OK the title gives it away, I thought I’d let you off the hook this entry, you’ve been very good and read a lot of high-brow serious political stuff not to mention some pretty hefty comments so it’s only fair you get a break. Hence here is Pulpblog! I decided to write having heard Kylie’s latest single ‘Chocolate’ and finding I actually quite liked it. Now Kylie and I go way back. I had pictures of Kylie on my bedroom wall when I was a teenager all the way back in 87-88 -most of you lot were probably about 4! Anyway it wasn’t cool to like Kylie then, people were not talking about her arse and even I had to hide in shame with regard to ‘I should be so lucky’! In her music career I found I like 3 songs in total but I always rather liked the ‘diminutive antipodean’ as my Dad used to call her. then it became cool to like Kylie and you know me well enough by now to know that conformity isn’t really my bag so I had to go underground! It feels strange that Kylie has been my kind of pin-up choice for over 15 years, normally the people you fancied when you were young are significantly older so as to make it far less likely that you would grow up still looking at them the same way.
So, I’ve confessed it, I feel better now. For a rocker there are certain songs that I don’t know entirely why I like them and they’re totally out of the genre I normally listen to. Sugababes – Hole in the Head for some reason that makes me quite hot! I’ve been a Kraftwerk fan for many years since hearing Trans Europe Express in the late 70s. I even like a bit of Handel or Dvorak on occasions! Yes, can’t you just see the Baron as a powdered poppinjay prancing around the 18th century. Ho ho, well I have the hair for it without needing a wig! No it would need colouring it’s not that grey! I don’t think the trousers would do me any favours either physically or aesthetically!

Nice light sweet nostalgia post– just my speed. But uh, don’t know Kylie or sugababes, or Hole in the Head or Kraftwerk . . . hmm, musically I am SO not in tune. Have you checked out http://www.3hive.com?

[Redbaron responds- What do you mean you don’t know Kylie -everyone across the globe knows Kylie! Ok Sugababes, no problem there, Kraftwerk -well dig out all the Depeche Mode and 80s electronic music as well as The Orb and 90s Techno and Ambient -and you’ll find Kraftwerk at the root of all of them]

[Redbaron responds -It wasn’t so much the singing but the actions in the dance sequence – hoo-aah, that rang my bell!]

[Redbaron responds -I usedn’t to be averse to a bit of Metallica but then I found out they were at the forefront of personal litigation against US teenagers who were downloading music and that switched me off them a bit. I don’t know many NZ bands tho’ I think The Exponents were from your part of the world.]

Sorry for keeping you up half the night, hope you’re not too tired this morning… Me thinks however that someone needs a musical education, kraftwerk honestly you need to ‘get down with the kids’ a bit more don’t you. Glad you took the stance against Metallica though, good man.

Surely it would be more fitting for The Red Baron to fancy that other Australian chanteuse…Dame Nellie Melba.

3)I don’t like dance music so don’t much care about what influenced it.
