recorded or written/composed? because any classical stuff i've got is going to trump robert johnson. otherwise, i'd guess that compilation is the oldest recorded stuff i've got.

good question. I would say go by Recorded Date unless the Written Date is several years or decades before!

Is that possible? Quick, somebody give me an example of a song recorded in the 20th or 21st century that was written more than 100 years back!

Anything else, other than classical? Wait, did music even exist before 1900?

i know next to nothing about classical music, all i know is that i've got some vivaldi my high school choir sang back in 2000 or something. and some miscelanous beethovan, grieg, and probably mozart and/or handel recorded godknowswhen. and bach. i listened to the brandenburg concertos a lot when i was 12. but that was all recorded, you know, later, obviously.

that question isn't for real, right?

hells yeah. the definition of traditional folk is that it's so old no one can remember from whence it came.

No.

I admit I don't know the specifics of what existed before the 20th century but surely I can say I've at least 'heard of' the great composers!

I have always wondered if you took say an album like The Joshua Tree or even Achtung Baby, or Purple Rain or Dark Side of the Moon, or Revolver and so on, and played them in the 1800s or the 1500s etc, what would people think?

Would anyone like it? or would they all think it was devil music and just plain bad? Obviously they wouldn't have anything to compare it against to gain an understanding of it, they certainly wouldnt have had any idea what an electric guitar is

Tis just something i've always wondered.
