    0-15...Whatever my parents listen to? 15-20...everything that could be considered rock or metal 20-present...pretty much the same... but I do like pretty much all music... oh, did I mention Raggae?

  • Good Girl or Bad Girl?
    Good Girl or Bad Girl?

    OK this is hard, and definitely just a glimpse, not exhaustive even a little, because it's just impossible to remember this stuff (OFG, I thought you were bad at remembering dates? This is pretty dam good.)

    OK here's my attempt at a timeline:

    0-7: The Beatles, the Oldies station, whatever my mom and dad listened to, Kingdom Melodies

    7-12: The Beatles, Janet Jackson, New Kids on the Block, Paula Abdul, whatever my big sister was listening to

    12-18: The Beatles, No Doubt, Weezer, Green Day, Alanis Morrisette, whatever was poplular on the radio (gag me)

    18-20: The Beatles, The Steve Miller Band, The Fugees, Wyclef Jean, Eminem, everything I listened to in high school

    20-23: Rap and hip-hop, mostly Jay-Z and Biggie

    23-25: Everything and then some (except opera) - always looking for more music to love, currently on my desk at work: The Streets, Outkast, Camera Obscura, The White Stripes, Regina Spektor, 2pac (thanks, OFG)

    I just remembered that Mom and I went to a George Clinton concert once - haha - she made us leave because everyone was smoking pot and she didn't want me to get second-hand high. LOL. What a waste - it was a good show. And a cute boy asked for my phone number. JW moms ruin everything, LOL. (I'm just kidding.)


    0-12 mostly listened to what my parents listened to. They were big on the standards. Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Vic Damone, Louie Prima, etc.

    12-13 brief encounter with disco. AM I the only one that will admit this?

    13-16 Van Halen, AC/DC, Def Leppard.

    16-20 Seriously got into The Doors, The Who, Led Zepplin, Sabbath, Ozzy, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, etc. Also had my bubble gum hair band phase (Bon Jovi, Poison, Dokken, Cinderella, et al.

    21-30 Music turned to dark with grunge, and I stopped listening.

    31 to now. Had a mild country phase. But nothing that is new interests me. I have a soft spot for the guys reinvigorating the old standards, like Rod Stewart. Love opera, and classical.
