Z's Muzic Zone


Welcome to Z's Muzic Zone!

I have enjoyed music for over 30 years. My first childhood memory is back from 1973. I remember hearing "The Most Beautiful Girl" by Charlie Rich in a tavern/restaurant/gift shop in South Dakota. Two other songs stand out in my mind around that same time period: Olivia Newton-John's "Let Me Be There" and "If You Love Me (Let Me Know)".

We moved from South Dakota to Arizona in 1975. Mom and dad would alternate driving. Dad during the day, mom during the night. I can remember sitting up in the front seat with mom listening to 8-tracks. Driving through Texas and New Mexico, I can remember such songs as Freddy Fender's "Before The Next Teardrop Falls" and "Wasted Days And Wasted Nights", Donna Fargo's "The Happiest Girl In The Whole U.S.A." and "Funny Face", Tom T. Hall's "Sneaky Snake" and "I Love" and many others I don't seem to recollect at the moment. While living in Arizona, mom and I would clean the house from top to bottom every couple weeks. She would turn on music by Del Shannon, Lynn Anderson, Elvis, The Everly Brothers, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty, Jeannie C. Riley, The Dixie Cups and countless others. She had hundreds of vinyl albums and 8-tracks. Looking back, I'd have to say she listened mainly to country, country/pop and pop music. That is what I was exposed to growing up. I loved the music, though, and still do to this day.

During the late 70's, I listened to disco on the radio. Although we didn't have the radio on much, I still got my fair share of it. I religiously watched "Solid Gold" on television beginning in 1980.

In January, 1981, I bought my first album. I worked a paper route and saved up money to buy ABBA's "Super Trouper". To this day, it is the only one of four vinyl albums I still own. I had hundreds of others before they were stolen a few years back.

1981 was the first year I started listening to Top 40 radio stations continuously and started to develop my own personal taste in music. October 1982, I buy my first two 45's. They are Toni Basil's "Mickey" and Laura Branigan's "Gloria". This begins my singles collection.

To this date, I have over 1790 singles in my collection. I also have over 190 albums, all but four are cassettes and cd's. I am not big on buying albums. I tend to have to love a few songs on an album before I buy. Not in all cases, though. But, singles are a whole other story.

For about a ten year period, I kept track of every single that hit the Top 40 charts. I would listen to American Top 40 every Sunday night and record each song on a 3 x 5 card and track its progress. I had to eventually give up on that hobby due to my job taking me away on travel for weeks on end.

I enjoy almost all eras and genres of music. I do, however, tend to lean more toward late 70's, 80's and early 90's. Those were some awesome years of music for me personally. I really don't get into heavy metal or gangsta rap. Everything else, I find much to love on different levels.

I host a weekly music trivia game on AOL. In that game, I include ALL music eras and genres. Nothing is left out. Every player deserves to have their style or genre of music used at one time or another. Although I may not care for a certain era or genre of music, I do RESPECT it as music and respect those who do like something opposite my tastes. I am a true music lover, through and through.

I have put together a listing of all my singles and albums. Feel free to browse around at your leisure. You may search through artists, singles or years to find a certain song. Included with each single is some info about the song. Song lyrics are also available. These are the most accurate lyrics you'll find anywhere.

Enjoy The Zone!
