I Love to Listen to the Oldies

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,355 People

    As a child I enjoyed listening to certain music.

    As I was getting older I would find out who sung the song and buy each song with the album. I collected the music I enjoyed and would only listen to that. Now as an adult the music has become an oldie. Some of the music that is played now has lyrics that shouldn't be sung.

    Love That Music!

    Even though I wasn't even born yet, I just love this music. I grew up with this music, because my parents used to listen to it. I like a lot: country, jazz, disco, rock 'n roll, love ballads...anything! Some of my favourites (some may not be real oldies, but still...old hits...

    RUBY MURRAY: 'Softly,

    Love The Oldies

    I grew up listening to oldies. I can remember my family having parties and all they ever played were oldies. I remember my aunts and uncles doing the stroll, that was always my favorite. Oldies always trigger a happy memory. =]

    Have You Ever Seen The Rain

    KAY STARR - 'My Heart Reminds Me' (1957) (YT

    Back when musicians had talent.

    I like to listen to the Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers, Chubby Checker, the "Rat Pack", Elvis and the list goes on. Most (not all) of modern music is annoying.

    I love to listen to the oldies at home

    and in my car. I love to sing the words of the songs. I love the 60s, 70, 80, and 90s. I do not care for the newer music. I just adore the oldies and they are sure goodies. I love both individuals and groups for my listening entertainment.

    FAIRGROUND ATTRACTION: 'Walkin'

    after Midnight (1990). The Scottish acoustic band were always a bit of a take on the Fifties...they covered early Elvis, Sam Cooke and...this much-covered Patsy Cline tune from 1957 or thereabouts. This reminds me of last year's Valentine's Night storm - when I went out to see...

    I Grew Up On 'em

    My first favorite singer was Brenton Woods (Whoop It On Me, The Oogum, Boogum Song) and I was only four years old! Then it was Diana Ross and Aretha Franklin (apparently I'd sing Respect as I walked down the street and serenade strangers) at the same age, and so one. I still love...

    Ignore the funky duds on these dudes

    and their Louis XlV hairdos. Ma Belle Amie (1969), by the Dutch group, Tee-Set, is a catchy little tune and the lead singer, Peter Tetteroo, had a pretty nice voice. People in 1969-1970 apparently agreed with me, as the song reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970.

    because that is what I grew up listening to.

    When I listen to the oldies I can understand the lyrics and what is sung. I am able to feel the experience being told. The lyrics expressed use clean language.

    I love the oldies from the 50s with Presley

    and so many others through the 80s with Billy Joel and Elton John. There is so many favorite groups and individuals with wonderful words to live by. I sit and listen to all kinds of music when I am at work, in my car, and at home too.

    I love metal. Yes, but I also love some of the oldies. Sometimes you just wanna sit back and listen to music made before you were born. Some of the music I have makes my mom say "I bought the 7inch single of that song." Yes. Im 21 and I listen to stuff from the 70s and 80s like...

    My Dad loved to blast his music at home

    and in the car, and it kinda encouraged me to sing along since I had nothing else to do. And we've been jamming out to songs together throughout and after my childhood. Fond memories. My favourites would be Simon and Garfunkel and YES I'M STILL LISTENING TO THE BACKSTREET BOYS...

    There's so much out there!

    You'll spend your first few years listening to chart stuff. We all do. Then you'll hear something you REALLY like! And you then have to search for similar stuff. Sometimes it's hard to find. But when you do.......

    Memories, Not Oldies

    Born in 1957 Philadelphia, it's hard not to remember the songs of my youth. American Bandstand started  there. Bill Haley & the Comets started in an adjoining town. And so many other singers/groups started there. My first wife dated one of the Comets in their high...
