Stick with what you know, or take a bold step into the future?
Place your bets now please.
2000 - 2009 accounts for about 80% of what I listen to anyway
Though it would be a wrench to give up a lot of stuff...
I can't imagine not being able to listen to all the stuff that I already love. Besides, there is a massive amount of music made in that time that I've not listened to.
If I can keep American Football, I'll change my answer
would I actually be *committing* myself to listening to anything pre-1978?
But nowt released after 31st December 1999.
that span 200-2027?
all hell will break loose. ALL HELL I TELL YOU.
Dammit! I want the future, but giving up the past is such a steep price to pay.
How much time do I have to make a decision? Can I get back to you in, say, 40 years?
I'm the gambling type. I'd have been looking forlornly at a state-of-the-art combined caravan and fondue set on Bullseye, had I ever gone on it.
Though it would hurt to give up my loves.
though... i would be giving up the smiths and belle and sebastian.
there's more there I like and more diversity and modern music is on it's way to confusing and angering me so god knows what I'd be like in 40 years time.
no matter how much you love something, you're gonna get sick of listening to the same old stuff
....does someone have to be to think up a question like that one??
2000-2050; really difficult but most of my favourite Radiohead songs are from this century and that alone swings it.
Plus, think of all the new stuff to come in the next 41 years. I'd miss Joy Division, The Bends, Nirvana, pre-2000 Bjork, Led Zeppelin and the Smiths loads.
The stuff I would feel sad about losing basically adds up to: the first roxy music album, safe as milk, a trip to marineville and the best of diana ross and the supremes.
I spend 95% of my time listening to stuff from this decade.
The second one, because it's fifty minutes as opposed to just ten
If you're pining for the last century dont worry as cycles occur and some bawbags like Wolfmother or Buckcherry will come along and let us know what it was like whilst we're enjoying exploring new things.
i reckon that 90% of the records that i own and buy were recorded between 1965 and 1973. plus i discover way more 'forgotten' good stuff from the past than hear about good new bands. and any good new bands that i do hear about sound like they come from between 1965 and 1973. so yeah, the first.
It's easy for me because most of what I listen to was released after the year 2000 anyway.
music stopped existing in 1977
i'd always have memories of what those old songs sounded like...
