    Neural nostalgia or neurononsense. These brain imaging studies are oversimplified pseudo-science, IMHO. The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin were just WAY BETTER than today’s garbage.

  2. Careful now, Dan. You’re sounding more and more like our parents, equally convinced that the big orchestral-sized bands and Big Crooners of their era were true quality, in contrast with the noise of our era they labeled as comparative garbage.

    One of our dear friends, Raymond Hildebrand, always reminds us of one of our favorite songs from our youth. Raymond is “Paul” in Hey, Hey Paula. Great Christian guy and also a great athlete!
