Still Cool

     I know a lot of people whose taste in music has remained what they listened to in high school . Most likely this is because of the fuzzy  memories one associates with the oldies. There is nothing wrong with that. The danger lurks when one is still trying to be a hipster for the third decade. It just ain't going to be. This too is just fine. My philosophy is to like whatever music you like and that's cool. Music is only fun to listen to if you like it. If you don't like it why are you listening to it? Being one's own person and not just in line with the latest trends is coolest of all. What do all the trend setter's know anyway ?Good PR? I say like what you like and listen to what you like .

When I was younger, I listened to classical music, mainly because some subconscious part of me thought that I should like it. But after a few years I realized that with a few exceptions, I didn't actually enjoy it.

Most of the music I listen to now was written before 1995. But I'm not snobbish about it. Occasionally I'll hear something contemporary that I like. Sometimes things are just too catchy, like Gangnam Style.
