Following my recent rush of listening to Vast
and Brand New
, I've decided to regress slightly. In my musical tastes, that is... I'm going back through my CD collection, through all the CDs that I actually liked enough to buy and seeing whether I still like them...
Strangely, this has meant that I've been listening to some very weird mixes of music - Good Charlotte
has come up a lot, as has Blink 182
, and with a fair amount of Tom Lehrer
thrown in for good measure... Billy Gilman
has even made an appearance, which is mildly frightening...
I've come to the conclusion that some of my development as a discerning music listener has definitely been a good thing. While Good Charlotte
are fun, and appeals to my sense of fun, I'm not sure that they fit into the category of intelligent music. I wish I still listened to Robert Miles
as much as I used to, 'though. Dreamland
was the first CD I ever owned, I think (Possibly the second after Blue
), so it has a fair amount of significance in my head...
