I grew up on my parents' music. Don't we all? I can't really remember every album of theirs I enjoyed because they had a rather impressive cassette/CD collection at the time, but here are a few that I can vividly recall sitting down with.

Queen - Sheer Heart Attack * / A Night At The Opera
Pink Floyd - The Wall / The Final Cut
CCR - Green River / Bayou Country
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
ABBA - Gold

* I played tennis racquet guitar to this album.


Then there was that scary period when I began Discovering Music For Myself™. This included a brief interlude with Aqua, Chumbawamba, and The Offspring. I have a feeling I should have never strayed from my parents' stuff in the first place because I've ultimately returned to most of it.

I commend you for admitting to liking ABBA. ABBA is good. It shouldn't be such an 'embarassing' thing to like ABBA. I will, however, be the first to admit that they didn't do themselves any favors by wearing certain kinds of clothing in the 70s.

I was obsessed with ABBA from about 3-6; obsessed with Bruce Springsteen from about 8-11; obsessed with Guns N' Roses from about 15-18; and obsessed with U2 from about 18 til today, at 32.

I dislike Bob Seger, always have. Sorry COBL_04.

What I can remember from the 70s...

Beatles 1962-1966 (red) and Beatles 1967-1970 (blue)
Saturday Night Fever Soundtrack
Grease Soundtrack
Bee Gees
Chicago

that is of course if you call music that you grew up with being your teenage years...

When I was really young I listened to the Dixie Dregs and Jethro Tull... now I can barely remember what they sound like but in third grade I heard the song Discotheque, so from that point forward I grew up on U2

My dad would also play his CDs (and still does)... Velvet Underground, Jimi Hendrix, Beatles, motown...good stuff and I listened a lot to the music he made. he wrote great songs. still does.

I did go through my boy band/pop music period around 5th grade... so I did listen to Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears and all that for awhile. Basically until ATYCLB came out and reminded me why U2 was my favourite band. From that point forward I've had brilliant taste in music

I feel the same way. There used to be a time when I was ashamed for liking ABBA, but I simply can't deny the fact that they created nearly perfect pop melodies. And with all the depressing music I listen to, it's always nice to put on some ABBA to lighten up the mood.

But yes, they really weren't doing themselves any favours:



Why, Bjorn, why? Dungarees and platforms...

I grew up in my very early years on a healthy diet of early Beatles, early Beach Boys and Status Quo - "Rockin' All Over The World"

Britpop and all that started happening when i was about 10 or 11 so i loved Oasis, Pulp and Blur.

(What's the Story?) Morning Glory was probably THE album that i grew up on if i had to choose one

Genesis - invisible touch
ABBA - I do believe all of 'em
Boney M - far too young to recall the exact album(s).
Def Leppard - hysteria
Bon Jovi - slippery when wet
m. jackson - off the wall, bad, thriller
nwa - straight outta compton (oh, the shame!)
brian adams - the one with "heaven"
Andrew Lloyd's stuff - starlight express, evita, cats
george michael - faith

and really badly put together radio mixes on cassette (remember those?)
Oh, I vaguely recall 8 tracks as well in dad's olds

The first time I heard U2 was when I was 13 on holiday in Greece - the video for all I want is you would keep playing on heavy rotation all day, damn annoyingly too. Only five years later was I introduced formally to Achtung.

Oh yeah;
crooners pa used to always have on - humperdink (sp?), sinatra, boone, tom jones

My first boyfriend loved Bob Seger. We used to listen to it together.

Not professionally, just as a hobby. I think he's a great songwriter though.
