    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...

    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...

    Is love to be born in the 80s so I can see more of the 90s. But that's as far as I should go. Being black, I shouldn't go anywhere past the 60s.
