Mom had(has) this album. Is it still the Age of Aquarius? When did it start? When does it end? Anyone know? This song was great.

This song was great. The bass is cool.

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?


YouTube - Herman's Hermits - No milk today

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!


YouTube - Kris Kristofferson - Loving Her Was Easier (Than Anything I'll Ever Do Again)

We got to listen to stuff like this, shucks...


YouTube - Liszt, Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 Orchestra

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:


YouTube - Tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree


YouTube - Sugar Sugar by The Archies


YouTube - Terry Jacks - Seasons In The Sun

My mom was a huge Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton fan.

My daughter credits me for her vast knowledge of 80's hardcore and punk rock.

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.

My Mom will be 75 this year - I certainly remember listening just about every day to at least one of the following:

Bobby Darin (I remember she was so sad when he passed away in 1973)
Andy Williams
Glenn Miller
Liberace
Jim Nabors
Herb Alpert
Roy Rogers!

She also tortured us w/ Lawrence Welk & 101 Strings (I don't know which was worse)and we listened to the "beautiful music" stations in the car.

Still, my favorite artist is Bobby Darin so kudos to my Mom for that!

My mom loved all that stuff too. I already posted this by the Righteous Bros. This one has great pictures and art, but it's a cover. Not bad.
