My house has three generations living together, the youngest is 14 and the oldest is 67.  Each night at dinner (yes we eat dinner together every night) we take turns selecting music.  Sometimes we aren't thrilled with the selection, but we do agree not to judge and enjoy the music.  It is amazing what range of genre we go through from classical music and opera, to international music, pop, rock and folk as well as country, bluegrass, and anything else you can think of.  My only thing is when I get told that they want to listen to "oldies" from the 90's.

 

For me the playlist would have to include the original Mickey Mouse Club open and close themes.  That brings back memories.

For me and my family here are a few songs we all groove too: Imagine by John Lennon, Everyday People by Sly and the Family Stone, Believer by Imagine Dragons, Born this Way by Lada Gaga, Stand and Deliver by Mister Mister, Arlington by The Waillin Jennies, Bring me to Life by Evanescence and finally Hurt by Johnny Cash. We've jumped around, danced, cried, and shared all these songs together. I'm sure I could come up with more but you get the point, we use music to unite our family across generations with songs that universally talk about the big concepts of what makes us human.

Every generation has their "own" music, so to speak.  I grew up in the '50s but our household listened to all kinds of music, from Hank Williams to Elvis

, from Big Band Glenn Miller to classical.  The '60s had the British invasion and I loved much of the music that came from there, Moody Blues, Rolling Stones, Loving Spoonful!  If you were to try to mix your music with the younger generation, you might have Imagine Dragons, Ed Sheeran, and Katy Perry!  Even great older singers such as Tony Bennett duetted with pop singers (Lady Gaga was divine!) which shows that even today's singers recognize good music from any generation.

That's an interesting question. I also listen to a lot of classic rock, especially British rock. What I've noticed on YouTube is a lot of young people discovering bands from the late 60's, 70's, and into the 80's. There are a lot of comments that say "this music is great" or " why don't we have music like this?" We were so fortunate to have so many talented musicians and song writers to grow up with. 

 

And then, look at the longevity of bands like the Rolling Stones who appeal to all ages. Recently, Deep Purple commented on how their audience changed from being a sea of gray hair to having crowds of young people in front of the stage. They were blown away by it.
