music

Just curious, and since virtually everyone loves music, what is you're fav. Music genre? Fav bands? Fav songs?

I personally love heavy metal, love bands like Slipknot, Mudvayne, Pantera, Lamb of God..etc.
However I love classic rock, Queen, Bad co. Kansas, etc.

I'm also in love with Amy Lee (from Evanescence) voice. Love that band.. yes, I have a soft side lol.

A little bit of everything from The Eagles, Bob Seger, Meatloaf, ELO, Nina Simone, Jennifer Holliday to all kinds of new stuff.  But my favorite music is "Vietnam" music.  Basically stuff that was really popular during that time or that you often hear in Vietnam movies like The Stones "Paint it Black" etc.

that is histerical Selma!  I was raised on Pink Floyd, as well as Moody Blues and a list longer than both arms put together. I was watching the Grammys the other night and actually teared up hearing Glen Campbell sing Rhinestone Cowboy-a childhood favorite that I hadnt heard in a bazillion years. Instantly I was back to the memory of  being in my moms truck on my way to pick up my aunt at the airport...my first time hearing it.  Love how music can do that too you. Pink Floyd just put me back in the living room with all of vinyls scattered around!!!

Cool, thanks for sharing everyone. Music is huge in my family's life. My paternal grandpa sang and played guitar and harmonica (country music) and played at clubs and had one of his songs played on the radio. My maternal grandma played the piano and guitar, although not musically related my maternal grandma was a ballet dancer (professional) and was to travel to Paris for a contract, but then she met my grandpa. Their love story is so awesome!! My grandma (you guys would love her) proposed to my grandpa.. haha. She said she wasn't taking no for an answer. I miss her terribly.. she passed away almost two weeks before my DD. January the worst month ever... now I am way off subject... I tend to do that... ADD anyone?

your G-ma sounds like she was an awesome lady. I miss mine terribly. I loved the stories my Great G-ma use to tell. I dearly wish they were tape recorded so my kids enjoy them. being born in the late 1800s and passing away in her mid 90s meant she saw A LOT of change in the world.  My paternal Gma gave me a love for Neil Diamond. She would blast it while house cleaning, dance with the broom or mop pretending it was Neil. I would always giggle.  My brothers childhood story was of him sitting at the top stair with the earphones (huge for his little head) plugged into my aunts 8 track and singing Song Sung Blue at the top of his lungs. And of course, my Boston Red Sox play sweet Caroline in the stretch.....love family, and music....and the memories!

Thanks for sharing... my gma was a HUGE Elvis Presley and Dolly Parton fan. She was also a huge baseball fan, loved Seattle Mariners and there was a special day called Jay Behner day.. if you shaved off your hair, you'd get a free ticket to the game... Haha, oh... my gma had clippers in hand ready to go to town.. my dad had to stop her and bought her ticket... haha she was a ham, and her laugh.. u would never hear one like it.. it was contagious!! She laughed and loved and was a good hearted woman until the day she died. I still have her toe shoes she wore for ballet and I used them for flowers.. roses specifically, as they were her favorite.
She really was like a second momma to me. I am the woman I am today because of my me-ma....

  Love ur Gma story...my DD is a dancer so that is a nice connection and my Gma played piano for her DH's movie theater...it was Silent movies back then...so that is exciting....only thing is they split up and I never met him.

On my mom's side her dad played violin and I also took lessons and  also took guitar lessons as well, I can play piano  by ear....lol...so music has always played a major role in my life....and again with DD being a dancer, u can not dance with out ur music...lol...she also took piano lessons and has a well rounded appreciation of all types of music.

I did ballet for a short time, I just told DB (dear boyfriend, lol) that I wanted to do ballet again if I ever felt better. Ballet is so elegant, graceful, beautiful. I have always been drawn to ballet dancers. The instructor said I was a natural.. I did cheerleading freshman year but the other girls were mindless idiots so I quit! Lol.

  I loved going to watch my DD dance...not just bcuz it was my DD but bcuz it was just so beautiful....I have an appreciation for it and other styles of dance, and also took classes...but, chiari got the better of me, I could not go to my swing dance class.....

  and ballet is the best thing we could do with chiari as it helps with balance and posture all  things we do need to be mindful of.

My parents were never supportive of anything I did. I paid for cheer camp, ballet, my basketball uniform, cross country uniform... they never went to any of my games or to watch me dance. I also, and not very many people know this about me, I have a HUGE appreciation for Opera music... it gets to me emotionally.. I love love love Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Bette Page, Lucille Ball.. I think I would have loved to have live in the 50s.

P.s. SelmaS, I have all of the Pink Floyd albums and am listening to Comfortably numb.. very fitting! My DB and I collect CDs and we have a little over 1000. Lol.
Blank
620923_tn?1405964489

  I am so sorry, ur parents missed out...that is all I can say there.

My DD and all she did was the center of my world and still is...I only have one child and that may be y, but I also did not want my DD to be a typical teenager that dislikes her mom...so I worked very hard to keep her close.

We love many of the same things, going to Broadway shows,Ballets, and yes, I would love an Opera as well....

We quote lines from movies, many r old ones...some r not so old but classic  in their own right...so a love of the arts.

  I also adore Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany's was a great movie....

  The 50's is deff a period in time I wish I had lived thru as it seems familiar, u know..lol...and I also love the 30's and 40's too, the style of clothes....

As I said my DD has the same taste as I do and this is y she asked me to make her head piece and veil for her wedding, to get just  the right look....
it was not something we could find....
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
Yes, I love the style of clothes in that era as well. Jake is buying us a swimming pool in early May and I am gonna start shopping online for a vintage/retro swimsuit.. lol. There is a shop just down the road that sells retro, vintage stuff... as soon as I can stand longer than 5 mins without feeling like I'm going to pass out, I'm gonna make my DB take me there ;)
Your DD is very blessed to have such an awesome relationship with ya and vice versa.. I will definitely be the same way with my beloved DD...
Blank
620923_tn?1405964489

  I am sure u will have the same type of relationship, it is who u are, and as long as u have these wonderful things to share with ur DD there is no way u will not succeed.

I love going into retro and vintage shops, in fact that is where DD and I found the pin to work her head piece around....
