Happy Fathers Day.
As I recall it, there’s a scene in one episode of Frontline where Mike Moore is driving along listening happily to the radio, singing along to “We Built This City”. When the DJ comes on he derides it as “one for the oldies” and then throws to something newer, a heavy rock number which Mike thoroughly dislikes, leaving him shouting at the radio, demanding to know “Where’s the music??”
To be honest I don’t know how much I like 1927’s other songs, but I really like this one — always have.
Mix FM went back to their usual fare, which made it pretty obvious that I am not the demographic that they are looking for.
There’s something I find very unappealing about the vocals in most of the songs — they seem to be produced to be deliberately distorted, and/or sounding like wailing, warbling, or seemingly out-of-tune (such as a cover-version of The Police’s “Every Breath You Take” where all the vocal bits from the original sounded off-key).
It’s just my opinion of course. Someone must like it I suppose.
