Trying to re-evaluate The Beatles.

 

Blackbird was a dirge. My favourite bird too. Think I prefer The Stones in retrospect     

 

Prefer the Stones too.  Have most albums by both bands... well, when they were at their artistic peak, which for the Stones stops probably around 1976 and the Beatles 1969.  There's great songs by both bands but to me the Stones just edge it.

Maybe this is middle aged angst but I find adding my songs to this thread are increasingly old songs and even the newest date back to the early 2000s.  Maybe I'm an old duffer who just doesn't get "today's music".  I really struggle with it, with its autotune and its bland autobiographical themes but equally, maybe I'm just a reactionary git who just doesn't get the depth and wide range of today's music.

 

I don't get Ed Sheran, I'm told he's got depths but I just don't see where they are.  It all seems one note to me.  Likewise Adel.  It just seems like Simon Cowell rubbish, obviously Ed Sheran and Adel aren't "all" today's music but to me it seems like it.  Maybe mentioning Ed and Adel is a sign of how utterly out of touch I am. Maybe it's time for the pipe and slippers and a disconcerting expression at the failings of today's 'younger generation'?
