A Quick Note on Perspective

I listen to a LOT of audio books while I’m driving. And when I’m not listening to audio books, my car radio is tuned to SiriusXm 70’s, 80’s, First Wave, or Classic Vinyl.

So when I watch American Idol and the contestants do contemporary songs, I rarely know them. Of the eight or so (!) singers featured in the two hour (!) premiere episode, one did two songs I knew, one blew a song I knew, a couple did originals, and the others, well, they might as well have been originals!

Although a bit embarrassed to be so far removed from the hip and cool music scene, and also for using words like hip and cool, I kind of like not having a comparison. I don’t know who the artist is or how the song is supposed to sound. I can judge the contestant on their performance without those biases.

It’s a helpful perspective when it comes to considering the talent.

See? Quick!

 

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
