    ….. and grown-up women with beating hearts and fantasies …. Great picks! There are so, so many more to chose from but the selections here are a good representation of the gradual changes and shifts throughout the years. However, the “blueprint” remains the same.

    The two bands that don’t quite fit this genre are CS&N and Buffalo Springfield. Not the strongest reflection of the boy-band formula — particularly the clothing and choreography — or the type of music. … but that’s my opinion….and I’m stckin’ to it….

    Ya know sometimes you just have to shut up and let the music speak for itself. All of these (most excellent) cuts had true craft and emotion behind them. The evolution of the music says a lot about the evolving cultural side of us all too. As much as I hate to admit it sometimes, the world is not that same place it one was (and it will never, irrespective of the swings of popular opinion, go back). But then, that’s cool because being the universal most adaptable beings that we are, we keep striving to evolve the cool things as fast or faster than the evil nasty stuff can. They can take a lot away, but they have never figured out how to stifle the music. And the music is, clear clean and bright, the sound of our hearts.

  4. Pat Blythe Says:

    I agree with Tim. Music has always spoken from the heart …. and soul …. and always has …. and always will. However, one person’s cool is another person’s nasty…. it’s still music, so in essence, it’s all good.
