Queen is probably more popular with millennials than boomers for an obvious reason but if you have BR at 1 then you really need more progressive songs on the list. Pink Floyd, Space Oddity, Freebird, etc.I think BR is about the most boomer song to pick after maybe "Stairway To Heaven."
Not sure what "progressive" means in this context. Do you mean prog rock? Or like AOC-type shit?Queen is probably more popular with millennials than boomers for an obvious reason but if you have BR at 1 then you really need more progressive songs on the list.

Yeah, the songs themselves. Bowie himself is impossible to put into a box as one genre but that particular song is one Id expect to be moved up a list if you're pushing up BR for being a roller coaster of talent.You got me on the last two artists. I would never group Bowie or Skynyrd in with prog but I see now that you're talking about those two individual songs. My faux pas.
Wow, Mellencamp and Dylan in the same building at once? That's fucking awesome dude.Big Mellencamp fan. Have seen him live three times. Last time was in Vegas in 2010 when he opened for Bob Dylan. It was a great show.
Not a lot of country or electronic music, either. Although you could debate that maybe they dont belong in a top 25I think it's pretty obvious that whoever put this list together has some pretty clear bias against hard rock/metal. The only one that really comes close Led Zeppelin and Stairway is barely hard rock ... barely.
Heh. Shit homey. It was 1980 when I was kickin it with Jaylynn. I was 17 years old to. We were both seniors in hg sch.Yeah, "Paisley Park" was off of Around The World In A Day. It also had "Raspberry Beret" and "Pop Life" on it too... it was definitely his acid phase. I don't know if I've ever listened to For You in its entirety but I like "Soft and Wet" off of it.
Cool story about your father. There literally exists no radio station like that today. Even if they tried to ironically do something like that, it would never be as strange as all of the songs you listed being played on the same station. I think I'm similar in that I listen to a lot of different music and have throughout my life, but most all of the music I listen to is from different periods of history that I wasn't actually around for. I'm only 24 but I couldn't name hardly any artists today on the radio that I like (with a few exceptions). But I'm always trying to challenge myself and expand beyond my horizons... you can never let yourself get too comfortable listening to music, so I'm always open to new suggestions.
That song you posted sounds like it was made by Afroman's father. Like Colt-45 and two zig-zags Afroman was in the studio when they were cutting that track back in 1980. "That cracker's dick was half my size" lol... If that's the second hip-hop song you ever heard in your life, it's no surprise "The Message" felt so revolutionary.
I'm glad to hear things went well with Jaylynn back in the day, but you've gotta be careful with who you tell about seeing her when she was 17... don't wanna end up as the next Roy Moore figure
Here's another (sorta) hip-hop song from 1980:

I hope to see him before he retires. He just released a new song with Bruce about a month ago called "Wasted Days." It's no "Cherry Bomb" or "Hungry Heart" but it's worth a listen IMO.
