    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’

    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
