ANSWER ME THIS
IN MY OWN WORDS...
I've been a music lover all my life thanks to my dad who used to buy me 45's of what was currently topping the charts when I was a kid. I grew up totally digging The Eagles, Jethro Tull, Elton John, Jim Stafford, Fleetwood Mac, The Hollies, ABBA, ELO and Olivia Newton-John. Then, when I was 12, as much as I loved Rick Springfield like every other girl my age, I also became drawn to the music of Ozzy Osbourne and Judas Priest which led me into a love affair with a ton of 80's hair/glam/thrash and heavy metal bands. After finding an acceptance (and now a love for) the sounds of the 90s, I have a developed a love and appreciation for various genres of music. There isn't a day that goes by in my life without music - suddenly an appropriate lyric will pop into my head or a melody will bring back a memory. It's magical!
