My taste in music growing up, like that of most people, was varied. I was a fan of AC/DC, Tom Petty, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Queen, Pink Floyd and ELO. I also loved what I guess is technically called rhythm and blues, but to me will always be sooooooooouul (as in Soooooooouul Train!). I went through a disco phase too. Leo Sayer, Andrew Gold, the Bee Gees, Donna Summer, the Village People, Michael Jackson–loved them all. My mind and ears were open, and that was a good thing.
And then there were the songs that glommed onto me. Songs I couldn’t stop singing. Songs that would stay in my little head for days. Decades later, I still know all the words. I am going to feature more of these in future posts, but for today, I’ll stick with my early years.
Flashback~Forget About-it-Guilty pleasure songs–the childhood edition.
I loved King Tut (Steve Martin too)! I remember calling Q94 in Richmond to request it over and over.
Do I even need to offer commentary on why I loved this song? Didn’t think so.
How hot was the Captain?!! I think he was one of my first crushes. Yeah, I was five or six, but even then I clearly knew what cute was.
I say whaaaaaaat? I say ewwwwww-weeeeeeee!
I know all of you have guilty pleasure songs from childhood–only when you were a kid, you didn’t feel guilty. Please share.
