Pretty? Did Charles listen to the whole thing?

I have no appreciation for this kind of improvisational jazz and "reconstruction" of pop music. It's barely recognizable as Abba's tune. I guess that's the point, but why bother? All that banging and clanging and thumping. It's like a kid having a tantrum in a music store. Way too cerebral. To me music should be more visceral. I want to tap my foot and hum along and shake my body. Listening to this makes me want to run from the room.

I love fishing the original song from what they've done with it. It will be BAD PLUS all week, John. Sorry they are not to your taste.

Yeah, I was cranky this afternoon. I ought not to have left a comment at all. Reading it now I'm embarrassed. Sound like a crotchety old... fill in the blank. ;^)

You never have to apologize for being cranky here. I like controversy over things like music.

You've got to listen to Snarky Puppy.
