There is plenty of  music out there today that I really enjoy.  Really.  There are some indie singers and rock bands out there right now doing some great stuff.  As far as today’s popular, played-on-the-radio music goes – It’s catchy, you can dance to it (okay, I love today’s music when I’ve been drinking), and sometimes the lyrics even make sense.  And, of course, a good majority of the singers are total eye candy, so it’s fun to watch the videos.  But where has the soul gone?  It certainly can’t be found on most radio stations.  Does anyone out there get goosebumps when they hear Justin bringing sexy back?  Anyone over the age of 16?  How about Telephone?  I love Gaga and Beyonce, but does it really make your chest tighten and pulse speed up, because you know you’re hearing something great?

I’m ever so thankful that several of the classic rock greats are still around, but more than a little depressed over the thought that people my age will never see them at their best, when music still held the promise of changing the world.  Or at least making everyone believe that it might.
