Inheritance Tracks

Don't panic, it's not tonight. Every so often we arrange to meet up online and talk rubbish. Not so different from the day-to-day, but with more people. Yes, it sounds naff, but just you wait... it's also oddly satisfying.

I've no idea what the plan for the party is tonight as I haven't been keeping up to date much :oops: blame my mates getting married & me not being able to put the camera down...

Anyway I thought of a game thanks to Radio 4 :D

What is your inheritance track? A song or tune that your parents introduced you to that you have introduced to your child(ren)?

I'll go first, it is my game after all :wink:

My dad was a real rock'n'roller. I play a lot of music from that era. He introduced me to the Mamas and Papas. I love the song "dream a little dream of me" which I sing to Bruno to go to sleep every night. :bsmile

Ahhh I was just playing the Mamas and Papas to the 10-year-old boys I look after as I drove them home. They loved it ;)

Jacob's a bit too young yet to care much about what we play him but it'll definitely be The Carpenters from me, and probably James Taylor from DH.

Oh, I didn't know it was party night! Might be able to pop in and out a bit...

There are more inheritance tracks than I can name, my dad was a total music lover, but the ones that really stand out are Skies Blue and Black by Jackson Browne, Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who, and Mr Brightside by the killers. I've seen all three of them with him. Well, not the Who, but I took him to see Roger Daltrey in NY for his last birthday.

Good thread. But I can't think of any except the Woad song! We're not very cool in my family.

You're probably going to think me a freak, but my mum only ever listened to classical music, so my inheritance track has to be Bach's Double Violin Concerto, which had pride of place in my mum's record collection when I was little. I can't listen to the slow movement without dissolving in floods of tears. I haven't actually played it to the kids much yet, so I don't know if it counts, but I hope they grow to love it (along with some more modern offerings!).

Ellielle, that's one of my favourites too. Love the slow movement.

We're real folkies in our family, so would love to pass on some of the trad stuff we listened to at home, and I really hope that Jiglet gets into playing music - I'm at least the fourth generation of fiddlers in the family and still play music with mum & dad when we're together, it would be so nice to do the same with my children. (But won't push it, it's her choice!)

Oh I'm being daft. Simon and Garfunkel.

And Blackbird by the Beatles.

We play a lot of classical too - every Sunday morning while I have my lie in, Bruno dances to 2instrument music" while DH reads the paper.

I think of this every week when I listen to Saturday Live and I never come up with the same songs twice! My mum was very keen that we should learn our "musical heritage" which meant anything from the Beatles to the Stones to random folk you've never heard of. For me growing up I remember Tracy Chapman, Leonard Cohen and Graceland by Paul Simon 'cos it was the only tape we (me and my mum, my bro and pa are more laid back!) could agree on for a two week driving holiday in France! It instantly takes me back to that holiday.

For TheWriggler I want him to know all of the above (except perhaps the random folk) plus Prince, more modern rock and Imogen Heap. She's my fave.

For me, it's got to be anything by the Beatles or Buddy Holly.
DP's contribution to Stompy's musical heritage will be Johnny Cash.

Before she was born, DP vowed that "kids tunes" would never get an airing in our house, that instead of 'Baa Baa Black Sheep', she'd be taught to sing Nick Cave...
Sending her to nursery soon put a stop to his plans! :wink:

My parents weren't particularly into sharing music...in my dad's case this was a good thing as he listens to bagpipes & gaelic music...Mum liked Jazz but I couldn't name a single track...she also had a huge classical vinyl collection, & one random Beatles ballads album...the one track I remember from that was Blackbird!! I also remember borrowing & listening to Swan Lake while revising.

Swan Lake is devine Allie.

I remember revising to Beethoven's 5th :oops: maybe that's why my A levels weren't that good?!
