#beginquote# Rap, I can't understand a thing, and sometimes you can catch a word or two and I don't want to find out what it is they are rapping about. I think there is some good rap -maybe someone knows more about it and will join in the fun. I can remember the Beatles, Jefferson Airplane and Peter, Paul and Mary and there are others - they each have something going for them and still do (who ever is still actively performing). Dixie Land Jazz, most broadway musicals and some ballads are good to listen to, sing and dance along with. Even some Rock & Roll is fun - the lyrics don't make much sense,but the rhythm is good for the most part and fun to dance to. As for all that stuff we both hear, the 2 or 3 notes and bang, bang, thump, thump and overmiked singers (if these people were not miked, no-one would be able to hear them), are for the birds. Why they are called artists is beyond me. Betty Buckley is an artist there are a few others but their names escape me at the moment. Living in New York, sometines on the subway platform there are some pretty good groups that entertain us - I spoke to one of the groups and asked if they ever got a chance to perform on stage, in some cases yes and sometimes they get "gigs". Guess it's a matter of taste, something for everyone.:) #endquote#
