Who did you idolize as a teenager?Did you go crazy for the Beatles? Ga-ga over Duran Duran. In love with Justin Bieber? Did you think Elvis was the livin end?
My answer to the question is,”None of the above”. I did not know any of them, maybe they are or were super talented people,but their voices did not reach me where I lived as a teenager.
Since this is a prompt about teen age idol, my answer is I was exposed to Tagore, Rafi, Talat, And Lata to name a few.
My idol was and still is Rabindranath Tagore. His song lyrics are clearly awesome, he loved nature and wrote quite a few songs on nature and was very popular where I lived.
His songs had a calming effect on people including me, we understood them and learned to appreciate them.
