Oldies but goodies
February 24, 2008 - Steve Murch
The other day I popped a Beach Boys CD into my player to listen while walking to work. In a way I guess part of it ws because it was cold and I hoped it would help bring warm summer feelings as well as just wanting to listen to the Beach Boys.
While I was listening to it, one thought kept running through my mind — will any of the music from the ’60s be listened to in another 15-20 years? For obvious reasons, the 1980s are viewed as oldies for today’s youth who are the biggest music listeners. The ’60s are downright archaic in comparison.
While the Beatles and a handful of others will live on, many of the artists and songs, including much of Motown, are bound to disappear. It only makes sense since, there are hundreds of new songs that hit the airwaves every year. In sheer numbers, something has to give.
It’s really too bad since some of the songs that could/would/should be timeless will fade away.
