Do you think it's weird to listen to Patsy Cline at my age?

    I've always considered myself and "old soul" in some ways...I'm very fascinated with old-fashioned things. Everything from music, to movies, to the way people dressed and spoke.

    I'm only 20, and I really enjoy a lot of different music, both current and past. I really love all genres (country, pop, r&b, rock, etc). But Patsy Cline is one of my favorites. I mean, sure, it's probably something my Grandparents would like, but I just find her voice to be incredibly beautiful. Her entire life fascinates me, and how tragically she died at 30 years old, having premonitions of her death and all.

    I get goosebumps when I hear her sing, and I really do enjoy her music. Although I have friends/family who like to tease me about listening to her. When they hear me listening to her they laugh. I'm not really embarrassed and couldn't care less about what other people think, but is it that weird for someone my age to listen to someone like Patsy? I know it's probably not the norm, but does anyone else think she has one of the greatest voices of all time, or is it just me?

    Patsy Cline ?? What on earth is wrong with that? It’s great to like something besides tweet tweet boom boom gay bar dance music. You kinda get sick of everything being 120 beats per minute.

    You're not the only one attracted to music from before your time. Problem is that its not before my time.

    I've posted this before because the kid's voice is amazing and amazingly like ... Johnny Cash. He even nails the Tennessee accent. A Mexican boi that somehow gets hooked to Johnny Cash - just amazing

    This is from three years ago when the Mexican boi was only 15



    Your musical tastes make you real interesting.

    Yeah, I think I just got so sick of today's pop music that I just ended up liking someone who is totally and completely different from what we hear on the radio today. Don't get me wrong, Lady GaGa and Usher can be fun to listen to, but everything on pop radio today sounds the same. I think that's why I turned to country. I started listening to more contemporary country singers like Carrie, Brad Paisley, Lady Antebellum, etc and then discovered the older ones like Patsy, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, etc.

    And that kid in that video is awesome.

    Merle Haggard - Mama Tried. Vince Mira is his name and I have can't believe given his age and that he's not from here somehow got into someone with such depth and wisdom as Johnny Cash. My favorite Johnny Cash are probably these three of the dozens of his that I love.

    And you probably know this one well, but just in case, first written and performed in 1966. Probably on my all time top ten.

    This performance was from 2003 I believe, but its the same guys and they're still going at it at nearly 70 ys of wisdom

    I'm hugely into music as you might have just figured out and I have really 'dark' tastes. Just in case you've never been exposed to this stuff, you might want to give it a listen.

    There's nothing wrong with having an eclectic taste in music. I'm much the same way. I like music from all sorts of genres, country, jazz, rock, classical, even bits and pieces of certain operas. So what. It kind of bugs me about people who say "oh I hate such and such type of music" and refuse to even listen. Patsy's great. You know she can sing, Not like most of todays "artists" who can't sing at all without a pile of electronics and auto-tune keeping them in tune. If they had to stand up on a stage and sing with nothing but their voice, they couldn't. It's true. I also think a lot of younger people just don't listen to it because they are actually afraid of being labelled a nerd or loser or something if their friends ever found out, seriously I do.

    Of course not. I'm an old soul as well and I love listening to 'old' music. Just today, as I was driving out of town to a party, and on my way back, I listened to a station that was playing music from the 1930's and 1940's, especially swing music and big band music and it was great.

    And great artists like Patsy Cline, Ella Fitzgerald, and Edith Piaf sang with emotion and meaning unlike so many artists today.
