Okay, so I'm going back over some of the PJO books, and there's a fairly regular occurrence of the kids not getting the music that their elders listened to. I see it a lot in a lot of fiction.
I just wondered: Is that really all that common?
I mean, yeah, I don't listen to a lot of contemporary stuff now (just lost interest at some point), but when I was a kid, I loved my mom's music as much as my own generations'. I mean, I listened to Madonna and Michael Jackson and Wham and all of the 80s greats, but I liked the Beatles and the Surpremes and Chuck Berry and... well, honestly, I liked my grandmother's big band music, too. I was always pretty into whatever happened to be playing.
I dunno. I guess I don't get the, "Ick, it's not of right now, so I hate it" thing.
