    Do you listen to the same type of music now as you did when you were a teenager? Is it better now?

    I've always been open to all genres of music. I do think as I got older I tend to listen to more music that is not mainstream.

    Absolutely, because the 60's and 70's had some of the best music of all time

    Most (not all) of my favorite musical artists are the same ones I first discovered and fell in love with as a teenager. Their songs really connected to me at that time of my life and I still find great comfort and joy in listening to those songs today - and also what those artists are continuing to produce (if they are still around...) There's also a nostalgia factor, for sure. Being a teenager in the 80s, I even like some 80s music today that I didn't like at the time, because now listening to that music feels familiar, reminds me of the things I enjoyed about that decade.

    There are some modern musical artists I like a lot, but very few of them do I enjoy as much as my teenage favorites.

    I still listen to a lot of the same hard rock/heavy metal bands that I grew up listening to in the 80s... most of whom are still kickin' and occasionally putting out new stuff. (New Iron Maiden album will be out in September! Yay!)
    I will admit that I don't really pay much attention to the newer names in those genres. Much of the so called "modern" metal is too screamy/abrasive for me. I like to joke that I live in a musical bubble which starts around the year 1980 and ends around 1992... most of my favorites came out of that era.
    Occasionally someone will tell me that they're "surprised" to learn that I still listen to hard rock/metal "at my age" (I'm 45), to which I reply, "I must've missed the memo that said I had to start wearing sweaters and listening to the Dave Matthews Band as soon as I turned 30." smile

    Thankfully we have "classic music radio stations" along with iHeartradio and Pandora. You can choose the music format.
    Most of the music I listen to is from my era. I have a lot of greatest hits CDs and assorted music on my iPod as well. Something would have to be a (huge hit) for me to know about it ala "Blurred Lines"

      Each year when Entertainment Weekly counts down their top ten shows, movies, albums, books, etc.. I never have a clue who ANY of the artists are on the  "top 10 singles" list. One year I listened to them all on YouTube, and then wished I hadn't!

      When I couldn't identify who was on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine anymore I knew my time had passed. ha ha
      In much of today's music lyrics aren't important. No one is singing anything thought provoking or something that will be a "classic"

    What an interesting question! I have not contemplated this and it truly is puzzling why I have not. I may perhaps be a minority, simply because I listen to significantly different music now, in contrast to when I was a teenager in the 70s.
    Although I still believe the music of the 70s is indeed entertaining. Especially Neil Young, Strawbs, the Cars, Moody Blues etc. I find myself preferring to listen to modern country and Celtic music and some other genres and artists like Loreena McKennett...
