I was at mom's house last night, for mother's day (of course). And I had my iPod with me, and eventually I pulled it out and started listening to it. For some reason I was going to have my mom listen to some electronic song on there that I thought was beautiful. If she didnt' like it I would somehow HAVE to convince her.

Then I was like "nah". I somewhat realized that mom is mom and she likes songs from the sixties and some from the seventies and that's it, really. I used to try to get her to listen to some of my music. But she's just not into that. It's not her thing.

So instead of being the one to break her out of her mold and introduce her to cool new music, i put the iPod away.

I guess it was interesting to just accept her that way...

actually it was. one of the first steps for me in recognizing someone for who they were and not trying to change them. I thought it was kind of cool for a psychological milestone. But if I had really learned I wouldnt' be replying to you :lol:

Actually, I agree - I think that does represent a fairly important milestone for you and it _does_ mean you're actively thinking about the emotions/concerns/feelings of others.

Each person celebrates their own victories - it's probably a good thing to very supportive of that. Congrats.

AND - by the way - even though I'm a man for rock and blues (mostly 'cause I love to play it), I listen to trance alot when I work; it is fairly good at keeping me focused. Techno is fun at clubs too.....

One of my Dad's favorite songs is "Mo Money Mo Problems" by Notorious B.I.G., P Diddy, and Mase. He listens to the top 40 stations sometimes. My parents don't really like most of the rap I listen to, but they are into some of the older groups who had influence on alot of rap and R&B, i.e., Earth, Wind, and Fire, Luther Vandross, Kool & the Gang, Isley Brothers, Jeffrey Osbourne, Al Green, Chicago, etc. Probably the type of music I'll listen to when I get a little bit older.

I find it's very cool to know the roots of all music we listen to; from the beginning to the end. Your parents listen to some good music there kelson.....I think it's only possible to appreciate music if you know where it's been and where it's going.

For example....Listen to Rob Zombie? Go back one step to Ozzie. Listen to Ozzie? Go back one step to Zeppelin. Listen to Zeppelin? Go back one step to the Beatles. Listen to the Beatles? Go back one step to Elvis. Listen to Elvis? Go back one step to Howlin Wolf, etc. etc. etc.

I have a hard time accepting others tastes in music sometimes. There are some genres of music, or a few bands inparticular that I feel are absolutely unacceptable, and if I see someone listening to these, I will look down on them forever. That's just how I am. I am a musical artist, and I feel there is a right way with music and a wrong way. It seems 50% or more that is out there is the right way. I was listening to the radio the other day in the car and I listened for 90 minutes and surfed through at least 7 stations, and I must've found 2 songs in that span of time that were decent and worth listening to. Then again, the radio is not a good way to look at what's really going in the music world, because the radio is censored and controlled by corporations. Most of the great bands playing today never make it on the radio.

I agree though P3, that's good that you were open minded enough to accept your mother's taste in music. I wish I could do that, but i can't. I will always be opinionated to the max about music.

If you want beautiful, download 'BT - Flaming June' and 'Lost Tribe - Angel'.

Both from the ending tracks of both the CD's that make up the Level 1 Euphoria CD set. I got these in 2000, and too this day they make my spine tingle.

The only other song that comes close is 'Coast 2 Coast (Spelt Coast || Coast on the label) - Home'.

I actually have a massive attack cd but when I got it last year i was WAY too anxious to listen to something that slow. i might download it on my iPod and listen to it while biking or something. it was pretty good...i like all kinds but i'm not a huge house fan
