As you can tell, I’ve been knitting. Knitting is great for the commute, because it means that I can listen to podcasts while I knit… two things at once, good use of time!
Listening to a particular podcast this week, I started thinking about the music that my Dad introduced me to as a kid. Dad had a huge record collection. Well, I say huge… it took up a whole cupboard, so it felt huge, but I have more music stored on my phone now then dad had then.
But, I was curious about how the music that we listen to as kids effects our music tastes as we grow up, so I would love to know the top 5 artists/albums you can remember from your childhood, and the top 5 that you listen to now. My two fives are below, and I would love to hear what yours are.
From my childhood:
- Queen – most of their albums
- Tubular Bells
- Paul Simon – particularly There Goes Rhymin’ Simon and Kodachrome
- Louis Armstrong
- Jonathon Livingston Seagull
- Thea Gilmore
- David Bowie
- Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
I’m not really sure what that means, but I might come to an answer later.
