Ugh. Light "rock" is much more damaging to a young (or old) mind than just about anything. It's about as bad as letting your kids play Grand Theft Auto with the naughty patches loaded in.

oh beeee careful saying you like regular people music here on the interent. there are bloggers about who are downright snooty about their music likes and dislikes. don't dare say you like anything top 40 for fear of being called out and pointed upon. ;)

Frema...I can relate. I grew up listening to the only two tapes that my parents had in the station wagon...some Beach Boys album and Elton John's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2. I won't even comment on the Beach Boys album (I hate the Beach Boys...ok, there's a comment), but I've always had a connection with Elton because of this. The good thing is that I knew how good 'Tiny Dancer' was when I was like 7 years old. The bad thing is that I didn't know 'Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds' was a great cover of a totally fantastic John Lennon/Beatles song until it was way too late.

Oh...remember the George Harrison song, 'Got My Mind Set On You'? ...Yeah....that's good stuff.

*nothing* beats elton john.

i never listened to that stuff when i was younger, either... and my parents didn't even forbid me - it was my choice.

i still don't listen to it.

right on, sister girl.

I sure do, Phil. I sure do.

Other cheesy favorites:

Michael Bolton, "How Am I Supposed To Live Without You"

Anita Baker, "Giving You the Best That I've Got"

Stevie Wonder, "Isn't She Lovely"

Chicago, "If You Leave Me Now"

Phil Collins/Philip Bailey, "Easy Lover"

I could go on and on about Phil Collins, but maybe it's best to refrain. Except its sususudio hard to stop!

How about?

Foreigner - "I Want To Know What Love Is"

Air Supply - "Making Love out of Nothing at All"


i love this song..

My people! I have found my people.

Thank you. To this day, I never knew the actual lyrics of that song.
