#1LinerWeds from Adam Neely

I was watching a video called “Why pop music sounds bad (to you),” presented by bass guitar teacher and music commentator Adam Neely, and he said something at 3:37 that had me thinking, “I have my one-liner!”

Watch the whole thing. It’s really good.


One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word from Atari, who wishes you a Happy Holiday!

  1. Yep, seems most parents didn’t like their kids music. I like most types of music, even rap, but depends on the song. But, classic rock is my fav and always will be. Rock on!

  2. Some music, it’s not that I don’t like it. I cannot make myself like it. I used to enjoy C&W, but lost that taste bud somehow. It seems what I like best is what was popular in my 20s. Some from that time I have never heard, but I like it. As far as generational taste, it is more than music that separates us. And millennials? Don’t get me started. 🙂

    1. Rock radio was so bad in Atlanta that I went through a stretch where I tried liking country music. I found that I liked the acts who were around in the ’50’s and ’60’s (Johnny Cash, Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, Patsy Cline, etc.) but not the current artists, who have injected too much rock and pop into the music. Sadly, most of what the radio stations played was current artists. I liked the rock from the ’80’s, and even the pop, because that was a happy time. Whatever they’re playing on the radio now, I don’t especially like…

  3. I have to agree with that statement if he excludes classic rock, Motown, classical, etc… but include rap crap, boy bands and all those teenyboppers. Classic ad even though I was never into those kisses

    1. I skipped the Hershey’s Kisses commercial (the first one on the reel) because that’s still being used. You’re right, it is a classic, and one of our favorites: wer know Christmas is on its way when we see that one. Hershey’s has a website where you can make videos of the bells and give them different voices at http://playthekisses.com. That said, unwrapping the Kisses is a lot harder than it looks when you’re trying to do it one-handed…

      The point Adam makes in the video is that every generation likes music that previous generations hate. Our parents hated The Beatles, our grandparents hated jazz (or parents’ music), etc. That’s not to say that rap and boy bands are any good, just that it’s the kind of music the kids two generations up (our grandchildren’s generation, if we had them) are growing up listening to.. Weird, huh?

      1. The Adam video but agree both are good. And wouldn’t you know it, this morning someone called in a favorite song and when asked why she picked it, she said “I am a child of the 80s” I thought hmm, bet she was 12 or 13 when the song was released.
