Just remember, what someone thinks is the best is subjective and is just their opinion. Anyone can post whatever they think is the best music on the best song threads!

Anyone can, indeed. I can also post here that they can do better. That is my opinion. It is not subjective, as I have stated correctly. It is a combination of objective and subjective. Some music is definitely better than other music. Even if I may be wrong about which is better. It is my best perception of the music, not just my "opinion." I really wish people would get beyond this post-modern relativism that anything is as good as anything else. It ain't so.

So I don't need to "remember" what ain't so. People need to "remember" what IS so.

I really love this old music as it tells us a story and has so much meaning as today's music has no meaning what so ever and it really sucks as to why I love the 50s 60s and 70s music it was so meaningful back then wish I could have experience those good old days as I don't care for the music today

Lots of young people agree, the music was better then. Of course in 2010-2012 when I would see these comments, almost everyone would also say, "So much better than Justin Bieber" etc. because he was the biggest pop sensation of that time. I like JB, of course, and some other more-recent music.

People say the same thing about 90s music. That it was better then than now. It is nostalgia talking.

I have witnessed many Millennials be nostalgic about everything to do with 90s culture. I am like that to an extent. Today more than ever seems to be a time to reflect on the past, and that includes being nostalgic about past culture.

What are you nostalgic about?

Something more than grungy noise I would hope. Post some good stuff to be nostalgic about, please, on the proper thread. I know it's not just about music; the 90s was a better time in many ways.

That is interesting that you are nostalgic for the 90s culture as you were only a wee one in the late 90s. I was born in the mid 80s and am not nostalgic for it as i do not remember it.

It is to them and to them that is what matters We should respect the differences, not dismiss them and insult them and those that like what we may not. It is called inclusion. Something us millies are known for. That is true peace. Something apparently boomers were all about in the 2T.

Yes, I was born in the late 90s, but 90s culture is very interesting and I witnessed some of it in the early 2000s. I've been immersed in the same culture so-called "90s kids" have grown up in. Because of  also become nostalgic about a time before I was born though. You probably weren't nostalgic about the 90s like I was because you were older. That would be the equivalent of me being nostalgic about 2010-12.

You are very wrong about that. I barely remember the 80s. It did not impact me at all. But the 90s I am very nostalgic for. It was most of my childhood. 5 to 15.

I thought you meant the 90s, not the 80s. I'm fond of the 2000s because it was most of my childhood as well. 1 to 11.

shit how could i forget to add DBZ!!!!! Dragon ball z and gargoyles. Oh those were the days! Of course they now have dragon ball super out right now. Us 90s kids are watching it and talking about it like crazy. Of course back in the 80s they had dragon ball but we only saw that way later. I never even knew about it till quite recently. I only saw dbz and ignored dbgt as that was so gay. Vegetas daughter was right. His pedomo had to go.

Yes you are and I think i am one of the only foreigners on here. Certainly the only kiwi on here and that would also make me the only foreign millennial. So we both have that disconnect with the people on here. You from when you were born and me due to being a foreigner. Although American millies and kiwi millies did share some of the culture of the time. But by the sounds of it we were more protected here in NZ. I mean some millies here on the forum have mentioned the laws here are rather draconian. Just today i heard an American who came to live here winging about it becoming rather draconian here and mentioning he is going to go live in Los Angeles. Some laws are becoming that way but some of them are merely for protection. But seems some Americans do not see it that way. Those differences do change generations in different countries slightly and it is rather interesting to do the comparisons. Also the earthquakes here did bring out that strong civic side in millies by the way we organized ourselves. I am very grateful to be aware of the theory and see my country through that lens to understand what is actually going on. Anyway i got off track so i will shut up now lol.

It was a very lively and fun time. So optimistic and upbeat. Us millie girls singing Stop by the spice girls when crossing the road and laughing when the cars stopped for us. We certainly turned heads and it amused us to no end! Little did we know we were a new generation and our attitude and behaviour made us quite different. No wonder we received funny looks from people! It would certainly be interesting I think to compare how people saw the era they grew up in and it would be interesting to see how they saw the 90s if they were grown ups. I know I had a fantastic time! So you can imagine my joy that pokemon is back and dragon ball is back. As well as music starting to become more interesting. We need the upbeat culture back. Something optimistic to cling to while we ride the storm of the 4T. I will not say get rid of dark music or diss dark music. I like it myself and it certainly has its place. But we also need something to lift spirits. The world in so many ways is spiraling out of control. We need balance back. The 90s culture .... i just remember i was so much happier back then. Songs made me smile. The tv shows, the games. The culture marketed to us was happier. I do miss that a lot.

On the other hand, I say people ought to know better. That stuff is obvious trash (in my opinion). It is the worse stuff I have ever heard from any time in history, and I know a lot of times in history. That's why I think some of you guys can't really be serious, and why I even might say that that stuff is noise for boise. Of course, we all have our boys sides, and we never really fully grow up and throw out that part of us, so why is that an insult, Tara? "Shake it off," Tara. Stop preaching, and chill out, Miss angry, volatile Scorpio/Pluto young lady Millennial! It really is tiring. And this is not going to be the start of an endless squabble. I've said my piece, and I'm NOT going to change my mind due to insults from you, Tara. Grow up and stop being a boi.

I have an ideal: that we the people need to be more sensitive, gentle, feminine, discerning, interested in beauty, imaginative, open to mystical experience in the arts; and NOT just insist that our music has to be only macho and aggressive or else it's somehow inauthentic. Rubbish, and you ought to know better. The right balance is what I like.


To me, grunge embodied that balance.  The music was aggressive, robust, and there was a madness to it.  Yes, it was sloppy, but the sloppiness added to the emotional power.  Pounding music, guys (with long, flowing romantic hair) screaming, thrashing, throwing themselves into a teeming crowd to be tossed back up again.  Yet, as Mills pointed out on the other thread, the music was often melodic and sensitive, if tinged with cynicism, and they sang songs about Mother Earth, the downtrodden homeless, women trapped in abusive relationships, their own mental labyrinths.  This was masculine virility with intellect, and soul--and directed toward the feminine.  Not in a "oh baby I want to f*ck you" sort of way, like the hard rock bands of the two previous decades, but more towards the mystical feminine--the thoughtful, the sensitive, the vulnerable.  The early 90s seemed to me like a blast of Byronic Romanticism.

From wikipedia:
Quote: Historian and critic Lord Macaulay described the Byronic Hero character as "a man proud, moody, cynical, with defiance on his brow, and misery in his heart, a scorner of his kind, implacable in revenge, yet capable of deep and strong affection".

Sounds a bit like Kurt Cobain to me.  Well, maybe without the "implacable in revenge" part.  Substitute that for perverse sense of humor and self-destructive heroine addiction.  And ratty cardigan sweaters. Smile

I quite disagree, and will leave it at that Smile

Of course again, if you go by what the song is "about" (i.e. the words rather than the music; Byron wrote words too, not music), you may have a point, but a point that is irrelevant to me, because to me the music and sound counts more.

In the 60s, Marshall MacLuhan famously said, "the medium is the message." I pretty much agree. The music, not the words, are what counts the most.

There we go. A fine example of another perception of a genre of music we all see differently. I do not think i like that type of music but it is so interesting to see how others perceive it. It helps us grow to see different opinions on art. I may not like it but i respect it enough to let it be what it wants to be. (peace sign) Peace to grunge. Show us that passion! Yes there is always a reason why something sounds the way it sounds or looks the way it does. Smile

Tomorrow Never Knows is my favorite Beatles song. Watching and listening to this gave me chills and tears. I love the age differences throughout the crowd. Loved this.

The generation gap does not always apply. It's too much money for me, but then, I missed Woodstock and Monterey too.

http://www.mercurynews.com/2016/10/03/de...oldchella/

When the lineup was announced, music fans could hardly believe their eyes.

The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan? Paul McCartney and Neil Young? Pink Floyd mastermind Roger Waters and The Who? All at one festival? Were they serious?

But even though the event is booked for a Southern California desert, the lineup is no mirage.

As Jerry Anderson, a 48-year-old San Jose native who now lives in Oakland, put it, “I don’t think they could put together a more epic lineup. Everyone on the bill is legendary.”

That’s why Anderson and scores of other Bay Area fans are traveling hundreds of miles and, in many cases, spending thousands of dollars to take in the Desert Trip music festival in Southern California’s Coachella Valley.

For them, it’s not just a music festival, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime rock ’n’ roll pilgrimage.

Pat Ireland, 49, says he’s “so pumped” to be bringing his two sons — Johnny, 17, and Maddox, 13. He sees it as a chance to bond over music that bridges the generation gap.

“I’ll pass by their rooms (at home) and my son is listening to Neil Young and I’m like, ‘Wow, that’s pretty cool,’” says the Brentwood resident. “They are smart kids.”

Johnny Ireland adds that grooving on The Stones or Pink Floyd is not a case of accommodating dad’s geezer music tastes.

“I feel like there is more passion (in classic rock),” he says. “I feel like there is more dedication that they put into their music. Most of the music now is just the same thing over and over again. Some of it is OK. But some of the older music just took a lot more work.”............

Yes, I agree, Johnny.
