Bob Seger. Also at one time I would not admit to liking Jethro Tull either. But I have rationalized that by realising they were actually quite
subversive, and were actually taking the piss out of the prop-rock genre, that I generally detest lol.
I grew up in the era of punk rock, and the Mod revival. 1977 was year zero. Prog-rock and country-rock was passé, and should have died like the
dinosaurs. Music was supposed to have a message, and not just be a nice tune you can whistle to. Anything that didn't have the right message was
dismissed as irrelevant, and passé.
To be honest I'm a sucker for a good melody. Lucky for me in those days it was cool to be into sixties soul, Northern Soul, as we called it. Because
it wasn't mainstream, what we listened to were not even hits during their time, due to the segregation and general attitude towards "race music", as
it was called. Those singers, even though singing about the usual relationship clichés, were accepted because of their struggle.
We took it all waaay to seriously lol.
I forgot one, Boy George and Culture Club, there I said it, I feel better with that off my chest.
♫"Karma karma karma karma chameleon"♫ George is soulful to the bone.
