Good point. I don’t know Christina Aguilera’s work. Either because I may have heard her and jumped to turn the station or they just don’t play her on the stuff I listen to. What you said makes me think of Alicia Keys. I really didn’t know anything about her until I heard Empire State of Mind with Jay-Z (which I learned about from Glee). Then I discovered she put out her version of Empire State Of Mind, PT II, which today I find in my top 5 songs evah. Then diving into her catalog of work… not so much. Too much wailing and hip-hop. But, she did continue, presented us with something different. I love her for that. I think P!nk is masterful in covering a variety of styles and very excited on what she has yet to bring us.

Speaking of in-house mentality, I have long thought about that of radio stations. At one point, local radio was cool with it’s freedom to play things. Today… unthinkable. Little boxes and play within this boundary. I find rock radio extremely limiting, boring and the lowest common denominator.

Sorry... jumped the track there.
