More musical musings: Yep, that’s exactly the problem….

…or, Sometimes I think I get off on the pain…

I made the lunch run just now, to this little barbecue joint on New Braunfels Avenue just north of IH-10. And once again, I left the Sirius receiver at home and surfed. I need to get out of that habit. I heard a Y100 promo that went, “We play the best country,” followed by a snippet of Kid Rock’s “All Summer Long.” I thought to myself, all righty then, as I went on to KZEP and Bad Company

And backing out of the place to bring home lunch, once again on Y100, I heard Jason Aldean’s “Crazy Town” (thought the melody sounded like “She’s Country,” and that’s a commentary all its own — people think GEORGE STRAIT records the same song over and over? What the hell ever, y’all.) in which he describes Nashville as “Hollywood with a touch of twang.” And I thought that summed up the problem with modern country in a nutshell, though I’m sure the songwriters probably meant it as a compliment. So back to KISS 99.5 it went. Lord knows Sirius isn’t perfect, but it’s still a fat lot better than terrestrial. I’d have to agree with TFG’s comment here, though I do love the headbangers:

“This town don’t know from country music — it’s headbangers and Nashville.  Kind of like hell would be.”

    Next time try to tune in 92.1, KNBT from New Braunfels. You might be able to pick it up in that part of town.

    I dunno, we couldn’t really get it in when we lived on the NE side o’ town (technically just north of SA). Worth a shot, though…I dunno why he didn’t just put it on KKYX & let it sit…

    KISS and Joe Anthony were who “broke” Metallica in the US market. They aren’t the same as they were when I was a wee lad, though.
