I actually saw Journey and Glass Tiger at the Sports Arena. It was my first concert. I still kind of like Journey, though. Remember that "Separate Ways" video? It looked kind of cheesy, them playing the air guitars. Oh, Styx. I dug them. But now I think they're kind of cheesy.

I remember being turned on to the Violent Femmes. I played a tape of theirs for a girl. She hated it. Her mom was trying to be supportive, but she didn't care for it either. I still pretty much like everything I did as a kid, except for speed metal. My tastes were influenced by my mom; a lot of oldies and Elvis. I hate to admit that sometimes I see someone on American Idol I enjoy, like Chris Daughtry.
From Encinitas (Publisher)
Black Sabbath. I don't like them so much anymore. Kiss is another. I liked Wham! I didn't even know they were gay. I used to listen nonstop to the Beverly Hills Cop theme song. That keyboard thing. I don't even know who it's by. I loved Queen. But I still like them now.
From Mira Mesa (Registered Nurse)
That song by the comedian. It sort of made her a one-hit wonder in music. Tracey Ullman, that's her name. I liked Oingo Boingo back then, and not as much anymore. Oh, Men at Work were my favorite group back then.
From Ramona (Homemaker)
I liked Boy George and Culture Club. But, a lot of the stuff I liked as a kid I still do. I liked Madonna then, as well as now. I liked country. I loved all those musicals, like Grease. My kids watch High School Musical now and like it. I do too. It reminds me of Grease and those other musicals I liked.
From Poway (Software Engineer)
I liked a few cheesy things as a kid. I would watch reruns of The Monkees. I love the Beatles now. It seems that is common with the Monkees; people liked them when they were kids. People that liked the Beatles as kids probably still do. I remember as a kid, I played the Beach Boys song "Surfin' Safari" over and over.
