You'd only have a point if it was a similar genre of music...

Never took to Matt Munro or Sinatra. Too mannered for my taste. I think of them as my mum and dad's listening. I'm far too young.. ::)


My OH worked with trios and dance bands playing swing and American song book standards.  Love the music. He was also in a country duo but his bread and butter was social clubs.  :-\

My grandchildren like some of the music/songs from the sixties..
 They have been brought up hearing music from different times.

I prefer the 70s, some of the 60s were okay and the same for the 80s, and then it tapers off as the decades pass  ;D
I rarely listen to the radio (never at home and only Radio 3 or 4 on the very odd occasion in the car) in the pub they sometimes have Radio 2 on but it's usually Gold or an oldie compilations on a flash drive, consequently I have absolutely no idea of any songs or artists in the current charts I literally couldn't name one and that suits me just fine.

I know I am old and behind the times, but of that list I assume that Kylie is Kylie Minogue, of whom I have heard but not listened to, but never heard of the others.

No offence, but I wouldn't pay good money to see any of that lot.

I don't like festivals Sue..Not since I was hired to MC and play at a Country music one. The crowd showed up and the bands showed up and all was going well until one of the bands asked me about money. I had no idea of the finance arrangements and I'd accepted the gig over the phone so didn't really know the thieving git who'd disappeared with all the money. Naturally, none of the bands would play and the crowd were getting more and more rowdy not to mention threatening me physically so I said I was going to call the organizer and went toward the car park. Enough was enough so I picked up a couple of bottles of Jack Daniels from the bands refreshment tent and gave one to the ice-cream van driver who smuggled me out and drank the other myself...Bad gig. ;D

Zoony  :o .


Love festivals, you'd be surprised how many of the audience consist of the older generation.  Its good to let your hair down (as long as you've got some ;D ).

Mike, my brother was in Las Vegas about 1960  and was stood at a bar having a drink when he heard the Inkspots  music playing, he smiled to himself thinking ive got that record back home in Hamilton, when he turned round they were there on a small stage about six feet away from him

Songs bring back memories..
Ring Of Bright Water by Val Doonican..The Classic Cinema and crying at the end of the film.
1968, The Good The Bad And The Ugly..the theme made our dog howl.
Chicago, If You Leave Me Now...a girlfriend moved to Melton Mowbray and i helped in scorching heat drinking dandelion & burdock.
Saw the Stones at Knebworth and Queen, Xmas time in 1975 and slept on the platform at St.Pancras.
