Music is the greatest thing

Im not sure about you lot but for me music is the best most wondefrul thing in my life and I love it so much I would be lost without it.
I notice that before I sleep theres a song in my mind and when I wake up again another song. Music is always on my mind.
so I thought id share a couple of my favorites with you.

The who- Baba O'riley




U2- I still havent found what im looking for




Bryan Adams- Please forgive me




Kate Bush- Running up that hill




Phil Collins- Easy lover




Aretha Franklin- I say a little prayer




The Eagles- Take it to the limit




Deacon Blue- Dignity




Lene Marlin- sitting down here




Go west- The king of wishful thinking




The police- Cant stand losing you




Ok so I guess my list is a little long but I could go on all day with this. I think you get the idea.
I realise most of my choices are soft rock and the reason for this is that my dad was in a band and used to play the guitar to put me to sleep, I find it relaxing. Both my parents are very musical people although my mother cant sing nore play an instrument she used to love to sit us kids down and play music from her tapes, we also did a lot of traveling and she'd want us all singing. I grew up with old music and nowadays its hard to pay any attention to newer music as im always focused on the old stuff. And there you just a few from my very large collection, which is all crammed onto two ipods which now have no room for any more.

Talisman's mention of songs to sing to his kids reminded me of this timeless classic originally brought to my attention by MasterSignwriter.



It still gets to me.

Just to say that influences don't always go from the older to the younger. Hi_ImJenny has just about one of THE most eclectic tastes in music I know from someone so young and I quite often nip into her Spotify profile to see who she's listening to.

Hey CT that's a good old list you have there. Try the mighty Thunder or Joan Byez for size

As oppose to getting them to sleep.
If we wanted to have a jump around (as in a mosh pit style moment) for fun.

With each of them, from an early age:

Green Jelly's: Three Little Pigs

and

Pantera's: Walk

Kids like to jump around with abandon, as should their parents.

I'm a strong believer in the idea that you try and try to resist your parent's music taste but eventually come to love it. Take Status Quo, moaned constantly it was all that my dad played but when I got dragged to see them in Brighton back in December, I knew all the songs. Thanks to my parents I have a love for Dire Straits, Status Quo, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Chris Rea. I'm loving your U2 choice though! x

When my children were younger ( and even now) if I wanted to sing them off to sleep, or if they were upset and needed to be calmed down, it was always a song from Tom Waits (possibly my favourite artist):

Pasties and a G-string.

The lyrics aren't what you would usually associate with a lullaby, but it always did the trick.
I still use it to this day.

I like that song Marceygull, I love valerie by Steve Winwood. Hoodie Phil Collins is amazing lol I love him. BigCol I could go back to even older years.. I just loves so many and these so much to listen to, I love the fact that my parents brought me up with the music because its been such a big part in my life.

You're very lucky CT to have had music loving parents. I too don't know what I'd do without music........starve probably.

I go right back to the sixties and even further to the early days of rock and roll, and I truly value every influential note that has come my way. Indeed obviously I still love the 'old stuff' but it's so satisfying to me to know it's been influential to the generations that have followed, who have taken it, improved on it and given us the mass of young talent we appear to have amongst us now.

Of the above Kate Bush stands out on top for me.
