Nords, my dh would do that to his kids on his bike, embarrased them to death, they are now in turn doing the same things to their kids.

I guess things went downhill quickly after the police persuaded that one DJ to stop recruiting contestants for his "Strip for the Sky" competitions...

Good choice, Laurence, they're safe to listen to again. *I've been informed that both are no longer cool among the teen demographic. *They're regarded as "old" and "played out". *

I directed our kid's attention to Mariah Carey's 1990 "Vision of Love" on the radio and was admonished that there was no way the voice could be hers. *We had to dig out the CD and prove it.

Our kid used to love singing along with Mary J.'s performances on "Sesame Street". *My reminder of that earned me the silent treatment for nearly 15 minutes!

Re: Freakin Friday Tunes

Nords, as a 31 year old clinging to some semblance of youth and relevancy, your statement was not exactly comforting!

Mariah and Mary J. still get played on all the "hit" stations here, I guess it's to throw a bone to us senior citizens. I'm slowing being pushed off these stations, one second it's a good R&B song, next second I'm hearing "Get you drunk, get you drunk off my lovely lady lump!" WTF? Then comes another fake gangster rap track....lean wit' it, roll wit' it, slide wit' it, shop-vac wit' it, lay-away wit' it....I must be getting old and crotchety, but none of these guys hold a candle to 2pac and Biggy, and if I was totally wrong on that, how come every time they release another album from these long dead rappers it shoots to No.1 again, even when it's just a 3rd remix of the same songs?

But anyway, Mariah still looks plenty young (and hot) to me

You know, I think she's pretty hot. But I don't like her music and I heard her once in an interview and she just might be the dumbest person on the planet. I guess wearing ear plugs would fix all the issues I have with her.

Speaking of rap, is Emimem still in with the kiddies? I think the guy's awesome, very talented. It seems like all the musicians I like are total screwups, Rage, Sublime, Chili Peppers etc.

No, not my high school. Our kid's.

The embarrassed look on her face-- priceless.

sorry Nords from the back you're a ringer for Ted ! Its too good to not use again....
