  • I agree totally I was a child of the 70's and 80's Idon't care for much past that.Anything from big band swing to jazz to the roots of rocknroll and country is fine with me.The old Southern Gospel is still my favorite .Seems like everything from the past is coming full circle like music clothes ,and cars ,don't figure.I can only hope that the kindness and love that people had for their fellow man prior to the 60's can make a comeback to.Be Blessed and Be a Blessing !

  • Yep, I was a child of the 70's & 80's also. As I was growing up I hated country music. I became a preforming musician in my teens during the late 70's and moved to Texas where I started a band in 1981. We played from San Antonio to Wichita,Kansas. We formed as a rock band, but living and playing in Texas those folks in the rock joints still wanted to hear a few songs that they could two step to. So to keep everybody happy we learned a few country songs...mostly Hank Jr. and George Strait. Somewhere along the way I developed a liking for country music.

    Well I fathered a daughter in 1984 and during her High School years I would often hear her music coming from her room. Like most folks my age I had a strong dislike for rap and hip hop music. I really had never listened to it, but what I had heard of it I disliked. Rap & hip hop was what my daughter liked. So I got a good dose of that music. You know I actually got to where I liked some of it. I would catch myself humming or singing some of the tunes I had heard coming from her room.

    Now I try to stay more open minded about different sytles of music. Especially if I have heard only a small portion of that music. I try to not limit myself by saying that I don't like that particular style of music if I've only heard a couple of songs that I don't like from that style. Usually I find if I keep listening to different artists & songs from those types of music I will usually find something that appeals to me in a genre that I only thought I didn't like.
