Hi all it's Bryce. I haven't been able to stop thinking about the post that was created the other day about the "New Generation" that was growing up. I had an interesting vision this morning, thanks to my Mini Wheats no doubt. :) All of us have a "generation" of music that we listen to. I personally like classic rock, AC/DC, Aersomith, etc. BUT, here is the though. All of us seem to pick a type of music and stick with it until we die. The new generation that I am stuck in is thriving off of RAP, all of the kids sing along, turn it up in the Subaru, and "rock out". So imagine if you will, a retirement home full of old people, singing along to SnoopDog and friends. hehehe :) Just thought I would share, goes to show that we are all different! Bryce

The difference between Elvis and now is morality. Yeah, he couldn't hold hold still when he sang, but he had a lot more moral fiber than, say, Sinatra, even after he got screwed up on drugs and fame. That was the difference. Fame screws all those people up, some more than others, but now they SEEK the fame so they can be screwed up morally, ethically and spiritually. I think that's the difference.

You know what music I miss? The "beautiful music" we used to get on WEZF out of Vermont. It played in our house all the time. Mostly instrumental stuff, what some would term elevator music, but not quite. It was relaxing. You can't find it anymore. There used to be AM stations at night I could get that played "American Standards", Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peggy Lee, Bing Crosby, Perry Como, Doris Day, etc. Good stuff, all gone now.
I'll take the music of the 40's, 50's and early 60's, both pop and country, any day. Thrown in The Carpenters, a little Marshall Tucker and I'd be happy.

Bryce: My 47 year old wife likes RAP!!! I do mean RAP. She had a amp and sub woofers in her car. LOL She complains when people give her funny looks when she gets out of her car at the store.

You hear a car thumping the base drive up and you think there should be someone YOUNGER than 30 get out. Here she jumps out. LOL

Its funny as I read the posts below. A number of them referencing nursing homes and rap music, gang signs, or Kiss and Areosmith, and so on. About a year ago I had a phone repair at a nursing home where a lot of the nurses had tatoos like biker chicks, and I'm not complaining. I like biker chicks just fine for the most part. Besides, they (the nurses) seemed to know thier jobs, I suppose as best I could tell. But I went out to the truck to get something, and there were two of the aids or cleaning women, I don't know, wearing uniforms, sitting in the front seat of one of their cars passing a joint back and forth. I stood there a minute and watched them, then realized that they were not going to be involved with giving medication or anything like that, were probably not making a whole lot above minimum wage. I suppose that they could have went back and put too much starch in someone's drawers, maybe too much wax on the floor, missed some spots on the dishes, but I'm pretty sure that they weren't going to be prescribing or dishing out the meds, writing the menus or spoon feeding anyone. I went back to what I was doing, walking away with a chuckle.

Being a telephone guy by day takes me into a lot of interesting places as far as I'm concerned, and I'm not complaining.

Funny you should mention that. I was visiting an old friend in a nursing home last Saturday, and the big screen TV in the lobby played non-stop Elvis music from the mid-50's, old shows when Elvis weighed 140 pounds and twisted like a pretzle.

All the old folks in our church said Elvis would ruin the world. Wasn't much of a world if a truck driver from Memphis could ruin it by twisting his butt. Actually, by todays standards he looked pretty clean cut.

I read that to my wife, she plays the piano every week at an assisted living facility, she plays music from 1910 to about the 40s(a sing along)for them. We had a good laugh thinking about what it will be like for the generation after us. Ours won,t be to bad music from the 50s to the 80s.

Most people tend to like the music that is popular when they are in grade school through college, and maybe about 10 or 15 years after. As such, I don"t like much that came out after 1980. My car radio has been tuned to the local oldies station for many years. It annoyed me when that station changed their format from 50"s, 60"s and 70"s, to 60"s 70"s and 80"s, but the station manager explained to me that they hoped to gain listeners with the somewhat later music.

One of my best friends was 16 years older than I. We rode back and forth to work together for many years. He liked a station that played songs from the 40"s and 50"s. Jack was surprised that I not only enjoyed that station, but often would sing along and would know who was singing. Apparently I was paying quite a bit of attention when the radio was on when I was a little kid!

Lots of today"s kids like rap. I don"t, because I have a tough time picking out almost any of the words, and at least with some of what is being said, maybe that is good, because what they are saying would make me angry. I do not consider rap to be music, but rather something less, since usually there is a beat, but no melody line. It seems like NOISE to me, especially when it is being played so extremely loud. It especially annoys me to FEEL the beat inside my closed car from another car"s sound system going by.

But kids will be kids...and they will do what they will do. And it is probably their right to make their own decisions about what they want to listen to. On their turf. Rap is not allowed in my house, period.

But I doubt that my opinions about music will change much. If I ever have to stay in a nursing home, and if ANYTHING still really matters to me, I would imagine that I would lobby strongly to have the music preferred by the paying customers, rather than then employees. Will I ever like rap? No way!

where I grew up we had both kinds of music on the radio. Country and western.

I hated both, still do. Just an old rocker.

Watched many of my old friends convert to country in their 30's.

Not me though.

Agree don't like the "noise" but it is the continuous hand gestures and repeated crotch grabbing that gets very old. Appears they are otherwise unable to communicate.

I know of a family who's kids never have to do anything. No chores, not even mowing the lawn. This was in the early 60's in NJ. There were several families around like that. I hated it because I had to mow lawn and help in our garden while my buddies were playing ball and having fun. I took out the garbage, took my turn doing dish's and the list goes on. Never got an allowance or paid. Mom kept track of those families until she passed in 98. Guess what? Those "lazy kids" did just fine for themselves. We have to remember that in todays world kids are not allowed to run a power mower for pay. Everyone has a dish washer and about the only chore a lot of these families have is taking out the garbage. So we have to give the kids a chance to prove themselves. Sure some are going to be worthless bums but others are going to be OK. I remember my dad going on about the lazy kids and long hair and the music. These were the young men who got sent off to Viet Nam. The ones who protested. Todays older crowd who matured into decent pillar of the community type people.

I like country and classic rock...

I have also smiled to myself at the thought of possibly ending up in a nursing home someday with others of my generation listening to (or singing) songs like, "Highway to Ell", or "Born to be Wild"... or how about a little Molly Hatchet, "Flirtin' with Disaster".

Then again, we could rewrite a senior version of the Pink Floyd song, "Another Brick in the Wall"...
"We don't need no medication...Hey, nurse-aid - just leave me alone!"

Hope I never end up in a care facility - but I'm sure the music will be funny if I do!!

Bryce, I have envisioned that same nursing home scenario many times. LOL. It's interesting that a young man would be thinking that far ahead. I also envision lots of old saggy, unidentifiable tattoos around the nursing home dining table.
