3TC — The Sounds of Music

5F9616AC-5CB4-427A-918A-0E520C4873F2The three men, representing three generations — a grandfather, a father, and a son — were sitting at a table in the Half Note Jazz Club waiting for the night’s first performers to take the stage. They were discussing their musical preferences and some of their favorite artists.

“My favorite band from back in the day was Junior Walker and the All Stars,” Mack, the eldest, said. “They were a really big Motown group in the sixties.”

“My personal favorite group from the eighties was the Electric Light Orchestra, or ELO,” said Mack’s son Jack. “ELO’s sound was a marvelous fusion of pop, rock, and classical. They were great.”

“What about you, son?” Mack asked his grandson, Liam.

“Well, Gramps,” Liam said, “You and Dad may find this surprising, but my favorite musical group spans multiple generations. I’m all about the Beatles.”

Mack and Jack smiled. “That was a politically astute answer,” Liam’s father said.

“So son,” his grandfather said, “when are you going to run for office?”

    What’s really amusing is that the youngsters really are listening to the old rock of the 60s and 70s. They seem to have discovered … tada … it’s better music.

    It really IS better.
