What Artists Did Your Parents Play That You Hated the Most?
When I was a kid, my mom was worse than a jukebox on repeat. She would play the same songs, over and over again. There are a few that stand out, but one was far and away the MOST OVERPLAYED SONG OF MY CHILDHOOD! That song? Lady, by Kenny Rogers!
I have vivid memories of sitting by the record play in our living room. My mom would listen to Lady over and over again! I was about 5 or 6 years old and I remember having really deep thoughts about the concept of love and relationships. I knew Kenny was romantic, and I knew he was also a gambler, so I figured he was kind of tough guy. My conclusion? This is the kind of singer all ladies wanted, including my mom. Yes, I had these thoughts when I was young, because I was a bizarre kid.
Anyway, Kenny Rogers-Lady....was the most overplayed song of my childhood!
What was yours?
