Connections make me smile, especially when they've been months or years in the making.
However, on a drive today, I made a connection that made me want to lash out. Okay, let's backtrack a bit... I'm not a big Madonna fan. I'm not saying she's bad, untalented or uncompelling, she's just not generally my cup of tea. However, when I heard "Hung Up" a few years ago, I dug the song only because of the synth part (also the bass drum had a nice, deep kick quality about it), and Madonna went up a notch and a half.
But again... today was a faithshaker. I flipped on 88.3 and what did I hear? It wasn't Madonna, it was ABBA. ABBA!
I'm sure this is no news to older people or your everyday ABBA fan, but damnit. Just damnit. I feel so duped.
Oh, well... it's still a really good synth part. So thanks for the exposure, Madge.
