    My favourite music to listen to is from the

    60's-90's...I swear some of the best music is from that era. It isn't utter stupidity talking about females, money and irrelevant things. Most music from back then has a good beat and meaning. There still is some good music from this era but I find myself being more of a fan of...

    Better Then Now

    Modern music is mainly rap or techno. Which i personally think is annoying. I would rather listen to ACDC and Elton John then Lil Wayne and Eminem or something. Sure i do like some modern day music but i prefer oldies then modern.

    I don’t care for todays music.

    My taste is old school. My playlist consists of people like: Tupac, Air Supply, Beatles, Elton John, Elvis, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, classic love songs, and other great hits from a long time ago. A great song is a great song no matter how old it is. The 50...

    Influenced

    I was 14 years old when I started listening to the band called "The Beatles". It began when I started dating one guy, and he lets me listen to Beatles songs. At first I didn't like what I heard and we broke up for some reason. His best friends became my best friends too and we...

    I absolutely love old music!

    I collect records, they range from the classical Mozart and Beethoven, to the late 60s early 70s. Music before the 90 was amazing and actually had meaning, now all the music is the same and have similar lyrics. Sadly We will never get another Tchaikovsky, a bill Haley, the...

    R&B Lover

    Nothing is better than putting on some Motown and dancing in the kitchen, Barefootin'. Strolling thru the house with the vacuum. Twisting as I pick up and dust. Love the dance music and the nostalgia it invokes in my heart. I think that's when I really feel alive these days.

    I love the music that isn't really OLD,

    but stuff that I heard as a child that I just can't remember but I still know the tunes of them. Finding an old childhood song is just a pretty great feeling.

    The 1500s through the 1990s are over.

    Music basically became a big turd from pop stars trying to recreate it. Sonny and Cher are gone, Beethoven's style is like Latin. dead. Pet Shop Boys don't write new material, taco just does covers, spanky and his gang are long gone and many others. Wish I could've grown up in...

    It's catchy and fun to listen to.

    An old flame of mine taught me how to swing dance and I've loved it since then. I'm a bit of a klutz but I feel as if I can bust a move! :)

    60s Music Just Great

    Music from the sixties is my favorite especially the beetles and the roiling stones just love the sound. sometimes I wish I would have been a teenager in that time it just seems as if things were much more fun then and I think the music of the time reflects that.

    Old music is incredible.

    Maybe because it's unknown but it reminds me of what it took to make it back in the day. I'm too young to know but old music brings me back to the times where people had to write their own stuff and had to have a lot of their own talent or knowledge of music. Now a pretty face...

    I Love Old Music

    In my opinion 90% of the news music is crap. The older music is definately the best. The newer music doesn't have any structure. It's pathetic.
