Flamboyant boys and unbalanced girls

I have been spending lately a lot of time with people who are totally obsessed with music. I mean those who go from blog to blog and speak of bands that never enter Top 100 charts. The role I have taken often is to just write down names of bands they mention and then turn to my friends Google, MySpace and YouTube.

In one of those discussions someone turned to me a while ago and asked what kind of music I like. I was a bit puzzled in that situations but now I have a better answer. I have two categories:
- unbalanced women: Sort of women on the verge of a nervous breakdown like Martha Wainwright, Marit Bergman, Joni Mitchell, Carole King or even some stuff from Macy Gray.
- flamboyant and funny men: the people who do not take themselves to seriously but make witty and over-the-top music. I mean such as Patrick Wolf (see video), Rufus Wainwright, Mika, Antony and the Johnsons, Jonathan Richman and Sufjan Stevens.

More posts on music are going to follow as I make my way through my new albums and the CD of 127 songs that my pop wizard friend made me.
