I love me some Morrissey, but despite the best efforts of many, I refuse to feel guilty abou it.

Liking No Doubt's Singles album, though? Mea culpa! Mea maxima culpa!

J-Pop, in my limited encounters with it, is a lot of fun. Of course, I'm told that a lot of J-pop fans don't particularly like Pizzicato 5, but there ya go.

There is no shame in The Smiths, but I think I would feel guilty about Morrissey.

For true shame, I must admit I love the song "All 4 Love" by Color Me Badd.

Well, last week I wound up buying Natalie Imbruglia's one-time hit album. I did what I usually do when bidding on a CD on eBay, I dug through the seller's other auctions and bid a buck or two on anything else that remotely interested me. I lost all the other auctions though, so now I'm the uncomfortable owner of a $1.00 Natalie Imbruglia CD. It's really terrible, too; every other line is a non-sequitur written for the sole purpose of rhyming with the previous line, as though it was written with a third-grader's (or Poetic Fiend's) adherence to form over aesthetics. I used to think that the abrupt line "lying naked on the floor" was an attempt to convey a mental state with a concrete image, but it makes no sense in the framework of the song, and neither do the three dozen other such lines on that piece of crap album. These lyrics were quite possibly written by committee.

I do sometimes enjoy indulging my effeminate cravings for manufactured pop music, though; Deee-Lite and Kylie Minogue put out solid albums that have treasured slots in my CD changer, and I love Betty Boo despite her awfulness. I might even pick up a Madonna CD someday, if I can win it for a buck with another purchase.

I actually really liked Madonna's Ray of Light album. The one with the cowboy things, am I getting it right? It's pretty good. One has to admit that Madonna has done really well for herself considering she can't sing really well.

See, I think the opposite - she could get away with the poppy high-pitched stuff, but not when her voice deepened when she tries to get throaty. She really cannot sing compared to the other popular artists.

Scott Horowitz | September 22, 2004
I still wanna know why she talks with a faux British accent when she is from Michigan.

So does Madonna - but I don't think it works as well for her.

Don't get me wrong, I like a lot of her stuff - but I don't think she's a great singer.
