In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Papa Loves Mambo.”
As young as I could remember my mom always played Bob Seeger. Â I think I can sing (I’m tone deaf) every song by heart. Â I also remember Jim Croce and the “Time in a Bottle” album, Janice Joplin and so many more. Â It was Bob Seeger that when I was a teen I had to turn it off right away. Â If a Bob Seeger song comes on the radio I sing along now. Â
My daughter drive me nuts in the car because she constantly changes the stations. Â I mean ever two or three seconds and I wonder how she can even know what was playing because it was so fast. Â If it was a song I like then forget it, it’s gone in less time. Â I’m not allowed to sing along with her. Â Maybe it’s because on road trips I used to subject the kidlets to Great Big Sea. Their music always kept me awake when I was the only driver between me and the two kidlets. Â Once they each started driving they got to choose what was playing on the radio.
My son will play songs from his phone and make me guess the song or artist before the singing comes on. Â He does this quite often to me.
I was in my early 20’s before I became a country music fan but classic rock is in my blood and I have my own favorites now. Tom Petty, Boston, CCR, CSNY, Fleetwood Mac, and the list is endless. Â
Southern Cross by Crosby, Stills and Nash always touches my soul.
Classic rock will always be my history, my soul, my feel good music.
What music shaped you?
