What were you favourite bands when you were a kid or a teenager? What do you think that says about you and your community?

The TEDsters were born in different eras, different places all over the world.

What music you chose, why you do it and what that expresses says a lot about the person, the times, the moral paradigm and political landscape.

Music has always been an integral part of my life. I've been a goth, an emo, a rock-girl, a punk and more, both listening and making music, depending on the period. Some bands that have influenced me are still a good reference, some of them are just a sentimental insight.

Back to the question - what music did you chose when you were young and what do you think it says about the times, the community you grew up in and you yourself, as a person?

In other words - some like Iron Maiden, some like U2, some like other bands, some like everything, some do not. Why do you think that is?

  • Aug 6 2013: Well ! I adore music.When I was a teen I've loved the girls band 'pussycat dolls' even if I'm a boy because I loved their beauty , voice , dance and their music above all the voice of Nicole scherzinger.She has got a catchy and a powerful voice and she can deal with any kind of music such as pop , opera , rock...ect that's why I loved her and i'm still adoring what she does.Moreover she is modest , simple and really funny as she seems a normal person as well as I listen to other kinds of music in which lyrics speak and make you living the story of the singer (love stories , life , troubles and so on).To sum up I would have to say music has benifits on all human beings without exception , but one should learn from it and try to inspire from the message behind the insturments and melodies. Thank you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      PS. Nicole is not bad, I've heard only two songs, both were catchy.

      Agreed on the benefits.
