I don't agree with the tainted and rose-coloured bit. Do people appreciate Bach now because he was putting out hits when they were younger? Those people must be awfully old now.
There is just as much, if not more, of a rose-coloured attitude towards music of the present.
Right now, (or last week), Gangnam Style is/was beloved. Is that not a tainted appreciation? A temporary insanity?
