Music and musicians  

I just signed up over on Facebook (I have a new acquaintance who has some photos there I wanted to see) and one of the “interest” boxes, of course, was for favorite music. So I took a look through the directory where my iTunes files live and started making a list. But it got rather long and ridiculous, and didn’t really express my tastes anyway. So I didn’t post it. But having written it up I didn’t want to waste it, so I’m posting it here.

I just went over to look you up on Facebook. It said, "Fred has no friends." That's ridiculous. Shall we do something about it?

I note that your list has all other genres indicated pretty much by performers, but classical music by composers. I guess I'm just going to have to get used to people doing that. (I've been trying for >30 years, though.)
