I have certain songs stuck in my head since a child. A child!

This is one of them. I dunno why. I was only 7 years old when I first heard this song. It was 1969.
It takes me back.

I was getting flack from friends in my early teens for listening to soul, funk and R&B. Apparently that was not young white male music, but I didn't care. I just couldn't relate to metal and punk.



The closest I got to rock and punk was the Dirty Mind album by Prince. He would blend punk with funk, pop, soul, rock and new wave, creating his own unique sound. I loved it. Dirty Mind was and still is one of my favorite albums of all time.

I heard "Ode to Billy Joe" for the first time as a kid on an album of crossover country hits and it stuck with me. Still one of my all-time faves, fantastic songwriting.

I remember hearing Bat Out of Hell played a lot on the radio when I was 4 or 5. Preferred it to all the other stuff normally played on Westsound.

Although the first dong I heard of theirs scared the 💩 out of me when I was about 6, The Moody Blues have always been my fave group. 😊

I heard it too.
I didn't live down south, but we was raised in the boonies in Michigan.

Hate to break this to you, but Prince is no where near punk.

Beatles.  I remember my Mom dancing around the house to "She Loves You".  I was in Kindergarten.

Dirty Mind has more punk sounds than Prince's previous albums.

as I said he would fuse it with other music styles on Dirty Mind.

Dance-punk is a post-punk subgenre that emerged in the late 1970s, and is closely associated with the disco, post-disco and new wave movements.

Yeah. Written by someone who doesn't listen to punk, I reckon.  Lookingup

I never listened to punk until I got to high school. Never liked it much, but all the kids I wanted to hang out with listened to it, so I tolerated it. It was better than the pop music of the time, at least (80s).

In other words, music critics, experts and historians were wrong about the punk in Dirty Mind for decades. Thank you for setting the record straight Ronny  Wink

Honestly, classical. It wasn't til my teens I got into rock, alternative, classic rock, even contemporary pop. I haven't listened listened to classical that much in this century.

Grew up in the 90s, with MTV. Grew up with grunge and hip-hop, mostly.

I dug Nirvana, Public Enemy, etc. Weird Al
