I try very hard to listen to ‘new’ bands, but just get very bored very fast. I enjoyed 3 Doors Down and Green Day back when they were new, but never bought anything from either band after their debut albums.

Instead, I find myself going farther back in time and listening to more music from the 50’s. I’ve also been getting into very old blues music.

It seems I prefer the artists who influenced the Beatles over those they influenced going forward.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

I’ll listen to new stuff, but only bands. Mostly rock bands. Imagine Dragons are my favorite (And to carry over from the shows thread, they were great on SNL last week)

My sister plays today’s pop hits all the time in the car and I find that many of them I can’t stand. The majority seem to lack ingenuity and actually sometimes it brings down my mood (and I’m a very happy hyper person in general). There are exceptions of course, but I can’t think of titles or bands off the top of my head since I don’t bother to find out. Really the only new-ish hit I’ve even downloaded on my iPod is Viva la Vida by Coldplay, and it’s no longer new.

I’m with Zig – far more inclined to enjoy old music that’s *new* to me, these days. (But I’ve been listening to little else besides ’60s jazz CDs the past few weeks – that’s the kick I’m on.)

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Been listening to short bursts of Alicia Keys ‘The Element of Freedom’ which is enjoyable, tho possibly a bit samey and therefore tiresome if tackled all in one. The other is ‘OK Computer’, that huge LP from Radiohead. Actually found it surprising enjoyable so will get around to hearing more of their catalogue as time goes by. 

The most recent track i possess is Lorde’s ‘Royals’, in small doses its a little different catchy tune but played more than once every two/three months and it would get incredibly boring quickly.

Check out Kid A from them. It’s fantastic. Idioteque and The National Anthem especially.

Thank for the recommendation. I’ll try and get around to it sometime but who knows when; so little time, so much to know (and hear).

On the old things I’m just trying, I’m trying to expand my musical knowledge a bit (because (almost) literally it’s just the Beatles)

So I decided to start with Nirvana, Bob Dylan, and Radiohead.

The albums I have chosen as my first listen for each of these is Nevermind, Blood on the Tracks, and OK Computer. (Kid A was actually the only Radiohead I knew.) 

I’ll let you know how it turns out.

I started to listen to Dylan just last year and really enjoy it, tho it is quite a bit of hit and miss i’m finding, the majority is good bordering on excellent. Blood on the Tracks is another on my ‘to-get-to’ list – when that will be i don’t know.

I actually think I reported the results in another thread, but I can’t remember, so here’s a condensed version

Nirvana=incredible

Dylan=not as good

Radiohead=good, I knew that already

I get so sad about Nirvana, I think they really would have developed, and they’re really the only artist I think ever had a chance of being the next Beatles. They could’ve been incredible.
