Music To Our Ears.

 

The latest hits for music lovers over 50.

Who amongst us can honestly claim to have never been hurt when we hear our favourite music genres referred to as ‘retro’? Who hasn’t spent hours trying to convince a ‘Belieber’ to give greats like The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin or Nina Simone a listen? And who hasn’t heard soul-crushing music blaring from their kids’ rooms and tried to choke down the three very words we hated when we were young – ‘Keep it down!’? 

As we get older, we stop listening to new music. Because we think everything out there won’t compare to our favourites. Or simply because we don’t have the time to keep up. But studies show that exposure to new music can help keep minds active and stimulated. With music, like with everything else, the more you learn, the younger you stay.

And believe it or not, despite the techno invasion in music that a lot of us loathe, today’s music isn’t just all that. Every song is not the same dhi-chik beat with two words for lyrics. There are plenty of artists influenced by fabulous music from the 60s and 70s. You’ll hear familiar twangs, yodels, riffs, and rhythms. The sounds you love and know all too well. We hand-picked a few of the latest songs and artists to make a playlist that we’re sure you’ll enjoy!
