Yup, you definitely pegged it....I turn 43 in a matter of hours, and I have a 13 year-old who turns 14 next week. For years she has rebelled against "Mom's music" because of course it's uncool at her age to like *anything* that falls into the "genre" of Mom and Dad music (even when it's light years better than most of the crap that passes for music these days).



Gee... I've been a fan and follower of my parents' music ever since I was a kid (they are 73 and 70, so we're talking 1950's-'60's music). My ears were denizens of the local oldies station by the time I was 12.

How long ago did she receive the Purple Rain soundtrack (which is undoubtedly one of the best and most iconic albums from the '80s). What's not to love about that group of songs?



She is 34 now--and I know I was in college, so probably 1984 when it was released--she would have been 9 then. So I'm thinking my sister would have rather had that little talk a few years down the road! :lol:

Bret Michaels at Top Facility in Arizona (http://www.tmz.com/2010/04/30/bret-michaels-arizona-hospital-barrow-neurological-institute/)

That attitude will do wonders for his recovery. Still cautiously optimistic. :)

I'm glad to hear this.
He's in the best facility for this problem. Combined with his determination, his chances for recovery are maximized.
He has a long way to go, I'm sure; but, our prayers and thoughts are working.

Too true!! :lol:

OT here, but back when the PRMC was on their witch hunt crusade against vulgar and inappropriate lyrics, they compiled a list of what they called the "Filthy Fifteen" - the songs they found most offensive and spurred Tipper and her Minions to take on the recording industry. Here's the list of the horrible songs that were corrupting the Youth of America (basically anyone in the US now aged 35-45 ):

1. Darling Nikki (Prince, for referring to sex and masturbation)
2. Sugar Walls (Sheena Easton, for sexual reference and innuendo)
3. Eat Me Alive (Judas Priest, for sexual lyrics)
4. Strap On Robbie Baby (Vanity - I think that' was the lead singer of Vanity 6, for sexual lyrics)
5. Bastard (Motley Cre, for violence)
6. Let Me Put My Love Into You (AC/DC, for sexual lyrics)
7. We're Not Gonna Take It (Twisted Sister, for violence)
8. Dress You Up (in my love) (Madonna, for sexual references)
9. Animal (W.A.S.P., for foul language and graphic sexual lyrics)
10. High 'N Dry (Def Leppard, for lyrics about booze and drugs)
11. Into the Coven (Mercyful Fate, for references to the Occult)
12. Trashed (Black Sabbath, for lyrics about using drugs and booze
13. In My House (The Mary Jane Girls, for sexual lyrics)
14. Posessed (Venom, for lyrics about the Occult)
15. She Bop (Cyndi Lauper, for lyrics about masturbation)

Looking at that list, all I can do is :rofl:

That stuff is like a fricking Radio Disney playlist compared to songs today. I'm surprised 'ole Tipper didn't have an apoplectic fit when Luke Skywalker and the 2 Live Crew released their album, not to mention a lot of today's Hip-Hop, Rap, Metal, and Pop. What in the world would she think of Lady GaGa? :rofl:
The joke about the PMRC is that they became a music industry marketer's best friend. Warning labels made kids want the albums as a form of forbidden fruit. Plus, having a warning label on an album allowed bands to be more explicit; they could just point to the label and say "we warned you, so why complain?"

Your right about the PMRC lable, the record would sell out. But the 80's were nothing compared to now-a-days. Some of the stuff my 21 year old listens to is bad. There are no innuendos they come flat out and say it.
My son loves Tom Petty, Pink Floyd, The Who and others. Anyone remember the movie Spinal Tap that ended 80's heavy metal? I love that movie and also Rock Star.

Spinal Tap is :respec: and the godfather of the "mockumentary" genre of movies, not to mention it's an absolutel riot :rofl: .

In Bret Michaels news, there's going to be a press conference today at 12 noon (not sure if that's EDT or local time in Arizona) to update his condition and (I'm assuming) finally taking questions from the media. I'll post more about it when I have more info.

Thanks, Cyn. My thoughts and prayers are with Bret and I'm glad he has such a strong positive attitude. My oldest niece, now 23, had to grow up listening to the music of the 70s, 80s and 90s because of her dad (my brother) and me.

The results from having to listen to our music is that she absolutely loves Bon Jovi, Heart, Bryan Adams, Kid Rock, Fleetwood Mac, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, Poison, The Police/Sting, Journey, etc.

My niece e-mailed me a link to her favorite song from Poison when she found out what happened to Bret and asked me to share it with everyone. :respec:

I was the same way - my parents had a juke box in our basement/playroom when I was a little kid, and it was filled with all of my mothers 45's from her years in high school as well as a lot of popular music from the 60's and early 70's. My favorite songs when I was three were "At the Hop" by Danny and the Juniors, "Poison Ivy" by The Coasters, "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On" by Jerry Lee Lewis, and "Bird Dog" by The Everly Brothers :rofl: .

Bret's sister has said that Bret's walking now, but has a lot of back pain. She also said there was no way he would be ready to tour again late May, and that she's appalled at reports that Bret faked his illness to generate more attention for his tour.

:eek: People are saying that?

Faking a cold is one thing. Faking a BRAIN HEMMORRHAGE? I don't think so.

He's out of the hospital and expected to make a full recovery (http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20366294,00.html).

I wonder if Trump to give to the Barrow Brain Tumor Research Center during the finale, even though it's not one of the charities originally being represented.

Yay Bret! :cheer2:

I'm SO happy to hear this. :) He is indeed one very lucky man. I hope he really listens to his doctors' advice and takes very good care of himself, gets lots of rest and gives himself ample time to heal.

Another report I read said it was "unclear" whether he would be able to appear on the live Celebrity Apprentice finale on May 23rd. I'd love to see him there ... but only if it does not compromise his recovery in any way.
