It's always the same, it's just a shame, that's all.

All of you know that John has bizarre taste in music, right? For the most part, he's an elitist & refuses to acknowledge anything produced after 1969, with the rare exception of Morrissey, Metallica & now Genesis. That's right, Genesis. For those of you born after 1983 (Muggins Mouse), Genesis was Phil Collins' band before he went solo & started writing songs for Disney movies.

The Genesis song that John is currently batshit over is "That's All". For the past 2-3 weeks, every time I get into John's car his iPod is playing it. I mean, the song's not bad. Whatever. So the other day John called me downstairs. He has taught himself how to play "That's All" on the organ. Clearly, it's not enough that he listens to it on repeat in his car every day, now he feels the need to play it in the house. On an organ, no less.

I'm going to attach the video at the end of this post, but for anyone unfamiliar with the song, pay careful attention to the lyrics & let me know if I should be worried that the man I'm marrying in 36 days is repeatedly listening to a song about a relationship where "I could leave, but I won't go, though my heart might tell me so. I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes"......

I love Genesis, so I understand John's obsession. Jerry Reed and Genesis were the first cassettes I bought as a kid. At the same time. At a flea market. And I think they were bootlegs.

This post makes me really happy, mainly because I really like that song too, but I also like the mental image of John playing it on an organ. Hopefully one day I will witness this in person!

In my house, I'm the one who gets obsessed w/songs. Then, b/c I have no talent, I'll ask MM to learn them for me. Or...I'll whip out the iPodicuss and play it over and over.

Or...sometimes, MM can't get a song out of his head, but doesn't know who it is...I'll have him hum the melody and I'll try to guess what it is.

So far, I have had complete success. I'll listen to him and then...whip out the ole iPodicuss and play it for him.

Dang. I raWk with total hardness.

'scuse me. I just fell off my high horse.

ow.

Worry not. The only dudes who pay attention to lyrics are Communists, censors, and Communist censors.
