Where has all the good music gone?

I remember when I was a little girl, and I would be riding in the car with my parents with the music playing. All I can remember is wondering why in the world they thought it was good music. I use to tell them that when I grew up I would always like the same music my kids liked... well Im sad to say, that is never going to happen! I cant even seem to listen to the local radio anymore. Thank goodness for IHeartRadio and Pandora! I plugged my iPhone in while I was folding laundry this evening, and it took me back to high school, when the only cares I had were what boy I liked, and what I was doing that weekend with my girlfriends. To me thats what music is about, hearing that song play and it taking you back to exactly what you were doing when you heard it the first time... Like for example, Staind "Its been awhile" (which is still my most favorite song) I remember the day that my best friend and I went to the mall to buy this CD right after we heard it play on the radio just so we could hear it on repeat for hours. And The Calling's "Wherever you will go" I was at Potomac Mills with 2 of my best friends in the world, I walked in to the music store and started playing this song, and immediately started to cry. It made me think of my 'boyfriend' at the time that lived out of town and I missed horribly. And another favorite is Hanson's "Every word I say" this one is really special to me because I was listening to this song on my way to the church the day I got married! :) I remember bouncing around in the seat, singing to the top of my lungs, with a cheesy smile on my face! One of the best days ever! I cant say that any song Ive heard recently brings back such vivid memories as those. I just hope when Elina starts really getting into her own music I can be tolerate of it or convert her to my side! :)

  1. Coundn't have said it better myself. It is amazing to me that the music industry has failed in my eyes (lately). I remember listening to many different tracks from Metallica to Red Hot Chili peppers rolling down the freeway care free. I am not sure if it is age or life, but it is as if it is getting harder to relate to todays music. I can only hope that the music will get better for the next generation.
