You hear this all the time whether it is the 60's, 70's 80's and so on. It all depends on you doesn't it. Music connects with memories and emotions and events at the time you hear music. It is a bonding thing much like the smell of apple pie or favorite food.
But if you love music you will expand your selections trying a bit of this and that from blues and r&b to classical to hip hop to jazz. Try different artists along the way. Chances are you will be surprised even if it you like only one song or two.
It is like learning another language. You may not get it right but people will appreciate the effort, especially someone younger or from a different race or country.
And if you do like then do one more thing , dance! Like no one is looking even if they are. Enjoy the moment!
