Had a moment like this? You're either listening to a song for the first time, or worse, you've been listening to it for a while; you're grooving to the song, you like the music and you're either:
Under the impression it's a particular band / artist that you know because the music / vocals are as familiar as that band / artist, or;
You don't think it's a band that you necessarily know, you cannot ID the band, but at the same time, you have no idea that it's (GULP) a band that you don't respect / don't like / or think is very lame.
When you discover, at long last, who is responsible for the song, you're (hopefully) amused, but you're also mortified. You know, just a little. :0
My example is the song "Home", sung by Philip Phillips. Love the song and while not a huge fan of Mumford and Sons, I thought this song was a breakthrough for *me* because it caught my attention, I loved it, despite the fact it was (and continues to be) overplayed.
Then one day, I discovered the song is credited to Philip Phillips -- who was the winner of the last American Idol crown. Never watched AI, and had no knowledge of Phillips' voice. Now was that any reason to stop liking the song? Not at all; for all I know, Philip Phillips is deserving of a record contract and has a bright career ahead of him. But just knowing he was the winner of American Idol made me question myself. :)
Stand up and admit you've had such a moment. It's not so bad.
NOTE: Feel free to give examples of songs that you thought were by a band you liked, that turned out to be by a different band, thereby developing into a musical intro and favorable discovery for you.
