What was the background music of your childhood?
I mean, what did your parents/guardians/siblings listen to when you were a little kid? You know, the stuff that when it comes on, makes you freeze for a second as your mind replays a memory of sitting in the backseat of a car next to your brother, your eyes way closer to the floor, watching your parents sing “Once in a Lifetime.” It would also be fun to remember the music geared to kids in this thread as well, I think. And talk radio programs, if you can recall any. And if your parents or the people you were with in those days played instruments.
For me, it’s the Talking Heads (obviously), the B-52s (also pretty obvious :oP), the Cowboy Junkies, Bobby McFerrin, Melissa Etheridge, Paul Simon, and lots of varied classical music. For kid music, I remember mostly Raffi. Talk radio was always Prairie Home Companion and Car Talk. If anyone wants to rediscover Prairie Home, check out this link.
