First off, I wanted to apologize for being inattentive to all my readers here at The Song In My Head. I have been away since New Years and I have had technical difficulties with the site and the music not playing. This has all been fixed. I will have all the old songs working soon and I will have all new posts as well! YAY!
In the fall of 1998 the greatest horror ever known to man fell to earth in the form of a TV show called “total request live”. Eventually this mindless pop fest for 12 year olds became the king of the castle over at MTV. I understood the shows appeal but I was completely thrown off guard when a young, fresh, piano master named Rufus Wainwright somehow sneaked his way onto TRL’s poop plate list of artists. I really wasn’t sad at all when he ended up losing to Britney or Christina or whoever it was, because I knew that he was amazing and that “April Fools” was one of the best pop singles of the year. “Oh well” I cried, “at least I know better than 12 year olds”. My musical love affair with Rufus has only grown over the years although I tend to always fall back on his singles and more straightforward “pop” tunes.
Here are some of my personal favorites of Wainwright’s collection:
