Im a bit fed up with current music and the dross that is generated , so much so, that I dug out my old LP collection especially THe Beatles. What a joy and totally brillant.

Young people of today should be made to lsten to old Beatles LP's like Please please Me , Help, Revolver, rubber soul and my favourite Beatles for sale and Abbey Road.


Anybody else out there a bit like me or are all good music lovers destined to listen to Rap crap for the rest of or lives.

Its time music returned to 60's music.

Thanks to the Internet, all sixties music including very obscure tracks not easily accessible in the past is very accessible now. It's easier than ever for anyone to listen to old music.

Like you the Sixties is also my favourite decade for music, but I think if most kids today listened to it they'd just find it old fashioned and not very appealing - even artists as good as the Beatles. Let today's kids have their own music, as awful as you or I might find it.

We don't need a return to 60s music, we need people to get over their charts obsession and broaden their horizons enough to realise that there is plenty of great new music out there.

Perhaps this thread should be merged into the existing one on modern music?

The only .'modern music' I listen to is Gaslight Anthem and Weller, plus a bit of Oasis unplugged now and again.

Apart from that it's all 60's and 70's stuff for me, not really a fan of The Beatles though.

Stuff that's never off my iPod -

Springsteen
Dylan
The Band
Van Morrison
Marvin Gaye
The Who
The Jam
The Clash
Aretha Franklin
Otis Redding
Fleetwood Mac

Plus loads of other Blues and Soul music.

If your listening to The Gaslight Anthem you should also be listening to The Hold Steady, The Walkmen, Against Me!, Jerzey Street Band and obvisously The Horrible Crowes.

TBF apart from The Hold Steady I haven't heard of the others but will give them a go. Cheers.

Personally, I prefer what more current bands have produced with the influence of The Beatles to what they actually produced themselves:/

I used to listen to exclusively to chart music, got a bit fed up with it, and decided to make an effort to listen to stuff from older generations. I was amazed as I found myself listen to stuff from the 40's, 50's and 60's, and in doing so it actually put me off a lot of today's music!

Don't get me wrong, I still love a lot of chart music, but I discovered there is a lot more out there

I genuinely cannot stand The Beatles and hate the insinuation that nothing since could or has ever come close. There is a wealth of modern music that is more than equal to or good as you just gotta look for it.

There are still bands with a sixties sound.

Here's an example:

The Resonars - Invisible Gold

That's a local arizonan band that plays retro psychedelia... if I didn't tell you that song came out in 2013, you'd think it was 1968.

That thread appears to have dissapeared.

I grew up with the Beatles and my musical tastes matured with them

But as I've got older I've gone back to the first 4 or 5 albums, the three minute boy meets girl, boy loses girl type songs

They're brilliant - at the minute No Reply and Eight Days A Week are in favour

My favourites albums are the two soundtrack LPs - Help and Hard Days Night

Every track is a gem...........

Not really into boy bands if you ever get bored of the Beatles, there is always One Direction.

Mix between new and old

The cultural significance of The Beatles is well documented and evidenced and they were a very popular chart group.
On the other hand The Velvet Underground sold very few records in their time but have almost as much cultural influence as John, Paul, Ringo and Bert. I don't have any problem recognising the significance of both.

I've listening a lot to Slint recently and in future they may get similar recognition to VU, no guarantee of course. My bet is Nine Inch Nails are the real innovators and Gaga has more to offer but it could be that 1D or that twerp Bieber will have the lasting cultural influence. Life ain't it?

The Horrible Crowes are Brian Fallons (lead singer/somg writer of gaslight) other group - if anything they are even more Springsteen like, only one album called 'Elsie' it's ****ing great.

Only in the same manner as the Spice Girls

There are some some really talented female artists making music around today that is just as good as the 60s stuff. Acts like Caro Emerald, Paloma Faith, Joss Stone, Florence And The Machine, Lianne La Havas who would all have fitted into the 60s and made a big name for themselves had they been around then..

Add Theresa Andersson to that list. She's a swede, living in New Orleans, singing soul music, in a one-woman band.

I'm not a 60s snob at all but two things about that list and I like most of those artists (not Joss Stone).

One, good artists yes but all a bit retro (not necessarily a bad thing but not innovators and surprised you didn't mention Amy Winehouse or Adele). Two, really could any of them touch the garments of Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin or Tina Turner?

No they shouldn't! Young people of today should be encouraged to listen to various things but not made to! That is the quickest way to switch young people off! Anyway most people find their musical way eventually !
