I am doing a 30 Day Challenge. I'm no going to do it for 30 day straight; that has already been established...so on with it....
6. Your view on mainstream music.
I have no view. I can see nothing from atop my lofty perch or superiority. All kidding aside, I have no idea. I don't listen to the radio, does anyone? I am so woefully uninformed when it comes to current music. I usually find myself listening to 1st Wave on XM Radio; 80's alternative or new wave stuff. I am a huge fan of jazz, but old school stuff: Coltrane, Miles, Parker, Nina, Ella, Ellington...you get it. I also like classical and am not too picky about that. Yes, I know all the words to many classic rock tunes too, but I'm looking backwards instead of ahead.
If I find myself liking something current, I've usually found it quite by accident. Usually during a musical interlude during a podcast, a commercial, a movie, etc. My current 'Repeat item' on my ipod are these two songs.
"Riverside" by Agnes Obel
and "I Follow Rivers" by Lykke Li (the river theme here is merely coincidence)
