    I Am a Child of the 80's...

    and don't get me wrong, I LUV my 80's music.  But I also love the 50's & 60's,  Doo-Wop, Motown and early Rock-N-Roll are at the heart of most decent music still coming out of todays pop-tart era (for what very little there is). ...

    Music to My Ears

    While I must say that I do enjoy music from now-a-days,  I am much more into older music. I mean I like music from ALL the decades (take it back to the '20s). I probably like '80s the best... but I love it all. I'm an old rock type of gal. I love Bob Seger and the Silver...

    My Heaven

    Even though I am was an "eighties kid," I have always preferred the older and much smoother sounds of jazz, big band,and old-school r&b. (I have never been one to "fit in!") I like all types of music and believe it is the universal language that connects...

    I Belong Where The Oldies Are...

    The music that is the most popular has terrible profanity,and most songs have the same words or words that are just as equal but with a different beat. -_____- and the music focuses mostly on how girls bodies are sexually attractive. I love oldies because it seemed the love...

    I"m Certainly Born In the Wrong Generation.

    ARGHHH I cannot tell you how different my taste is from people my age.  Even my parents tastes are more modern than mine...  I have a passion for classical music, especially in the 1800's when romantism came into place... I love Beethoven, Schumann, tchiakovsky...

    I Hate the Music of My Generation

    I hate the crappy music of my generation. When I was a kid I was really into 70s music, still am in fact. When I got to be about 16, I started to get into 80s music more. The music of today is just mindless garbage. I wish I had been born at least 20 years earlier, so I could...
