Ennui

One sign of growing up is that I no longer have qualms about listening to allegedly girlie music like Air Supply any more. I currently have a playlist that comprises Goodbye and Makin' Love Out of Nothin' At All, (both by the Messrs Supply), So Young by the Corrs, and Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now by Starship. Nice, wonderful background music while one tries to sift through, and somehow magically reduce, one's emails.

Oh, and I have Informer by Snow for nostalgic cheap thrills. And some Shaggy, and even Lick it by 20 Fingers. My credentials as ex-rock journalist and wearer of heavy metal T-Shirts are taking a beating.

"Ex-rock journalist & heavy metal Tshirts" to "Air Supply"... thats some transition. Whats next? A Bryan Adams concert??? Just curious... in most cases, I have seen people starting up with mush and boybands and ending up with Rock... and they all say that "once you go rock, there is no going back!!"

No, Bryan Adams is one step above Air Supply. I had a phase where I listened to nothing but "Sandstorm" by Darude and "In Da Club" by 50 Cent.

And I haven't gone back. I still love rock. Other forms of music are brief, tempestuous affairs, soon to be forgotten.
