I am addicted to music as well. I have no formal education in it, but I like so much of it, and a wide variety too. Everything has its place and value, and just because two things are very different, doesn't mean they cancel one another out. I like Yma Sumac, Julie London, Electric Hellfire Club, The Doors, The Smiths, Dolly Parton, The Carpenters, Diamanda Galas, Psychic TV, Ruth Etting, Culture Club, The Cure, Blossom Dearie, The Rolling Stones, Nick Drake, The Cowboy Junkies, and so much more. I never grow tired of listening to music, and finding new music to explore. If ever I go deaf, it will be a sad day indeed.
