We’ve heard that musical taste for a lifetime is usually formed in 7th grade. We’re not sure why – maybe emotions are heightened and we’re more sensitive in the early teen years? Perhaps we have less on our minds as a youngster and are more in tune, pun intended, with the music around us.
Regardless, whether your tastes were formed in 7th grade or later, we’re loving the whole 80s redux vibe in music these days, aren’t you?
