As a teen going to school in the late '70s, listening to music was a must! It was 'cool' to be up on the latest songs. I remember driving myself to school with Led Zeplin, Van Halen, Supertramp, Rolling Stones, and so many others blasting on the radio (remember this was time before CDs!) This morning as I drove my teenage children to their first day of school, guess what is playing on their iPod in the car?? Yep, Led Zeplin, Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Sting, Aerosmith... Music that can span three decades and still sounds fresh is definitely classic! I love that my kids are telling me the stories about these bands (as if I didn't know ;D) and are having their own experiences with them. As the new social committee chairman for the high school, I'm thinking Stairway to Heaven might be a good way to end the school dances this year :*)

Oh boy. At first I listened to pop music like Backstreet Boys, N'Sync, Christina Aguleria. By my sophomore year I got more into rock/alternative/punk such as Flogging Molly, Alkaline Trio, Metallica, and that sort of thing.

I TOTALLY listened to The Police in high school and am so excited to hear Sting's new release!! I also listened to "techno rock" like Styx (who was my FAVORITE band of the day) and I can't believe I just admited that fact! :) But I was also very eclectic in my music listening...The Eagles, Simon and Garfunkel, Moody Blues, even 70s country. The only music I could NOT stomach was disco...UGH!! These 3 CDs look AMAZING! I can't believe we're going back to my youth to pay homage to the 70s and 80s. THAT ROCKS!!

I have always had an old soul even though I was born into the tale end of Generation X. The newest stuff I listened to was The Dave Matthews Band. I was more into Joni Mitchell, Simon and Garfunkle, and Ella Fitzgerald

During the Upper Merion, JC Smith years, we were mostly listening to Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, The Temptations and The Supremes. Then we flipped, to pop-rock.

Oh my,that takes me back! "Making out" in the rain in a 280z to Juke Box Hero" by Foreigner, Dancing at Prom to "Best of Times" by Styx, or jammin out in the courtyard at lunch to "Back in Black" by ACDC. Okay, I'm officially old.

The 80's was an awesome year, and I still listen to its music. In High School, I remember listening to Bryan Adam's "Summer of 69"; Nena's "99 Luftballoons"; and Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean". Those were the best years of my life. It's funny to see and hear current movies using the 80's music. It brings back great memories!
