<flummoxed look> I haven't even heard of most of these. I was raised on
classical music (especially Tchaikovsky, whom my dad loves) and, er, Anne
Murray (whom my dad also loves, and I rather like her music, too). I
can't think of any bands that I know of and like. I do listen to a lot
of anime music and I hear various pop and rock and techno things due to
friends, dining hall music selections, etc. though darned if I can
identify them. I compose, though not nearly as well as the other musical
p0eople on this list. =^) And I do something that might generously be
termed art, though I have a lot to learn.
My pop culture IQ is about -20, too. Ah well.
