    wvalady1968: I learned to really like country and western in my 20s, and still follow it when I'm in a certain mood. Right now, one of my faves is Buddy Jewell. ["I wanna thank everyone who ever told me NO! Pack it up and get back home, Boy." ;)]

    I like the really oldies like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin sometimes, too.

    But my newest obsession is swing. I fell in love with Squirrel Nut Zippers, but they can't hold a candle to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. I put the CD in and crank up the volume, and there's absolutely no way I could be down! It's great when I have to do housework or something I don't like. Except that I find myself dancing more than working. :D

    Anyone out there like swing, too, or am I old fashioned?

    What do YOU like?

    wvalady1968: Sorry. I really did look around first, but I missed it. Don't know how. It's title is obvious enough.

    Now, you know my secret. I'm not perfect.

    gigantikok: One word: Eighties.

    All 80's, all the time.

    I freakin' LOVE IT all. All the new wave stuff, all the stupid pop, all of the old school rap...everything, even a lil Bruce Hornsby!

    Oh, and MJ. MJ is the man.

    jackinman: I'm into R&B huge Motown fan here, all the oldies from the 60's, 70's, and 80's and of course the new stuff is good. I also like Jazz, some rock, most definately I love my salsa, (Celia Cruz may you rest in Peace), AZUCAR!!!!

    I like some country music, John Denver, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings type of stuff. I don't know much titles but love the music. I'm also down with a lil rap music but not the hard core stuff, word up man, fersizzle!!
