Thumpa thumpa thumpa vocoder repeat

I consider myself to be quite the music aficionado so this surprises me not a bit: "Modern music really does sound the same."
The scepticism about modern music shared by many middle-aged fans has been vindicated by a study of half a century's worth of pop music, which found that today's hits really do all sound the same.
It's weird, but I used to love to go to Newbury Comics and browse through the rows of music to fill my collection.  Now I order oddball CDs from Amazon such as Fountains of Wayne and "Bachelor Pad Royale" lounge music.  You can have Rihanna, give me Julie London.
