In the last few years--OK, more like the last 15 years--I've completely lost track of the music scene. Beck, Moby, Coldplay, Eminem, I don't know, they're all the same to me. But I don't want to be caught in a time warp listening only to music from the eighties, so in an effort to branch out I've started asking friends what they're listening to. A young associate in our office gave me his iPod to scroll through, and although I initially didn't know how to turn it on (yes, it's really true), once I got the hang of it I was amazed at how much could be included on a single device. And how many names I didn't recognize.
I don't have much time for walking around with ear buds, but I need to get some music I love. Preferably with a melody. Without references to hos and bitches.
Any suggestions are welcome.
