songs by every single one of them on my iPod knock-off

Besides Roy Orbison and Tom Petty, the Traveling Wilburys were Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Jeff Lynne (from Electric Light Orchestra). After Orbison died they were going to add Del Shannon ("My Little Runaway") to the group, but then he died before they were able to record anything with him.

RIP, Roy and George (and anyone else in the TW).

My Little Runaway was awesome too!



RIP to Del as well ;)



ELO was pretty damn cool too.




I'd feel embarrassed for not knowing this, but it can't be as bad as the London Olympic committee inviting all the members of "The Who" to perform in the opening ceremony. Including, Keith Moon, who has been dead for 34 years.

mer-to-play-ceremony-147506495.html


This quote, BTW, is priceless....

"I emailed back saying Keith now resides in Golders Green crematorium, having lived up to The Who's anthemic line 'I hope I die before I get old,'" said The Who manager Bill Curbishley. "If they have a round table, some glasses and candles, we might contact him."

I'm sure this was all just a rookie(s) mistake. Likely a bunch of "kids" younger than me running the company now, with no oversight from anyone who knows better (mentors) that give two shits about their rich ass futures, because anyone old enough to know how this idiotic action would pan out in the media is so afraid of being laid off tomorrow that they just put their collective heads in the sand and let the chips fall.

There were undoubtedly a plethora of "old fogies" lower down the food chain that could have prevented this international embarrassment, but I bet they're all making love to their wives tonight at a pace they haven't for years after being so invigorated at having played a part of giving the new, younger, management the "figurative" ass raping of their lives. lol

I tip my hats to all of you guys. Good for you for staying silent long enough to embarrass whatever college graduate douche-bag corporate shills that "higher education" has produced, and exposed them for the dumb ass idiots they really are.

Apologies are the only thing I'm really good at now...
