  • Older MiceChatter Looking For New Music Suggestions

    Here it is...just thought I'd put it out there. I'll be 50 years old in June, and I'm trying to expand my musical horizons. I'm asking some of my younger MiceChat friends for help.
    I grew up with Elvis, the Beach Boys and Beatles, and listened to what they used to call Top 40 radio until about 1980.
    My musical tastes run from ancient (my favorite) Nat King Cole to Motown to what's referred to as 70's classic rock to country (I worked at a country music radio station for nearly 20 years).
    I'd like to start listening to some newer stuff...so I would like your advice.
    What current (or within the last ten years) pop or rock or even country acts do you like or recommend?
    I don't like rap, hip-hop or heavy metal, and lyrics do actually mean something in a song to me.
    Suggestions, please?
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I'm just a hair's breath younger than you and there are quite a few of my faves on that list also. I like music I can sing with. Might I suggest Bonnie Rait, John Mayer, Smash Mouth and the Bare Naked Ladies. I also enjoy the newer offerings of Rod Stewart and Cindi Lauper (a hugely under rated artist). Good luck, hope this helps.:music:

          Try Death Cab for Cutie's new album Plans. The music is beautiful and the lyrics are top notch.

                There are a LOT of great contemporary remixes of older songs. The 3 disc Verve Remix discs are incredible versions of classic songs with a contemporary twist. In that same vein, I love Ursula 1000 for his hip, swanky 60's feel music.

                There's a lot of great stuff out there right now.

                  Ben Harper.
                  I suggest, that you go to amazon.com and type in all the suggestions that you have been given. From there, check out the samples and listen to them to see what you like.

                    Radiobarry - My mother is 50, her partner 58, they both LOVE Green Day, Franz Ferdinand, Seal, Jack Johnson, Sheryl Crow, No Doubt/Gwen Stefani, Melissa Etheridge... just to name a few. They're also into heavy metal, but those are their more "tame" choices.

                      Many excellent suggestions already. I would also add Jason Mraz to the list.

                        There are a few great streaming radio stations out there that I love. KCRW is the best. Try Morning Becomes Eclectic for a great mix.

                        Also, Pandora is also a GREAT way to discover new music. Just type in a song or artist you love and they will start playing things that are related. Sometimes they miss, but sometimes you discover great stuff.

                              If lyrics are important in the quality of a song, then you might like the rock/pop music of singer/songwriter Jason Mraz.
                              www.jasonmraz.com



                              For contemporary standards, try Michael Buble.
                              www.michaelbuble.com

                              Both of these singers have great voices, good melodies in their songs, and wonderful stage presence.
                              Yes, I do LOVE Disney California Adventure. Disneyland is not so bad either ;-)
