Default Shockingly THIS is now old people music for retirees

Rpm 45 record in the UK from 1977.
This WAS an acceptable song
A song for people approaching age 60:

Nowadays people have changed, we have evolved to build big beautiful walls and to g-rate the genre and style of the song above...it can be no mote graphic than to say “I’m in love with the shape of you” when you get into the nitty gritty of the birds and the bees. In 2018 this is how you must express the emotions of the 1977 song to fit today’s mold

Note: The song from 41 years ago is too progressive for 2018. It may not be appropriate for those under age 25. These are less progressive times.

I think some of the music of the 1970s was more progressive and outlandish than 40+ years later what we have to represent the current decade.

But then again even some 1960s is more outlandish as well, for instance the song Honey Bunny Gal which is an explicit honky tonky song about one-night stands

Well, you tried it just for once found it all right for kicks
But now you found out that it's a habit that sticks

Keep in mind, this wasn't "mainstream" music when it came out. In fact, the BBC and other radio outlets refused to play it. I'm wondering how many radio stations would dare play it today?

2010s I don’t see much of any of this. The reason is that non-mainstream all get thrown into sound cloud and it does a poor job identifying what’s good from what’s just some teens playing a cover on Johnny B Goode. so there’s no cult revivals anymore it’s just mediocre bands that beg for subscribers

That's nothing - I recently went to a festival and heard 80s music being played in an AARP tent.
