After I DA'd myself I went out and bought the music I had been told to destroy in the past - Queen, ELO and the Eagles. How about you, and what did you get?
Did You Renew Your Music Collection?
Heck ya! Nothing better than old school Motley Cru or Kiss jammin on the cd player when you are cruisin.
I didn't get music..But I did get Tarot Cards and a book called Discover Your Psychic Powers, A Practical Guide to Psychic Development & Spiritual Growth And I will be buying lots more!
When I was studying with the goofball brother, he told me to throw out my Led Zeppelin and Guns N Roses. He told me about how he threw out his Nirvana Unplugged album. I didn't listen to him.
Instead, I just dove more into heavier and more questionable stuff. I picked up a Blue Oyster Cult compilation and fell in love with it. I think it was purely because of the song content and titles:
Cities On Flame With Rock and Roll
Career Of Evil
Burnin' For You
Dominance & Submission
Death Valley Nights
Man, just thinking of those songs brings back memories. All those songs would be "questionable" and "frowned upon", and I loved all of them. They were so anti-JW, it was refreshing. I completely indulged in Blue Oyster Cult around the time of my exit, and continued to do so.
Oh yes! Why not? Your mind asks what if I never got involved with this group? Lets see, where was I when life got interrupted? Oh yeah I was young and hot and looking forward to life and a career!!!
I came in in 1972. I gave up all my music after the pioneer sister went through all my albums!
I even gave up the radio and T.V! Oh I was determined to be holy holy!
Do you realize I missed all the music from 1972----------------2002?????
I met and married a man with a fine collection and he is filling me in on the music history I missed.
Okay, I had to pull out those songs to relive how good they made me feel. Here's some of the "questionable" lyrics:
Transmaniacon MC: "Those who did resign their souls to Transmaniacon MC"
Cities On Flame: "My heart is black and my lips are cold..... My ears will melt and then my eyes"
Career Of Evil: "I'd like to do it to your daughter on a dirt road"
Burnin' For You: "I'm living for giving the devil his due"
Dominance & Submission: The evil way Albert Bouchard keeps saying "Submission! SUBMISSION!"
Death Valley Nights: "Bleached by the sun, and scortched by the moon..... 'tween the horror of space and the terror of time"
Boy, did Satan ever have a good hold on me!
"Do you realize I missed all the music from 1972----------------2002????? "
Look at the bright side: you were spared from Captain & Tenille's "Muskrat Love".
I was lucky. My parents were non-confrontational in this aspect. Plus, by the time I enjoyed any music that might be found objectionable I was mostly out anyway, and was exceptional at hiding my stash. (Had to be as my mother should have been a detective rather than a homemaker. She is always on the lookout for someone to screw up.)

Yes I did. Back in the 80's I threw away about 50 albums which were important to me. You should have seen the "shit eating grin" the "elder" who influenced my decision had when I told him I took his adviced and threw them away. He all but had an orgasm. It sickens me to this day. To think I allowed that effen fat head to cause me to do that. I've since replaced them all with cd's.
