Email he sent this morning:
Nothing is sacred anymore
Ya ya…. I’m listening to the radio this morning and finding myself endlessly surprised at the need to for today’s youth to anxtify, funk out, classic music. In a period of 45 min I heard a remake of Roxette’s “Listen to your heart”, Maxie Priest’s “Wide World”, Dead or Alive’s “Spin me Round” and to top it off Toto’s “Africa”. How on earth can someone funkify Africa????? I didn’t know whether to laugh or sit in a state of shocked disgust as they rapped throughout the song. The sad thing is that kid’s today will never realize that it is a remake of a very good song…. And that the original was much better.
Yes I’m getting old, but it is sad how much the “pop” music industry is relying on remakes of old songs rather than having enough creativity to make a new classic songs.
As a side note…… the Roxette remake was not so bad, but definitely not as good as the original.
From your aging hubby. :P
Any opinions on the state of today’s music on the radio?
I don’t listen at all, so I have no opinion.
