Well here i am sitting on a funny kind of Monday and this funny kind of Monday ain’t so funny, after all….or something like that. I can’t recall the exact lyrics to Glen Campbell’s Funny kind of Monday (and maybe that isn’t even the song title of it) but anyway…what music did your parents play in the family home when you were growing up?
I was raised with Jim Reeves, Glen Campbell, Mario Lanza, Nat King Cole and Don Williams playing on the old record player. Eventually we got a tape player and i had the record player in my bedroom (where i developed my own music tastes including Ozzy Osbourne, Rush, Black Sabbath and Rainbow).
I am having major nostalgic flashbacks now just thinking about those days when the only responsibilities i had were to get up, get dressed and brush my teeth each morning!
I distinctly remember that I was in one big hurry to ‘grow up’.
