I keep getting distracted, of course. I was watching the A&E doc on Elvis the other night and it reminded a question someone asked me after browsing my playlists.
“What’s so great about Elvis?”
YMMV, but I almost treat these questions as rhetorical ones. It’s like asking why MJ is the King of Pop. These titans of pop culture – either you like them or you don’t.* When I listen to or watch these kinds of people, I am overwhelmed not only by their talent, but by their charisma. I fall under a sort of spell that makes me even giddier and more intense (if possible) than I normally am.
* I’m a hypocrite, because for the past year, i have been educating myself on Beatles’ music. And you know what? It’s working.
