I was a Neil Diamond fan.
Toss up between "Sweet Caroline" & "Nowhere Man" by the Beatles.

Now.....I absolutely hate Sweet Caroline

I'll arbitrarily define my childhood as pre-rock/pop times...mother's record albums, Burl Ives and Music Man soundtrack...


My father was an opera fan...I learned to sing this song at a very young age...


Brown Eyed Girl

Childhood for me was the 1970s. I have a fave five (or more), or so, but will put Chicago on top for this question...

"Saturday in the Park" Chicago
"Car Wash" Rose Royce
"Sunshine" Jonathon Edwards
"Ticket to Ride" Vanity Fair
"Train in Vain" The Clash
"Year of the Cat" Al Stewart

Clair de Lune was played for me many times as I was born in my grandfathers estate home in 1944. It is my first memory of music and still my favorite.


My father built up a large collection of classical music. My brother and sisters (10+ years older than me) had all the popular music of the sixties - connie francis, petula clarke, beatles, etc. That was the eclectic mix I grew up with. Then when I was 12 in the local town I heard a wailing guitar coming from the local cinema - I listened from the stage door, literally 20 feet from the side of the stage to Jimi Hendrix - a revelation

Nice choice. I absolutely adore Ella - the greatest voice of all time. smile001.gif

@Jnei She does it well. My memory from childhood was from a movie I saw on TV. Don’t remember the movie but remember this song.

@ToolGuy I've been humming this all day today...

@Jnei Thanks for the new ear worm. LOL Now I will be doing that all day!

@ToolGuy If you're going to have an earworm, you might as well make it one as beautiful as this smile001.gif

@Jnei Agreed.

@ToolGuy I used to work with a guy who could sing exactly like Louis. I was technically his boss, and used to order him to sing for me. smile002.gif


Lol Jesus loves me. Lmao

I was never really interested in music when I was little - all my friends were infected with pre-teen adoration of bands like Wham and Spandau Ballet, but although I knew I liked music (I'd built up a small collection of 78rpm classical records by the time I was six, bought with my pocket money from flea markets, and had an old Dansette record player) modern music just didn't do anything for me.

Then, one day when I was about eight, I heard a DJ on the radio announce that the next piece of music to be broadcast was by a German band. I'd been to Germany enough times by then to have some friends there (I sometimes wonder what became of Liesl, Tabita and Anja; I hope they're leading happy lives) and I absolutely loved the country, so I was immediately interested... and then, for the first time in my life, I listened to Autobahn by Kraftwerk. It was exactly the sort of modern music for which I'd been waiting.

Thanks to Kraftwerk, I soon discovered Tangerine Dream and Neu!, who in turn led me to Throbbing Gristle, who pointed me towards Skinny Puppy, who then sent me in the direction of Model 500... and that set me off on the path into the rave/electronica/techno/free party anarchist scene, which led me back to punk... and all that made me the sort of person I am today.


James Taylor, Carolina in My Mind


The theme music from the old Peanuts cartoon shows.
