Not guilty.

No. Don't even!

If it's a guy and he's (someone's idea of) "cute," I KNOW that what's on inside will be complete crap.

I have been sucked in by cover art, though. It's why I bought Disraeli Gears (and got way lucky).

Let's see. Who have I bought since Janis, Grace, Linda and Joni? Cindy, Pat and Debbie? Leanne Rhimes? I really like Imelda May and Shirley Manson, but I wouldn't walk across the street to see either as a solo. "Their" bands are more important to me. Gaga and Katie. Dance music definitely isn't my thing, but I really like some of the their ballads, especially Gaga.

And it really is sick, but I could listen to Whitney Houston sing the line: "and I-----------ee-I---will al---wa-ays love you" a couple dozen times in a row, and maybe three consecutive Star Spangled Banners. There are a lot of amazing female voices out there. I just don't care for their music/styles.

Plus, listening to that stuff makes me feel too gay.

Loved her on Pink Floyd's The Wall.

I think I mixed up Sheryl Crowe with Sarah McLaughlin. Still don't have them straight. Either way, I like both of them.

Who's that singer from Eurythmics? She's got a VOICE.

I'm not sure Alan, but, according to Terry, I think that list pretty much qualifies you for mudshark membership.

How could I, too, forget Annie L.!

Oh, that woman who sang lead in YES for 30 years.
She was great.

And Sweet! They sang in registers no Celtic Woman could even see.

A Money Making Circus. I'd wear those "get ups" for a 10th of what she is taking in.
