    Totally agree. Most modern music has no melody, no harmony and very bad lyrics. Unfortunately, so many good musicians are no longer with us; Elvis, Freddie Mercury, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Alvin Lee, Jimi Hendrix, Van Morrison, Janis Joplin, Buddy Holly, too many to name.
    Also watch and listen to Midnight Blues on Facebook for soothing, slow Blues videos.

    I seem to remember my mother saying something similar from roughly when I was in my twenties...

    Makes me wonder - just how far back do we need to go to call something "old school"?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    I think our parents, grandparents and their generation were not too comfortable with the style of modern music. They were used to trumpets and pianos and all of a sudden there's this guitar thing that makes a lot of "noise". They got used to it as the music was still good. Listen to the music of the 60's, mostly all backed by a full orchestra. Many Beatles and other pop and rock numbers are still being played and recorded by philharmonic orchestras.
    But now please tell me how in hell do you write notation for rap? These guys do not even know the 8 musical notes or understand any of the musical symbols. Hip hop is just as shallow and most of these so called artists cannot even play a musical instrument, not even a tambourine! The problem today is DJ's and radio stations who promote rubbish and make kids believe its cool.

    Watch and listen to Midnight Blues on Facebook. Like!!

    Each generation has its musical characteristics. 'Love,’ has being the epicenter of literature, art and music for centuries. The drastic alteration of this status quo is a paradigm shift in the Twenty First Century. My opinion to popular music in the twenty first century is simply ??~@$%$$%&WTF!!!???

    The Pre-Modern legal Philosopher, who reigned between 423 – 348/347 BC, wrote extensively on the oncological event we call love in his Symposium. Shakespeare, who reigned between 1554 and 1616, wrote extensively on love.

    The 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s used the very same formula. Suddenly, something just happened or appeared in the form of present popular music that cannot be reconciled with previous centuries.
    ‘In 1985, Coca Cola tried unsuccessfully to change their formula, branding it “New Coke”. This lasted three months before they re-released “Classic Coke” and later scrapped the new formula altogether due to overwhelming public outcry, a shining example of the power of love.’[1]

    For me, personally, I prefer ‘silly little love songs’

    You Are:1983: Lionel Richie: Lyrics and Video

    Video[2]


    Baby you'll find
    There's only one love
    Yours and mine
    I've got so much love

    And needing you so
    My love for you
    I'll never let go
    I've got so much love

    All I want is to hold you
    Let me show how much I love you baby (show you)
    I don't mind and I don't mind (loving you)
    Girl I love you
    There's no one above you

    [Chorus:]
    You are the sun
    You are the rain
    That makes my life this foolish game
    You need to know
    I love you so
    And I'd do it all again and again

    Tell me it's true
    I can't believe you do what you do
    I've got so much love
    And my love you'll see
    We'll stay together, just you and me
    I've got so much love

    Only you (know me)
    Tell me how to love you baby (show me)
    I don't mind and I don't mind (tell me)
    Girl, I love you
    Always thinking of you

    Let’s do it again: Staple Singers: October 1975: Lyrics and Video

    Medicus MG, Vos Liber prosperissimus.



    Do it again, do it (do it)
    Lets do it again (do it)
    Mmm (do it again, do it again)
    Gonna do it again (do it)
    Do it, do it
    Lets do it again (do it)
    Do it again
    Sometimes the rain
    Groovin' when I hear the sound
    Like you and me, baby
    Gettin' down with the sounds around
    Oh, the smell of the mornin' flower
    As we pass away the hour
    I want to do it again, do it again
    Do it do it
    Lets do it in the mornin' do it
    Now I like you, lady
    So fine with your pretty hair
    If you don't mind my compliments
    Just diggin? on the clothes you wear
    I'm just a man and I got your fear
    I can love you now I brought you here
    I want to do it again
    (Do it) do it, do it I want to do it again
    Oh, oh, ho, hey, do it again
    Do it, woo, hoo, hoo, hoo
    Do it
    Like a hammer on the block
    Love began to rock

    We are lovers through and through
    And though we made it through the storm
    I really want you to realize, I really want to put you on
    I’ve been searching for someone to satisfy my every need
    Won’t you be my inspiration?
    Be the real love that I need

    [Chorus]
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love
    Someone to set my heart free
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love

    Ooh, when I met you
    I just knew that you would take my heart and run
    Until you told me how you loved for me, you said I’m not the one
    So I slowly came to see all of the things that you were made of
    And now I hope my dreams and inspiration lead me towards a real love

    [Chorus]
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love
    Someone to set my heart free
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love
    I got to have a real love

    [Bridge]
    Love so true, and oh baby, I thought that love was true
    I thought that you were the answer to the question in my mind
    But it seems that I was wrong, if I stay strong, maybe I’ll find
    A real love

    So I’ve tried my best and prayed to God he’ll send me someone real
    To caress me and to guide me towards a love my heart can feel
    Now I know I can be faithful, I can be your all and all
    Ill give you good lovin' through the summertime, winter, spring and fall

    [Chorus]
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love (Real love, real love)
    Someone to set my heart free
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love
    Someone to set my heart free
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love

    [Bridge]
    See, I'm searching for a real love and I don't know where to go
    (Real love, I’m searching for a real love)
    Been around the world and high and low and still I never know
    (Someone to set my heart free
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love)
    How it feels to have a real love cause it seems it's not around
    Gotta end it in this way 'cause it seems he can't be found

    [Chorus]
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love
    Someone to set my heart free
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love
    Someone to set my heart free
    Real love, I’m searching for a real love
    Real love

    Glass Tiger(Featuring Bryan Adams): Don’t forget me when I’m gone: 1986: Lyrics and Video




    You take my breath away, ohh
    Love thinks it's here to stay, ohh
    There's still so much for me to do
    And I can't stop loving you
    Oh, can this be true

    If you could see what I have seen, ohh
    Broken hearts and broken dreams, ohh
    Then I wake up and you're not there
    Pain finds me everywhere
    Oh, but, you don't care

    Chorus:
    Don't forget me when I'm gone
    My heart would break
    I have loved you for so long
    It's all I can take

    You take my breath away, ohh
    Love thinks it's here to stay, ohh
    Still so much for me to do
    And I can't stop loving you
    Oh, can this be true

    Chorus

    Then, I wake up and you're not there
    Pain finds me everywhere
    Oh, but you don't care

    Don't forget me when I'm gone
    For heaven's sake
    I have loved you for so long
    There's nothing wrong

    So, don't forget me when I'm gone
    My heart would break
    I have loved you for so long
    There's nothing wrong

    Bryan Adams featuring Mel C: When you gone:1998: Lyrics and Video


    I've been wandering around the house all night
    wondering what the hell to do
    I'm trying to concentrate but all I can think of is you
    well the phone don't ring cuz my friends ain't home
    I'm tired of being all alone
    got the tv on cuz the radio's playing songs that remind me
    of you

    baby when you're gone - i realize i'm in love
    the days go on and on - and the nights just seem so long
    even food don't taste that good - drink ain't doing what it
    should
    things just feel so wrong - baby when you're gone

    I've been driving up and down these streets
    trying to find somewhere to go
    ya i'm lookin' for a familiar face but there's no one I know

    this is torture - this is pain - it feels like i'm gonna go
    insane
    I hope you're coming back real soon -cuz i don't know what
    to do

    Les McCann: Can’t we be strangers again: 1970: Album- Comment: Lyrics and Video

    If I were asked what is my favourite old school song? I simply have to say: Can’t we be strangers by Les McCann.



    The lyrics are not available on a google search except for right here(as at today’s date):

    I wish that we’ve just met
    And had nothing to forget
    Cause we’ve lost so much already and I’m afraid
    You’ve grown so far from me
    And I want what used to be
    I take back each mistake I ever made
    Can’t we be strangers learning to care
    And feel the look of new love
    The one we used to wear
    Can’t we be strangers again, who knows?
    Once you find yourself true love you never let it go
    Can’t we be strangers learning to care
    And feel the look of true love, the one we used to wear
    Can’t we be strangers again who knows?
    And once you find true love you never let it go

    Now I wanna talk to you baby
    I have a lot of things on my mind
    I wanna say since you’ve been gone
    I just wish there was some way we could get back together again and love each other
    The way we know we can
    We don’t have to be fighting each other
    We have much more that’s going than that
    I tried to make myself, but somehow
    I just can’t make it
    Its hard living here without you
    Its so hard, just so hard
    Cause I love you
    I love you baby please come back to me
    Come on home, and never leave me
    No never,
    No never
    No never

    Shiny happy people laughing
    Meet me in the crowd, people, people
