A weekly meme by Ginger of GReads! In the meme I'll talk about music and showcase it here each week.
This version of the meme hasn't been done yet, but since I'm a HUGE fan of classic songs from almost every genre, I felt this was more fitting. I will also do a special edition of a Christmas one in a few weeks with a special version of the meme logo!
Anyway, hope this version catches on to inspire those that like music from any decade before the 1980's. That in itself, I will try to do at some point! Anyway... let's get this show on the road
I'm a HUGE fan of classic rock, which also calling it "classic" once in the past in front of my dad made him feel old haha so since then I try to be careful not to say it. But calling it classic doesn't me old. It can me in lingo terms: the best thing since sliced bread and always will be!
These bands are highly influential on me since I was in diapers. There are more, probably about 20 other musicians, bands, etc... from 1965-1990 that my fathers has played around the house that I still hear today. I even hear the Beatles more than three times a week after midnight blaring outside on the front patio and the kitchen while my father sits out there haha but still the best of the best still lives on in my house.
I think it has to largely do with that he saw most of the music, minus Janis Joplin and Jimmy Hendrix, live on stage one time or another. He has even met John Lennon while working at the Dakota Hotel at the end of the 70's and the early 80's.
Now for myself, I will play the greatest rockers of all time when I'm driving or just lounging around. I listen to a local radio station that has been around since the late 1960's and all they do is play music from 1965-1990/1991. You hear everything from "Cream", "Nirvana", "Pink Floyd", "The Beatles", and everything else considered good music of the rock genre.
Also my pride for this era of music is sort of borderline addictive haha. The reason I say that: I have a collection or rock vintage looking band shirts pilling up in my bedroom. I've got about four beatles shirts, a hendrix, two pink floyd, and a few other well known artist. Not to mention my vintage taste for '70s style clothing (long live floppy hats and bells!), just that this genre is everything that is me and probably won't ever disappear from my life.
I guess, I bleed not only O negative blood, but rock and roll is surging through my veins spinning the 60's and 70's!
