One girl group that always had great harmonies was the Chiffons.


They were known for songs like "He's So Fine", "One Fine Day", and "Sweet Talkin' Guy".


Just ran into this underrated gem by them from 1965 with Sylvia Peterson on lead instead of Judy Craig who sang lead on the previously mentioned songs

I like a mixture of both, but a lot of the newer stuff by older artists.

Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression.
Motorhead - Bad Magic
PIL - What the World Needs.
Billy Gibbons and the BFG's - Perfectamundo (Blues, Jazz, Funk, Latin)
AC/DC - Rock or Bust
Status quo- Live at The Roundhouse (Aquostic)

There has always been good music out there for everyone regardless of what genre appeals to them, but you have to pull your head out of the fog of nostalgia and look for it. My musical tastes are all over the map, but progressive rock and metal (new age and orchestral coming a close second) have always been dearest to me, both of which have never actually died, and have expanded into many sub-genres.

I love the classic stuff as much as anyone else, but it's not very "progressive" to choose being stuck in a particular era. The older music will always be there to revisit at any time. 2016 (and early 2017) was a monumentally devastating year for the progressive genre with legends like Keith Emerson, Greg Lake, and John Wetton all dying. All unique and irreplaceable talents, but the proverbial torch still needs to be carried.

I've been listening to country again here lately, but in NY the radio selections are quite limited. Rediscovering that radio's still play music, I found a non-profit station that mixes genre's by the hour. I'm not too picky when it comes to music, just so long as its not too loud. My hearing has certainly been effected by my past stupidity, and I now wear filtering ear plugs when in clubs or at concerts.

I would like to see new blues artists writing more original material instead of playing old tunes. Shoot even Mick Jagger still writes and plays the blues.

I really like 80's top 40 music.

The mainstream then seemed a lot more varied than the tripe we get for pop today.

^^^ me too! After listening to a wide variety of unpopular music all my life, I've been listening to 80's radio at work and dig the hell out of it. Early Madonna b sides, hall n oates, heart, chicago/cetera, m.jackson. Its really interesting how guitar players had to take a back seat to keyboard dominated tunes, but were still employed for a wild solo......

Am I the only one to consider that as far as the " rock " genre goes, it's all been done. There are some decent "recycles" ( Alice in Chains as a decent recycle of Sabbath, for example ), but otherwise....as a Bostonian would say....fahget about it

Well, I am in a minority- I love finding new music-artist, sometimes even in languages I do not know- I like eclectic and world beat- diverse beats, tempos, and instruments- depends on my mood- Often do like older stuff with which to sing or dance. Not fond of old country, opera, jazz can be a bit discordant for me. I do like some of the newer country- a lot of the old country music is too " crying in my beer" however, I do like Johnny Cash-Prefer female country artist- but available country stations in my area-play a dearth of female artists.
Newer artist- awol Nation, Avett Brothers, Joe Hertler and Rainbow Seekers, The Zombies, Kesha(newer stuff), older faves Killers, leanord cohen, Steve forbert, ani Difranco has been around over 20 yrs- she is still writing songs and producing albums- her label " righteous babe records" produces artist who fail the commercialized hype. 88.1 WYCE is a favorite station on net and FM- play many unknown. Favorite genres Blues, rock and roll, dance-techno, even rap Blues style folk, Zydeco. Lot of Reggae and African styles.

^I'm a blues fan myself, and like the newer stuff by artists like The Ben Rice Trio found around the festival circuit. I get tired of listening to the same old thing, so I will agree with you on the international front. Being from Greek decent I do like a Euro influence.

Pretty much anybody who's a new music hater is a lazy piece of crap who's completely out if touch on how to find good music in the current environment. There's so much awesome stuff out there right now. I feel sorry for y'all.

I agree. If one can't be bothered to look for new music, they obviously don't want it. The 2000's have been a very exciting time with my favorite genres. If the music I grew up with was all I had, I would be f*cking miserable.

I've been listening to Ketty Lester lately. I only knew her song "Love Letters", but I have expanded that playlist significantly. I have 40 of her songs on a custom playlist on Spotify. I have purchased 2 of her albums on vinyl and 1 on CD.


Talk about gorgeous, classy, elegant, and feminine...

LOTS of good new music if you know where to look.

But I have been somewhat immersed in the local music scene for several years.

As far as new "old" music I have been listening to a lot of Japanese jazz fusion and electronica and I don't even know how to categorize it, just stuff popping up in You Tube sidebars that I end up really digging. Also became really fascinated with Mongolian music after reading Genghis Khan And The Making Of The Modern World and read mentions of music and decide to You Tube it.

This is my favorite.

There's nothin' for us in Belfast
The Pound's old, and that's a pity
OK, so there's the Trident in Bangor
And then you walk back to the city
We ain't got nothin' but they don't really care
They don't even know you know
They just want money, we can take it or leave it
What we need

Is an Alternative Ulster
Grab it and change it, it's yours
Get an Alternative Ulster
Ignore the bores and their laws
Get an Alternative Ulster
Be an anti-security force
Alter your native Ulster
Alter your native land

Take a look where you're livin'
You got the army on the street
And the RUC dog of repression
Is barking at your feet
Is this the kind of place you want to live?
Is this where you want to be?
Is this the only life we're gonna have?
What we need

Is an Alternative Ulster
Grab it and change it, it's yours
Get an Alternative Ulster
Ignore the bores and their laws
Get an Alternative Ulster
Be an anti-security force
Alter your native Ulster
Alter your native land

They say they're a part of you
And that's not true, you know
They say they've got control of you
And that's a lie, you know
They say you will never
Be free, free, free

I like music from all the decades, have stereo channels set for everything, top 40, mellow jazz, soft listening, rock, hip hop/rap, classical. I did a lot of partying during the disco years, so I love Donna Summers, Michael Jackson, Pointer Sisters, and who can forget France Joli singing, "Come to me". https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vcIXBJJeozM.

You play disco in Brooklyn, everyone is getting up and dancing.

Donna Summers


It's Donna Summer and she left us way too soon back in 2012. We lost Whitney Houston that year, too.

My favorite decades are the 1960s and 1970s. In my opinion, the 1980s was not a good decade. I felt it played it too safe, especially in R&B. A couple of my favorite singers Diana Ross and Donna Summer had stronger material in the 1970s.

I was single for the disco era, so I spent a lot of time in clubs listening to that music. Moving forward, disco never died in Brooklyn.
