My childhood basically consisted of 1950s doo-wop, motown & harmonic groups of the 1960s, disco, and 80s pop music.

Some tunes that make me ridiculously happy because I was a really cool kid and had a nice time with my records, cassettes, and radio:

The Crew Cuts - "Sh-Boom"

Spoiler for just one of many reasons I love brass:


Little Anthony & the Imperials - "Shimmy Shimmy Ko-Ko Bop"

Spoiler for If this doesn't make you glad to be alive, you're hopeless:


Another boss motown track that really takes me back:

Martha & The Vandellas - "Dancing in the Street"



The Mamas & The Papas - "California Dreamin'"

Spoiler for I was born with an affection erection for California.:


Also I just remembered this, which is also groovy. I'm swooning.

The Cowsills - "The Rain, the Park, and Other Things"



I played the everloving life out of this 45. (My parents probably still hate me for it.)

Silver - "Wham Bam Shang-A-Lang"

Spoiler for some garbage:


I also feel it's appropriate to admit that I did take part in some serious Rollermania (I was a little late to the game but whatever) ...

Bay City Rollers - "Saturday Night"



I still love this cover.

"I Only Wanna Be With You"



And I loved the Sweet. (They were cute, too.)

The Sweet - "Poppa Joe"



And a few 80s pop tunes that I was obsessed with:

[more in the undercut]

I still love grooving on this first track (especially when I'm drunk) because it's so full of happy memories. It's such a dumb song.

Kajagoogoo - "Too Shy"

Spoiler for more garbage:


and this:

Dexy's Midnight Runners - "Come On, Eileen"



And this still makes me happy every time I hear it.

The Cars - "You Might Think"



Some years later, I started getting into some harder rock (thanks, Dad) and 80s hair metal, as well as 70s jazz/rock and powerpop; many, many years after that I started into my obsession with psychedelic rock, synthpop/electronic music from the 70s & 80s, 60s girl groups... the list goes on and on, and I could have written for HOURS about all the songs I loved as a kid, but I think this has been adequate.

When does childhood end? When do we stop growing up?

And while you ponder those soul-searching questions I will fire this uninteresting bullet of knowledge at you:

I grew up listening to a combination of mainly bland pop (S Club 7, whatever was on the Now CDs) and the few nuggets of non bland stuff that my dad listened to on cassette (including but not limited to Talking Heads, Dire Straits, Rolling Stones).

I grew up on music most influenced by my parents, who submerged me in their musical interests.

My mum would play the likes of Nirvana et al why doing the housework when I was a kid.

My dad was a huge 60s/70s fan so I also listened to a lot of classics like the Beatles, Mamas and the Papas, Jefferson Airplane, etc.

Good times!

Every day I mourn the fact that I wasn't alive then.

My mother was a baby that day.

Me too! I wish I had grown up in that era. My dad was a teenager when the Beatles came to Australia.
