Its time for guilty pleasure of the week....

Photobucket

My guilty pleasure this week is classic rock. I grew up in the 70's and 80's. I think the music we had back then was the best. I listen to everything from the Eagles, to the Beatles, Van Halen, Chicago, Queen, and I think I have every 70's mix CD they have on the market. If you would have told me back then that what I listened to would be considered classic some day, I would have laughed. Guess what? The same thing is going to happen to the youths today. Can you imagine Slipknot, Pantara, or Marilyn Manson on an oldies channel? Ya, that's pretty funny. I cant even imagine.

Time goes by so quickly but I find that when I'm listening to my classic rock, it takes me back. Don't you have those songs from your past that bring back all sorts of memories? Your first kiss? Losing your virginity? Hanging out with friends? MTV when they had no commercials? Those were the good ole' days. I don't think I could ever get sick of listening to Elton John. Does this make me old? Nah...does it mean I'm stuck in time?? Nope...it just means that I love to listen to music that makes me feel good. I cant go a day at work without listening to my tunes. Ive tried to mix it up a bit but I always come back to the classics. Those were good times!

That collage for your post totally rocks!!! I cringe every time I hear something that I loved growing up being played on Oldies or Classic Rock. I don't care how old it is - if it is quality it should stand the test of time. And that would eventually make it a Classic.

That is so true. Music and memory are connected. Sometimes just hearing a special song and not remember what happend the time you heard it, just the feeling you had.

There is an award waiting for you here :)
