I am creating this post because I know that it will be a very short one.
In your humble opinions, can ANYONE predict which
of today's records will become the cherished oldies of tomorrow?????

Did you work on any new one's lately? lol
|By Eli (184.108.40.206) on Saturday, July 12, 2003 - 01:57 pm:|
Thats hard to say Soulaholic.
The biz is so different these days that it hard to comprehend anything as being a cherished oldie, including my own stuff.
And the beat goes on!!

I think the thing that's killing the "oldie" business is oversatuation. I think that the mind can only deal with a song a certain amount of times before it goes from being "quaint" to annoying as hell ! Between the shorter radio playlists to the longer shelf life of CDS (remember when artists HAD to release new product yearly) we are getting burned out on songs a lot sooner. Factor in the EMPTY - V influence of video repeats and you are in NO mood to deal with a song ever again after it's 3 month "burn in"...
Just my "humble" opinion

Well, in the past, the tune that won for "Best Original Song from a Movie" at the Academy Awards was something that was remembered and probably hummed while walking down the street by many people years after it's debut (something like a "The Way We Were", etc).....CAN YOU HUM THIS YEAR'S WINNER FOR "BEST ORIGINAL SONG FROM A MOVIE"?"
I am still waiting to see what the sheet music looks like for that "tune." This is one of the best examples of the decline of music culture in this country....The "creator" of this "tune" grew up in Detroit......
Can you say "Melts in your mouth, not in your hands....?"
|By medusa9e2003 (188.8.131.52) on Saturday, July 12, 2003 - 07:15 pm:|
Maybe something by:Jaheim, Kem, or Donny or maybe India Arie...not so sure!
|By Des (184.108.40.206) on Saturday, July 12, 2003 - 07:36 pm:|
Bobby/ Are u serious about having input here?
Medusa's input reads like she's not sure she should suggest that there is,indeed,some worthwhile music being released.....not necessarily "changing the world" music....but good and getting better with time......as some of the music did that we discuss on this Forum generally...a few faves of mine that have "legs":
Raphael Saadiq (his body of work to date TTT/Lucy Pearl/songs for others..."Fine" for Whitney was immense).
Jam&Lewis (since mid-80's....but I cannot argue with their abilities to stay "current" with Janet and produce a great last album,IMO)
India Arie - seems to have depth and admirable musicality...2 albums in and outlook is good..
R Kelly - Choc City's great,IMO.
Craig David - Voice/hooks/teenstuff...I think he'll improve on what has been a good/great musical start to his career.
I'll leave it there.....I fear I've taken yr post too seriously and I'll see whatcha say next - if anything!!!
|By SB (220.127.116.11) on Saturday, July 12, 2003 - 07:51 pm:|
Is it just me - or should the song by Michael Jackson "Rock My World", been a better hit? I love that song, and IMO - it is one of the best he's put out in a number of years. His 30 year TV special that aired in 2001, was one of my all time faves too, btw.
STUBASS - I just remembered that the MJ special is on my all time fave TV special list, along w/the Sammy Davis Jr. one.
|By JoB (18.104.22.168) on Sunday, July 13, 2003 - 04:05 am:|
...LOL (but sadly agreeing) with you all...
...but to answer the question, I don't know, maybe some R. Kelly or Mariah Carey (the OLD, 90's Mariah Carey) stuff, a couple of Jill Scott songs, some Dru Hill, and countless one-hit wonders (too many to try and think of)...I know it's no Motown, or Aretha, or Al Green, etc., but hey, that's all we got :o)
|By Eli (22.214.171.124) on Sunday, July 13, 2003 - 08:52 am:|
I still cannot imagine any record out there right now that would hold up as a cherished "oldie" in the same manner as those we know and love and the basis of this forum.
The current consumers IMO, are too fickle and artists and songs seem to be forgotten about in the blink of an eye, so to speak.
Certain artists and songs may be the flavor right now but the mindset of most of the younger listening audience and the nature of the times in which we live seem to dictate a "here today, gone tomorrow" kind of attitude.
That is only my opinion, I could be wrong.

hey lost in soul..I wish that you would take your s**t elsewhere, thank you.
I think that you are a complete jackass.

Your original " ZZZZZ " remark was rude and uncalled for. If you don't agree with someone's opinion just say so but please cut the BS.
|By LostinSoul (126.96.36.199) on Sunday, July 13, 2003 - 11:41 am:|
The "Philly Soul Man" did the same thing first in the King of Detroit thread, is it rude when he does it Ralph? He can dish it but he sure can't take it.
|By Ralph (188.8.131.52) on Sunday, July 13, 2003 - 12:07 pm:|
Well I thought you guys were all in agreement on that one. Maybe I'm missing something ( which certainly isn't all that unusual ).OK guys, let's keep it together. Bobby, you cool?

Lost in Shit...you are a total a**hole!!
Please vacate this forum and go elsewhere.
|By LostinSoul (22.214.171.124) on Sunday, July 13, 2003 - 12:55 pm:|
What did I do now?
Everybody didn't agree with Jesus why should everybody agree with you?
Your profanity laced rants are offensive to many but they're afraid to say so.
|By Eli (126.96.36.199) on Sunday, July 13, 2003 - 12:58 pm:|
I am not asking anyone to agree with me for everyone should have their opinion for after all it is just an opinion and mine is that you should go elsewhere!!!!
|By Ralph (188.8.131.52) on Sunday, July 13, 2003 - 01:02 pm:|
Bobby, please cool it. I didn't see anything offensive there at all. it appears Foster was just trying to lighten things up. Guys...my back is hurting too much right now to deal with this. PLEASE!!!
|By KevGo (184.108.40.206) on Sunday, July 13, 2003 - 05:24 pm:|
OKAY! To answer Bobby's question (and to get things back on point, thank you...):
Let's see....today's hits, tomorrow's oldies:
"Hot In Herre" - Nelly
"Independent Women" - Destiny's Child
"New Day Has Come" - Celine Dion
"Crazy In Love" - Beyonce (only because of the Chi-lites sample! )
"Video" - India Aire
"Fallin'" & "A Woman's Worth" - Alicia Keyes
"I Need A Girl" - P. Diddy Featuring Usher
"U Don't Have To Call" - Usher
"Dance With My Father" - Luther Vandross (future classic!)
"Uh-Oh" - Lummidee (back in the day, a tune like this would have been labelled "bubblegum")
"Step In The Name Of Love" - R.Kelly
There's my two cents.....
Kevin Goins - KevGo

Hello again guys n gals.....
I'm relieved to see some input from you,Kev,that I want to believe strikes a note of optimism and I also hope Bobby isn't too jerked around by exchanges with L.I.S.
Some of u may realise I'm a UK resident and often playing catch-up on threads.....earlier today I listened to the Kelly Rowlands CD in the car.I have enjoyed this cd since purchasing a few months ago and,until I read someone enter her to the ranks of "worst singers" on another thread,I hadn't sought to crystallise thoughts on modern-days releases etc etc.
I have been of the opinion for years(that I've yet to adequately articulate) that modern-day performers(like Rowland) whose management/a&r people bring in a team of "hot" producers/writers probably don't have what Bobby,I think,is so p***ed off about - namely,an artistic credibility born out of being musicianly in themselves--they're all shine and little or no substance.
Well,I don't argue that point too much.
What I would say is that I/we can enjoy some exceptionally good,often melodic and well produced music as constructed by these "crack" writers/producers.....sometimes these people go on and have a solo career of reasonable quality (Babyface/Teddy Riley) but they don't have to do this to enjoy their work....and it's often cool to seek them out on cd's to hear them develop through another "front person" of the day.
It may not be as good as the 70's/early 80's but,as I've said a coupla times already on other threads,the times they are-a changed !!!
Bobby,this is no slight on yr valid and emotionally unassailble view(s) - just what I perceive to be a positive overview on what is still good to these ears
