@chienfou@simplersimon There really does seem to be a lot of remakes and covers, some are worthwhile, some are better than the original, and some just meh. I mean, look at Personal Jesus; do they really need 120 different versions? Yes, there are that many.
I’ve been waiting for this question. Last year I got really into Hey Steve (Spotify) (YouTube). They’re not unpopular but they could certainly use a listen if you haven’t heard their work. I might specifically recommend their latest song “Guru” with Patrick Carney (Spotify) (YouTube). Though I haven’t heard a bad song from them yet.
For the most part, new “music” sucks. I still play the same jazz, swing, r&b, blues, rock, western, and country music that I’ve listened to for decades. Anything between 1920 and 1990 is pretty much it for me
@edguyver14 Dude… I downloaded the “Adult Themes” album and finally got around to listening to it tonight. That is COMPLETELY not what I expected! That first track sounded like something from an 1970’s James Bond and later on I think I heard a little Snoopy on his Sopwith Camel sneaking into there. I’m not sure I’d listen to it on a regular basis, but it wasn’t bad. I will listen to it some more. Especially late at night… brown chicken brown cow lol… thank for the recommendation!

Been listening to 60’s since I was tiny. Just added each new decades music as time went on. Never been a fan of country, r & b or rap. Recently found international tastes like Korean, Hindu and bollywood sounds. Oh! and Russian, Congo…gosh, there’s so many in my Repertoire…
I have been discovering new stuff daily on Spotify. I finally broke down and decided to pay for a premium account and it’s worth every penny for uninterrupted music.
I do have a SiriusXM account but I end up listening to Spotify when at home because most of the music I like isn’t on satellite or local radio (at least around Iowa).
My first wife worked for a record distributor. I have well over a thousand CDs, used to have 500 vinyl albums as well, but converted them to mp3s. Don’t need new music. It would take years to listen to what I already have.
