That's getting past "pop music stopping", though. I don't think anyone is playing or listening to that as if it's contemporary music. It's more a case of connoisseurship -- more like a certain kind of bar or restaurant playing rare jump blues tracks in the '80s.

But this wasn’t knowing curation, just something on a playlist which sounded like other stuff on the playlist.
It took me a while to notice what it was, because it was part of a homogenize rockish background drone.

Good listening on this topic, for those that can stomach it from Jon Caramanica :
It is weird to think of 1960s rock, or mid-2000s indie, as much more than dad rock now.
I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

Gang of Four from 41 years ago in a rather staid midtown cocktail bar. 1970s Trostky rock had no idea of its future.
I enjoyed them, and was fortunate enough to see them once in a small San Jose club, probably early to mid-80s?
