  5. This good tune is from a good album, too. It was the first of its kind I heard. Then it became oh-so trendy. Sadly, because I still like it, I will always associate it with Yuppie parties–pretentious wine and cheese events—that, in a far away time and place, I was required to attend.

    • I quite like George Winston – I don’t listen to him all that often but when I do it’s always a pleasurable experience.

      Pretentious events of any kind are to be avoided – if possible. I’m glad to hear it was a far away time and place. I’d love to see a drawing (and, of course, text) on it.

      • My post from 09/19/09 is a less pretentious party scene from an earlier time and place. But the song mentioned there “Mad World” (Orzobal, 1983) as an anachronistic anthem is actually from the pretentious period, even though an east coast chill remix of “Hotel California” would catch the time’s tone better. A similar look back in image and words of that time would be interesting, thanks for the suggestion.
