Finding music that appeals to you, your teens, and your parents doesn’t have to be impossible. Depending on your teens’ tastes, you may find they know more older music than you’d imagine. Games like Bioshock introduced them to the old standards.
When you’re at your parents’ house and your teen is with you, music can make the routine chores pass by quickly. Try these five albums that your parents, your teens, and you will all enjoy. These albums are most likely to bridge the generation gap.
Bioshock 2: The Official Soundtrack by Various Artists
Since Bioshock is the game that introduced many teens and young adults to the classics, it’s a good album to start with. Among the tracks are Billie Holiday’s “Night and Day” and Fred Astaire’s “We Saw the Sea.”
Cheek to Cheek by Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett
Popular pop artist Lady Gaga and crooner Tony Bennett recorded an album together in 2014. The album sold more than 130,000 copies in the first week and debuted in first place on the Billboard 200. It features classics like “Anything Goes” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing).”
Duets – Frank Sinatra
In the early 1990’s, Frank Sinatra agreed to make a duets album with current singers. The goal was to introduce his music to a new generation. The line-up was impressive and included musicians like U2’s Bono, Aretha Franklin, and Gloria Estefan. It did well enough that Duets II was released a year later and featured Jimmy Buffett, Willie Nelson, and others.
Duets: An American Classic by Tony Bennett
Following suit, in 2006, Tony Bennett teamed up with artists like George Michael, John Legend, Sting, and Stevie Wonder. Like the Frank Sinatra album, this one gained a lot of attention and landed Bennett a Grammy.
Rake It In: The Greatest Hits by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
This is a band you may not know, but your teens may. The punk band only does covers and some of them are outstanding. Their greatest hits feature covers of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” the Beach Boys’ “Sloop John B,” and more than a dozen others.

When you’re at your job or tending to your obligations at your home, you can have elderly care aides helping your parents with rides, groceries, and cleaning.
