what kind of music did your parents/parental figures listen to when you were growing up? do you think it influenced your taste in music?
I've noticed that a lot of people in my age group inherited a whole 80s rock nostalgia thing that I totally missed out on. my mom was a) slightly snobbish and b) kept up with newer music even though she was older so I was a lot more influenced by 90s alt rock. older than that she liked REM, violent femmes, Elvis Costello, that kind of stuff. I realized the other night that my boyfriend has a very limited knowledge of rock music, his mom listened to more soul and r&b and the only rock album he had in his house was Fleetwood Mac. I tried to give him a little history lesson.
anyway, post videos of your childhood music too! it'll be fun!
