Someone left a comment on the "North To Alaska" post to the effect that while my politics were sound, my taste in music was dire.
Let me tell you, Mr Anonymous Commenter, that was nothing compared to what I could post. For example, I've kept quiet till now about a musical fetish I've had ever since a mädchen I met on a Tyrolean holiday taught me how to yodel down the beautiful Liebestal valley.
Cop this. And think yourself lucky I don't post this. Or even this.
UPDATE - a yodel blog ! Mademoiselle Montana's Yodel Heaven. (She like cumbia too ... another thing I've kept quiet about).
I know the Laban readership aren't too big on political correctness. Nonetheless the combination of the music and the lyrics may prove too much for some. Just call this a product of its time.
(A while ago, btw, I posted about the late Hank Thompson, and lamented that his classic "The Wild Side of Life" wasn't on Youtube. It is now.
Neither was the original version of Merle Haggard's "I'm A Lonesome Fugitive". It is now.)
