Notes from a Walkman Junkie: Death By Music

August 5, 2010

“This music makes me want to kill myself”….A woman uttered this phrase to me as she was leaving the gallery where I work yesterday…. and yes, I choose the music there.

This did not bother me nor shake my confidence in regards to my musical selection ( I was playing Electrelane;  see: awesome.)

I say this not only because the woman who said it seemed to be a real ‘ass-hat’, but because music has always been a very important part of my life…not only in the pure enjoyment of it, but in an almost autobiographical sense as well.

I can recall at the tender age of six being completely smitten with the song, ‘All out of Love’ by Air Supply….(Don’t judge me, I was six and it really spoke to me)  I was completely in love with Bo from Dukes of Hazards at the time and due to the inevitable fate of this doomed…..and nonexistent relationship, I was in fact ‘All out of love….and so lost without you….’ (Bo).

Please do not let my fondness for Air supply…and hunky Bo years ago dissuade you from giving Electrelane a listen. You may really enjoy them…or apparently, you may want to kill yourself….hopefully it is not the latter. I know that past music recommendations given to me have served me well (some more than others) but, the true musical gems make it all worthwhile. While my music tastes have drastically changed and I dare say…. improved, my visceral reaction to music and how it serves as a documentation of sorts of my life has not.

    Please tell the Ass Hat I jog to Electrelane and please thank yourself for turning me onto them.

    Dee, that is pretty awesome…surely “Cooter” is a nickname? Either way, pure gold.

    Sara, I shall pass along this message to the Ass Hat, but I truly hope she never comes back.

    Yes, a nickname, but so much a name that I’m not sure what his real name is. We are going to do a race together as a team, showing up in my (Deezy) jeep wearing cut-off jean shorts and torn-sleeve flannels.

    Let the woman that wanted to kill herself have her wish! I’m probably much older than you, (67) but I still get a message from this music! I love most music and this sure has a good rhythm and beat to it. Do NOT apologize to anyone for your seletions! P.S. I LOVED those cut off jeans!
