music to my ears

well, i have decided to post about music.

growing up i always liked musicals. funny girl was my favorite, and i still like it a lot, and i can sing all of the songs by heart (as well as recite the spoken parts) and because of that movie i like barbara streisand fairly well. i also really enjoyed all movies disney, and in turn like all of the music in them. mostly i liked music that i could sing with, and that is still the case. my mom listened to a lot of james taylor, simon and garfunkel, seals and crofts, crosby stills nash and young, and chicago (and lots of other stuff) and these are some of the artists that i still like.
in later years, like 6th grade or so, i started liking groups like en vogue and boys II men, and had their tapes that i listened to. by 7th grade i was a country fan, and this came at a time when fresno had an 'all garth (brooks) all the time' radio station. it worked well for me. i still listened to other music, a little bit of alternative, some rap, etc. it wanst until high school though that i really started to get into music.
i liked alternative (sadly) and listened to the cranberies all the time. i was also really into bush, metallica (which i am not embarrased by), green day, counting crows, blues traveler, veruca salt, and no doubt. there are a lot more, but those are some of my favorites. fountains of wayne self titled album was a favorite during my junior year of high school, as well as the local rabbits. i soon grew out of that music though, and have pretty much stuck to good old rap and rnb. snoop, eminem, nate dogg, missy elliott, ludacris those are some of my faves. i do, however, have to give a shout out to some honorable mentions: evanesence, fergie, etta james, norah jones, and doris day.
