I remember what most of the groups did that did songs that day preformed even though I can not recall the names of most of my classmates or more than a vague description of what they looked like. Tina Turner's What Love Got to Do With It? (Not my favorite of her songs I prefer Private Dancer) and of course my favorite Beach Boys song Kokomo. That resonates clearly for me as it was done by a group lead by the little boy I had a crush on. *sigh* He was quite dreamy (for a six year old) and we had quite the little friendship until another girl told him I was part mermaid (I mean seriously? I can't even swim)
Moving right along, we'll fast track to my teenage years. I was never really into the "boy bands" that most girls went gaga for. Maybe it was too much time spent with my parents, but I started high school listening to Jethro Tull, Bob Dylan, The Mamas and the Papas, Steely Dan etc. In fact I think it is safe to say that to this day the best concert I have been to was Jethro Tull.
It was however in the hallways of high school, at the hands of a boy with a guitar (playing the opening chords to Enter Sandman by Metallica that my music tastes began to 'widen':
Now, I find new music to love everywhere. When I make I new friend on Facebook, the first thing I do is check out what music they listen to. Here a song in a movie or TV show, I Google it. You find the most awesome and random this way. A great example of this is local Toronto band My Darkest Days (if you haven't heard of them check them out now)
So, I could go on about this forever but I have to go so...what's your favorite music?
