    10-APRIL-2012 -- (I just don't get it) SoTD

    Never understood (just don't get it) the popularity of this band and their music.

    Yoga, I'm not a huge fan, but they had a run in which they did some neat pop tunes. Nothing more, nothing less. I equate them a little with Barenaked Ladies ... nothing extraordinary, just fun songs. Good live acts.

    As for Hootie, here's my favorite of theirs:

    Ugh.

    Owl City - whatever...


    What is the deal with them...?  Are they real, or did Disney Co. invent them from old boy band parts...?

    Lloyd, 
    I sort of attribute their success to timing  -- backlash to grunge, maybe?  Your "nothing more, nothing less" assessment is a good one, in any event.  :P

    Never liked this band but that album hit at the right time with enough crossover appeal that brought them success. As we all remember, it didn't last too long.

    It's unfortunate that you even know who they are, isn't it?  
    Then again, I have to ask myself why I know about the band, One Direction.  There's no excuse for that either.  :P

    I just don't get ... John Cougar Mellencamp. I'd take waterboarding over being forced to listen to "Jack and Diane."

    [QUOTE]Why 'Hungry Like THE Wolf'?  Was Duran Duran talking about a particular wolf...or wolves as a whole?  Why not just 'Hungry Like A Wolf'?  This way it could be any wolf, and it's not confusing.

    This is scary, but I think I actually know the reason for this. When saying "the", they seem to be speaking of a specific type of wolf - men. "A" wolf could just be about the animal itself. However, I think the video confuses the lyrics in the way they are interpreted. In the early days of DD it was much better for the wild beast to be a beauty in a bikini.
