Growing up, we all can attest to riding in vehicles with our parents or even just being in the house when our parents played their tunes that they like. These times in our childhood molded our ears to like certain music today. These are my favorite 9 songs I grew up listening to from both of my parents and what inspired my music taste today. The genres are mixed so this isn’t just one genre or subgenre of music.
1. Lenny Williams – ‘Cause I Love You
2. Sade – Smooth Operator
3. Soundgarden – Black Hole Sun
4. Seal – Kiss from a Rose
5. Erykah Badu – Next Lifetime
6. Maxwell – Lifetime
7. Xscape – Just Kickin’ It
8. Joe – All the Things
9. Maxwell – Fortunate
Shout out to all the parents of us Gen Z people but especially my parents. You all shaped the musical culture today and I personally will appreciate you all for this. All of these songs are on all streaming services.
