Your parents generation's music.

I'm sure most of you grew up and your parents would tell you how bad your music was, and well, we thought there's wasn't all that hot either. Any songs that reminds you of your parent(s) when you were growing up?

This was one of my mom's favorites.

    I spied a hat upon the rack, where mine had aught to be,
    I asked my wife, who's hat is that?,
    She said "It's a frying pan",
    But a frying pan with a hat band I never before did see"!!!

    I love big band music today. They were really great musicians but I didn't appreciate them in my youth. I have an eclectic taste in music, rock from the 60-70's, my youth,old school C&W, bluegrass, big band, jazz especially Latin jazz, and blues. I like it all With the exception of hip hop & rap. Just haven't been able to wrap my head around it.

    Just a few that I remember. We had one of the console cabinet record players with an FM radio. My mother would play records on Saturday mornings while she was cleaning house and on Sunday afternoon.

    My folks loved watching Lawrence Welk. Sort of like a "big band" variety show for those too young to recall the name. :-)

    There are so many pieces of good music from all eras that when played in many venues today are as good, popular and welcomed by young and old. I love music from all eras, but most of rap and hiphop, well not my taste. I hated big band music when I grew up, but now find it great to listen to, I have a reason, and many older people do, I am legally deaf in the speech pattern, in the big band era the entertainers articulated the words better, and the music was simpler, and I can easily understand it.
    Over all I still love the folk generation but sometimes difficult to understand some artist.
