What Music Played in Your House When You Were a Kid?

downloadYesterday I was working at the computer when, out of nowhere, I had the sudden urge to both listen and sing “The Music of the Night” from Phantom of the Opera.

There is no rational reason for this other than the fact that my parents played their Phantom CD hundreds of times when me and my siblings were growing up. The music is in my DNA.

It’s particularly notable because my parents didn’t play a lot of different music. Rather, they played the same CDs and records over and over. So they really got etched into my memory. The other musicians were:

  • Bonnie Raitt
  • Amy Grant
  • Van Morrison
  • The song “Afternoon Delight” (I had no idea how dirty this song was until I watched the Arrested Development episode that explains it)

What type of music played in your house when you were growing up? Do any of those songs still randomly pop into your head?
