However, my favorite things ever to listen to are 50's pop and rock, and 90's pop/rock. Maybe I'm an old soul? My mom always told me that when I was younger, but I never believed her. I don't know why this is my favorite decade of music (since I don't think you can accurately say the "fifties" is your favorite genre). In the fifties there was pop, rock, and country like today. In my opinion it's like you're discrediting the music since you can't distinguish the different genres from each other in the fact that you call it all the same thing, making you sound ignorant I guess.

I feel like I could add more to this since it seems pretty short. What really got me into the fifties? I've always liked old songs; I grew up listening to classic rock with my dad while we were in the car listening to the radio, and when I was in high school I went through an 80's phase. I'm overjoyed that I managed to pull myself out of it, and I'm much more comfortable with where I am now. Do I know the names of all the songs and albums like many music buffs? Not even close. I can hardly name two albums out of all the people I listen to, but I don't think that hinders me from enjoying a specific genre or musician.
Another artist I listen to is Vienna Teng, who is a folk singer-songwriter, like most folk artists tend to be, or I could be stereotyping. I've been meaning to listen to related artists, but I haven't yet. I probably should sometime today or tomorrow since I only work four days this week. It could be fun venturing out in the music world and finding some more stuff. Now I'm off to find pretty pictures to stick in here so you're not stuck looking at word after word. A picture break between paragraphs is nice sometimes; bye!
