Some similarities between today and back then are the way both generations share the same passion for music and the way that they want their listeners to feel when they hear the music. They also want to send a message to their fans sometimes by playing different music to match different people's days and moods.


There are plenty differences between then and now. The sad thing about it is that most of the differences we have today are negative. Sometimes some people wish that other individuals could go back to a time when people were not always listening to bad music and didn't care what people thought of what music you liked or how they danced, they were people who didn't care how many people thought they were weird. They were having fun and living life the way they wanted to and that's what was important.
