I Love The Sixties

Quality of music comes and goes and in my opinion contemporary music is in a bit of a rut. I never agree with the Rolling Stones 500 best albums or NME’s polls either for that matter. Who are these industry pundits that choose anyway, aren’t they listening to the same musical masterpeices that I do?  –  Philistines.  –  Here’s a list of my 50 alltime faves for the perusal of these music industry heavyweights.

  1. My Parents Were BOTH Born in 1951, and therefore BOTH Graduated High School in 1969 (something My Father remains VERY Proud Of, btw) So While I’m A Child Of The 80s, Most Of The Music I Listened to for the 1st few years of my existence was Mid-60s to Late-70s.
    And OMG Did My Friends At School MAKE FUN OF ME.
    In 1996, The Popular Kids Had SOUND-SYSTEMS in their Cars, so they could play The Latest Hip-Hop-Crap AS LOUD AS POSSIBLE.
    So I Had A Sound-System Put Into MY 1982 Datsun Pick-Up-Truck. The 1st Cassette I BLASTED In The School Parking-Lot???
    Trust Me, Nothing Kills Any Hope Of Being Popular like “HENRY THE VIII, I AM” when everyone else is listening to T-Pack and Snoopydog, etc etc etc
    Yeah, I Know…
    …I’m Lame…
    Keep’Em Comin’, Ms. Baghead!
    I’ll Keep Comin’ Back, Fo Sho!

    • Sorry About the Ms. Baghead.
      The “s” is a Typo.
      Sorry Dude.
      My Bad 😉


    • I like a lot of stuff my son listens to which is Aussie Hip Hop but he also likes a lot of the stuff I play because he’s been brought up with it. For me following older music that has already been filtered by popular culture is more expedient because the music that survives was rubber stamped by the masses. Contemporary music to me is hit and miss – I have to listen to a lot of garbage to find the pearlers.
