The Greatest Generation Had The Best Music

I’ve heard it said that I come from the ‘greatest generation’ which means I was a kid in the 60’s.

So, keeping that in mind, of course we had the best music back then.

I grew up listening to The Mills Brothers, Nat King Cole, Andy Williams, Dean Martin, and of course all the great stuff that was on the radio at the time, that Generation Blah Blah now calls ‘Classic Rock’.

As if.

As if anyone who grew up on that stuff is now old and shaky and not only confused about what year it is, but possibly re-living it like it’s 1966.

Deja-vue all over again.

Ya, no way.

I’m stuck in the 80’s musically, but I still love my ‘classic rock’. You know, the stuff they will play when I’m in the retirement home.

The Animals, Stones, Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Kinks, The Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, Eric Clapton, Jim Morrison, Jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplin, to name a few greats.

And Motown, I LOVE anything Motown, definitely the best!

Nothing Generation Blah Blah can come up with can even compare. Not even close.

The last time I heard good music was in the 60’s. Everything else is just noise. Everything after 1986, anyway.

Funny how our talented and musically driven generation gave birth to the least talented generation of all time.

Well, let’s see what their offspring can come up with, shall we?

Oh, I can hardly wait.
