    Huh? If you don't buy the albums and you don't listen to the stations

    you had options growing up that I did not. every station I could get was AOR or Black radio, (which covered blues, gospel, R&B, some reggae and some jazz but not enough or either, nothing African). I really don't see how you heard them any other way than by accident

    then you don't hear the musc as often. I can count on one hand the number of times I've heard a Madonna song all the way thru when I was in control of the stereo.

    Bohemian Rhapsody and Hotel Cali came about during my teen years, so I feel a bit differently about it than you might even if you're only five or six years younger than I am.

    Like I said, I don't think most of you like ANY of this stuff. Most of you don't like ANY hits. In fact, most of you have a fashionably hip dislike for popular culture in general- food, music, beer, films, literature, television shows... the posturing shows thru more often than it doesn't. Even with the artists who have some tunes I like (Bruce), there's still this undercurrent of Oh, They Were Better Before They Recorded What You Like. There's something fundamentally wrong with y'all if you dislike everything that so many other people like.

    I was there for the late 70s and early 80s rap. What made it to mainstream radio was NOT very appealing to me. I hadn't yet heard the rap that I want to reflect this or that feeling, still haven't totally. FWIW, I see rap not as a genre but as something people do with their voices to music. The music decides what it is. Uneasy Rider and Devil... Georgia are country tunes. Big Bad John, same thing. Pop Music is pop. But as far as I'm concerned, they are rap tunes, not to be so separated from storytelling tunes.

    The nephew of Alice Coltrane and the grandson of Marilyn McLeod the writer of Love Hangover. Man had Anderson Paak on this track and he worked with the creator of Cowboy Bebop (Not the Netflix version) to make this video.

    Speaking of Cowboy Bebop, the soundtrack for the original lives in my head rent free. Especially the opening and ending themes.

    I know of only the White Album beats, but it sounds like a cool idea on its face.

    I hate lists that you have to scroll thru, almost as much as I hate lists you have to click thru. Web designers, gimme your list of 100 and then comment.

    I usually enjoy the rankings you post (even if I don't think rankings matter much beyond those that measure sales), but formats like that bug the shit out of me.

    Can I get your take on Matisyahu? As a unorthodox Jew, if that is he right term, I was curious. I have had Jewish friends range from, it's cool to see the Orthodox move forward, to whatever, they can miss with that stuff to screw him and then for trying to fake cool and not act like their jerks.

    All the best stuff in the world is a result of cultures
    meeting and synthesizing. But in the case of Matisyahu, my impression is that he’s practicing straight-up cultural appropriation of the very worst kind. It’s basically theft.

    I go to the Yahoo! web page to check my email and to see if anything happened in the world important enough to rise above all the entertainment news (usually no). But today they had the headline "Eagles' Don Henley takes the stand at 'Hotel California' lyrics trial" and for a brief happy moment I thought he was finally going to prison for his crimes but it turns out it was just some court case about who owns some papers. God damn clickbait. I was so disappointed.

    Were it not for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, I wouldn't have discovered funk artists like the Meters as young as I did. George Clinton did produce one of their albums after all.

    Anyway, they can play, Flea especially. But I haven't really had any interest in them in ages aside from the occasional for old times sake listen.

    Also, they wrote the best athlete song in Magic Johnson.
