I was wondering what the British Invasion of the 60s must have been like for those lucky baby boomers but then I realized I, too have lived through a British invasion of sorts--they didn't quite live up to the universal and ever-lasting fame of the male mop top haircuts but the Spice Girls rocked my world when I was 10.
Dire Straits (before school)... and The Beatles is all I rememeber, later came in Gorillaz (when in school), but now almost anything really, depending on the mood(still in school, last year), it went somewhat like that jinamuro's illustration..
I'm only 16, but my musical phases went something like what is below. It helped that my dad is a musician and music theorist, and got me started early.
Preschool: The Beatles
Early Elementary School: Cream
Later Elementary School: Pink Floyd
Early Middle School: Rammstein/Pink Floyd (tie)
Late middle school to present: FAR too many artists to name a favorite, my "musical taste explosion" (sounds kinda dirty >_>) happened 2-3 years ago.
When I was seven I bought my first walkman with holiday money, first day of holiday I blow my budget on one thing BUT IT WAS WORTH IT. While on holiday I'd get people to help me make tape comps at each relatives house. I don't remember much from these tapes because they were heinous, all I remember is 'under the broad walk' and way too much phil collins/genesis. >____<
But when I got home my cool neighbour dubbed me a bunch of David Bowie tapes which was a whole lot better. roud:
Blink-182. Always loved them, always will. I had to have my Gramma take me to buy the albums, then sneak them into the house so my female bioparent wouldn't see them (super conservative born-again type).
I liked A R Rahman a lot for his fantastic music in the movie Dil Se(Hindi) and i like him till date. He won at the oscars last year for his music in the movie slumdog millionaire. A R Rahman has given many hits to the industry here.
