Topic: Music We Like & Music We Don't ... Why?
My 32-year-old son and I were having this deep discussion about music last evening, and trying to explain to each why we liked certain genres and didn't like others. Even within genres, we agreed that it can go from really good to really bad, so we also talked about why we felt this way about it also.
In a moment of transcendent enlightenment I summarized to him what I felt was missing in so much modern music: the musicians! That's right, the actual individuals who actually play musical instruments with some degree of skill, and can also write the music for their instruments to play.
What do you like or dislike about various music genres, or even the various eras of musical styles. And most importantly: why?
