Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Writer's Block: Over the top

Who would you consider the most overrated musician, and why?

We-e-e-e-ll - and this may (or may not?) alienate some folks on my Flist, but I'll say it anyway - the people who I think are really overrated are the ones who sing and dance to songs that other people have written and played and produced. That's not real music, it's karaoke.

But then, effectively, they're not musicians.

So, looking up the first person that springs to mind, and checking whether he actually counts as a musician by that critera - and he does - Michael Jackson. He was okay, I suppose, a good entertainer, but none of his songs really grabbed me at an emotional level, and I could never really understand the level of his success.

Still, to each their own.
Rover demands an explanation


You ever have one of those situations where you're absolutely convinced as convinced can be that you did something, but when it comes to it, you can't find any trace of you ever actually having done it?

My brain's slightly weirded out by this one.

OTOH, if I hadn't done what I thought I'd done, there'd normally be a brouhaha, and there hasn't been, so...least said, soonest mended, and all of that.

I think.
