Recommended Posts

lately i've been listening to nothing but shit from the 70's and 80's.

i've come to realize how much the music from back then

kicks the crap out of alot of what we listen to now.

 

basically post up your favorite joints from the 70's-80's.

 

first ten songs on my 70's/80's playlist:

1.hall and oats- maneater

2.blondie-heart of glass

3.ramones-the kkk took my baby away

4.david bowie- all the madmen

5.billy idol- white wedding

6.king diamond- the invisible guests

7.lynard skynard- freebird

8.iron madien- run to the hills

9.the x-ray specs- oh bondage

10.misfits-hybrid moments.

 

i did the search function for a thread like this and didnt find one.

sorry if one like this exists already.

i completely agree with you

 

new music is nothing compared to the old skool, and life is to short to listen to bad music...

 

 

 

marvin gaye, al green, eddie kendricks, killing joke, gap band, bar-kays, aything stax, mel and tim, commodores, 4 tops, crown heights affair, tower of power, imagination, parlet, starguard, even gordon lightfoot i fuck with

 

 

somewhere around 88 the only music that became worht a shit was hip hop and hardcore

Hip hop producers who sample are running out of material to incorporate in this new commercial radio rap era. I couldnt fucking believe I heard a radio rap song that sampled the Crystal Waters "Gypsy Woman" shit from the 90s. Its like, are you fucking serious? Like that song is even worthy of sampling, and why? I dont remember it making much of an impact even back then.

if you think music sucks now you're listening to shit to begin with.

 

sure, certain things have been established as classic, and some for good reason. most of what gets remember is shitty pop from a different era.

 

i'm constantly finding new music that is mindblowing.

 

maybe jazz will never be what it once was, but i'm pretty confident that ALL art is progressing.

i thought joy division and the buzzcocks are well known. arent they?

 

Not to me...I'd never heard of Joy Division until a few years ago, when they were everyone's favorite band.

 

I listened to Rap, Rock, and Metal growing up. :lol:

Hardcore has always been shit to me.

 

88 was a great year for hip hop though....That's when Sir Mix A Lot dropped Swass a timeless classic in my opinion.
