How To Tell For Sure That My Music Tastes Are Eclectic

My most recent downloads into iTunes were Henry Mancini and One Direction.
When was the last time you referred to those performers in the same sentence?


  1. When was the last time you referred to those performers in the same century?

  2. I know who Henry Mancini is, but I had no idea who, or what, One Direction was. Had to follow your link, and I have to agree. They are quite different. Good job keeping those horizons broad.

  3. I don't care for One Direction. I think I'm just too old to appreciate their music.

  4. Last Semester I Took a Digital Audio Essentials Class. The First day of Class we were given an Assignment to Put together a CD of our favorite Music. (It was the Last Assignment Collected) I went a little overboard and Created a Double CD set (I honestly Couldn't narrow it down to one CD, and getting it down to two was tricky, there are definitely some things that are missing).

    Now I feel as though I've said too much.

    1. A man after my own heart. :)
      I'm not surprised at all that your tastes are this eclectic. A couple of those you named are among my favorites as well. But there are a couple I'm going to have to look up, as I've never heard of them before.
