Do you consider music released in the 90's to be "oldies"?
1st rule of "oldies" it had to come out before I was born.
They play it on our oldies station so I guess that makes it old but I consider Elvis oldies not 90s but who knows. I know my grandkids would considerate it old LOL
I still listen to Led Zeppelin, Boston, Metallica, and the beatles
Do you want a medal
That was 20 years ago. Yes
I consider music from the 90's to be irrelevant.
50's, 60s are the oldies
Not yet but maybe disco.
We don't say "oldies", we say "throwback"
The oldies are what my dad listened to in the 70s.
This depends upon your point of view. Music from the 70's was the (in my opinion) last real music. All the stuff since then has been wannabe copies, so "music" from the 90's is not old music.
Always the 60. Thats just the year it was coined.
The 90's had awesome music, unlike today's same beat with different worthless words songs!
It's so ancient at this point, how could it not be?
I like to listen Selena and her music sounds so timeless
The Beatles are about the most recent artist that I would even referring to as oldies.
Why couldn't I be born in 1990
Well I mainly listen to 80s and 90s music so no
It should be. In the nineties, we considered music from the seventies to be oldies.
I consider music made prior to 1979 oldies. Everything else is 'new'.
Curse you, under 21 crowd!!!!!
Don't worry. The same thing will happen to them.
Just wait until a Kanye "song" is used to sell life insurance. Bwahahahahaha
Haha! You're right....their day is coming!
Why does every generation keep redefining musical eras? The oldies? What would this generation say "unchained melodies" is now? Ancient super old music?
Definitely. The newest of it is a moldy sixteen years old, and the oldest of it is positively dusty.
No. I consider 90s music to be "good"
I was born in 1997, and I don't think so
60s and older for me, and I'm 16.
Anything from the 1790's is incredibly old
Best decade of music!!!
Cheshire Cat, Dude Ranch, and Enema of the State. Classics.
70's and below
No, something labeled an "oldie" would typically be pre-1970s. (Coming from a 90s kid.)
50's ,60's is what I consider oldies
Me too. Plus the 30s & 40s.
Just think in 50 years taylor swift will be considered oldies and nickelback will be classic rock
Less than that. 80's rock has been considered classic ever since I started listening to it in the mid 00's. I'd say it'll only take another 10-20 years.
IMO, Nickelback will never be "classic" in the same way a band like Soundgarden or STP would be today. Not in the same league.
I dunno, the Beatles were considered a boyband in their own time. Perceptions change. And if there's one thing Nickelback has (despite claims to the contrary) it's popularity.
Nickelback may have popularity, but they aren't any good.
I disagree. I don't think there's a whole lot of variation in their work, but that's true of a lot of fondly remembered musical acts. I think they're at least good enough to be remembered for a couple decades.
It has to be from before 1960! I don't even really think of the Beatles' music as oldies. I think of 1950's music and anything before that.
I'm kinda likin' the way yer thinkin'!... :)
Late 90s no.
No, but I've been asking friends lately when they think it will be considered "oldies".
Any music that comes from 95 AD is old to me.
Lmao. True. And anything BCE is just ancient
I was born in the 90's so if I can say that can out before I was born it's an oldie to me.
I would say 60s or earlier
No. I feel like from the 90s to today, popular music hasn't evolved nearly as much as from the 70s to the 90s. I mean if a 90s song came on the radio it would just fit right in with what's popular today.
That's because there's little to no talent out there making music today, and what they make is crap. Plus, making music isn't nearly as lucrative of a business as it was in the '70's-'90's (buy a CD, tape, record, or watched a video on MTV lately?).
I still buy CD all the time...but not the type of stuff that would ever get played on mtv or radio. I agree with your statement for the most part. I don't agree that there isnt any talent making music though, but the music that is pushed down our throats is basically cookie-cutter, created for the sole purpose of making a profit, rather than making an artistic statement.
There are tons of extremely talented artists making music today, but most of them are destined to dwell in obscurity due to the nature of the music business today.
Yep. The same thing, about "cookie-cutter" music, was being said in the '70s/'80s and many of those tunes still play on radio today, and they're still good. In 30-40 yrs, those songs will still be played, the '00's-today will be forgotten.
No. But I do consider it the best.
Not really, but I suppose it will be some day soon.
Yes, but that's probably because I was born in 97.
I consider everything from when the alternative movement began in the late '70s to be the "modern era."
I think of the 50s and 60s. It's weird to me I hear 80s music referred to as classic rock. I just call music from the last decade 2k jams.
50s is oldies to me, and I'm in the newest generation
God no. That's the newest music I listen to.
Not so much. It's older [ genre] maybe but not oldies. That's from like the 50's or 60's.
Yep. My first oldies vinyl was just 50's and early 60's, and it was only released in vinyl. 😂👴🏻😉
I have a few records... I think my mom got them in the 80's though. Don't have any vinyl.
