etc, etc, eclectic

an eclectic mix of party music wide-ranging, broad-based, extensive, comprehensive, encyclopedic; varied, diverse, all-embracing, multifaceted, multifarious, heterogeneous, miscellaneous, assorted.

It's been brought to my attention that in my Blogger profile I omitted Van Morrison from my list of favorite music. Shiiiit! (as they say in Texas), I've got two iPods!

Joe, is there any musician you don't like out there? That's the more important question.

I usually change the station when Dr Hook & The Medicine Show comes on. Ditto for Hootie & The Blowfish.

Still like Wazmo Nariz though.
