My dad was a DJ for proms and wedding and stuff for years. I have always grown up with mainstream music (which is considered oldies now) And now, I am around pre-teens and teens a lot. Having a daughter that age as well, I am pretty up to date on mainstream music. I am not fond of most of the rap. I do like some, but nothing too hardcore. My husband listens to alternative and christian rock. I pretty much like all of that. My daughter and I listen to a lot of just pop music. We listen to XM radio in the car. We listen to channels like Radio Disney (some of that crap I cannot stand...it is too fabricated and all starts to sound the same). I like most of the pop stuff. Pink and Maroon 5 are my favorites. We listen to country as well. Both 90's country and today's stuff. I pretty much like anything that has a good beat and I can sing along to. I love flipping over to the 90's channel and jamming out to some Vanilla Ice, Smashing Pumpkins, En Vogue, etc.... I do not encourage my daughter to dress or act like any current artist. Taylor Swift being an exception, I believe she dresses modestly and like a young person in the spotlight should. Whether these people want to accept it or not, people look at them for guidance on how to act and dress and treat people. OK, I am off my soapbox. I don't like a lot of profanity in our music, because my daughter doesn't like it and I am okay with that. We don't really watch music videos so I can't really comment on that.
I leave you with my current favorite songs right now.
