Subject: What music were you raised with?

Written By: Ryan112390 on 12/14/11 at 11:35 pm

When you were growing up--in your youngest memories, or youngest home movies or whatever--what music colored your childhood? For me, it was a mix of 50s & 60s Doo Wop, the music from Disney movies and the like of course, 60s rock like the Rolling Stones; Folk Rock like Simon & Garfunkel, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Cat Stevens; 70s rock songs like "Rock N' Roll Hootchie Koo", Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses, and the Cranberries. Probably a lot more but that's what I remember and that's also what's on record.

I don't recall my parents listening to much music other than Christmas music,  some Frank Sinatra & Tony Bennett and some stuff from the 50's.

Wow...a LOT!

My dad is as big of a music lover as I am.  As a result, I was raised on classic rock, Motown, classical, folk, and even some New Age music.  When I was in middle school I recorded all of my dad's Beatles records onto cassette tapes.  He has an incredible collection, and still plays his records.  :)

I had a lot of influences from many members of my family.

Mother: Musicals, Big Band.
Father: Classical. Ragtime.
Brother: Demented (BEFORE Dr. Demento.), pop/rock-i.e. Harry Niellson,
Sister #1: Pop/rock-i.e. Beatles, Beach Boys, Motown, Simon & Garfunkel, etc.
Sister #2: 50's pop/rock-i.e. Bill Haley, Danny & the Jrs, etc. 60s, pop/rock-i.e. music from Woodstock, the Carpenters, etc.


So, I grew up with almost every kind of music (except country-but I do remember some country in there but not a lot).

The music that I discovered for myself was New Age & World music (i.e. Irish, French, etc.)

Other than your usual nursery rhymes the earliest songs I remember are Beatles songs...

Strawberry Fields Forever, Hello Goodbye, Obla-Di-Obla-Da, Lady Madonna, Eleanor Rigby all quickly come to mind.

What else?

The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Donovan, Cat Stevens, Muddy Waters, J.S. Bach, The Incredible String Band, Frank Zappa, Bukka White, Pink Floyd, Tchaikovsky, Ravi Shankar, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, James Taylor, Beethoven, The Clancy Brothers, Tom Lehrer, Vivaldi, Mozart, Janis Joplin, Jimmi Hendrix, Smithsonian Folkways ethnic music records, Spanish classical guitar music, early synthesizer music, jug bands, Indian ragas, roots blues, gospel choirs...too much to list, really. 

My father always listened to classical music on the radio, but it was rock 'n roll when my mom or my sisters were in charge. 

Nobody in family liked jazz, but I discovered it for myself later.

In lieu of the usual Disney and Captain Kangaroo records I had Monty Python and the Fire Sign Theater!

Mom: "Why are you listening to the B-sides of the 45 RPM records?"  (early rock-and-roll and R&B)

Foo the Younger: "Because I haven't heard it before!"

Dad: "Hey, this was just as popular as the stuff Mom liked, but she never got into it, and as soon as she's not around, try listening to this!"  (late 60s psychedelic rock)

Dad pulled out the forbidden-because-it-was-'acid rock'-LP of Iron Butterfly, and 17 minutes later, the rest was history.

I was never able to bring "rock and roll" over the hill to appreciate "rock" (which in my day meant "metal"), but I was able to get them to agree on 80s ZZ Top.  Bluesey enough to the recognizable as music to Mom, and enough guitar to be appreciated as music by Dad.  Mom's limit was 80s synthpop (but she didn't quite make it to late-80s Sigue Sigue Sputnik), and Dad's was 90s KMFDM/NIN-style industrial-rock (Huh?  I get the guitars, but why do they sound so angry?)

Thanks for this thread.  Next time I'm in town, I'm gonna spring some dubstep on 'em, just for the lulz.  I'm pretty sure can both handle reggae and dub.  If I set the mix up correctly, I think they might be able to take some 90s/00s DnB.  It's been years since I've thought that it mattered, and now I'm wondering just where their line is.  I'll start the playlist with some harmless UB40 and work my way towards the deep end. :)

My mom liked some of my music.  She hated Depeche Mode, Devo, and Front 242.  She loved Talking Heads, Laurie Anderson, and The B-52s.  It was a tossup.  She did like reggae, which my sister and her boyfriend discovered in LRY.  I didn't get into reggae until later.  I liked mostly trippy dub stuff:  African Head Charge, Mad Professor, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Burning Spear, Creation Rebel, Jah Chaka, and anything from On-U-Sound, but I burned out on it in the late nineties. 

I thought my mom's tastes were coarse and pedestrian.  She like hard rock.  Bob Seger, ZZ Top, Foreigner, Heart...Ugh, I hated that stuff.

I grew up in a very working class, very diversified neighborhood so I grew up with early Rock n Roll, Doo Wop, Italian opera, and Klezmer.  Eventually I tried a little bit of everything, I think it is why I am never say I hate any type of music, there is some good in all of it.  ;)

Even though I was very young in the 80s, I still associate some pop songs from that era with my earlier childhood. A lot of 1984/85 titels seemed not to be very uncommon around 1991/92.

And then of course typical early/mid-90s pop music like Ace of Base etc. When teen pop gained popularity, I was not really into it. In the late 90s and first half of the 00s (mostly the early teens to early adulthood) I listened to very old school 20s, 30s and 40s music because I was so fascinated by the old technology.

Since you listened to Big Bands, you may remember Les Brown and his Band of Renown-that used to play with Bob Hope. Long before he had his Band of Renown his band was called The Blue Devils. My step-father played drums for him at that time.

Before Michael Jackson seduced me, I listened to what my folks played.

My mother was religious and loved gospel music. I watched Bobby Jones Gospel EVERY sunday. I still have a bunch of the gospel CDs she left to me.  And Daddy, who was a drummer and even played with Ike and Tina Turner once in the 60s, loved blues music. I remember being really little and Daddy letting my stand on his feet, and we danced to BB King. Daddy saw all the greats play, BB King, Ray Charles, Muddy Waters, Bobby Blue Bland...a whole bunch. He'd tell me about them all the time.

I also listened to early rap--before gangsta rap went mainstream--an ALOT of soul and R&B. Whitney Houston, Kelly Price...so many people it's reedonk. Motown artists, old doo-wop groups. My taste in music is eclectic and very old. One minutes I'm kicking the Lovin' Spoonfuls, the next, Backstreet Boys. I mean that's me.

Hip Hop - again everyone! I lived for Salt N Pepa

Side story I discovered music "before my time" because of a Franki Vallie & the Four Seasons tape that I found in the street. It was a white & Yellow single of December 1963(Oh what a night). I was hooked immediately after listening. I would stay up late to watch the TIME LIFE collection commercials just so I could hear more music like that.

Once we got cable and MTV and The BOX entered my life--it was a wrap!!!

When I was a child, my parents were in their 20s. So they were pretty much into what was current at the time...'80s music! Back then in the '80s my mother would always listen to music on FM and watch MTV or VH1. So I was raised on that. When I got older and was a teenager I listened to a lot of different types of music, even world music. I listened to the top 40 a lot in the '90s. And also at that time, as a teenager, I grew up listening to '60s and '70s music because of my parents. That is why some people wonder how I know so much about older music and I am just 33. So yeah, it's thanks to my parents for that!<3

I guess coz Elvis represented Rock and Roll. And my parents thought Rock and Roll was bad, evil, all that stuff. Also you have to remember when I was born, no one in America or Canada even heard of the Beatles yet or the Stones.  So Rock was still fairly new when I was born. My dad was born in 1921 and Rock'n'roll didn't happen until he was in his mid 30s.  We usually like the music we heard when we were younger than that.

I grew up with the usual stuff that both my sisters would get their kicks on (Osmonds, Bay City Rollers, all that jazz!)

Then, somewhere along the way, my uncle (Ma's brother) used to play classics from Deep Purple, Eagles and whatnot, which somehow seeped into my mind.

For some reason, I'm not sure why, partway through the 80s, I began going backwards - buying up any old crud I could get my hands on from the 50's onwards - developing a deep love for music from the decades I missed.

In short, I'm not what you'd call intensive in my tastes, but I do have a pretty wide spread...

80s music that was carried over into the early 90s by my 70s born brother and sister. They saved their 80s CDs and tapes, I heard Michael Jackson, Paula Abdul, and Janet Jackson.

I also grew up listening to a lot of early 90s music because I was forced to because my brother and sister were still listening to modern music, modern for then (the early 90s).

Lots of music from 1987-1993 is the music year ranges I remember!

60s pop music such as Gerry and the Pacemakers, and cover band/doo wop artists such as Sha Na Na, but we did not listen to the Beatles or Rolling Stones, and nothing too heavy like Led Zepplin or Cream or anything like that.  Just mostly pop music but I can't remember any specific groups other then Gerry and the Pacemakers and Sha Na Na and some Motown.

Dr. Demento played this one a lot.

60s pop music such as Gerry and the Pacemakers, and cover band/doo wop artists such as Sha Na Na, but we did not listen to the Beatles or Rolling Stones, and nothing too heavy like Led Zepplin or Cream or anything like that.  Just mostly pop music but I can't remember any specific groups other then Gerry and the Pacemakers and Sha Na Na and some Motown.

In the 70s, we would listen to country music and those "trucker" songs that would mostly be someone talking and music in the background such as:

Come to think of it, I should still have the single, somewhere.

...and the parody single from the same time "Convoy GB" by Laurie Lingo And The Dipsticks.

I was introduced into classical music at a very young age by my parents, and the appreciation is still here today.

I think I was, too.

Also, my parents have been involved in the church since I was a young age, so I was also raised with religious music, being exposed to it every Sunday.

My mom let me listen to whatever I want.  I grew up on MTV before it became crap.  But I discovered a lot of what I listen to through the internet.  As far as what I was around.  Well my mom mostly listens to 80s and 90s Pop and New Wave.  Whereas my grandparents listen to Classic Country.  During the 90s they listening to a lot of Mainstream Country which I did enjoy at the time.  I still enjoy good Country from Alan Jackson and a few others but none of that radio stuff out now.  Really the only present music I enjoy now is not radio played.  But growing up I listen to a lot of random things.  Alternative Rock and Goth Rock have always been my top two though.
