Some of my current favorites.
I was informed by a gentleman in my office I was too old to listen to that stuff. What?????? I realize I'm 40, but my life hasn't ended. You don't turn 40 and immediately like elevator music or prefer singer songwriters from the 70's. Oh, and I do like singer/songwriters from the 70's. I love 80's music. But I could listen to Sirius' ALT NATION all day long! I could! Honest to you-know-who.
Who else do I love? Interpol, Cold War Kids, Kaiser Chiefs (love the new single!), The Black Keys, Low vs. Diamond, and MGMT. I also love my classics like The Who, The Clash, Pink Floyd. Great 80's & 90's bands you know the ones you hear on 1st Wave. AND TOM JONES ROCKS LIVE!
I love music and I hate that some - forgive me for saying this - old dude says that now that I've hit my 40's I can't listen to what I like. Go back to your easy listening/elevator music and leave me to discover the latest next big thing.
