A type of music or a group (or Band)that reminded you of the days of your courtship (for whom it is pertinent-of your first and second time 'round)-what would it be?
I'm asking this because last evening, Mike & I sat to watch the DVD of the Beach Boys 50yr Reunion Concert. And before he entered my life-I must confess, I was more a fan of the Beatles & the whole British scene-but Mike was an avid Beach Boys fan. My kids skated to the Beach Boys-he set up the rinks on the lawn (with appropriate hockey markings in fluorescent orange)but also with the 8-track constantly playing the Beach Boys through our living room window. I remember taking DD#1's boyfriend with us somewhere, along with the 5 children we had at the time & the BB's playing & the 3 kids who were ours belting out all the words. The girl who was living with us as an 'unofficial' foster child looking confused, Adam looking happy & Steve not sure where to look. Susan just said to him "Hey-it's the music of my childhood" (he must have decided she was harmless-he married her!)
Last night, Mike knew all the gossip (Mike Love-married 7 times? Really?)-as we sat & bee-bopped on the couch & remembered. The Pugs sat with us-trying to get the popcorn & finally deciding that we might be happy but we weren't about to share-so they went to sleep while we laughed & reminisced. What music do you connect to those days of young love & little responsibility?
