In a sense, virtually everyone feels that way about the era they grew up in, so no, your not alone.

And lots of other peope were happier in the 50s. But was it really any wosre, or better, than than now? I don't know. I'm a lot older now, and I don't live in the same culture as the kids today do, so it is impossible for me to judge.

Yes well i have discovered that the 80s ARE NOT AS PURE AS I THOUGHT THEY WERE!!

I cant believe how many songs I LOVE FROM THE 80s ARE REMAKES OF SONGS FROM THE 40s,50s (Granted they are GOOD but remakes none the less) I was kind of dissapointed...... (I thought in the 80s and earlier,PEOPLE HAD THIER OWN MIND AND MADE THIER OWN STUFF)

The apex of American music was the sixties. It has been down hill ever since. Some of the the songs were actually beautyful...something you would not attribute to modern music.
"Up, up and away" by the Fifth Dimension. Many creative and unique songs that are memorable. Roy Orbison's "Pretty Woman", Dusty Springfield's, "Wishing and a hope 'n", "Downtown", "Born to be wild", "Take five", "Wonderland by night", "Telstar", "The lonely bull", "Walk like a man", etc.
Now, all the stuff sounds the same, with competition to be dirtiest, nastiest, or loudest, and sluttiest.
Then there is the "art form" of rap. Grunts, spits, and other rude sounds performed by street animals that should be in prison.

You may be very right!

I don't know. I think the 70s had some very good music. Yes, Led Zepplen, the doors, the band, Bob Dylan, (actually started in the sixties, yes I know), Mike Oldfield, Peter Frampton, Foreigner, Journey (I've always thought that Steve Perry was one of the best rock singers), Genesis, the Who, Pink Floyd, Boston, Marvin Gay, Santana,Tina Turner, Miles Davis, etc, etc, etc. But even today, there is some very good music out there if you know where to look.

I seem to recollect the '80's. Wasn't that when Mrs Thatcher completed Hitler's work and destroyed Britain? Still, compared with Trump and Brexit I expect that the rule of Ghenghiz Khan seemed good! :)

I'd agree with those who've said most people feel this way about their generation. But, if you're looking for new music that's good, I'd say there's Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Greta Van Fleet, Eric Clapton (still produces music), KT Tunstall, and a host of others.

I too am disappointed with the films that've been coming out: too many sequels and comic book/superhero films. They are mind-numbing, to be generous.
