My kids had been pestering me for years to take the turntable out of the closet so they could hear a record so recently I did and dug out my record collection. I would put one one and go sit to listen and all I heard is "I don't like this song, how can we skip?" "I want to hear this band now" "I gotta pee, can you pause it?"

I remembered LPs as being a relaxing 20+ minutes where you didn't have to do anything. It was weird seeing how much music listening has changed when it was all thrown back into my face.

Pfftt fark no. I was a chick who just moved to a new school in my junior year of highschool. My mom found out all the girls were going together to this NSync concert in Detroit and she thought it would be a great way for me to make friends. All I really learned was who I DID NOT want to be friends with. Surrounded by twatwaffles and I'm in, like, cargo shorts and a Styx shirt going WTF the entire concert. It was sold out! Like fifty thousand screaming fourteen year olds! I walked out of that tour through hell with my ears ringing so loud I could barely hear, which no metal show has ever done to me even when I shoved to the front. *shudder*

And even more since the market has shifted towards digital download instead of CDs.  The kids in HS or maybe college now who grew up with iTunes and whatnot seem to think of music as a track by track thing, you like one or two songs by a band, and you buy those, but you don't get the whole album.  I grew up when CDs were king, if I hear a song I like, I get the whole album, and listen through each album at a time, I don't get the whole 'just get one track' thing.  Just because one bit is getting the radio play doesn't mean it's the only worthwhile thing on the album.

Hey now,  ABBA has been credited by many badass bands, especially other bands from Sweden, for their influence.  Tomas Haake has gone so far as to say they were a large part of what inspired him to play music.  I don't know about you, but I don't want to live in a world without Meshuggah.

/Hey guys. We've got a long night on the bus ahead. I've got an oversized pair of sunglasses and a red pen, and Tomas forgot to put his sticks in the case while we were packing up. Let's get intoxicated and make the funniest goddamn music video ever.

Didn't the music industry start out issuing singles?  It seems that we're going back to where we started - one track to catch interest.  It has some positive aspects: no more filler tracks.  Buy only what you want, not $10-15 for one or two good songs and never listen to the whole album.

On the other hand, some albums had gems that weren't played on air.  Occasionally, the singles were the weaker songs.  The continuous play of a concept album will be gone also. While it's great to chop up an album like The Wall or Operation: Mindcrime into singles, it loses the feel to only have those few songs and none of the other tracks.

I've found it often means "this is the easiest thing on the album to completely digest in one listen, even after we butcher half of it completely off to get it under 3 minutes."  Usually the really good stuff, like the stuff you can listen to for years and never get sick of, takes several listens to start appreciating, which is why it's not on the radio.

2013-09-10 02:21:48 AM  
Growing up on trips I would get what was played on the oldies station (50s-60s) pop/rock. At home a majority of the albums were what we now think of as classic rock and southern rock from the 60s and 70s. I could have done worse. My Dad also took me to see some concerts that were great like Crosby Stills and Nash, Grateful Dead, Skynyrd sans Ronnie of course.

One song ill always stop and listen to if I hear it is Crimson and Clover by Tommy James and the Shondells. I have no idea why I am so fond of that song in particular.
 
2013-09-10 02:23:49 AM  
My parents' music from the 50's was good.
Early 60's saw rock degrade into gimmicks and cheese.
I am not fond of the late 60's hippie stuff but I can acknowledge there was talent.
The early 70's was garbage.
Late 70's you still had some junk in the mainstream but good bands and singers were rising up in all genres.
Good music peaked around 1984 - all forms of rock, rap, punk, pop, etc. even the bad stuff was good.
Around 1990, pop music was shiat but the alternative genres were good and in the early 90s there was still lots of good stuff to be found.
Around the mid-90's music all around went downhill and has been going downhill since and never recovered.

I know there's good radio out there.  I just choose to search for stuff I like on the sources I mentioned earlier.  We're lucky enough to have a purely metal and punk record store in Madison, so when I find something I want I go there and ask about it.  If they don't have what I'm looking for they try to find it and get a copy.

I agree, some of my favorite songs are ones that were never released as singles.  Some albums certainly have some filler, I'll admit, but overall there are usually some gems that never get air play.

I picked up one of my favorite albums ever from a 99 cent CD bin at Circuit City over ten years ago, almost every track is gold.  I'm not sure if any of it ever had big airplay since it was originally released when I was 8, but I'm glad I decided 'what the hell, it's cheap' and picked it up.   House of Freaks - Tantilla.

On one hand you aren't spending $15 to get the one or 2 songs that you liked and wanted while the rest of the CD could suck. On the other hand you run the risk of missing out on some good music that you didn't know about if you only buy a couple of individual tracks.

I grew up on cassettes then cds and now digital. I still have the cassettes and cds in a case logic holder forgotten in a box somewhere. I've ultimately gone digital ala carte but I try to preview an album on youtube or other site and then buy. Hopefully I'm not missing out on anything

I've gone with Xbox Music (horrible name for the service as it really has nothing to do with the Xbox).  I'm sure there are similar services out there, but it basically allows you to download as many tracks or albums as you like from a pretty complete catalog, as long as you keep paying the $10/month.  It also lets you download the music locally to your phone, so I can use it without eating up my data plan when I'm driving around.

I figure it's less than buying a single CD per month, and it gives me as much as I want, so I end up ahead.  Of course, if i ever cancel it I lose everything I have through it, so that's the downside, but for now it works out well.

Born in the early 70's my parents were 37 & 40 years old when I was born. To this day, I think of AM news talk radio and cheesy Italian music when I think of my parents choice of entertainment.

Luckily for me my much older siblings exposed me to contemporary music from the day. I am pretty well rounded now musically and have a good ear. I can't sing or play a damn thing but I can make that tune in a flash!

My dad's taste in music went through various stages, as it does with most people.  I distinctly remember his protest folk music phase.  I never could stand Joan Baez and hated that for a few years he played her records (actual vinyl) all the farking time.  But during that phase he also picked up the Carly Simon No Secrets album.  Which every teenage boy loved, even if he never actually played the album.  GIS it, you'll understand.

Fortunately, he got over that and we did agree on some music.  He liked Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, but not really any of their other work.  He especially loved classical guitar, which I also enjoyed.  He never cared for The Blues, which is my preferred genre.
 
2013-09-10 03:01:36 AM  
When I was barely old enough to remember, Dad used to favorited! a huge set of headphones on my tiny little ears and I got exposed to all kinds of strange stuff that my parents grew up with...from classical to folk, to 50's rock n' roll.

I think I was probably able to thread the reel-to-reel successfully by the time I was 3 or 4, and entertain myself for hours.

Abacus9: Bullshiat. My parents loved Motown, which I mostly despise. They had a couple of decent 45's but other than that, no. Although they actually like a lot of what I listen to, even the newer stuff. There's no accounting for taste, but by most accounts, I have better taste than they do.


If you despise Motown, you're wrong about the "by most accounts" parts. Nttawwt. Power to ya.

So vote Republican?

Also Shrub Sr was POTUS when the Seatle stuff broke back east circa 92.

Motown produced some of the best "getting laid" music of all time.
