    I've loaded the juke box with My Way and New York New York on many a festive occasion. Frank could certainly sing, and act. I just don't care for Frank, the man.

    That's fair, well known to be a drunken lout and a bully. Having said that, he was the greatest entertainer of the last 50 years and arguably the greatest ever.

    The only artists that can get me to change the channel or just turn something off is Taylor Swift & Kanye West

    Fly me to the Moon is good, and several others are somewhat aphrodisiacal in the right situation.

    I know, that's a derailment. I'm on a manic swing.

    I've got to leave out much of the music produced over the past 15 years or so because there isn't much that sticks with me, except for maybe Arctic Monkeys and Kings of Leon, but the bands which have been popular but which I have never been able to appreciate include

    Beach Boys
    Van Halen
    Nirvana
    Grateful Dead
    Kiss
    Bon Jovi
    Hootie and the Blowfish
    Rush
    Wings

    Plenty more but I have to run.

    The Beatles. Plenty of respect; no denying their talent or impact. But they're just a little too precious for me.

    Nirvana. Same deal; plenty of respect, and they needed to happen when they happened. But just not my cup of tea.

    Steve Miller. Lots of hits. But I can't escape the feeling that this must be the kind of stuff Homer Simpson listens to. In fact, I can imagine most Steve Miller songs being sung in Homer Simpson's voice...

    Amy Winehouse. Good voice, but I've heard it before.

    The Grateful Dead. Probably because I associate them with my first gf's mom, who was a Deadhead and basically a half-zombie junkie when I met her. Just lots of associations with bad memories.

    Virtually any disco. The Bee Gees did have one or two good tunes.

    I hesitate to Say "Fleetwood Mac," because the Peter Green era was pretty good. But when he's out of the picture and they start bringing in their girlfriends and writing songs about their personal problems with each other-big ol' bag of "nope." Those are two different bands.

    So is the first minute of this video awesome because of the cars, the music and lack of vocals? Or does the music still spoil it for you?

    I know the Dead isn't for everybody but I also think many who don't like them haven't heard many of their songs.

    Ripple
    Friend of the Devil
    Shakedown Street
    Uncle Johns Band

    and this one:

    I don't hate anyone or any music really. I guess that's what makes my life pretty easy at times.

    But I will tell you, if you answered Fleetwood Mac in this thread, they are my existence and you can go straight to hell.

    On the McVie baseline from the Chain alone you're nuts. Good day to you sirs.








    ...and Stevie Nicks still rocks and is not only not a "girlfriend in the band" but one of the better songwriters in rock history.

    Most country music and most rap and hip hop ****.

    Not many I dislike, but I have a strange category for Lou Reed and Elvis Costello--two "icons" that I first heard when they were mailing it in later on, and I wondered why they were icons. Then I heard their "iconic" stuff, and my opinion of them didn't change.

    Big Star, Gram Parsons, The MC5--always heard what legendary, influential acts they were, so I finally searched out their music, and didn't hear anything to write home about.

    You are obviously begging for a reaction. Which reaction can I give you that will make you happy?
