    Old Music

    I was born in the late 90's, so I am in my early youth now. And I don't think you can compare the music from today, with the old stuff. I really love music from the 60's, and i just adore The Beatles. I miss "Real music". cause it's like music has to made on a computer today...

    Love The Oldies

    I grew up listening to oldies. I can remember my family having parties and all they ever played were oldies. I remember my aunts and uncles doing the stroll, that was always my favorite. Oldies always trigger a happy memory. =]

    The Oldies Are The Best.

    I love listening to the oldies. They're the best. In my opinion 85% of todays music is crap. In the words of Bob Seger, "I like that old time rock and roll."
