I assume we're talking about very early years here.

My parents grew up in the 50s and 60s, so in my house there was a lot of Roy Orbison, Everly Brothers, Beach Boys, Rolling Stones, Willie Nelson, John Denver, Eagles and Dire Straits going on.

My brother was born in the late 60s, so when I hung out in his room it was all Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rush and whatnot.

When I was really little I tried to go my own path by listening to pop stuff that everyone else listened to. But I also remember my parents listening to a lot of Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Rolling Stones and American standards like the Cole Porter songbook, George Gershwin songbook, Ella, Fred Astaire, Billie Holiday. Stuff like that.

I would say more but I didn't want to say more than the OP, even your title is longer than your opening post.

nysi, I grew up listening to Madonna on THE RADIO. The best Madonna. Her first 3 albums are still some of my favorite pop music.


Also.. INXS, Heart, Prince, The Bangles, Def Leppard, Tiffany, Salt N Pepa, Belinda Carlisle, J. Geils Band, Midnight Oil, Huey Lewis and The News, etc., was a mid/late 80s child.

I've been pained by this practically since birth.

I can't seem to find a lot of value in music from the past 30 years, because there's subtle differences in production quality and nothing sounds organic or "real" anymore; nothing has really connected with my soul the same way music from the 60s and 70s has.

Definitely. I adore not just the music, but the whole vibe of that era. I was meant to be born then, I swear it! I've been watching a ****ty Australian drama this week called Love Child which is set in Kings Cross 1969 and I just want to be saturated in everything I see - the music, the fashion, the attitudes, the film and tv industry, the cars, the shopfronts, the furniture, the twinge of social revolution, everything. Of course, the show is all about what they did to unwed pregnant mothers during that time, so of course there were equally ****ty times but then but DAMMNIT I want to live in the 60s!

Completely unrelated to what I've just said, but relevant to this thread, I remember grow up listening to the radio and trying to tape (i.e. cassette tape) my favourite songs when they came on, and trying not to let the radio DJ/presenter's voice cut in the beginning or end of the song. Good times.

And you'd think we'd be the type to over-analyze. Get a grip man. Just answer the dam question.

wtf

I'd love to be this age, living on the west coast, in the late 1960s.

I agree with your entire post, pretty much.

I'm never sure if I find most people and things repellent, or if it's just modern people and modern things that are lame and distasteful.

I'll bet cash both is true. I think you'd have found ways to hate most people 50 years ago.
