Why today's music sucks


#147

I have been away from this thread for a while. Which number was it posted to?


#148

Back in the day there was plenty of terrible music. We just tend to not remember it so much.


#149

Looks like about post 126. Won’t bother me if you don’t like it. I thought of this thread and you when I saw the performance this past SNL.


#150

Oh yeah. Remember “Billy don’t be a hero?” Gawd awful stuff.


#151

The worst song ever written is “Sylvia’s Mother” by Dr Hook and that was top 40.

Plenty of Terrible music much left forgotten


#152

Debbie Boone. Enough said.


#153

LoL my daughter is named Sylvia, and when she was little I put it on some mix tapes and would play and sing it for her in the car. But see, that’s how we all differ. I liked that song from the 70s.

No, I didn’t name her for the song. That was my Grandma’s name.


#154

Ha. That is funny.

But no really… in all aspects it really is a terrible song.


#155

That’s my ex-wife’s name. :unamused:

One of my local radio stations rebroadcasts Casey Kasems Top 40 countdown shows from the 70s. There is tons of terrible music that has been blissfully forgotten.

But I always find it entertaining to hear a song from some big artist from that era that was in the Top 40 then, but it’s been totally forgotten since. I can’t remember ever hearing some of these songs.


#157

Oh wow, who knew?


#158

Well, it’s a bit … overwrought. In a Meatloaf good kind of way.


#159

The Night Chicago Died-Paper Lace

The Night the Lights went Out in Georgia-Vicki Lawrence

Awful.


#160

Ahh. Meatloaf. I would do anything for love but I won’t listen to Meatloaf.


#161

The eternal question: What the hell is"that"?


#162

If anyone like rock music, Halestorm, Greta Van Fleet, Ghost, The Struts and Otherkin are very good.


#163

Going to bed… but I wanted to share with those who don’t know about the the bluegrass/country scene in NYC… seen this guy, Morgan O’Kane a couple of times and he is so good it is like a religious experience.


#164

I cannot argue with that.


#165

Short song. See if you can spot the part where Def Leppard borrowed from the Archies.


#166

Well, I know that song by heart, it’s great for singing and dancing, but I really don’t know anything by or about def Leppard.

Maybe you should have posted a song by Def Leppard to see if I could guess what they were borrowing from?
