It’s All Beginning To Sound The Same

Tag: genealogy,music,nostalgiaDonna B. @ 5:36 pm

My Momma used to say that all the music I listened to sounded like just noise. Now I say to my kids that the music they listen to all sounds alike… which makes it similar to just noise.

What will my grandchildren hear? Chances are it will pretty close to the same thing I heard and their parents heard. Both the complaints and the music will likely have this sameness in common.

Though the video below is fairly constrained on an historical time scale, there’s bait in there for several decades. I have to admit, I’m not familiar with a lot of the artists… but doesn’t all the music sound familiarĀ and familial?

    Thanks for linking to my blog post. You’re totally right that the more music changes, the more it stays the same.
