I rarely listen to the music of today's artists, I do have "new" stuff though like Kisses On The Bottom and That's Why God Made the Radio...  I can tolerate Jazzy Mainstream music but Jazz/Fusion and Blues are what I like the most. My favourite "genre" (tend to avoid this word) is Rock And Roll (50's and 60's). I do have a bit of other Rock Tracks but I only select the stuff with "bassy" moments to compare it with Paul's. 

I seldom listen to the Who, only sometimes when I feel like it. 

Movies aren't that much of a thing for me, I feel that most mainstream movies have some sense in it.

Music..meh..I think it's a bit 50/50, maybe 60/40. I listen to a lot of ''older'' music (but really, what is older? Is 90s considered ''older''?) but I also listen to a lot of modern stuff. I think there might be a bit more ''older'' stuff in my iTunes though.

I tend to like modern movies better than movies from the 50s or 60s.

I love what works. Be it old, new, or future. Starting off with The Beatles as my first major love for music, and starting off with Rock And Roll Music Volume 1, I instantly started looking back for where they got it from. I say somewhere else on here that I hear them doing Matchbox but end up listening to Blind Lemon Jefferson. But as much as they were about where they'd been, they were also about where they were going, and that gave me a love for discovering the new twist. Current mainstream is mainly pretty dire, but go outside the mainstream there's lots to excite. You do tend to go for what you know though, so I'm probably 60/40.

Personally i think thats pretty mild for what is being released and played on commercial radio stations at the moment and what folk are swallowing. Everytime i think todays mainstream radio stations arent that bad i listen to one and remember they truly suck. Had to listen to Beyonce singing for 4 minutes about how men are thoughtless gits and then being told how great a song it was. Ok that might be an over the top description but it really annoyed me how bland it was. And that sums up the commercial scene at the moment - bland. At least Lady GaGa brought something new to the table at the beginning and made it a bit more interesting for a while. Outside in the clubs, bars and elsewhere there will be a lot of good music its just not getting thru.

I wasn't talking about what makes up mainstream media though, but those considered mainstream artists. 98% are, in the words of the late great Bill Hicks, "sucking Satan's c***", each and every one of them. Some of worth do get through and remind us that not everything new should be flushed down the toilet. Hell, I probably haven't listened to the radio in over a decade!

Thinking about who I'd put in the 2%. Paloma Faith. A true talent who could've thrived in any decade. Watch her version of Nick Cave's Into Your Arms on YouTube or It's Christmas and I Hate You and tell me there's not a gal who's mainstream by default of being good!

I never got what's so ''original'' and ''interesting'' about Gaga. She sings songs about ''taking rides on discosticks'' for god sake.

Yes she dresses original, but really, there are other ways to leave your mark than wearing a meatdress or whatever.

Her voice is alright though, she's one of the few female singers of today who can actually sing.

I love it, but then the original was just something I heard on the radio and never really got into. And whether good or bad, we can differ on that, horses 4 courses etc., at least she didn't Xerox.

Indeed and i was very harsh since Paloma has had a few very good songs that i like like Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful? - not that i know a lot of her work.

If someone played some of her songs then i would easily recognise them however.

 

Regardless of what Lady Gaga wore, or wears, at least her music offered something different to what else was out there, and i mean more her earlier stuff as in the end, i dont have a clue where she has gone, it did become more about making an entrance and being seen, the image, than the music. And it got tiring. Should add i dont own 1 of her songs.

I think the good thing about Paloma Faith is that, precisely what you said a-hard-days-night-ringo-8, her voice is easily recognisable. Which means that she doesn´t just sound bland and like all the other talentless artists out there, the ones who all sound the same to me.

As for Gaga, I agree, she now seems to focus on making the front cover of mags and newspapers rater than making music, which sort of goes against what ( I think ) she said she was all about when she first popped up.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Your definition of "new" and "old" starts getting amazingly skewed as you age.

In my first semester of college in 1973, I took a music review course in which the prof started our first first class by playing something "contemporary" for us...Revolution #9.  I sat there thinking, huh??  Old music, ancient!

Now...one of my favorite bands is Wilco.  I think of them as a "new" band.  But their first album was released almost 18 years ago.  So much for "new."

Oh, I have problems with Gaga. Never really seen her as making music, though do like some of what's she done musically. Always seen her more as a piece of performance art that used music to make her initial dent.

Indeed ahdn_george_06.

I've had an obsession with the 1960s for about two years now. I can't remember how or what started it, but I think it might have been after watching Austin Powers films a-hard-days-night-paul-7 I'm really glad I've discovered bands like The Beatles, The Stones, The Beach Boys, and more recently Pink Floyd and The Small Faces, as well as whole ton of other artists (much better back then than what crap gets placed in the charts today.) Watching films and TV series' from that era are amazing, as it seemed so exciting and vibrant (well, in Britain anyways) back then, as well as there being a huge outcry for world peace.

I suppose so. I really dig* archaic fashion/slang/etc. As for music, I'm not one of them who goes 'All of today's music is crap, I was born in the wrong generation' (ugh, shoot me now paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif), but I tend to like classic rock.

I listen to mostly music from the 50's - 80's. As far as TV shows and movies go, I watch whatever is good. I do think that most movies today are utter garbage, by sometimes you find those quality gems.

I think there is good modern music out there somewhere... Only that it gets overshadowed by pointless mush which has gang thing this, sex reference that, which for some reason, most people of this generation enjoy hearing. 

 I also found this quote from George.
