Well, besides the thousants of hours of Musical Theatre on my
ipod... Classic Rock is probably the best moniker, but that doesn't
really describe it either. Let's say Paul Simon (with or without
Garfunkel... and this is where I wish there was the plus-or-minus
sign on the keyboard), Phil Collins, James Taylor, Carole King,
Beatles (like everyone), Queen, The Who, Aerosmith, Barenaked
Ladies, and of course gotta have some Copland and Mozart and Sousa
and Verdi to feel all intellectual. And *NSYNC for those days I
just really miss the late '90s.
