Mallory Ortberg asked her Twitter followers to share their stories about their dads’ music. People couldn’t wait to embarrass their fathers with silly memories.
Um, my parents had this one, too.
@mallelis also my dads ringtone (on a flip phone, of course). Ballad of the Green Berets.— princesspotatomagic (@LacunaKale) December 6, 2015

@mallelis We had to buy my Dad a new Steely Dan Aja CD because he wore out the first one listening to it on repeat in his car.— beegibs (@beegibs) December 6, 2015
Oh, I remember when that album came out. I wore the grooves down.
@mallelis The soundtrack to my childhood holidays to Scotland was Fleetwood Mac's Tusk, and only Tusk, for what seemed like years and years.— Adam S. Leslie (@MrAdamSLeslie) December 6, 2015

@mallelis Um, well okay. Here goes. My dad wrote the lime in the coconut song.— Kiefo Nilsson (@konilsson) December 6, 2015
