Yeah, ever play "Pin the tail on the Donkey"? OK do the same thing in a place that sells CD's except whatever CD your hand lands on after you've been spun around a few times you buy and actually listen to it. Try it. You may even find music YOU actually like as opposed to what one is SUPPOSED to like via the music industry pumping stuff to you via the Top Ten Radio playlists.
I went to grab my ipod and realized I've downloaded some wildly different stuff lately; Joe Walsh, life of illusion; Ivan and Alyosha, Easy to love; Natasha Bedingfield, unwritten; Emmylou harris, wrecking ball; eagles, seven bridges road are my lastest batch of downloads
