Raised As A Music Junkie

I don't have very many fixed music artists as my "favorite", I usually go by songs. I love April Wine and Trooper as a band but I don't like ALL of their music. The Beatles, I love of course but again, not ALL of their music. Other songs like Always by Erasure or Radio by Yelawolf...I like those too.

My parents where huge music fans as I grew up, I have listened to most of their music..which is just fantastic. I love their style and I totally love the 60's, 70's and 80's. 90's where alright and 00's where okay but anything after 2005 wasn't anything to care for. Very few songs out there now a days that I actually enjoy. I'm lucky enough if I find that one song. I guess it's more of the new comers coming and the oldies retiring. Kinda sucks but at least we'll always have them in our hearts :)

Maybe all that your looking for in a song is meaning. I find the lyrical stupidity of a lot today's conventional music to be rather vain. That is why I only really listen to Reggae. More specifically, of the Lover's Rock variety. You should give it a try. A have a few story and if you scroll to the bottom, all but one of them has a youtube video of a song attached.

Let me know what you think!

...Isn't it a little vain to be saying that you stick to one genre only without giving others a chance? I mean seriously, bashing my music is a bit offensive, especially when you're begging me to listen to yours.

...do you always assume the worse in people? I wont hold it against you as I tend to do the same. In any case, I stick to that one genre not necessarily because I don't think others have a chance, I do so because the specific style and melodies are to my liking. I have song from other genres as well but they represent a mere few. I just though you would like to check it out. I'm was not begging you and if I were a more emotional person, I would feel a bit offensive for you putting words into my mouth and assuming the worse.

But... I'm not. Lol. Peace.

every decade has great songs, you just have to sift through till something grabs your attention.</p>

Thankfully, some did. I just forget about them. Gotye is pretty good.

I grew up listening to classic rock with my parents I love it still. I'm really into electronic music too but just to dance really. Classic rock & 90s are my go to music just to listen to :)

Cool beans :)
