Out of the Loop

9 February 2006

What does it mean when I know and love the punk record of the year (Green Day’s “Boulevard of Broken Dream”), own and like the country album of the year (Alison Krauss and Union Station’s “Lonely Runs Both Ways”), yet have NEVER heard of the U2 stuff that won awards?

I’ll tell you what it means: I have been taken over by aliens. The Green Day is understandable (I am the one in our house that owns Korn, Kid Rock, and Soundgarden, after all). But the *country*? I hate country! What am I doing with country music? And why haven’t I heard of the U2?

Damn that NPR and its eclectic mix of music.
