These songs are in no particular countdown order. I'm sharing my love for mostly older songs with you guys!

There's just something about the pop culture of today that turns me off completely. I really disagree with the way music has taken a turn for the worst. In the 1960's, we had miraculous artists like Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Beatles and Bob Dylan. These artist created the new era of rock and roll scales, along with alternative rock, and what do we have to show for it? Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen? The new artists, if you can even call them artists, have twisted, mended and broken the essentiels of music itself! What do they have to show for it you might ask? Autotune and techno. To me, that's just plain disrespectful! Welcome to my frustration..


  1. Interesting list; do you listen to older musicians as well?

  2. I see you have still not found any music blogs to follow. Here are a few sites that list music blogs that I thought you might find interesting and useful:
