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.

hey there is actually some very nice bagpipe and gaelic music out there... although possibly your dad wasn't listening to it..

Judging by the age of most of it, I'd be surprised if he was listening to the good stuff...Actually, I can remember his inheritance track to me was (I think) a folk song that he sang me to sleep with...not a clue how to spell it...from memory it was something like Morag Bheag Nighean...maybe I should learn it & pass that on.

...maybe I should learn what it means first!

My parents handed me down some cool music, DP vehemently disagrees with my music taste though! Mind you there are 10 yrs between us!

I'll be passing on my love of Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, Simon & Garfunkel, Gary Moore, Fleetwood Mac (The Stevie Nicks/Lindsey Buckingham years) Michelle Shocked and many more.

I don't think I like anything my Mum and Dad listened to! Except maybe Queen - we've seen WE Will Rock You together a few times.
Thom is more interested in nursery rhymes at the moment than anything else, although he does dance like a crazy thing to Paul Weller Going Underground and Town Called Malice, and a few Morrissey tracks.

My Dad used to sing You are my Sunshine to us when we went to bed, and we have that on a mobile-thing in the car so Thom knows all the words now.

We had a lot of classical music at our house too. I can't think of any particular song (though I do have fond memories of jumping around pretending to ride a horse during the WIlliam Tell Overture). I think the legacy from my parents that I will try to pass on (despite DHs ridicule) is the value of public radio and all the independent music that is out there, as opposed to the terrible top 40 stuff.

This was always the song my mom sang to me too...though now that I've heard the entire song on the "Brother, Where art thou" soundtrack, I realize that it's really not a kid's song like I always assumed.

Another vote for Simon and Garfunkel here. Fond memories of childhood car journeys with my parents and brother. Also, Bridge Over Troubled Water was number 1 when I was born :D The Beatles too, and Elton John.

At the moment Dilly will dance like a loon to anything we play him. Martha's at that stage where liking the same music as your parents in NOT COOL :?
