A music thread . . .

  1. Well, we have an "average age" thread running right now. I thought it might be fun to see what popular songs some of you most remember and enjoyed from your teenage, "growing up" years. Here's a list of some of my favorites:

    Puff, the Magic Dragon--Peter, Paul, and Mary
    Black is Black--Los Bravos
    Patches--Dicky Lee
    Ebony Eyes--The Everly Brothers
    Foolish Little Girl--The Shirelles
    Greenfields--The Brothers Four
    Lonely Bull--Tijuana Brass
    Town Without Pity--Gene Pitney

    Nope, you won't see any Beatles on my list! I always liked the ballads, and especially the folk stuff.

    OK, Marlin, now tell us about Benny Goodman. :D ;) :p

    I'm a Classical music nut, Pistol. All my collection consists of Beethoven, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Mendelssohn and a little Dvorák, Brahms and Bach.

    I did like the Irish Rovers, some of the Beach Boys, but none of the Rock and Roll. Loved Elvis doing Gospel along with the Oak Ridge Boys and the Statlers.
  3. I was just ribbing you about Benny Goodman, Marlin. :D

    I don't disagree with any of the classical choices you name, though I incline more toward Strauss and Tchaikovsky than Brahms and Bach. I could listen to Beethoven all day, and often do. :D I must admit though, my taste for classical music did not develop until I was in my 30s. As a kid, I was very much into the folks stuff. I still am to some extent, mostly because those old songs bring back so many memories.

    Anybody have XM radio?​


    SQUIZZ
    #48​

    IS​

    WHERE​

    ITS​

    AT​



    Actually XM is really cool, classical for both Marlin and the other Marlin (me) and it's only going to get better when XM and Sirus merge.​

    Pistol I can't really answer your questions about favorite song(s), so I'll have to do it with genre.​

    Blues are great
    Rap is sh**
    Reggia is cool
    Christian rock, soul and others are good
    Country isn't ever allowed in this house.
    Oldies (ya know like 70s 80s LOL:rolleyes: :D )
    Ceberal new age, its like meditation music.



    EDIT:I forgot to say or tell you all that you can get XM via the internet too.​

    Rock and Roll for ever Disco never!

    I was a teenager in the 70's when that evil force called :eek: :mad: disco :eek: :mad: first raised it's ugly head!

    I liked all kinds of Rock and Roll, Bob Seger, Eric Clapton, Boston, Arrowsmith. I liked Led Zepplin for about one year, but don't like them any more. I used to like all the Beatles music, now I only like their early pre-druggie stuff.

    Their are still some new bands making good rock music! Even though I'm 45 it makes me feel young that I can still enjoy some new music. Nickel Back, Green Day, Creed, Matchbox Twenty and other current bands are still putting out good music!

    Cream definitely with Ginger Baker on drums can't be beat. I'm surprised no one has listed 'The Gratefull Dead'. I'm a Deadhead forever.
