Great thread!

Flo-Po - I too loved Fuzzbox International rescue! Takes me right back to a naughty summer lying in bed with a hangover - then hopping into Mr T's old TR7 car! Hehehe - by lunch time I'd be right as rain......!!!

A-Ha - Take on Me - another fav - reminds me of a cold winter spent with my girl friends about town, window shopping!!!

Others for me are, The Pet Shop Boys - Suburbia - tis "our tune" for Mr T and myself!
New Shooz - I Can't Wait
Stan Ridgeway - Camoflage (spelt wrong I think!!)
Billie Ocean - Carribean Queen
Thompson Twins - Doctor Doctor
Johnny Hates Jazz - Shattered Dreams
Meatloaf - Dead Ringer

And if I really had to pick from my 20's - I'd say anything from Oasis or Stereophonics!

In my youth I was also a bit geeky and loved Shakin Stevens (but don't tell anybody!) I also was hooked on Elvis, Sam Cooke and Buddy Holly.

Lovely Lincoln :)
I'm a 90's child so for me it was Steps, B*witched, Aqua, vengaboys, spice girls, westlife etc. I was obsessed with B*witched - blame it on the weatherman. I got slightly better taste when I entered my teenage years, I remember having cds by Robbie williams (i loved 'rock DJ' :redface: ), the corrs, shania twain and sophie ellis bextor. Nowadays I much prefer 80s and some 90s type stuff - Pet shop boys/madness/erasure/genesis/REM etc and bands like aerosmith, bon jovi, meatloaf, nirvana. Do still like robbie and the corrs though. I listen to really random stuff, it all depends on what mood I am in, my ipod has everything from westlifes love album to the smashing pumpkins to clubland eurodance :giggle:.

I'd forgotten about Nirvana! I got their album with "teen spirit" on it one year for Christmas. What a great album.... OH and I played it whilst sipping wine and waiting for the turkey to cook!

Bros - when will i be famous

Loved anything by wham or culture club (culture club were my mums fave!)

Swingout sister

Who can forget Wet wet wet!!! the amazing marti pellow. My dad always used to listen to them in the car on holidays.

As a teenager i was an indie kid and very into oasis and the verve, we are moving into the 90s now. Far cry from these days where it's all rock and metal and irish indie bands :p

Oh dear you make me feel old! I loved the Beatles especially Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band onwards and Simon and Garfunkel. Also grew into Black Sabbath and Incredible String Band

I confess to an odd liking for Abba en route!!

I'm loving this thread but can't join in because music is so important to me, that my list would go on forever!

But what is interesting is that one quick glance at everyone else's list and I'm suddenly finding out what age group you all are! :wink:

Like eml I remember especially Simon & Garfunkel and Black Sabbath, and I also really liked Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

The song I remember best though is from when I was splitting up with my first husband - Natalie Imbruglia's Torn. It got me every time.

These two were the first I remember really liking

I'd have been about 8 or 9 then :redface:

So I basically started as a little hippy, passed through a brief glam-rock phase (Slade, Sweet, Mud, T-rex etc) before discovering Pink Floyd, Led Zep, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Rainbow, AC/DC and so forth, pausing along the way for a very short & rather half-hearted attempt to like punk before going off to uni where I learned to listen to a much wider range of music.

I've still got loads of my old vinyl, including the album this came from

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_1XYhm750Y

I bunked off school to go & buy it the day it came out and drove my parents nuts playing it over & over VERY loudly :giggle:

Ha! I actually went to see Quo about a year ago. They had never been top of my list but a mate had a spare ticket.....the sea of mismatched denim in the audience and on stage was hilarious to behold, but I have to say they do put on a good show.

I have loved so many different types of music and grew up during glam rock times (Sweet, Mud, Slade etc) but adored both the Beatles and the Stones (still do) but was just always very eclectic. One day I'd be listening to Ritchie Blackmore, the next day Stevie Wonder, and the day after that Cream or maybe The Doors. I LOVE music and I know how hearing just a few notes of a song can take you somewhere and make you feel like you have gone back in time.

Another 90s child - Nirvana and Green Day (and definitely the Spice Girls) mostly but I definitely remember it as the decade of the girl and boybands....and Blue (Da Ba Dee) by Eiffel 65! Who remembers that one?
