New Songs from the Old Skool
From the rock/pop sensibilities of the 1960's to 90's grunge, the old skool rockers just won't die. And we're better off for it. They're still making great music.
Here's a few. Bound to be plenty more. If you know of others, let me know.
Rolling Stones - Mess it Up
James - Is this Love?
Charlatans - Just as long as you stick by me
Green Day - Bobby Sox
Kim Gordon - Bye Bye
The Jesus and Mary Chain - Jamcod
Ash - Oslo (This one is a few months old but was one of my favourite tracks of 2023 so including it).
Ed Harcourt - Deathless
Ride - Peace Sign
J. Mascis - Right Behind You
Kylie Minogue - Hold on to now
The Libertines - Shiver
The Beatles - Now and Then
Kula Shaker - Indian Record Player
Wilco - Meant to be
I love listening to new music. Last year I listened to approx. 4000 songs. Admittedly, the vast majority were shit but here are some very good ones.
My most viewed YouTube Playlist is this one. 1.6 million views.
The period in which you came of age, ie a teenager into young adulthood is the one you most relate to in terms of music and it's the same for me. Every decade has something to offer but I would argue that the 60's through to 80's was when everything was created. Since then there's been a lot of going over the same territory.
Yet, I have always listened to new music and will continue to do so.
What period do you relate to? Who are your favourite artists? Love to hear your thoughts.
