It was violent. I loved "classical" music from as early as I remember. In my teens I loved the Beatles up to about 1968, and a lot of of other oldies. And still do. After around 1970 I had given up on Rock as I saw its coming death.
Oh, I do! I'm constantly listening to my beloved Beatles on the new digitized CD's. Linda loves Elvis. Her favorite 1960's group is The Lovin Spoonful: [link] and we both love so many of the "oldies" that we take them with us on drives. One cannot escape the music that he loved as an adolescent.
Yeah, your teen girls. My girls as teens knew what I would like of their finds. And what not to make me listen to. Older daughter had as her favorite Bruce Springsteen. A few of his I like, but there's something about his music I just can't remember in my mind his melodies. I hate his "Born in the USA".
