When I was younger, I would listen to my parents' albums on the stereo in the living room. I'd listen to movie soundtracks like Dr. Zhivago, The Sound of Music, and Shirley Temple; crooners like Andy Williams (I loved his Moon River!) and Tony Bennett; and classical music (while I twirled around the living room like a ballerina). I vaguely remember when the Beatles came to the U.S. My friend from across the street and I loved them! I liked Elvis Presley, too, and loved watching his movies, but my music tastes changed as I got older.

There's another cabinet just like this one full of records.

I loved the Monkees when they hit the scene in the late 60s, and I watched their TV show every week. I had a crush on members Davy Jones and Mickey Dolenz. I loved watching American Bandstand and Soul Train on Saturdays. There are many other bands and many songs that I liked during my teenage years. Just Google "popular music 1960s 1970s," and most of what I liked will be listed. I'd listen to pop music on radio station WVLD every night under the covers!
