     Someone used this phrase in a post recently, and it got to ramblin' around in my head. What finally precipitated down was music that I heard when REALLY young, that I still hear in my head; I decided to limit myself to five, and I'd like to see (hear) what y'all come up with.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

This is a good topic!
I recall hearing songs on the radio when I was REAL young-and to this day-I still sing them in my head.

.
I heard this when I was real little snot nose in upstate NY in 1969. Of course I loved 'Ding Dong the Witch is Dead'...and" the Name Game"

...and when I was a couple 3 years later-an eternity to a kid. When I was 7 and when I was 10 seemed like DECADES!!!! To be be young again...when summers felt like years...and you felt like a 13 year old was wise-and teenagers were a***oles.

I love this song! I used to feel so dirty blaring it on my stereo driving home from Catholic school.

You nailed it, retrorussell!  That about sums up my high school years (and maybe first year of university).

Thanks Newt!

Others I distinctly remember as a kid when they were new:

DA DOO RON RON- Shaun Cassidy

YOU'RE THE ONE THAT I WANT- John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John
"Tell me about it, stud." (I was a bit too young to get an erection from Olivia back then.. not anymore!)

MAKIN' IT- David Naughton

These are just some of those songs where I can remember exactly where I was in life at the time.  I wore Garanimals, my hair (hair?  What's that?) was blond-ish at the time, and we had one of those god-awful giant stereo cabinets we'd hear the song blasting from.  My older sister tried to teach me how to dance to the songs.  I never much cared for dancing.  But we had fun.  I still like disco.

As a kid, I actually owned a few cassettes my parents gave me which I came to love...most where actually old music from the 50s-60s. Recall loving these tunes:

Also listened a lot to my Dad's Jim Reeves records:

And finally this one stands out in memory as being very popular in the early 70s.

By the 1980s, I started liking that music a lot more and it's probably the music I still like best with some early 90s stuff thrown in (some of my fave bands are still R.E.M., Living Colour, Midnight Oil, Jesus Jones, Genesis).
