I discovered Ed Sheeran the other day, in my classic tardy to the party style, and he had a line in one of his songs about eventually being forgotten by the crowd. This got me thinking of the idea of lasting value. What recent music do you think the children of this generation will be able to identify? What will become the next "Don't Stop Believin" or "Free Fallin'?"

the problem with old music is we get better at making sounds so all the old music sounds really boring and dated

Nothing because today's music's all the same.

Also probably gangnam style.

This is correct.

So you're assuming that "Free Falling" and "Don't Stop Believing" are examples of longevity? What do you even mean by that? Those songs have been around for what, 30-40 years tops? Let's wait and see if they'll still be remembered in a few decades.

What about the Goldberg Variations or Notre Dame polyphony? That shit's been around for centuries and it's still identifiable. 30-40 years relative to centuries is a drop in the bucket. Heck maybe 50 years from now no one will have any idea who Tom Petty and Journey are.

We need to establish what "longevity" even is. Is there like a quantifiable relationship between popularity and date of composition? By your post you seem to have all the answers so please enlighten us

If you're talking about it from a recording and post-production standpoint, then yeah, that's true. But you can still enjoy the musicality of it that makes it listenable. People of all ages can recognise the hits of Journey, The Beatles, Aerosmith, etc. Is there anything that can have that kind of lasting value made today, in your opinion?

That's a fair point, relativity might cause some confusion. Maybe we could use a few decades as a point of reference?

And new farts keep discovering them and thinking they're great. That's how that works.

Hmm...yeah, I guess that's why most of the Pit still enjoys the Beatles, despite that we're basically a 18-25 demographic.

I like The Beatles but I don't love them. I just think they're decent and listen to them every now and then. There's only a handful of older bands that I really like anyway.

It's pointless to even speculate. We're still transitioning from old to new media.

I attribute certain songs to specific memories so some songs are timeless to me, new and old.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Kings of Leon
Black Keys
Foo Fighters
John Mayer


Thats just what comes to mind initially
Gibson 58 VOS, Gibson Rich Robinson ES-335, Fender Strat, Fender RoadWorn 50's Tele, Gibson LP Jr Special
