Writer's Block: Neat, sweet, groovy songs

What was your favorite childhood band or artist? Are you still a fan?


I was very big on the Monkees once upon a time. Still like 'em, but have unfortunately developed the ability to see through them.

No no no! "I'm Looking Through You" is a Beatles song!

Hey, hey, we're the monkeys!

;-)

Got a couple of vinyls stored somewhere...
(And a few more CDs that have been ripped into iTunes)

Anyway, I figure that you're a guy of good taste, and probably like Frank Sinatra, right?

The music starts at about 4:40.
(I'm not translating althe jokes. Just that the singer explains that he learned the song by listening to a scratched single)

Here's a classier song:

sadly, I didn't even notice or pay attention to music (outside of chorus) until I was well into high school, when I suddenly discovered that the radio played stuff. I was much too hyper a kid to sit still long enough to do anything silly like listen to music. ;P -Frisk

Boney M and my childhood music.
I liked Boney M when I was growing up. There wasn't a whole lot of music in Cameroon, aside from things like the music of the Fulani of the North (which I actually found a vinyl recording of some of it at the Smithsonian), so selection was pretty much limited to the 45's the parents would buy on vacations to the States in the summer, and albums other people had. While Boney M never took off in the U.S. they were a very popular band in Europe, so I got to hear a lot of them. My favorite album was "Nightflight to Venus". I still like them, and have a number of their CDs.
