My mother is OBSESSED with...
My dad likes a lot of rock bands (especially a lot that I don't know the names of).
But my mom, I always listen to music around her & introduce her to the new hits, so she likes a lot of artists that I do :p
Some I can name off the top of my head
Glee Cast (she watches the show too :D)
lots of oldies :sick:
Black Eyed Peas
Britney Spears [a little]
Ke$ha [only 'Tik Tok']
Lady Antebellum [only 'Need You Now']
Barry Manilow :sick:
Miley Cyrus :p
and plenty more..
Lady GaGa, Christina Aguilera, Madonna, Fergie, Alexandra Burke.

4/26/2010, 11:01 PM
The Isley Brothers.
Peaches & Herb.
...as I'm scanning through her iPod. :-*
My dad is an old fuddy-duddy. I guess he only listens to what interests him, and is pretty much close-minded.
My mom introduced me to Dolly Parton at a young age, and I've been a stan ever since. She's pretty annoyed with Beyoncé, though :sad: (which is probably my fault, despite "Check on It" being her favorite Beyoncé song.). :eddie:
My mom listens to Mowtown classics
My dad loved listening to southern Rock before his passing
My dad mainly listens to oldies + some weird alternative stuff. My mom basically listens to anything. Right now she loves I Need You Now, Whataya Want From Me, and Baby (haha). The most shocking thing she's ever liked was Blah Blah Blah, until she heard the non-radio version ;)

2. Thinks Gaga is the next Madonna but BIGGER. She adores everything Gaga does even the bad stuff that I don't like to see Gaga doing.
3. Is always interested to see what Britney is doing. Britney: trendsetter.

She got me back into loving Britney again. She loves Blackout more than I do.
