    Too old to like new music

    I am well into my thirties ( confession time ) and still love new music. BUT when I go into record shops I feel rather embarassed looking at the newer artists such as Keane, Scissor Sisters, Snow Patrol, Muse, Franz Ferdinand etc. Feel I should be joining the other old fogies in the Country and Western section. So, have now taken to buying CDs online. Is it just me or does anyone else feel intimidated by record stores where the staff weren't even born when you bought your first Police LP.

    I hear ya. The trick, of course, is to stay out of record stores and order stuff from Amazon or download from Kazaa

    But as a fellow 30-something, I still like new music too, Belfastgirl. (Just with the volume turned down a little lower, please. )

    I knew I was in trouble when I would look at the Top 10 songs and not recognize one of them. At best I'd recognize the name of some of the bands.

    Another troubling sign was a few years ago when my local "new rock" (92.3 KRock in New York) station introduced a feature they called "retro cuts" or something to that effect that they used to mix in some 'classic rock' with the newer stuff, and they would play something like "Sweet Child of Mine' by Guns and Roses or something else from my High School or College years.

    Ohhhh, FH, I know that pain, too - I'm like, "RETRO? Whaddaya mean, '80's retro?" Then I realize it was 20 years ago

    I'm in the club, too, guys! I almost passed out when I got my 20-year high school reunion invitation in the mail a couple weeks ago. Yikes! That's not possible!

    My kids laugh at me in the car when I sing to D12 or OutKast. It IS a pretty silly sight to see "Mom" rappin'. LOL! I still love to listen to Howard Stern and watch MTV. Keeps us young, right?

    I love the show "I Love the '80s"! I just can't believe it's been 20 years, though. Great times and awesome music!
