With Michael Jackson it was his albums Off The Wall, Thriller, Bad and Dangerous. Wait till you see what happens in the 90s!

Are you watching it stages rather than all in one go?

I understood MJ  Grin
And yes, I didn't have the time yesterday for the entire video. Just watched it now.

I think I understand the 70's and 80's, I'm a bit shocked about the 90', I'm missing my entire grunge and metal puberty, I do not understand what happens in the 00' and 10'.
In the last decade I don't even recognize half of the names, does that make me old, ignorend or just a lover of quality music......

True. However, I can't for the life of me understand how Neil Diamond was so popular!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy


Because my mind instantly made this connection:

*shamefully admits* Probably because I just bingewatched the entire 11 seasons last month.

BTW,
This isn't just exclusive to country music.  This is part of ALL music.  Like I tell my students: Music is life set to rhythm, pitch, and poetry.  This is why it's the greatest of all the arts.

Based on the lyrics I hear, itís stronger, clearer, and plainer in country music than in anything else Iíve heard.  BUT... Iím not the most adept at hearing lyrics in speed-metal, death-metal, or even rap.  My ears canít keep up with the speed of the words.  (Iím horrible at understanding what an auctioneer is saying, too.). This opinion of mine that country music is the clearest heart and soul of life probably has something to do with my background and upbringing, and with my tastes in music.  Everyoneís experience in life is different, and that leads to understandably different opinions on a wide range of things, and can explain a whole lot.  Please forgive me for projecting my perceptions of life on the rest of the world; itís a habit Iím trying to break.

Now, see, I just donít get how you guys donít like country music.  Itís life.  Itís guys and gals telling stories about whatís going on in their lives, and how theyíre trying to deal with the good, the bad, the transcendently beautiful, love, grief, teenage heartbreak, young love, loss of freedom, hanging out with the guys (or gals), frustration with the way society is going... life!

Oh, well, maybe you just donít like the melodies or the voices, I donít know, but if you stop and listen to the lyrics, whether itís YOUR life or not, you have to admit the lyrics are about life.

To each their own, I suppose.  The fact that there are so many genres of music just shows that there are AT LEAST that many genres of musical taste, so I wonít make fun of folks (or at least, I wonít make any MORE fun) who like different stuff than I do.   

That's the thing though, we like what we like as how you like what you like. I'm sure I wonder why you don't like the music I like as well, it's all about musical preference. To each his own

I listen to a lot of music genres and as I've said before, I don't listen to country music and I'm from Texas but I do like a few songs. Just not my thing but I gave it a few chances.

A lot of songs are about life in my opinion, people don't like Hip Hop (real Hip Hop) because they're "too gangsta" but people also need to realize that it's songs made from their perspective, they grew up in violence and are telling a story, life and death. People who don't listen to this genre are quick to judge it and I'm not talking about the modern day mumble rap stuff, I'm talking about actual Hip Hop.

I also listen to a lot of Jazz and neo soul which talks about a lot of life events and tragedy, if you like country, then you'll love those two genres
