My father probably lost all his records in his two divorces and dozens of moves. But he was awfully fond of Tom Lehrer and most classical. Apparently he played folk songs for his first two kids so Pete Seger might be up there too... But I don't know.
My mother's favourite record... Rocky Horror soundtrack, I guess. Since that's the only *record* I specifically remember her playing. But she had a mixtape from a frriend which she played to death as well.. She always talked about how her brother stole her favorite records... siblings sweatdrop
