You Cant Touch The Classics
Since exams have ended I've had alot of free time to calm my brain after the almost neverending brainstorm of the last 2 months. So the best way I know how is to fire up the playstation((get lost in a a game) and relax to classic tunes.
I found myself loading my playlists with the classics: Jimi Hendrix, Cat Stevens (Yusuf islam), Bob Dylan, The Byrds, ah-ha U2, Metallica, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins (Thanks QL) and The classical composers. After listening to them I realized that the new stuff out there cannot compare to the classics. They are devoid of and meaning and purity. The songs these days dont carry and message or make one think or appreciate life. They are filled with lyrics that dont make sense and tunes which have been digitally enhanced.
You cannot fault or expect the newer generation of musicians to emulate the past, they only take the old songs and destroy them by remixing them. Most of the stuff we listen to these days will be forgotten relegated to the the graveyard of sound (like justin bringing sexy back... i mean where the hell did sexy go?)
The Classics rock so i leave you to enjoy a true legend Jimi Hendrix (Voodoo Child) playing the guitar like no other could. (For those of you who enjoy the guitar)
