What kind of music were you listening to 10 years ago? 20? 30?........

  1. Ten years ago I was living in the dorm (ahhh memories!) I remember that my Cranberries CD got a lot of play. ZOMBIE! ZOOOMBIE! ZOOOOOMBEEEEeeeeEEEEE! I used to really enjoy the Barenaked Ladies and Moxy Fruvous (I was a groupie!). Somewhere along the line I think I shifted to country out of bordom, but that didn't last long.

    Twenty years ago, I remember they used to come out with these compliation tapes like "ROCK 86" and such. I lived in the sticks so I didn't have very much access to the mall and music videos and all that, so my 80's vocabulary had a lot to do with what my older sister was listening to. I remember rocking out to Cory Heart's "I wear my sunglasses at night". Madonna's True Blue album and Cyndi Lauper were also on the top of my list.

    30 years ago I was just finished being in utero. I loved music as a kid though. I had a lot of kids records like "free to be you and me" and the Sesame Street records, and free rein on the family's record player (must have broken a lot of needles and made alot of scratches. I used to highjack my parents records that I thought were "for kids" like The Platters, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys. I also remember having a Nestor Pistor 45 (Ukrainian guy who told a lot of dirty jokes) called "Wine Stoned Plow Boy", which I thought was hillarious.

    My musical tastes haven't changed much in 30 years........I still love both rock and country from the '60s, '70s, and '80s. None of this hip-hop or death metal for me, thanks!

    I've been through some phases, but the underlying theme of my tastes has been pop music.

    Ten years ago I was fond of Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, and Tracey Chapman. I was getting over a Classical/Jazz phase where I had been listening to a lot of classical and Jazz.

    Twenty years ago, I was listening to a lot of Contemporary Christian music. I was struggling through some tough times and a major depression and music by Amy Grant, Micheal W. Smith, Michael Card and John Michael Talbot helped me.

    Twenty years ago I was enjoying the end 2nd British music invasion enjoying the Pet Shop Boys and Simply Red. Also back then Whitney Houston wasn't a crack head.

    Thirty 30s ago I still remember well. It was the time of mega sellig albums like Fleetwood Mac, Boston, Framptom Comes Alive. Great songs by Elton John, Paul McCartney and Wings, Paul Simon, Diana Ross, Chicago, Queen.

    Great R&B by Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes (Teddy Pendergrass), the Manhattans, Staple Singers (Let's Do it Again), Ohio Players, Earth Wind and Fire

    30 years ago, was also a time of what I consider an awesome time in music, others will disagree, but DISCO!!! KC & Sunshine Band, Donna Summer, Chic.

    I guess I'll always love the 70s because pop music was all over the radio, unlike today. I still love a lot of music today, but being a child of the 70s I love that music the best.

    How weird is this. I played that CD just yesterday. It's a classic....how can you not get up and dance to "I feel the Earth Move". (in my case, preferrably when I'm alone).

    Ten years ago I was a 15 year old sophomore in high school. I was listening to a lot of rap and R&B music such as the Dogg Pound, LL Cool J, DJ Quik, etc.

    Twenty years ago I was a 5 year old in kindergarten. I was listening to what my parents listened to, which consisted of soul music and primitive early rap.

    Thirty years ago I did not exist. I was born 25 years ago in 1981.

    Today I listen to contemporary jazz, old school, and R&B.
