I was having a conversation a few days ago with a friend of mine who wasn’t allowed to listen to any music whatsoever when he was growing up. He asked me what he missed out on in the 1990’s. I started playing some music for him, I played “Smells like teen spirit” I played “Black Hole Sun” I played “Mr. Jones” all good songs, but none of which blew him away.
Side Note- He had heard all these songs at some point but never knew who sang them and never paid attention to them. For all intents and purposes, these were virgin ears.
Then I played him a personal favorite of mine, “I’ve Seen Better Days” by Sublime. He loved it. He was so excited about it too. It’s like all of a sudden there was a whole new favorite food he could eat that he hasn’t grown tired of already.
