    We all grew up listening to music. Some songs from our childhood still remain our favorites.
    What are some of yours?

    I will start with three.

    I do not recall listening to any songs during my childhood. I did listen to rock music when I became a teenager, but I cannot recall the bands right now, there were so many.
    Remember the Woodstock Festival of 1969? I attended that event. I was a hippie then.

    That was my teen years, so I don't really consider my childhood, but I still like some System and even Limp Bizkit. They put on an awesome show I got to see them.. White and Rob Zombie also used to put on a great show, but now Rob Zombie just sucks. And not in the good way that Primus sucks (didn't get to hear them often growing up, but there's never been any denying .Les Claypool is one wicked awesome bassist).

    I don't remember you saying that before, but my memory is not so good these days.

    Talking about the Woodstock Festival really brought back some memories. As I recall I was about 16 years old at that time. I cannot remember much of the festival, that was a long time ago. Imagine this, 500,000 young people gathered together and there was only peace and love, no violence. How much different the world is now.

    Cars by Newman ranks as one of the best in my opinion.

    I did not tell you I was a hippie? I did take a lot of drugs for several years but I never engaged in free love.

    That was not long before I became a Baha'i, only about a year and a half before that. Life changed markedly after that.

    I liked Blue Suede Shoes, but later in my teens and twenties I liked folk music. I was just listening to Paul Robeson sing "Water Boy," one of my favorites.
    Another rendition I listened to a lot when I was younger was by Odetta. Beautiful and sad song.

    I very strongly attribute that song to shaping my relationship with cars and how I view them, which does include it being a sort of personal sanctuary. I do believe if it weren't that song, I wouldn't feel so secure and cut off from the world when I'm in it, because when I'm "in my car, I can lock all the doors. It's only way to live." And a great place to talk to someone while isolated from the world, without even a TV to get in the way. And when I really need to be away from people, it's "where the image breaks down."

    And when you're in your car, you can turn the music up and be/act however you want no matter what anyone else thinks. Its like being in your own world. That's how I see it anyway.

    I'm glad.
    If you don't know who Jim Breuer is, you should look his joke about "nursing home mosh pit hour." (it should tickle anyone who grew up with Iron Maiden, Metallica, Slayer, and such. Actually, just try to find his entire "...And Laughter for All" performance. The part when he went to a concert of the Big 4 is absolutely hilarious when Slayer takes stage):D
