Music of the Day  
Been spending the afternoon taking a trip down memory lane. In the 80s and 90s, I listened to A LOT of music. I absorbed it like mad.

But as I started to figure out who I was in terms of music, I started to sway to a distinct flavor. Sure, I've had phases where I was all about ethnic fushion or Enya. I would listen to Madonna and Whitney Houston. I went through a period of listening to just anime music. But in that critical time of self-development, I was into Poison, Def Leppard, Guns N' Roses, White Snake, Great White, Skid Row, Warrant, Damn Yankees, Metallica....just to name a few. I know loads more are escaping me.

All these groups had songs with a beat. I still run around screaming, "Cherry Pie!" or recall watching Metallica vids on MTV only to have my mom walk in and out because she was not quite sure what the heck I was watching.

So what is that music called? Hard rock? It seems to change by decade. Back in the 80s, some of this was considered metal. Today? Not so much. Many of these groups had big hits and went mainstream, but I am reluctant to call them "pop."

Ugh. I hate labels.

In other news, I have discovered that I have a bit of a streak of southern rock in me. Who knew.

I have a very large streak of Southern rock in me. That's where classic rock and roll hangs out these days.

I think that's why. And I tend to like the lyrics. They make me feel like coming home.

Eclectic music tastes are a sign of greatness...in my opinion at least. :) How's the head?

The head is a bit better. A few tremors of pain, but nothing like what happened over the weekend and Monday. Thanks :)

Hee! I love good ol fashioned southern rock (Skynard comes to mind - as do the Eagles) - I think the other bands ranged from 'hair' to mainstream metal.
