    Folks,

    Ok I was just on my way to the bank to make the deposit for my office. Our directory of fiance is out. I seem to get anyone's job who is out, LOL. Anyways I put on "All 70ies Station" on Amazon Prime Music on my iPhone, and it was fantastic, BUT it got me thinking. Was it oldies music? When I was young, IN the 70ies and 80ies we always thought of 50ies music as oldies, BUT I guess times have changed right? And really maybe even 80ies and 90ies music is oldies too, for the younger set?

    So that really got me thinking what is oldies music? Is it set? Does it change with time? What do YOU all think of when someone says lets play some oldies? You thinking Elvis, Fleetwood Mac, Nirvanna, Justin Bieber (j/k), or what?

    Well technically even Metallica is now in the Oldies I believe the definition is 25 years or older. For me I still see 70’s and earlier as oldies.

    It was a sad day when music I grew up loving in high school and college was reclassified as "Oldies"... even worse, when popular songs from the 70's and 80's had been turned into elevator music. But I've evolved... and do enjoy some of today's music... and heck, doesn't Metallica have a new album out? How could they be consider under oldies!!!

    Ha ha, they do have a new album yes, but their first five fall under the blanket grouping of oldies unfortunately. You can it on classic rock stations.

    I see oldies as 50s and 60s music. The 70s music, such as rock, seems to be refered to as Classic. But that may be changing.

    Back in the day, music over 10 years old was considered an oldie, but nowadays, being that radio stations tend to only play music in the top 50, a song can be considered an oldie after a year. Gone are the days when DJs on the radio had the freedom to play whatever sounded good....
