My Music Monday

It seems I have a "baffling taste in music" - so says reader / commenter, Deedles.

I'm not calling her out or anything (honest!) - and she is certainly not the first person to say such a thing - though her verbiage might be the nicest version of the thoughts many might have regarding my music.

Brettcanjun was a lot less subtle.

I'm not her to defend my selections.  I'm not even sure I can explain them. I like what I like.  To me, "baffling" is speed metal, but hey, if you like it play it...........through headphones.

I totally get I'm somewhat across the board, but not all over it. Yes, in the same 15 minute car ride it is possible you'll hear Sister Sledge, Dwight Yoakam and a-ha.

I like new music, but not in great amounts. I think there is a lot of schlock out there. My opinion of course.

I don't know if Tim Finn baffles or not. He is the founder and leader of Split Enz, the band his brother, Neil, would join near the end of the band's existence and who would provide its biggest hit.

Tim would join Neil's band, Crowded House, for one album/tour, but mostly does his own thing, or team up with his brother for the occasional album.......well two in like two and a half decades.

While the video below is Tim with Crowded House, the song, "Show a Little Mercy" is a solo outing. There's just no other video out there of this song.

In my defense, I did say baffling to me. It wasn't a criticism, just a semi observation. Maybe I should've gone with eclectic. Baffling was probably easier for me to spell :) Music is relative, like Chinese food. Everybody likes something different or different eating joints. That's the best analogy I can come up with. It's six a.m. here and coffee is awaiting.
By the way, your taste in movies is also ba...uh eclectic :)
