The Alan Parsons Project (http://www.alanparsonsmusic.com/). I didn't have their vinyl albums, but always enjoyed their music. "Don't Answer Me" is probably my favorite song of theirs and I do have their Greatest Hits CD, which is also on my iPod. I can still listen to them any time.
The Beatles (http://www.thebeatles.com/). Who doesn't like The Beatles? I've been a fan since I was in the 3 rd grade. Back in…1965 (whew-too long ago). My friend had their albums and we listened to them daily. My favorite, though?
Abbey Road. I played that vinyl album to death and was extremely upset when my roommate (in the Army) took it! I have the CD now, though.
The Bee Gees (http://www.beegees.com/). "How Do You Mend a Broken Heart" was my most favorite song when it came out and that was when I became a fan. Saturday Night Fever only cemented that love!
Electric Light Orchestra (http://www.elo.biz/). A rock orchestra – I loved it! They had the greatest sound and I still listen to their music on my iPod. Out of the Blue is my favorite album (and I have the vinyl), but until I wrote this post, didn't realize it was finally on a CD. So yeah, I went and bought it.
Fleetwood Mac (http://www.fleetwoodmac.com/). When Rumours came out, I had never really paid much attention to them. But a friend of mine had and that's how I came to love their music. I think their sound is timeless (unlike some of the other 70's bands out there).
Huey Lewis and the News (http://hueylewisandthenews.com/). When "I Want a New Drug" came out, I misunderstood the lyrics and thought it was a song about a druggie, except that couldn't be right, because I liked the music! Then one day I actually listened to the words and then I was really hooked. And of course, what woman didn't think Huey Lewis was good looking? A perfect package! They still tour, and I've seen them in concert – twice. If they come this way again, I'll go. I love their music.
The Monkees (http://www.monkees.com/). Big fan of the TV show and it was a sad day when Davy Jones passed away. He was my favorite, by far. And while my friend was ebuying The Beatles' albums, I was buying The Monkees. We loved to create our own fake band and fake play along with the album (using my mother's knitting needles as drum sticks! – yeah, she would have killed me if she'd known). Of course, we were 9.
Moody Blues (http://moodybluestoday.com/). Days of Future Passed was my first Moody Blues album, because I just loved "Nights in White Satin." They were also the first concert I attended with my then future husband, back in 1978 or 1979.
So, did I do better this week in listing one of your favorites?
And how about Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings (as well as Jen Kessy and April Ross) in the women's beach volleyball? Go
