when I was 13 I discovered The Beatles and always had my transistor radio on. When my oldest daughter turned 13 she started with all the 90s groups...in high school her Art teacher introduced her to The Beatles and she listened to their music...My youngest daughter listened to the rap music of the early 2000s groups...I happened to be listening to The Beatles at home and she asked who I was listening too and replied The Beatles...She became a fan of the early Beatle love songs..My daughters enjoy country music, R and B Oldies, also late 60s and 70s artists plus their own generations music.

So Rare by Jimmy Dorsey.  It came out while Elvis Presley and Bill Haley were big hits.  We teenagers loved it too.

“Heart and Soul” by Hoagie Carmichael. The melody is now used by Train for “Play That Song”

“ Heart and Soul” is also the name of a charming movie staring Robert Downy Jr. 

It was the first song a piano teacher taught my father when he decided to learn to play the piano when I was a teen.

Easy - "If I Only Knew" by Tom Jones.  It's a staple at family gatherings.  EVERYONE, aged 7 to 77, rocks out.

My 41 year old likes Billy Joel, the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Elton John, Tupac and I could go on. His 4 year old is learning to also love those songs because his father does and they sing them together.

 

My youngest likes Jack Johnson, as well as many songs from the above. They both like 
Fleetwood Mac!

 

The songs they strongly dislike are any songs that I played over and over and over again in the car, by Phil Collins, THE BREAKFAST CLUB sound track, Van Halen and Barbra Streisand.

I think that all the music from the 60's-70's-80's. The talent was awesome and you could understand the words. To many of the artists died of drug overdoses BUT they live on through generations.
