    With so much junk music lately, people who can't actually sing or others can't play instruments/shallow lyrics if any, what is a song or songs do you think everyone esp. younger people should give a listen to in case they missed it.

    President Nixon once described them as "Young America at its best". The Carpenters. Any of their songs will do, but this is one of my favorites.

    The majority of today's popular music is manufactured with computerization, performers, and lacks any beauty and soul. It saddens me but alas this is the future.

    True musicians and singers are still around but I would have young people listen to Lady day and Satchmo.

    Do not be silly icon_evil.gif Those are artists we will never hear in popular music. I am speaking of today's Bibers and Nicki Minajj type "artists"

    As far as Glee, I think this is one of the best songs they've done. It's deep, great lyrics, awesome harmony, better than the original.

    Fortunate Son by Credence Clearwater Revival

    Lyrically, it's all about "question authority". Musically, it's got one of the greatest hooks in all of rockdom.

    Almost anything by the Beach Boys because nobody writes or sings like that and Brian Wilson was rock's first genius.

    Almost anything by Led Zeppelin or Plant/Page. Rock's best duo EVER!

    I'd Rather Go Blind by Koko Taylor and Jolene by Dolly Parton because every word sung is so nuanced with emotion you can cry.
