Music Oldies?

Ok I am 18 so I consider songs like Thriller and Keep on Trying as oldies but what about you guys that are like 30,40, and 50 who where alive when these songs were made. Do you consider them oldies too or are there songs that your parents listened to that you consider oldies and those others as regulars.

Re: Music Oldies?

I wouldn't consider 80's music oldies. I think the term "oldies" describes music from the 50's & 60's specifically. Beyond that, music is pretty much labeled by their decade...70's, 80's, or by their genre.

Re: Music Oldies?

See you dont consider those oldies because you were alive already. I wasnt so I see those as oldies so when I am 40 or so the things I listen to know will be goldies to me and my kids will see them as oldies as well.

Well, the music might be "old" to you, but I think the actual term means what I described before. I've never heard an oldies station play 70's & 80's music.

Yes the technical definition is probably what you said but I am saying that most people my age would consider those oldies.

I agree with this statement. Sure they may be old to you, or even us that are over 30, but that doesn't make them oldies. Everyone would consider Thriller an 80's song.

Re: Music Oldies?

When does a song transition from being a classic to being an oldie?

It really depends on how you classify the word oldie. I think it refers to a particular era. If I were to describe rock music from the late 70's and early 80's, I would refer to it as "classic rock".

Re: Music Oldies?

I consider the oldies to be music of the infant stage of rock and pop music. Basically, pre-stereo music or AM music. I consider 70's, 80's, or 90's music to be classified just by their decade. I don't consider 80's music old at all. In fact, I believe it's one of the best genres of music.

Re: Music Oldies?

I think of the 50's as basically containing most of the "oldies" music. Acts like Chuck Berry, Franki Valli, early Beatles, early Elvis, etc. The 60s didn't have much in the way of "oldies" in my opinion, that was mostly "classic rock". You had the late Beatles stuff, the Doors, The Who, Zeppelin, etc. The 70s still had plenty of classic rock (Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, Queen), but also a lot of disco. Then the 80s, which you can just call all of it "80s", whether you're talking about big hair bands like Poison or other 80's stuff like the Clash and Michael Jackson.

Then the 90s busted through with all kinds of stuff: grunge (Nirvana, STP, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden), rap really developed, pop sensations like Madonna and Janet Jackson kept going strong, and towards the end of the 90s you had the teenie boppers and boy bands (Britney, N Sync, Backstreet, 98 degrees).

But no, I don't see 60's or 70's stuff as "oldies."

Re: Music Oldies?

I consider "Oldie" to be music played while navigating the Oregon trail by wagon train. Or.......possibly the renderings of Cro Magnon, or Piltdown man

Yeah, "oldies" is the title of the music genre, not any indication of the song's age. My wife's parents (who are oldies junkies) told me that those songs were called oldies when they were new.

See because you guys are older but 70's and early 80's to me would be oldies.

That is a good question.

Re: Music Oldies?

A classic song will always be a classic. Not all oldies are classics, as not all classics are oldies either. There is no transition, especially since one man's trash is another man's classic.
