    If you thought she was "trying out for next years (sic) grannies (sic)", you must have just about reached the end of you beer intake for that evening, bobbys.

    Oh, OK I never saw the show, and am pretty sure I never have. It was silly to put that clip in there. Bobbys, I apologise. I'd be interested to hear your take on the music. Which is what this thread is about

    Mrs JimD half watched it so I half heard what she half watched. That 'best new country' guy looked and sounded just like dozens of long haired country guys from the 70s and onward. It might as well have been Charlie Daniels.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    Yes, pop music has always been about profit and for every original voice there are 1000 copies, but I've never seen so little originality in my life. I've also never seen so much vulgarity, misogyny, or all-out sex used to sell recordings. Sorry, but a lot of these women are selling music with their thighs rather than their voices.[/QUOTE]

    Yes, I couldn't agree more with this statement.
    I annoyed a young lady I know by asking her.
    "Do you know why modern female singers dress the way they do"?
    Because they can't sing for s**t!!! Sex sells.
    You never saw the female singers of yesterday dress this way because they actually knew how to sing.
    Examples: Roberta Flack, Dionne Warwick, Dolly Parton etc.
    I very rarely listen to music of the modern era.
    I once thought I was wrong, but I was wrong, I wasn't wrong.

    I was listening to some music on Youtube recently- some of the groups and artists I'd never heard of had more than thirty million hits on Youtube! And some of it was pretty good. And most of it wasn't The other night on TV a presenter said that "we are blessed to have a world class musician with us"- and then introduced a rapper! I don't understand the attraction modern music has for the younger listeners. But then my Dad hated the stuff I listened to, and I tried really hard to explain about the complexities of the guitar playing, the extraordinary vocal abilities etc., etc. But I do reckon that a lot of todays stuff is glitz and high tech hiding a lack of ability. That said, yesterday evening I was listening to one of my favourite old tunes, ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQjqeiQMFUE ) thinking how sweet it was, and my missus sticks her head around the door and said "turn that crap off- your dinner's ready" Some people don't got no soul.

    Times have changed, but even those ladies used their physical charms to sell records.

    It is hard to believe that I ever heard lightfoot sing if you could read my mind, Tim Moore sing second avenue, steve Goodman sing spoon river or Judy Collins sing clouds on the radio. Thoughtful lyrics, beautiful melodies right there on the
    radio.

    Those were all good - but do remember that there has always been a load of awful stuff on the radio - even back in the "golden age".

    True but what harm did yummy, yummy,yummy I got love in my tummy do? Listening to SLAP THAT BI*CH IN HER BIG FAT A** can’t be doing young men any good. I don’t think anyone would argue that there was a beautiful song played on the Grammys. Anybody even know what 3/4 time is?

    Ha! That was the first song that came to mind for me! I agree on the 2nd "song".

    Don't think they won any awards. A local radio host used to do a bit on his show pitting the generations against each other with questions about each other's music. The theory was that nothing defined a generation more than the music they grew up with. Got to be true. What has changed is that radio programming has perpetuated some seriously old stuff on today's generation. Growing up in the 60s, I didn't hear much of Rudy Vallee, but today you still hear the Rolling Stones on occasion.

    Re the op ed. I have relegated the content of such bunfights to the rubbish bin since at least the 1970's. And much of what was there in the 1960's
    Oh I admit there have been a few gems, but not enough to make sorting through the dross worth while.

    Yes they did use their physical charms in their performances.
    However, you should note in all three of the photos you included in your post that:
    THEY ARE WEARING CLOTHES.
    Most of the modern female singers perform in their UNDERWEAR.
    And even these are fairly minuscule at best.
    I once thought I was wrong, but I was wrong, I wasn't wrong.
