Welcome back to another Throwback Thursday. If you remember, a couple weeks ago we said that this is something we would do a few times throughout the month. Two weeks ago we talked about some of our favorite fantasy books from our childhood (and excluded Harry Potter because that’s just a no brainer). Today we are throwing it back to some of the music that we could not stop playing. The music that made our moms yell at us to turn it down and then continually share with the world how obnoxious our music was (PS we love our moms!).
So, what cd do we remember playing constantly until everyone in the house was sick of it?
Oh gosh, what do I even pick? Well…as a middle schooler I went through a lot of changes. I know most middle schoolers go through changes, but not all also have their dad die. So yea, I had a lot going on. After my dad passed I started to get a little “emo,” if you can call it that really. I started listening to stuff that I thought was super dark and songs that I felt just really got me. I loved my pop music, but it just wasn’t doing it for me anymore. I think this was the beginning of my journey into the pop punk and emo genre. It all began with…Good Charlotte.
I was 100% obsessed with these albums, but once they hit album number 4 I had decided they sold out. Yep, I was that kid. I decided that they got me and that I was doing better because I had their music. My mom hated them. My sister loved them (which is good because we shared a bedroom at the time). We got to go to a concert when I was in 10th grade and I thought it was the best thing ever. So yea. Here are a few songs just to make you smile. Because I bet you wanted to listen to Good Charlotte today.
So I have been debating all day on what cd/artist I was going to pick. Would I go with a boy band that tore up my heart (*wink wink did you see what I did there) or would I pick some good 90’s country artist. Well I decided neither of those and went with a classic group who most people love and I am so glad that my parents made me listen to their music…the amazing Queen.
So many good memories listening to Queen on road-trips with my family. Asking my parents to play the “thunder bolts and lightening” song, which was what we called Bohemian Rhapsody or singing along to We Are the Champions when our sports team won a big game! I am so glad my parents shared all their great music that they grew up to with us as kids. There music is so unique and has so much power behind it. They were on a whole different level and there will never be another artist like Freddy Mercury. Ever. So to make your day a little better, here is a few songs to jam out to on your fabulous Thursday:
Question: What are some cds or artists that you couldn’t stop playing?
