As I get ready for Girl Baby, I am making a list of what she needs to know.
On the top of that list is music.
Music is important to me and I have pretty strong opinions.
I got to thinking...where did my musical taste come from?
This is what I came up with.
Mom and Dad
Country (good country not this new fangled crap)
1960's ensemble folk (Christy Minstrels)
Laverne who I worked with
1960's Southern Baptist Choirs
Patricia my friend in 6th grade and my Uncle John
My High School Crush
Red House Painters
Christy my first boss
The Who (who from then on were my favorite band)
Local Bands (like my first exposure)
80's Brit Pop
People I would like to forget
I mean really, I have a lot to teach girl baby. She has a lot to know. I should probably make her a mix tape.
