WTF is Concrete Blonde?

Now I know why you don't understand the need to have it all with you all the time. Your listening moods aren't eclectic enough. You can be satisfied with a few hundred songs by your "favorite artists".

There are those of us who have no "favorite artist". Before portable hard drives I would burn CD's to listen to at work. 10 hours of MP3 music per CD and I'd carry several. A single CD might contain Rachmaninoff, AC/DC, Norah Jones, The Cramps, Mendelssohn, George Jones, Concrete Blonde, Elton John, Donna Summer, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears .....

You get the idea. I don't listen to a specific genre or set of artists. And what I want to listen to at any given moment in the day may change dramatically.

I actually do have eclectic tastes. For R&R, though, it ends around 1984 and for C&W in ~1993, and never got into rap or whiny 90s stuff.

Obsession with "preserving cultural heritage" is a racist impediment
to moral, physical and intellectual progress.
