You are a cultural throw back and cannot evolve with time if you are not hip enough to recognize the talents of Bieber, Taylor Swift and Geto Boys. They are the Beatles, Bob Dylan and Led Zeppelin of the 2010s./

John McEnroe was so 1980's, nowadays you should be quoting Novak Djokovic. :-)

I am starting to find my music tastes are changing to prefer performers that have great legs, like Angie and Amber

Daryl (1/2 of Hall & Oates) has on old and new performers, and my horizons have expanded. Minus the Bear, Young the Giant, Guster, and Fitz and the Tantrums - my kids are truly impressed when I rattle off those names. I'm kind of proud of myself!

You don't have to have cable to watch this - I believe most can be viewed on the web. The Todd Rundgren episode was especially good, as was Smokey Robinson.

And I've always like classical music, and 40's swing - I guess it just depends on my mood and what I'm doing. Thanks for starting this topic.

Check out the episode with Grace Potter--she's incredible. Such a vocal powerhouse live, too!

i still think the music that came out of late 60's and early 70's was better then anything else that came after that. but with the help of pandora i have been able to branch out to blues and bluegrass and heard some really great stuff!! but yes jimmy buffet still sounds good to me

Those artistic attributes should not be ignored.

I found George Jones 1962 Open Pit Mine on Utube the other day.

It sucked at age 18 third shift in the lumber mill earning college money. Now pushing 70 - it 'ain't' so bad.

heh heh heh -

Haven't read the entire thread, but have noticed my tastes have become MUCH broader over past few yrs. Find myself listening to variety of almost everything at times. Steady diet of any one genre gives me a bored headache.

Jackson Browne - for a dancer
Talking Heads - and she was
Michael Franks - eggplant
Kinks - 20th century man
David Lindley - she took off my romeo's
Julie London - blue moon
Frank Sinatra - the best is yet to come
Mozart - piano concerto n. 18 allerro
Pretty damn good list.

Eleni Mandell - somebody new
Beck - nightmare hippie girl
Ben Folds - annie waits
They Might Be Giants - you're on fire

Another good list
I like artists with a playful sense of humor. In addition to Becks "nightmare hippie girl", I like -

Warren Zevon - the hula hula boys
Bare Naked Ladies - if I had $1,000,000
Deadeye Dick - new age girl
They might be giants - I wish I could sing like a girl
Ken Nordine - you're getting better
