My daughter (about whom I am not allowed to speak of here for fear of disownment) often says her taste in music – the fact that she listens to James Taylor, the Eagles, etc. – is based on the fact that I insisted on playing that music when driving her around. If I were a bitter mother, I would point out that I was spending every freaking weekend driving her across the country to horse shows and most of the time in the car she was sleeping and I was driving, but I’m not like that.
I think U2 has filled Madison Square Garden. But they started in 1976 so maybe that doesn't count, but I think of them as an 80's band. And, I was in love with Davey Jones too--but none surpassed Bobby Sherman, because he sang "Julie, Julie, Julie do you love me?"
As usual, a fun read and another one that hits close to home. My daughter grew up with an appreciation of “our” music too. And, I got to see the Monkeys in concert when I was in first grade. Dave’s Jones was my heartthrob. I still have all of my vinyl from the 70s. Does that make me cool or does that make me a hoarder?
Such a fun read! I agree --- but perhaps Madonna???? ;)
