What old school music do you like, that has been inspired by your parents?

My mum is a big fan of tears for fears and david bowie (amongst others) and as she was a stay at home mum, i grew up with that stuff. As a result, i still listen to the music that she used to play around the house. Is it the same for you guys?

What Guys Said 5

  • I personally listen mostly to old school music. I actually don't listen to a lot of contemporary music, because I just don't find it as good.
    The most important bands/singers I listen to because of my parents are:
    - The Beatles
    - The Doors
    - Bob Dylan
    - Leonard Cohen
    - Jimmie Cliff
    - Simon and Garfunkel
    - Cat Stevens
    - Jefferson Airplane
    - Led Zeppelin
    - Lynyrd Skynyrd
    My parents are both sort of typical ex-hippies (especially my mom). But there are also things they listen to that I don't like so much, such as ABBA and the Rolling Stones. And then there are old school bands that I listen to but my parents don't really like them, such as the Beach Boys, the Bee Gees, or Don McLean.

  • 80s FTW!!!

  • I was raised on classic rock and I still love a lot of it.

    But I've actually moved much further old school than my parents ever were. I frequently enjoy jazz and blues music from the 20s and rag times, and my favorite music is bluegrass/old time.

  • I like Bowie, king crimson, velvet underground, moody blues though my parents never exposed me to velvet underground

  • None. My parents have terrible taste.. ugh
