Reminds me that even at a very young age - lyrics were terribly important to me.

Most of us are so caught up in life that we forget to live it.

Same here, especially back when you could understand what the lyrics were.

Back when you could understand the lyrics. Is it really that tough to just make good quality music that I need an interpreter for? Thats just sad!

Making a new playlist for my ipod....stuff like Jim Croce, JT, America....stuff thats just feel good relaxing stuff.....my daughters are catching on a little.

Oh man, Jim Croce brings back some memories. My parents had a big wood console hifi and in the sixth grade I used to listen to their Jim Croce 8 track while folding papers for my paper route. I would walk around delivering papers singing "Operator" to myself, that was a great song.

John Denver, I don't know about him, Lori here likes his music alot, but I think he looks too much like Oliver from the Bradys.

RE: What are you listening to?
When certain songs are played on the radio (and now they're found on the "classics" or "easy listening" stations), there are a lot of memories associated with them. When I hear the Eagles, Supertramp, or early Rod Stewart singing "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy", those take me back to the days when my dad would pick me up from my house and take me to my grandparents' house (where he also lived) for a visit and also the trip back. If I hear "Sister Golden Hair", or "Horse With No Name" or anything by Linda Rondstadt during that time, those memories are from two major trips that I took with my parents, sitting in the back seat of a brown Cadillac. One was to Canada (Edmondton was one of the stops) and the other to Texas & Oklahoma. The popular music from 1987 takes me back to a trip that our youth pastors took the graduating seniors on (San Francisco). You can imagine that the youth pastors weren't driving the cars in which that music was being listened to Smile Then there are songs that were on the radio when I was working during my first pregnancy, and I hear those on the radio and still think of those as "recent" even though it's been 15 years since that time.

Since then, it's been "Barney & Friends" then the Jonas Bros. and Hannah Montana, lol

RE: What are you listening to?
Thats odd Rey - my folks had this 400 tonhifi stereo radio in the bay window. It was on almost constantly and I remember the likes of "Riders of the Storm", Led Zepellin "Stairway", all sorts of John Denver, even heard some Ozark Mountain Daredevils on it. That radio is still in my parents home, and its still tuned in to the same music I listened to growing up.

I tried tuning it to a heavy metal station last Thanksgiving. Mom gave me that "STARE"....you know the one. Just before she would throw a car at me.

RE: What are you listening to?
My parents had radios all over the house. When one of us 6 kids heard a good song, we'd tune all of the radios in the house to it. I swear my Mom went deaf from hearing Closer to the Heart Blasted a bazillion times, and the Immigrant song from Led Zepplin.
She loved John Denver, Perry Como, Frankie Valli. My Dad liked the Kingston Trio, Johnny Cash and a lot of bluegrass artists. They let us listen to whatever we wanted, and sometimes liked what we chose.
