    BY YOUR GRANDDAUGHTERS.
    I can't say no to them so I'm adding Taylor Swift and other artists in who I have no interest.

    Some of it is catchy but some is cringeworthy. :eek:

    You get used to it. I have a sixteen year old daughter and a ten year old daughter. They like some great music, thanks to mom and dad. But they’re also youngsters. And youngsters love Tay Tay.

    I have daughters who deem it their sacred duty to keep Daddy up-to-date on music. Luckily, they seem to have good taste. I exposed them to a lot of good music when they were growing up, so I guess it stuck.

    I can only think of all the music I've inflicted upon them!

    there's a guy at my work who likes to listen to reggae and house music and some stuff that sounds like clocks and doorbells. He always leaves his spotify open on our i pad and now for some reason it's full of robbie fulks and the meat purveyors:rolleyes:

    Instead of mix 'n mess my stuff I'm 2-3 years into Apple's family plan. It was something the kids really wanted but I love it too.

    My old/own hierarchical folders files still live but the new ways is a big pleasure for the whole family. I like robots helping my listen to new and interesting stuff all the time.

    Don't worry. I can still shout get off my lawn because I have a stick shift car and 1 speed bicycle.

    My kids didn't care for that as I did. I was lucky to have a dad who gigged with his saxophone, thought industrial machines or a Mack truck was music, and he appreciated Frank Zappa. My kids didn't get those genes.

    It works both ways... we shared libraries all the time as they grew up.. they have a really broad taste now and appreciation of 70’s and 80’s stuff.

    On the other hand we cover Taylor Swift and Dua Lipa in the band.. which I’ve never heard outside recording them or rehearsal. Some modern stuff they recommend is bearable.

    When my son was about 5, we went to a Christmas play. When we were waiting in line to go in, he asked, rather loudly, "Do you think they will play some Queen?"

    We got some odd looks. No, Son, I don't think they will. Maybe on the way home.

    Somewhat related...

    About 10 years or so ago, when the daughter was younger, and the 3 of us would go on a road trip, I would get bamboozled into listening to hours worth of horrible auto-tuned rap/hip hop.

    When I would eventually change it to something more neutral, they would both give me crap.

    Finally I had enough.

    My wife has learned not to tell Alexa just to "Play Music" because she is likely to get the response "Playing Blues Rock on Amazon Prime"
