The only things my parents would ever listen to (which in a way I was forced to listen to)
Where jazz like Diana Krall coming from my mom, and Country like George Strait coming from my dad.

What I listen to nowadays is no where close to either of those genres.

Oh, this is jolly good fun

I remember vividly my older brother and I having the old boombox going full blast on the latest mid-ninties pop music, out in the yard while we were swinging on the swingset. We did this so much, I have a few songs and artists permanently etched in my memory. I can remember these particular bands/songs the most (most of these make me cringe, though, when I look back):

Matchbox 20 ("Push" in particular)
Barenaked Ladies
Ja Rule (especially the album Venni Vetti Vecci)
Eiffel 65 (remember-...I'm blue dabade dabadi..) Ah that was just horrid when I think about it
Third Eye Blind
Korn
Kid Rock ("Only God Knows Why")
Smashmouth
Ludacris
Eminem (I wan't allowed to listen to him but I still did. I especially remember hearing "Sing for the Moment" a lot on the radio)

A far as parental influences, I clearly remember:
from mom: Eagles, Prince, Journey, Johnny Cash
from dad: Johnny Paycheck, Willie & Waylon, Creedence Clearwater Revival

Diana Krall is awesome. One of the best modern female jazz singers, and she's married to Elvis Costello.

The music I probably heard more than anything else as a child would be:

Led Zeppelin
Grateful Dead
Rush
Traffic
Jewel
James Tayor
Little Feat
Simon and Garfunkel
Grand Canyon Suite or some classical thing like that

I still think Rush is all right, Grateful Dead are probably my favorite band from before 1975 (except for possibly Jimi Hendrix), and Led Zeppelin are another favorite. Besides that, I don't like most of that stuff. By the way, that's from when I was probably 6 or 7 years old. I didn't get too into music until later though. That's what I think I remember best.

Yeah I'm not to big of a jazz fan but I saw her live, I thoroughly enjoyed it to be honest.

While I was there I was hoping the whole time maybe I'd catch a glimpse of Costello but no luck.
