Todays music VS our children

I am getting older, happily so. Lost in new technology that I at one time mastered. My biggest concern is, that, I can enjoy , music of my youth , today as I did yesterday. What music are my grandchildren going to cherish when they reach my age. I assure you ( rap my ass) and (bitches and whores) (kill the white man) and any of Miley's songs will NOT survive the test of time..What music will they hear that will bring back a memory of old? NONE of to-days music..and that saddens me greatly as it should you..
