It's interesting how our tastes fossilize. Although I like a lot of genres, I'm into guitar stuff of the 70's most deeply.

Ya, I wonder about that as well from time to time.   As a child in the 80s I was mostly subject to 70s classic rock by my parents, so that's pretty much my default genre.  If I had a choice of listening to only one band, I'd have to go with Zeppelin - not necessarily because they're my favorite, but because they've produced such a broad range of music that can satisfy practically any emotional situation.

By my mid 20s, I felt that my music collection had pretty much everything  I needed to carry me through the rest of life.  I don't even pay much attention to the new stuff coming out from my favorite bands of the 70s, 80s an 90s.

I think, as you get older, you have other interests and when you need a fix of music, you stick with the familiar because you know it will give you what you want.

If it wasn't for youtube, I wouldn't even know I had other interests.  I really like the crossbreeding of genres like electro-swing.

I was also forced into indie music because it fits so well with some of the ads I create.

A delightful Italian number as played by Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss orchestra in Melbourne 2008 at a concert I attended along with 38,000 others.

This had a major influence on me as a child.  My small world suddenly became infinite. . .

I saw it as a teenager in late 80's. It left me stunned and it became a cult film amongst me and my friends.

Here is a new Russian "band" which obviously can be compared to the south african "Die Antwoord" (which sucks) but I thinK they're a lot more significant. I found about their existence a week ago and I think they will be a part of modern music. Irony and kitsch dressed up in modern clothes:

You don't like Die Antwoord? I think you're freaky.

I spent too much time in South Africa to have a „normal” reaction to those Die Antwoord sellouts. Jack Parow is decent:

As I mentioned before, I love the interbreeding of genres.  Here's one of my favorites - Symphony and Metal:

This video inspired me to learn about the use of various mathematical expressions in video and algorithmic animation about 10 years ago.  It surprises me that even today,  people still say that you won't  really need to use advanced math in your life.  There was a recent national commercial for an app.   The video animations in the commercial along with the app itself involved complex mathematics and coding, yet the commercial had a segment showing a mathematics teacher running out on her class saying, "you won't use this anyway."

Anyway, I think this video provides a decent social commentary on materialism as well. . .

 

Humans are weird.

I hear this song in my head every time I enter this forum, or play heads up poker. . .

Love the change up at 2:36.
