In musical talent and ethical insight? yes. In actual similarities in sound? no.

Yeah, you completely missed my point. There's new stuff that is also good, you don't have to go for the old stuff to find good stuff.[/quote]
I didn't miss it. I gave it the split second of my time it deserved and I moved on.

Well if you want to completely miss all the good music that is coming out now then go ahead and live in the past.

Because we both know it's completely impossible to look for newer AND older music. That's just unheard of.

I have spent the night at my job, just sitting and listening to music from bands that I had never heard of before many times. Amazing what you can discover at a used records store.

The thing to do is, when you go into the music shop and you see that section marked Rock/Pop, you avoid it.

I think it's just a matter of what naturally appeals to you. I give a lot of different kind of music a chance, and as it turns out, I like a lot of what I hear. I even like Britney Spears, how bout that, probably because I was into her when I was younger and I still get into her music. It's probably a weak thing to say, but I don't think there's reason to critisise a person if they like a certain type of music just because it naturally appeals to them.

That'd probably be about my two cents worth.
Jesus, lol.

for 'artists' like britney its more about the image they betray then any real talent on their part. i would be less angsty baout it if they wrote their own songs and played their own music. rather then simply being a public image for a corporate group to make money from.

What are you, John Kerry? First you say that the old music is where it's at. I say that new music is also good. You say this:

about what I said, which was that there is a lot of new stuff out there that is good, which gives me the impression that you don't care about the new stuff.

That's why I said this:

And now you're saying that you like new music too? That's what I was trying to say in the first place, damnit. Just staying with old music is idiotic and people should also look forward to new music since it is good as well.

So what do you think about people like John Mayer?

He sings "Your Body is a Wonderland"

Edit: He has much much much better songs.

You know Nekra, Elvis Presley didn't write any of his own songs, and every move he made musically and artistically was a decision made by his label. In fact, the only reason Elvis is considered the King of rock and roll is because he was white and CHuck Berry (a far more talented musician) was black.

Elvis being The King has only to do with his popularity and the reverance with which his fans regard(ed) him. It has nothing to do with his skin color or his musical talent. I find it odd that you would even suggest that.
