What makes music die and then return back into our lives?

I always found it bizarre how certain trends of music come an go..but they never really die off..Why did the 80's music just come back? Why?? What makes us want to go back and search the past?
I always found in very strange but a great thing. I can't even understand why I like and need certain older fashions..
I guess this goes for many thing like Fashion and film..
Your thoughts?

Is there an elephant's graveyard full of tunes that won't...

quite die? Hmm, interesting thread. Why does some music age more/become more dated than others? Why does one tune make you cringe and another cry?
I think its a lot to do with memories and feelings that the tunes evoke. If a tune had bad memories and feelings attached to it like say an old/ex relationship then, its going to have negative connotations when you hear it. Like I can't listen to most of Massive Attack's Protection album cos it has quite a lot of bad memories of a time when things where going horribly wrong. But other albums/tunes have really good and warm nostalgic feelings attached to them. Thats probably why we always look back, to try and recapture the good feelings we felt when we first heard/saw something.
Wow - now I feel and sound really old!

Because kids hear their parents music

Kids hear their older siblings music and parents music at home.

DJ's are usually parents.

Some radio stations cater to the parents generation.

Bars find money in hosting older music for those not yet married that listened to that music then.

Kids then take it up as retro music for dancing.

Yea, I think too much...lol

Cheers!

80's synth sounds are back in a big way at the minute - especially in club/dance tracks. It sounds quite mental to hear this sound clash of modern synths and production techniques with these classic 80's type sounds. Quite retro but in a cool way

Maybe we are searching for a better time than present?

Does'nt nostalgia colour hindsight?

Yes but who is to say the past is better than the present or future? I don't think its possible to have a truly objective take on the past as nostalgia and wistful reminiscing always get in the way. But saying that, its only natural to pine for the halcyon days of youth....ahh.
