I was in high school in the 60's so I listened to Pat Boone and Elvis Presley. And, I watched American Bandstand every day after school. Fun times!

Music was what helped me get through my high school years (1970's)! I listened to all types but I really listened to a lot of Cat Stevens, Eric Clapton, Aerosmith, Steely Dan and Captain and Tennille.

Being in High School, I explored different genre. When I felt like a hippie chick I listened to Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Crosby Stills Nash & Young and the Dead... When I was hanging with my punky friends, I loved Bowie, The Romantics, The King-Bees, The Clash, and pop bands like Duran Duran and the Go-Gos... But I also played cello and had a great appreciation for Classical-- particularly Rimsky-Korsokov, Bernstein, Gershwin, and Ralph Vaughn Williams.

The first song I heard when I walked in to the Student Union my freshman year of high school was: "The Lion Sleeps Tonight". It always brings back memories.

Diverse yes, Im an old sole, and listen to much music that wasnt popular at all from the 40's and 50's 60's too. Alot of stuff that was popular during the Nam war, as my friends fathers and brothers were returning home, alive and in boxes.....A very sad time in our country. I was in choir and sang and danced so music was my life then..

The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks, Simon and Garfunkel, Dvorak, Hoagy Carmichael, any bigband music, The Lovin' Spoonful, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles, Mostly The Kinks... They were/are my favorite. All my friends made fun of me because no one else my age was listening to this music at the time...

Ahhh, the early 70's..... It was John Mayal singing about "California", Jesse Colin Young and his "Ridgetop", some Stoneground thrown in just to keep things moving. When I was feeling reflective, Joni Mitchell and Judy Collins The first album I purchased was Joan Baez, her warbling connected me to Early American roots. The first concert I attended was Janice Joplin with Norton Buffalo; I was thirteen and it cost $3.50....her intensity satisfied my teenage rebellion. Lots and lots of Crosby, Stills and Nash, Santana and the occassional Bob Dylan thrown in for good measure. Simon and Garfunkel's, "Kodachrome" was the finale to my high school years in 1973. Music and lots of it, it makes life sweet!!!!!!

I graduated HS in 1996, and I became a lifelong, diehard Pearl Jam fan when they first introduced TEN. If I wasn't listening to PJ (and I probably was, and stil am!), it was Bob Marley or Stone Temple Pilots.

Steamy, hot back-to-school days in Houston were more tolerable with songs like "Hot Time in the City", "Sealed With a Kiss", "So Happy Together"...as high school teenagers in the late '60's, we were just being exposed for the first time to rock music. It seemed most of us were "boy-crazy" and "band-crazy", sitting in front of our record players and playing the same 45's over and over, or placing the needle carefully on a "special song" on a priceless album or concert that cost us quite a few summer few babysitting jobs. I wiill always remember my first live concert to see Roy Orbison, and the craziness of a packed local movie theatre showing Magical Mystery Tour and Yellow Submarine. I had so many favorites that I can't name them all here...countless tunes by the Beatles, the Monkeys, Simon and Garfunkle, The Lovin' Spoonful, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, The Turtles, Donovan, The Animals, the BJ's...just to name a few!!

1976 we were tail-ending the big BiCentennial Celebration of our great country...I was livin' large in my cut-off "Daisy Dukes" shorts, halter tops, and rockin' to the best '70's Rock'n'Roll on my very own "Stereo" - with an 8-track player, turntable, AM and FM with two speakers!! Knew Mom was helping me get ready for the walk to school, making me a peanut-butter-and-jelly "slurp'n'choke" sandwich, and a crisp red delicious apple. I had a Thermos she would use for packing me homemade soup when the weather got cool. Steely Dan's "Reelin' in the Years" and "Summer Breeze Makes Me Feel Fine" by Seals & Croft, with a little "Closer to Home" by Grand Funk Railroad helped me to move along to school, the tunes "stuck in my head" without earplugs back then, unless it was the little white or tan one attached to the transistor radio. Bookin' to school in my wallabies...It was all good back in 1976, on my first day in 10th grade!

In high school, I loved Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and early (pre-Stevie Nicks) Fleetwood Mac. Sooo thankful that I graduated before disco hit!

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 :*)
