Over the past year, I have been amazed at some of the songs playing on my SD's music thingys. Last night playing in the yard, what should come on but "Slow Ride" by Foghat. Wtf??????? Over the past year, she has been into Foreinger, (She LOVES "Cold As Ice"), Billy Idol, Bryan Adams, Blondie, Rick Springfield and The Go-Go's. I have been very impressed with her music selections, all of which her Mom and I had nothing to do with. Anyone else's kids going old school?

10 years ago, my then 6 year old son and I are waiting in line at a festival, and there's a roaming guitar player. He asked my son what song he should play. "In the Summertime by Mungo Jerry", he says.

These days, they know the older songs through Guitar Hero. I always cringe when I hear the youngest (11) sing along with Steve Miller - 'I'm a Joker, I'm a smoker, I'ma midnight toker'.

It's not exactly a limited phenomenon, and it kind of drives me nuts.

I was in a Jimmy John's where nobody over 20 worked and they had a mix tape of rock playing that would have been appropriate in the mid-1980's.

I blame the fall of AOR radio in favor of "classic rock", but even when I go into Taco Bell, they're playing 80's hits (and by hits, I mean more like Laura Branigan, Pat Benatar, Thompson Twins) only.

Poor kids today have no idea what it's like to have their own generation of music.

coming on this late, but I am embarrassed to tell you my daughter had a run when she was in high school (6 yrs ago) on full on disco. She got most of the Bee Gees, all KC and the Sunshine band, got Stewart's disco album, got MFSB and Chic and a lot of Donna Summer.

She's back to Alanis and Alicia Keys and the usual now. I had to play my tape of Disco Demolition for her. I went old school also as that is on VHS.

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Nah - they're better off. They have far more options these days than we ever had. They're not limited to what FM radio or what-ever-tv-station​-plays-music-videos is forcing down their throats. They're not really forced to abide by the odd and weird categories in which music was forced. They like what they like and can take it or leave it as it is.

And they have the added bonus of siphoning off the crappy music that we had to endure (a lot of it does not hold up all that well) and get only to the good stuff without the burden of nostalgia.
