Do Tupac and Biggie count as oldies?

I listened to Killer and Billion Dollar Babies today, both early '70s. Guess they're oldies.

Still rock, though!

You mean like Devo? Or do you mean Esquerita? Bobby Bland or Rick James? I'm listening to Big Bill Broonzy right now. Good ol' Chicago Blues. Lightning Hopkins was on earlier. Before that, Eric Clapton's self-titled album. But before that, it was Gary Numan and Tubeway Army. I've got The Fun Boy Three on deck.

I play the random records game a lot. Close my eyes and pull a record out of the cabinets. Last night I went from David Bowie to the soundtrack for "The Spy Who Loved Me", which has a killer disco version of the James Bond theme song.

Spun a Todd Rundgren collection a few nights back. "Boat on the Charles" is one of my favorites.

Viva la Vinyl!

Never get a oldies "bug"
I never listen to anything else.

My playlist:
Beatles
Cooper
Uriah Heep
Cheap Trick
Bob Seger
Fleetwood Mac
James Gang
Rush
Rockpile
Reo Speedwagon
Queen
Mott the Hoople

And always my Bubblegum music from the late 60"- early 70's
Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart
Partridge Family
1910 Fruitgum Co.
Tom Jones

And of course Donny Osmond and The Osmonds

and then just a smattering of the 80's

My playlist is full of Bob Seger, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Pink Floyd, Simon & Garfunkel, and The Who.........and I'm 19 years old. Is there anything wrong with that?

Oh. Pleasant Valley Road is a rural, steep road in my area. Since I don't have a picture, I have to settle for a screen capture from Google Maps.
