I read a comment on Facebook the other day that no good music has been made since 199X. I scrunched up my nose and said: whaaaat? Funny how people who said they’d never be like their parents have become just like them. Their parents said the same thing about music after the 60s. Music is ever changing. I don’t know whether it’s evolving, devolving, or maybe just revolving, but there is always good music being made and hopefully there always will be.
So much fun of listening to a streaming music service is the discovery of new-to-me music. Take this song, Such a Simple Thing by Ray LaMontagne. It’s a haunting song about the pain in a relationship. The song came out in 2018 but I’ve only just heard it this year. Likewise, I never knew Ray LaMontagne existed until the past 5 years despite the fact that he’s been releasing great songs since 1999. Thank you, Pandora!
