    There was one singer that I never really got into and that was Diana Ross. My mother loved her since her days with the Supremem, brought all of her solo albums and The Supremes(A-Track,LPS, tapes, or CD). My father didn't like her voice at all. He would always say to her, "Same voice, same dictation...it doesn't matter what genre she would try. It is the same boring voice I grew tired off." And they would get into a fight and you know where that would lead. But all my life, I never really gotten in her music at all. It didn't matter if it was the Bee Gees or MJ penned songs, it is just that her voice never really captured me at all as a lover of music.

    Was there ever a singer your parents loved, but you really didn't care for?

    Dinah Shore, and just about anybody country since Hank Williams.

    I would agree, with the one exception being Merle Haggard.

    I liked both of those guys. In fact Bing was one of my heroes. (Fellow clarinet player.)

    Dean, not so much. I still see infomercials for box set of his old variety show and some of the things he did I am pretty impressed with.

    As a teen in the late 60s/early 70s, I was all about Dylan, Mitchell, Collins, Baez, Beatles, Ronstadt... still have lots of their LPs. Had no interest in Sinatra, Fitzgerald, Bennett, Vaughan, O'Day, Holiday-- old-timey music for my parents' generation. Now, I can't get enough of the 40s-60s jazz that I disdained in my youth-- and don't give a damn about what I liked back then. (Still regard Baez especially with awe for her talent and activism, but as far as the musical genre goes, no.)

    About the only thing tangible I ever liked about Dino was his Celeb Roasts series.

    Interesting thread! I just wanted to comment that Shore always struck me as a shallow pop singer, but I've read that after her mainstream popularity waned in the early 60s she did some fine jazz recordings. Have not heard them, but on principle like her as a Southern Jew accused of being Black! So will eventually seek them out.

    I'll second that Ugh: Ugh Ugh

    My parents were always AM-radio, Top-40s music people, as such most of "their music" was just so much innocuous pop trash.

    But occasionally, they'd latch onto some song or artist (like Neil Diamond) that they just felt dovetailed nicely with their sense of self pity and victimization.

    I learned of one of my mother's infidelities after my father suddenly became fixated on this song.

    Somehow my mother felt this song best expressed her frustration over my sister's autism.

    Ugh Ugh Ugh Ugh

    Old Dino's the best!
    Liked Bing too and Jim Reeves, Elvis and Connie Francis.
    Could not get into Pat Boone though and never wild about Cliff Richard either...
