    Different music, different tempo’s, different beats, different looks, different songs, different writers, different lyrics and lyrics that actually meant something…

    The children of today are just so musically poor…

      arguably the same keys, same tempos, same scales, same looks, same record companies, same producers, same drugs, same themes…

      the children of today are still producing cool music, you just won’t hear it in the charts is all.

    At the risk of sounding like “yer da”, one thing that I think is missing today is musical tribes, when I was growing up you were into ska, or heavy metal, or indie, or goth or whatever and it was generally reflected in your haircut and clothing.
    You never really see that any more, music doesn’t seem as crucially important to this generation

      identities based on music are hilariously archaic to kids these days, and probably rightly so. our generation bought into the tribal thing in order to express ourselves, as if dressing like everyone else was a statement of our individuality..
      as i said above, kids love music and they always will. you just don’t have to go shaving your head or getting something pierced to prove it.

        If anything, they probably have more eclectic tastes than we had but I don’t sense the same passion and mania that we had, it seems a lot more disposable

          and no fixed commitment. I asked a kid near me recently what his favourite football team was. he listed off around 7. I told him that wasnt allowed. looked at me like I was denying him his human rights.

            That’s down to FIFA (the game), some kids follow players rather than clubs
