    Back when you had to have some talent to make it in music.

    Every generation's complaint about the next one :D
     
  6. Sometimes I wonder what my generation will complain about the younger generation when we're middle aged :p

    When autotune and lipsyncing are par for the course, there's a reason to complain. :)

    Yeah, if that had been the case for all music I'd have complained too, but it's a little bit like saying that there's no good fantasy released these days and then only having read 50 Shades. There's tons of great music being released today, but it often doesn't make it into the mainstream because there's a difference between "quality music" and "making money off of artists"

    Finding good music you'll enjoy is definitely possible, it just requires a bit more work than turning on the radio.

    She posted a George Michael song. An artist that was a successful, mainstream pop star. Thus that is the context in which my comment was made. ;)

    I have over 20K songs on my hard drive. I'm not lacking when it comes to good music.

    Newish artist I like (can't say as much for the guy who filmed himself dancing to it):

    Also like these guys. Of course, I was listening to them before anyone ever heard of them, and now every listens to them. Bastards :)

    But I can console myself with the fact that no one else listens to Peste Noire. Great band.

    Fair point.Let's leave it at that before it gets serious. :p

    EDIT: I'd argue that there's probably good quality pop music made today as well, but I'm way too out of touch with that kind of thing to actually back it up.

    And then there's this. I mainly listen to electronic music, but here's one of the exceptions. Canadian folk-rock (?) singer that I stumbled upon mostly by accident. Somehow her music has come to be influence both of my anfylk stories. The feel/mood of the songs is something I want to try and reproduce in the stories.

    I'm listening to Phil Collins. Guess you could say it's 80s week, since that's all I've listened to while writing for the past several days:
