Right .... Just as no one today has any concern for folks like Motzart or Beethoven. 

Maybe in your world Steve. I haven't heard a Beatles song in ages, other than TE playing them. I grew up with them but left them when I grew up.

Yeah, I noticed 

I went the wrong way with my post. Better to have emphasized the music of those past composers.

Dream on.  Current airplay is virtually nil?  That there is some funny s**t.

I'd be curious to see any airplay list that includes the Beatles at anything higher than 1 play out of 1000 per week . . . maybe on Liverpool TalkRadio?

For Spotify's first 100 days of hosting The Beatles - starting April 2016 -  6.5 million Spotify listeners played a Beatles tune - that's 65-thousand per day.

As of 2015, Spotify claimed to stream almost a billion songs a day. That puts Beatles airplay at about 0.0065 % - aka statistically nil.

I think it's a service for discovering where exactly your great-great grand-children's diapers leaked on your linoleum

This turned a bit nasty.

There's a quote in a book I recently "Why You Like Music" by John Powell - right on the first page of Chapter 1, which states some evidence that no matter how old you are, you think the best music is what was popular in your late teens and early twenties.

You can do the Amazon.com "Look Inside" and read it for yourself.
https://www.amazon.com/Why-You-Love-Music-Metallica--/dp/0316260657/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1474339961&sr=1-1&keywords=why+you+like+music#reader_0316260657

I made this premise in a similar thread about 6 months back and there were vehement denials of this that 'no, the music when I was a youth WAS better and it will never be as good again' or something to that effect.  FFWD 20 years and you'll hear the same.

Arguing about it is kind of a no-win solution for something that is so subjective in nature and difficult to 'prove'.

The OP can always delete a thread he started - tho I'm not a fan of deletion. Topics drift, they always have After we post Scotty Moore  luved him, he was great, RIP - what do we say now? I found this drift interesting - mainly two passionate posters likely from different generations articulating their beliefs about music that didn't come across to me as hurtful.

I would say the door was opened by the OP by stating " wouldn't of had Elvis" - a couple of members just decided to walk through it.

I'd hope we can disagree with one another here, and say it without being too personal or hurtful. Hope we are big boys and girls!

Not sure about the different generations part - is a generation 25 years?  I was 10 when Let It Be was released.

I like The Beatles fine (Elvis too) grew up with them - played them, taught their tunes to people - I just find the broad musical historic trends to be really interesting - and players like Scotty Moore are very significant to those trends.

Me too! Though you articulated your position much better than I could have!

Since my great great grandchildren will reside in the future, I am not sure what your point, if you have one, is.

Sorry, I thought this response:

was meant to be funny, so I made an apparently lame attempt to respond humorously.

It seems it was a serious question; I humbly offer my apologies for my flippancy

I think the author is on to something but I am an exception to the rule.  I hardly ever listen to the music of my late teens, but I know many people from my generation do (late 80s/early 90s).  When I grew up I figured out there was a world of music I'd never heard of (and not the hippie music of the 60s).  I do occasionally listen to a song from my youth but it is rare.

I would not listen to the music of the late 80's or 90's either, given a choice.  as for the 60's ....probably the most diverse popular music ever .... from the singing nun to led zep.

I can only add that some music doesn't appear to age. Whether played once or a million times, there are pieces of music that work  regardless of how many times you've heard them, how, why, when or where.  Others quickly sound dated and you wonder why anyone ever liked them.  Anyway, RIP Scotty and ... beam me up.  whistling

I think that wandering threads are great.  The human brain is amazing .... it is just mind numbing the roads it will take from a starting point.
