It may not come as a surprise to you that I think Stevie Nicks sucks.
Point is, Psychy, are you willing to recognise talent even if you hate the music. Personally I hate nothing more than Heavy Metal bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Kiss, you name them (well maybe Country Rock) but you'll never hear me say that there is no talent. But such awfull music.
By the way, I am listening to "Blue" by Joni Mitchell. How appropriate, all she ever bared was her soul.

When I joined this forum some 4 years back I wanted to get to know those freaky persons who liked JA. But soon after I was a bit disappointed, I was baffled by the strict "politically correct" restrictions on this forum. Questioning the opinions of other members seemed to be considered as a negative attitude. As I said in a post this site seemed to turn into the Mutual Admiration Society. It sucked the life out of this forum, in my opinion (too bad, because there were a few interesting contributors to this forum).
Psychy, I really liked our discussion on this topic, though I know we will never, ever agree on Gaga, talent and the importance of big boobies. But you are never afraid to voice your opinions strongly, you stand for what you like. And it gave me the opportunity to sharpen my knives.
You know it is like one of those heated discussions in a bar over a couple of beers, after which you say:
"Do you want another beer, Red?"
"No, get me a glass of red wine this time, Psychy."
Do yo know another topic we can fight about?
And if you don't know her, check out Dutch singer Anouk: Blond , boobies, tattoos, good voice and a couple of good songs.

Today, while painting, I remembered a song that I consider to be a really great pop/rock classic, by two artists you won't find in my record collection: Nick Cave (hmm) and Kylie Minogue (horrible, horrible): "Where The Wild Roses Grow".
A really gripping "murder ballad". How I wish that I could write a song like that.
