Talking at the dinner table tonight we got on the subejct on record players and such. While us girls were cleaning up dad brought up from the basement a big brown box of old records. Nik stated, "WOW! those Cd's are huge!!" : )
Dad than dug out his turntable, hooked it up, stuck a record in....and "Here Comes the Sun" by The Beatles started playing througout the house. I have never heard a record before and it was a new experiance! Mom and Dad began to tell us stories about their first record they bought and all those wonderful memories from their childhood.
I was stunned when i learned that, in their time, if you wanted to learn how to play a song from your favorite band you had to figure it out yourself without looking it up on the internet or watching a youtube video of it! I was totally speechless!!! :O Also when you wanted to change the song you couldn't just press a button, you had to go over to the turntable, and move the needle over till it hit the song you wanted!
Bridget than walked into the living room with her Ipod and mom said it is amazing how you can fit so much music on that littlet thing and by the push off a button play, pause, fast forward and rewind! Isn't amazing how times have changed!!
Listening to this music brought smiles to everyones faces! Nikita got up and began to dance with Bridget while mom and dad continued to sing along with the songs and dance to the twist!!!!!
What wonderful family memories this has brought that we can look back in ten years when Ipod will be gone and we will be able to listen to music by someother device! This brings me to a interesting question i cna ask you all! What do you think listening to music will be like in ten years???
