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.
