. . .
A while back, someone on Twitter — someone who I don’t know IRL and is a relatively recent follower to boot — messaged me and asked the following question: “Am I sort of right in thinking that you have not much listened to music made after 2000 (or earlier)?”
I was incredibly flabbergasted by that question, because, if anything, I’ve been listening to more and more music since the turn of the century as the barrier to discovering newer music has gotten lower. For example, my “1980s” & “1990s” iTunes playlists have about 12,500 songs combined, but my “2000s” and “2010s” playlists have over 14,000 songs combined.
