[Error: unknown template qotd]Oh yes. My childhood years. I would say for the most part, they were a musical abyss. My mother, having come from a strict conservative house, really only liked the Beach Boys and a few choice hymns. My father, having come from a non-conservative household, liked bands such as Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin growing up, but went through a "purifying stage" when he was in college and got rid of all his mint conditioned LPs (*moment of silence for this tragedy*). He wanted to be a "wholesome" family man, which left us listening to Julie Andrews singing the Sound of Music, but that's not really a band.
However, there was one group my parents seemed to find suitable enough for our ears, and that was Toto. I remember immediately liking "Africa" for its exotic beats and soaring vocals.
I still love it to this day, and have to restrain myself from bursting out into passionate song when I'm in public.

I blame this on my lack of musical diversity. Had I not been so musically starved, I might not feel so compelled to sing my lungs out whenever I hear a favorite song.
