The Moody Blues

I just found out that the Moody Blues are playing at, of all places, the Orange County fair this summer! Anyone interested? Brad and Kat? The Moody Blues released their first album sometime in the late 60s and continued to record until I think the early 90s. I liked their 80s stuff ("In Your Wildest Dreams," "I Know You're Out There Somewhere") while Brad introduced me to the classics ("Nights in White Satin" and so forth). Now I'm playing them on iTunes and contemplating buying some with my new iTunes gift card.

And on a tangential but slightly related note, Mary--I listened to a bunch of Chris DeBurgh songs and you know, they just aren't as brilliant or moving as they were 12 years ago. In fact, they were pretty cheesy. I sincerely dread putting on my deeply beloved Kenny Loggins in fear that it's going to have the same problem.

Isn't it amazing how that changes over time? I feel the same way about most of my/our college music. The only reason that I ever listen to some of it now is the associations that it has (such as waking up to The Lion King soundtrack!!)
