The year music died was 1989

Postby [FnG] Hanno » Sun Mar 17, 2013 9:19 pm

It went down hill from there, very quickly , the majority of my music is pre 1990 with perhaps just 3 or 4 songs after that.


Going back a few years before then, I was born in a pretty good year for music,
as far as I can tell the following were releases/hits:

David Bowie - Life on Mars
Don Mclean - American Pie AND Vincent
Rolling Stones - Brown Sugar
Alice Cooper - Eighteen
John Lennon - Imagine
Led Zepplin - Stairway to Heaven
Issac Hayes - Theme from Shaft
Rainy Days & Mondays - Carpenters
Take me home country roads - John Denver
A horse with no name - America


Raise me some hits from your birth year!

Yes but you were born in 1987 which was a pretty good year:

Pet Shop Boys version of "Always on my Mind"
Tpau - China in my hand
Guns'N'roses - Sweet child of mine
REM - It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
Belinda Carlisle- Heaven Is a Place on Earth
Pogues - Fairytale of New York
and who could forget (or forgive):
The Firm - Star Trekkin'

And last but not least:

See everything went down hill after Eve was born ....

And on a related theme.

Andrea has spent the last few days tidying out her parents house.
This involved filling a skip with 2000+ 1950's - 60s singles (note they were worthless) whilst
listening to her father rant and rave , sob and cry.

If I buy a CD , I can pass that on for my children to throw in a skip.
If I buy an MP3 can I still pass the rights on for my children to throw in a skip?

Hanno, eh? :)

The only guy who will quite happily play video games and do lego animations one minute, but then sound like a (all due respect) grumpy old man the next (We didn't have an ipad/the day music died was 1989) :lmao:

As for the topic of discussion, I used to think the 90's had the best music, until I realised how many more songs I like from 2000 onwards. I think the enjoyment of the music from the past is mainly a nostalgic.

Your probably right, I suspect the music from our youth is always going to sound better.
But the truth is I've been a grumpy old man since I was about 12....

There has been great music since 1989, but the mainstream pulp music has the upper hand. And that rubbish is about all you hear on pretty much every radio station. Sure, there are themed radio stations playing music from the good old days you describe, but they almost play the same songs every day, because those 'golden oldies' are the only one people remember and seem to want to hear. Wasn't there a LOT of crappy music in, let's say, seventies and eighties? I think only the good and excruciatingly bad are remembered in the long run.

You seem to remember a few good ones, Hanno (and a bad one like this link right here...)

NOOOOOOO. I was caught out by my own hook. Saying that I was suspisious and so left my speakers turned OFF!

I agree that there is/was an awful lot of rubbish music in every decade. Most of it is happily filtered out by time.
BUT I'm finding that there is music from the 70's/80's which I wouldnt of listened to at the time,
which I now do - but as I say its mainly nostagia.

I too admit to clicking this link. However, I knew the trap that potentially would befall me. As such, it doesn't count... :crazy: :lollipop:
