    I had this on cassette tape. It was in the Oldies genre when I was a kid and funnily enough, that was all that I listened to! My parents weren't into it either so I don't know why I was... just good music I guess. My second choice is Walk Don't Run. Like em' all though.

    ...since I can play this on guitar. ...also wipeout is undeniable. I used to play wipeout in grade school and high school with my feet and it would attract a small crowd of unbelieving onlookers ;).

    We use to attend block dances during the Summer back in the early 60's. Many a good guitar song.

    The Ventures alone created a huge demand for Fender guitars back then...
  • Pip Robert 2009/02/26 18:56:54

    Yes, they sure did. Like, "Walk, don't run"

    I really can't decide on a single one of these, but at the same time I can't remember any of the names of bands that I like even now! (lol) I just listen to the radio and constantly flip stations depending on the mood I'm in or want to be in. So I never pay attention to any of the song titles or artists.

    I'm a record labels worst person to ask a music related question to! (lol)

    You are at least listening to new stuff! Don't get old like me and fall back on too much of the old stuff. There is still plenty of good stuff on the air waves!

    Well... it only takes one song that you listen to that will bring you up to the modern type of music! ;-)

    I listen to classical, chants (monks and such), metal, rap, blues, jazz, hip-hop, mix... basically you name it I listen/listened to it. But I can honestly say that I don't much care for those feely go touchy music like Yo-Yo Ma and that type of musician/music. For some reason it really bothers me, but I'll sit through it if someone else is listening to it and then change the channel or cd! (lol)

    Purple Haze isn't an instrumental.
