Mom's Music

When I was a kid, my mom had the coolest music. I guess I was too young to have my own music taste and well, I thought her music was cool. Back then, if you didn't have money to buy your own records (If you had your own records, you had to negotiate play time on the record player, because having TWO in the house would just be insane.), you were subject to your parents music. Ok, you could hold your tape recorder up to the radio and tape your favorite song that way but, let's face sounded like crap. Lucky for me, I was subject to my mom's taste in music and not my dad's. My dad liked The Four Freshmen and Johnny Mathis (which he always pronounced Matthews...we still get a laugh about that to this day).

Here's a sampling of my mom's music:

Blood Sweat and Tears (Spinnin' fav)
Beatles (Apple albums, of course)
Simon and Garfunkel (Bridge Over Troubled Water)
5th Dimension
Joni Mitchell

My mom, who listens to alot of jazz these days, is still pretty cool. My dad, well I think he's still listening to Johnny Matthews...but I love him anyway (actually, I really like Johnny, too...but don't tell him).
