I like to pretend that I have a modicum of hipness when it comes to music. I love The Killers, I'm into They Might Be Giants. I like Ben Folds (sorry, Ms. Pru) and Rufus Wainwright and other not-so-well-known bands.
But some of my musical preferences are downright old-fashioned. Or just plain odd. Witness:
I love this man. Love. Him.
I used to sing this stuff in high school. For real, live people. And loved it.
(Sorry for the lack of an actual video here - the live versions all sucked.)
And I know this was a tv theme song, but the show was brilliant and the song even more so.
If you ever have a chance to go see Great Big Sea, go. They are fantastic in concert. Fanfuckingtastic. (Just the other day, while I was putting things away out of one of the random boxes of junque that had yet to be unpacked, I ran across the bones I stole off the stage when I was at their show at Avalon.)
