New Old Music

1940 or 2008?

Full disclosure, most of what I've been listening to on the FMA is from the Old-Time/Historical section.  I feel like our ADDified culture has almost completely forgotten about what popular music was in the first half of the 20th century.  The result is that old music sounds completely fresh to my ears.

But by the same token, when I came across Singing Sadie in the Historical section of the site, she sounded...a little fresher.  The music sounded typical enough, but those slightly shrill vocals...And I never expected a lyric like, "You went out and caught the clap. penicillin for you.  Come now, don't be so upset, just 'cause your doggie's dead."  And does that off-kilter tap dance interlude sound quite right?

And then I realized it was a hoax.  Singing Sadie is a post-modernly leaning Aussie in league with the Dual Plover label.  Get it?  Good, right?
