    okay----that guy--Barry Manilow, maker of tv ad jingles & pop songs---will bee appearing here, this year at one a the biggest venues in town. but no----not gonna go. are you kidding? so anyway----i just know you kids are thinking---lbb doesn't like anything, does he? yup. but yeah---steve vai & some other guy willbe appearing at the old, restored theater, downtown. a nice-sized venue, but guess what? tickicks are too high! tell ya something else, tho---sometime later this year----Robin Trower will be appearing at that same old theater, and though tickickicks have not gone on sale, balcony seats(where you want to be for loud rock shows) are well under $100 at other venues he is appearing at. so yeah---it may be worth it. i'll think about it. Trower usually has a drummer and one or two or three other players with him. very listenable, tho. hope that helps you some. thankk mee.

    okay----too Much--knowing the perfectionist you are, i;m shocked-n-supprised that you left the comma out of "you're". ha. but no---no way can i afford ta see 80-year old barry rehash all those songs he's prolly VERY tired of, by now. i know i am. ha. but, there are zealot consummers who hafta waste time n money on concert tickicks for something to "do". maybe drive-n-eat, in the process. yup. thankk mee.

    okay----old songs--relatively speaking. disclaimer---i dont listen to music to hear lyircs; if it's words i want, i'll read a book. see? so anyway, two pieces in particular that i like are in my so-called hispano-pop genre, from prolly 20+ years ago. one, is Genie in a bottle, credited to christina aguilera, and another is Fergie, credited with "big girls don't cry". they both are the lead vocalists and do a remarkable job. very catchy tunes. BUT, there is much instrumental accompaniment that make the pieces very listenable. plus, you've got to give the record producer credit, as well. yup. hope that helps you some. now, go listen on youtube. thankk mee.

    My husband has always been a big ELO fan and I like quite a bit of their stuff, but I'm not too crazy about that one, sorry.

    okay-----you kids might not be anywhere nearly old enough to recall these two instrumentals that got a lot of play on the radio way-back-when. so anyway: the titles are: Theme from a summer place, by the Percy Faith orchestra and then: our winter love by Bill Purcell (& the orchestra accompanying him.. but yeah----i do like those two recordings & listen to 'em, every now & then. yup. thankk mee.

    okay---here's one that's only about 30 years old, tho summa you kids were just toddlers then. so anyway---it's "Avalon", by Roxy Music, which is really a guy named Brian Ferry & his various cohorts & session players. It's a studio act, though I'm told he did tour. Anyway, they produced a video which is very entertaining and view now and then. But, I was unhappy to learn that the hot chick in the video is a les & not as hot anymore, and that the female soloist at the end of the recording has passed of cancer. I listen to it, now and then. But the other day, I was in wallymart, and heard "Avalon" on the PA. Yup. Edit to add: I like a fair amount of dreamy pop music.

    okay---another one by Bryan Ferry/Roxy Music from waaay back before you kids were born is called "More Than This;' yeah---Bryan wrote & recorded it, with his usual "high production values" which SOME people dislike, but anyway---i'm not partial to the Bryan rendition, because his voice isn't a good fit, and i believe other people realized it. but guess what? all is not lost, because it has been covered by others--the best-known is by(i believe) 10,000 Maniacs. that being said, my very favorite cover of "More Than This" is by Nora Jones; her voice and style nails it. Yup. But, don't worry; i'm just sure Bryan derives income when Nora performs it. no great loss, there. but yeah---hope that helps you some. thankk mee.

    I just heard "More than This" by Brian Ferry on the radio the other day and thought it was pretty good. "Love is the Drug" is my favorite by him though.
