    Having read through most of the threads on this topic, forgive me if I ask: Was there any, I mean any music prior to 1965?

    Is there anyone here who knows anything, whatsoever, about Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Verdi, Lehar, Vivaldi, Berlioz, Kalman, Brahms, Strauss or Gilbert and Sullivan and Lerner and Loew??

    Or is MUSIC now defined as electronically "enhanced" (i.e. made noisier) noise, accompanied by pictures/images of drug-addicted, guitar-smashing nobodies who would be even bigger nobodies without the electronic amplifier?

    Just asking.

    Of course there was music before 1965. Good music at that

    The real question is has there been any music since 1980 or so?

    FJO, our thread "Oldies" is not limited. We have had contemporary as well as dated music. If that is your love, I recommend that you start a classics thread, or threads that dwell on your favorite Renaissance musician(s).

    We also have a thread of classic works, Then Sing My Soul, America.

    If you like it, start it! :)
