What do you think? 12 Points Upvote Downvote AskAskMeenjoyingmusicolderQuestion and Answer See more Previous article TIL a study of 200 stand-ups showed that they died young, at an average age of 67.1, compared to actors, 70.7. The funnier they were, the shorter they lived. The funny one in a comedy duo was likely to die younger than the straightman.

Log in to Reply The Lennon Sisters, Peggy Lee, Nina Simone, Dean Martin, Ben E. King, etc Log in to Reply I dunno if this counts as old, but I’ve been listening to a lot of early to mid 2000s R&B/Pop and I’m noticing there’s a lot of songs with lyrics like a mad lib and don’t make much sense but they’re catchy as hell. Log in to Reply The Velvet Underground and Nico. I’ve listened to a bunch of old music that gets called “wild” or radical and for the most part, time has robbed them of their shock value (e.g. London Calling is a good album, but it’s hard to call it “revolutionary” now that every political and musical trend it drew from has faded). This album is one of the few where I totally get why this was extremely advanced for its time.

Music with vibes like ‘Summer Madness’ by Kool & The Gang, I just wish those songs would never end while I’m listening.
