In my teens, my taste in music turned mostly to "rock and roll."  One of the firsts that I remember, from my junior high days, was Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley and the Comets. It was always played at our dances.

Of course I was a fan of Elvis Presley!  My favorite aunt, Aunt Jo, was in the Army and was stationed at Fort Hood when Elvis served there. She said that he was so polite and very soft spoken.

There were so many songs that I loved in my teens, and I had a pretty good record collection. I mostly liked slow songs, but not exclusively. Of course I watched Dick Clark and Bandstand every day after school.

My brother liked country music, and for a couple of years I listened to a lot of his records.

One group that I never really cared too much for were The Beatles.  They had a few songs I liked, but I wasn't a big fan.

Since those days, my taste in music has leaned more toward country, although I don't care for the newest country artists.

I had planned to expand on my music tastes a bit more, but after thinking so much about it when I couldn't sleep at night, I have become totally bored with the subject. So, as this is my blog, I am taking the liberty of cutting this short.
