Perhaps strange, but most everyday music never appealed to me at the time. Now, compared to much present bits and bobs, I quite like some of it.
My taste is very wide. [go say it. Big mouth] The 60's era mostly was love ballards, and being as I got married in 1962, the songs served a purpose. Nice to see another member likes Lanza. I have and enjoy the big bands, Miller, Dorsey and Co. Military bands also tempt my ears. Classical and semi classical. The Shadows are still amongst my most played. Probably due to the fact I knew them personally. I love piano music, and the type of music that to me, takes me on a journey. Nat King Cole is a favourite. Especially 'When I fall in love'. When our first daughter was born. I requested to be played on the hospital radio. The words stayed with us. Then I had it played at my wife's funeral. There wasn't a dry eye around. Even now as I type, my windows are misting up. So what better words to close with.
