MUSIC THAT INFLUENCED "ME" GROWING-UP It has been suggested that I create a musical thread of "my" own. And so I have. Music, as movies, has had a profound influence upon me throughout my life, as I suspect it has for many others. So the "Me" in the title really refers to any one of "US" posting here. My intention for this thread is to provide numerous music links to a host of songs that "We" grew up with and fondly remember. And because we each have been exposed to many different kinds of music I imagine that there will eventually be quite an eclectic list of songs within this thread. And personal anecdotes, information or trivia, about any of the music posted here is both welcome and encouraged. Music like movies is influenced by many things, including social events, politics and war, so though I intend this thread to be relatively apolitical and personal, it may stray into the politicized arena every now and then if that is what the music is about. But please no political rants. As others have pointed out, Musical taste is highly subjective and one persons favorite may be "lousy" to someone else. And that's okay, so long as we respectfully agree to disagree and politely allow each of us an opportunity to share as much or little as they choose. I may not personally like some of the music that others will be posting here, but I welcome exposure to different things. And I enjoy being informed and enlightened by the experience of others. And I hope that you will likewise. The music posted will not be in any chronological order of life, but rather bounce around a bit. Allow the music to lead where it may, from one song and life experience to another. So it may jump from post to post, from a silly childhood tune, to songs that our parents used to frequently play when we were kids, to songs recalled from adolescence, and beyond. Songs that made us laugh, songs that made us cry, and songs that made us think about other possibilities. Songs that consoled us, and music that inspired us. Any song or music that we had (or still have) a personal connection to is welcome.
