Oh, and I actually do have something to talk about! You know music? I've been noticing more and more that my opinions of songs tend to change when I listen to them a lot.
What do I mean? Well, let's take a few examples: Smash Mouth's "All Star", Donovan's "Mellow Yellow", Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock", Suzanne Vega's "Fat Man & Dancing Girl".
I love the movie "Mystery Men". When "All Star" played in the ending credits, I thought it rocked - clever lyrics, a distinctive style, a good beat ... a real five-star song in my own personal rating system. And when I saw my brother had a tape with the song on it, I was so enthusiastic about it that he gave me a copy of the CD (bought on the cheap, but hey, it's good!).
And the whole CD sounds like "All Star", with that 'distincive style'. And the whole CD is mediocre
. And listening to "All Star" now, it seems kinda cheesy. I've gone from being excited by it to, well, liking it in small doses, sometimes, if it's played by itself.
Now that I think of it, "Mellow Yellow" is the same but more so. I've gone from loving to hating that song, simple as that.
Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock", on the other hand, I started to like. And "Fat Man & Dancing Girl". Both of them sounded flat-out weird
when I first heard them, like "two-star skip-it-if-you-feel-like-it" lame, but they're interesting
to me now. Songs I might choose out to listen to.
I don't know if there's a pattern to it. But it's worth noting that "Fat Man & Dancing Girl" is one of the two tracks which reviewers rave about on "99.9 F°". So maybe that means something.
