Brainwashed

Does anyone find that they really like some of the music their parents thrashed throughout their life?

Whenever I'm at a country pub and a song like Sexy Eyes comes on, I'm like, 'OH MY GODZ IT'S DR. HOOK, lets freak it'.

People like Dr. Hook, Neil Sedaka and Suzy Quattro are nothing near the styles of music I generally like, but I love them because of the excess of playtime my parents gave them.

Does anyone else have odd artists they enjoy because your parents abused your ears with their cds?

its a combonation of retroness and atmosphere. sound quallity isnt good, i have to admit because they are so easy to scratch, but that does get made up in atmosphere. its like, vinyls were made when music was cool. rock stars wernt rock stars, they were legends. so its like listening to the ultimate band the way they were ment to be listened to.

and its also a hobby for me. going down to the real groovy store, going through the 2nd hand records. its not often i, or anyone would buy a new vinal, because new artists ones go for about $40-60, and then old stuff from the beatles, pink floyd, led zeppelin and rolling stones go for $140+

Vinyls are expensive and stupid.

Woah, its what they listiened to in the 50's. I doubt I could go around wearing a white sheet and a pillowcase in the Nui or Otara and get away with it because it was all the rage in the 70's.

Back on topic, my parents have brainwashed me... I seem to like most of my dads stuff (Split Enz, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Cold Chisel etc) basically the same **** as Sambad.a

Although I go nearwhere my mums collection (Mainly Robbie Williams, UB40 and The Beat f***ing les)

I used to get annoyed because my Dad played nothing but 60's and 70's rock. I got introduced to things like Sergeant Pepper at quite a young age. I now listen to that stuff as part of my music intake anyway.

So yeah, it must be brainwashing...

the beatles are awesome. ive only just started to get into them, i got there best of album (the blue one, 1967-70?) and songs like revolution, hey jude, and while my guitar guently weeps are legendary.

question: who was the "5th beatle"? although eric clapton played guitar in while my guitar guently weeps (both in the studio and live cut) and was going to take over if harrison left, so who was the 5th beatle, then clapton being the 6th.

If So, i've cheated.

Led Zep, Pink FLoyd, The Who, Queen, Stones, Helicopter...

Your parents music does have s ahuge effect on what you listen to, my granpa played in traditional boer music bands since before I was born, I'm not a fan of it but I feel it has given me a huge appreciation of most kinds of music.

But then the older my dad gets the softer his music gets. Today he likes Bon Anchovie among others

...but that is also why this brainwashing technique works on todays radio, this gnarles barkley song, great as it is it has been played way too much on the radio !!

I'm sure Mick 'Botox Face' Jagger was clean as a whistle.

Pity his band were so overated. Them and The Who are the two most disappointingly overated bands from that sort of era IMO.

Ironically enough I was trying to work out which I would have been the other day (more fun than trying to revise). I wasn't sure. I'd probably have been standing in the middle of the fight selling hot dogs.
