musicThought I’d do a little post about music as I listen to Bruce Springsteen playing jungle land. People Jeff’s age remember the when Alan Freed first said those magical words when in traducing a Bill Haley song. Those word were Rock and Roll and boy did everyone’s parents hate those words just like their parents hated Jazz and today’s parents hate Hip Hop and Electric Dance Music. Jeff grew up with Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin and others of the big band era and still enjoys the music. But once Rock and Roll came around he became a fan and he really loves the Blues. IF he has only one complaint about today’s music it’s the same one he had with Disco music and that is it lacks originality it basically just remake of old music. The really good singer song writers that are out there have trouble getting their music heard except by a few loyal fans. It seems today it’s not so much about the music as it is about the performance. Now don’t get us wrong we thing Lady Gaga, and Madonna are very smart and talented people. The same cannot be said for Britney Spears and Justin Bieber. The jury is still out on a few like, Miley Cyrus and Kate Perry and others. We think maybe the digital age isn’t so good for music and we know there are a lot of people out there that will say, Jeff your old get over it a, and maybe there right but to him music has to have a lasting meaning. If he listens to an artist 10 years from now will their music still be relevant or will it just oldies. This is Flounder ( And I still groove to Budd Holley)saying CIAO from Colombia.
