I'm only 14 but I remember going to sleep to the I Am Sam soundtrack with all of the Beatles covers.

o and my dad used to play me a lot of Toy Dolls.

don't know why but he did and it stuck.

My parents used to play the same tapes over and over- a couple were Beatles tapes, a bunch of Bruce Springsteen tapes, and Paul Simon. My dad used to listen to random blues too.

My mother was a hippie, and my childhood music memories are of the Beatles, CSNY, and endless, endless,car trips with Lennon's 'Double Fantasy'.

Let's parents tried to get my brothers and I into all sorts of music. The ones that stand out are:
BB King
Stevie Ray Vaughn
Van Halen
And many others...
My mom is a big blues fan, so she played the first two (among others) quite a bit. The last three artists are ones my dad was big into.
As far as what I personally got into as a child...well, I'll admit is was totally into New Kids on the Block for about a nano second. But I gradually started to get into rock as a teen (I used to LOVE Def Leppard! hehe) But the blues music is what has really stuck with me throughout the whole of my life.

So really, my childhood soundtrack is all over the place.
Formerly user nonsubmissivewife, but no longer a wife and never was submissive. Pretty sure those two things have nothing to do with each other though.

I also got Never Mind The Bollocks as one of my first albums, along with RHCP - Californication and Gun's N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction, both not as good in hindsight.

I didn't have any really influence from my parents, they never really listened to music. They had a load of records by Hendrix, Blondie, The Doors and the like but it was never pressed upon me. The one act i got into due to them was Patti Smith after nicking a CD of my mum. I always associate Dancing Barefoot with her.

First album I had in my childhood was probably The Fat Boys (LOL). I don't have it anymore...wonder why.

Best song that sums up my childhood? Katrina and the Waves' "Walking on Sunshine".
