Yea, give me 60's, 70's, 80's music (pop that is not rap or other rubbish)

You could hear the words properly instead of all the shouting that happens nowadays

Also, remember those days didn't have the specialised electronic equipment that gets used nowadays to make everyone's voices sound better on record than listening to them live (that is why they all 'lip sync' now when they tour as they know their voices are crap when they try singing ... and you are paying money just to watch them 'lip sync').

There was feeling put into the songs in those days ... nowadays just speak (won't say sing as do not call it singinging nowadays) the words and get it over with and give me my money

One of the worst song I've ever heard. There were much much better songs than this one!

The famous auto-tune. In our ham radio club, we have someone who can sing really good without help and wrote some original songs. She and her small band has played some pubs here and there and the patrons really enjoyed her singing and some suggested making a record.

She went to a couple of recording studios and was disappointed they used auto-tune and the engineer wouldn't turn it off, telling her it's normal nowadays and needed to make her sound half decent on a mobile device. After almost some time, she found a studio that didn't have the auto thing at all.

As for paying to watch "lip sync," that's if you can see through a sea of phones. Reason I stopped going to most concerts except for one or 2 that makes attendees lock their phones in a special sack only the security has the keys to.
