I guess I had a similar story. Growing up, my brother and I would sing THe Beach Boys songs with mom. Andy (my bro) and I still like to listen to them every now and then and sing. It is hilarious!

Wow! All of the comments here bring back so many memories! My first record (yep, I said record) was the Beach Boys. I grew up listening to the Bee Gees, Elvis, Willie Nelson, John Denver and of course Dolly Parton. But, the first music I bought was a casset tape...Madonna's 'Like a Virgin' and Duran Duran's 'Seven And The Ragged Tiger'. Such fun days!

Okay, I've answered this question before, but I've never felt quite as dorky about it as I do now...I never had a real "musical" heart throb growing up...my hero was Billy Jack. You know, of the Billy Jack movies? The song, "One Tin Soldier" probably led me into the rebellion of my youth...and I guess I've just stayed there! Lol! I am a "radical" peace activist. Go figure...

I'm sure that's WAAAAAAAAY more information than you wanted...

Beastie Boys were my first love.

I STILL know all of the words to Funky Cold Media! My mom always had music playing around the house, so some of my early influences were Neil Diamond, Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdink. Yeah, that's right, I just admitted that in public.

80's pop music...what can I say? I had young and hip parents in the 80's and that is what they listened to. To this day my favorite song is "West End Girls" by Pet Shop Boys.

Like you, I was first influenced by my parents! Buddy Holly, Lou Christie, Petula Clark, and Johnny Mathis were my parents' faves. Thanks to them, I love all types of music. My first two records (GASP!) were Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and Michael Jackson's Thriller. My first CD was Guns n Roses - the one with November Rain. Now I only use my iPod. My favorite is Jason Mraz's I'm Yours right now.

i believe my first cassette tapes were New Kids on the Block, MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice

When you spoke of New Kids on the Block -I have to tell you that my 29 year old daughter was also obsessed. I took her and her best friend to see them for their 1st concert. She was in 7th grade then. They are still best friends and live next door to each other. My daughter is expecting her second child and last week they went and saw them in concert again! She cried through the entire concert and said she fell in love all over again! So precious! And so are the layouts!

I didn't really get into music until I was in the 7th grade. Back then, it was Duran Duran and Brian Adams that made my musical juices flow! Other classics included George Michael and Heart. Drool buckets...

bianca

Oh my it's gotta be the theme from "The Greatest American Hero". Loved that song!
