Most bloggers, I have noticed, have a section dedicated to what music they're interested in or which bands they enjoy - alternatively, they have something like SwissToni's "Earworms of the Week".
Me? I barely know the names of the tracks being played let alone have enough for an "Earworms of the Month".
Only two bands particularly shine out for me:
1) Gwen Stefani.
Pretty much whatever she does, I like. I stuck her original album onto an mp3 player and listened to it when going to work and I liked what I heard. Occasionally, she does an annoying track with grating girl-like screeches but that's easily forgiven.
2) Sol Invictus.
A Neofolk/Folk Noir "band", I've had a hankering for them ever since my elder brother introduced me to them back in 1991 - indeed, my avatar piccie is taken from them.
They're not really a band in the main sense; the lead singer, Tony Wakeford, sings and does some percussion work, and there are numerous guest musicians who are invited to join in on the work.
I did once play the music to some Old Ealonians, which was a pretty bad mistake. These two Old Ealonians did not easily understand that Sol Invictus was not about making money but about making music.
"They should get a professional Singer to do the lyrics"
Yes and quite possibly get a professional band to play the music as well, yes?
Anyway, I like them but it's not the sort of thing you can normally bring up in a music conversation/discussion:
"So, what bands do you like?"
"Oh, I like [insert name of band]
"Hmm, I like [different name of band]
"Nice one. What about you Crucifer?"
Oh, I like Sol Invictus.
"Mm? Who? Anyway..."
So, back to my original question. Is it freaky or weird not to have much interest in music?
