    Agreed. My dentist and GP surgery pump similar rubbish into their waiting rooms.

    For me almost all (not quite all) popular music since 1950 is unbearable. Since 1980 it's criminal.

    Yes, out and about it all seems to be R&B (the modern interpretation) soul (ditto) / X Factor style music. I find much of my new music via 6music and in particular Stuart Maconie. Not everything appeals and some of it is carp but I've discovered some real pearls from folk and jazz to the melting pot where they all combine, prog.

    My dentist asked me what I wanted to listen to during a recent filling so I had the work done listening to the album 'Still Life' by Van Der Graaf Generator a firm favourite though I'm not sure the dentist or nurse knew what to make of it.

    Aside from Bowie my interest waned in the early 80's

    For me the 70's was the most interesting and diverse period.

    Radio 1 is like some kind of torture to my ears these days and though I do listen to Radio 2 I often have to flip it on to Radio 4 to escape some of the more modern stuff on there.

    I was having a hair cut and they were playing that whingy whiner Sam Smith. Had to ask them to put the Jam on or something else. They'd never heard of them..... just young lasses 😋

    Well, thats a pretty "glass half empty" outlook... I was just reflecting the other day how much great music I get to experience without any real limitations via Spotify and Youtube (albeit sound quality is compromised noticeably on the latter).

    There is great modern music for every taste if you open your ears, I would never want to stop exploring, and there is some great home grown talent. I am enjoying Slaves, Idles and Sleaford Mods... not for everyone but dip your toe!

    That Bond theme he ďwroteĒ and subsequently murdered was one of the most genuinely excruciating things Iíve ever heard.

    My response on hearing it was visceral.
    So clever my foot fell off.

    Very few genuinely original ideas in music these days - after all, we do live in a post-modernist society. ie, itís all been done before, and the originals are almost always better than the copies.
