"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

Music Memories

I'm showing my age, but I remember when I was in high school we had dances Friday nights after most home football and basketball games. We had live bands, no disc jockeys, and we actually danced.  Each group or club took turns sponsoring the dances as fundraisers, we never sold candy or wrapping paper. :)

You could also travel to the "big city" and attend concerts for next to nothing.  Tickets were less than 20 bucks and you could see STYX (my favorite) who I saw in concert at least 8 times, and The Eagles, Boston, Chicago, Loverboy, Molly Hatchet, Van Halen, all the big groups of the 70's and early 80's. We'd go to concerts several times a year, sometimes weekly. I still like to pop in a CD and listen to the "good old songs."

Don't get me wrong, I like the music my kids listen to today, but by taste these days tends to run more in the Country genre.  Right now, Rascal Flatts are my favs, but also like Trace Adkins, Tim McGraw and Sugarland.  But these days I only get as close as a CD, tickets to concerts can be outrageous. Plus I'd have to sit in seat and everyone knows the best place to be at a concert is in the mosh pit of people on the floor.
