    the quality of Music getting Poorer or am I just not Hip enough to keep up with the sound of today?

    in Lifestyle

    When I was a kid, I heard Music, and lots of it!! everything from the jackson 5 to James Brown & Aretha Franklin (the King & Queen of Soul, respectively) I Heard Marvin Gaye (my favorite) & Easter Phillips, Con Funk Shun (home town heroes-Vallejo) & Earth, Wind & Fire. The Isley Brothers & The Commodores, The Sylvers & The Osmonds, Thelonios Monk, Miles Davis, Donald Bird, Natalie Cole, Minnie Ripperton, Sly & the Family Stone and Slave, Lenny Williams, Rick James (biatch) and Teena Marie, the Beatles, Bread, Seals & Croft, the Doobie Brothers and I'm just skimming over the top of all the music I heard.

    Fact is I still hear this music today, loud and clear and I don't know if it's me or if that music is just so much better than what I hear in music today. I'm not saying there arent any standouts today (Alisha Keys, Anthony Hamilton, Rashaan Patterson, Ledisi, ) But I still need to continue having music from the 30's to the 80's as part of my listening diet. Am I just so old (musically that is) like back in the day with the old jazz heads,that I just don't want to accept the changing of musical styles and the new fresh sounds that are being produced today? or do I have a legitimate beef with todays music? Simply put for me music is like Hamburgers & Steaks, today is Hamburger only good when it's hot and the older music is like Steaks gets better as it gets older.

    If you have an opinion on this subject or you just want to hear what we have to say please tune in to our show "the way i see it" at www.blogtalkradio.com/jay-king or call in at 347-205-9366 Sunday, April 11th, 2010 from 2-4pm pacific standard time as Robert Redwine & I (Jay King) discuss this subject and the effect music has had on our society & lives with each other & you...
