My mom liked the 5th Dimension too, and I remember her favorite rock group was Hermans Hermits because the beatles had become hippies. I also like the 5th Dimension and even some of hermans hermits stuff (NOT their overplayed hits though) No Milk Today, Rattler or Got a Feeling anyone?
My mom now likes The Beatles a lot, which is pretty cool for someone in her 80s!
But I listened to the music my dad liked--he was into Johnny Cash, Kris Kristopherson, Henry Mancini, Herb Albert. I never minded it when I was growing up in the late 60s-early 70s, but now I like it a lot!
Now as an adult, and having studied up a bit, I am glad to have been exposed to this. Liszt was the "rock legend" of his time. (And the soundtrack to all the old classic WB cartoons was lifted from this piece)
We also got to listen to these tunes too - I am stretching way back because once I was old enough to turn the radio dial or get my own albums, things changed a bit:
My mom is 71. Mentioned she liked the song Rock and Roll by Zep when it was used in the Cadillac commercials a few years ago. Recently, I was driving her somewhere in my car. Listening to classic rock on the FM. She said I like that song. Not sure which song it was, but it was something by Black Sabbath. I just about died. Those were some of the hard rockers in my day.
