I've been listening to ABBA for most of my life! My grandpa had all of their songs on his computer and he'd always play them and I've got all of them memorized word for word by now XD

I can't help but sing along whenever I hear an ABBA song on the radio. I don't listen to too much pop music anymore, but that stuff just sticks in your head!

Good music is timeless. It shouldn't really matter when the song was recorded or what time period it's from. Good music never goes out of style. Many songs from the '80's are like that.

Me! I find the songs in the past very soothing to listen to and they even have meaningful lyrics. I'm not saying though that the songs being played at present aren't good but the old songs just don't seem to fade as the years go by. Some of those songs even have their singers long gone but the legacy of their music lingers on.
