Cheese and crackers

Subject: Music
Just a quickie about my new baby girl...

One thing about driving a convertible is that all your cheesy-music predilitcions are broadcast to the entire world to hear. Especially when your convertible has a 500 watt MP3-capable stereo replete with subwoofers, etc. *cough*

I don't listen to the radio much anymore, so there are a few tunes that I know have been overplayed over the last, oh, 30 years; but for me, they still have that cheesy-cool patina to them, and in a retro-styled summer cruiser like my Mustang, they come to life in a way that was probably intended back in the day -- the day when even I was just a tot.

Notables on my playlist:

- Heart "Barracuda"
- J. Edgar Winter "Frankenstein"
- ZZ Top "La Grange"
- AC/DC "Back in Black"
- Ozzy Osburne "Crazy Train"
- Def Leppard "Pyromania"
...and, of course, the pentultiamate...
- Van Halen "Panama"

This is entirely uncharacteristic of me, and you really have to get a load of the look on my face when I've got this mix playing. But I swear, it's an awful lot of fun. F* what everyone else thinks! (Heh...)
