Cheesy Music

Cheese in music, like cheese on a chessboard, is a matter of personal taste. My cheese might be your genius and vice versa. But since you asked, and taking bands exclusively from the broad genre usually discussed here ....

Any of those anthemic Bon Jovi "woaah woaahhh" songs. I'll take Bad Medicine. Trite and repetitive.

Almost anything by men of the late 80s who looked like women. Why don't we say Poison's "Talk Dirty to Me". Vacuous and uninspired.

British bands desperately trying to earn a dollar by making AOR their heart wasn't in. The entire first two albums of FM qualify in my definition. Skin crawlingly embarrassing.

Once masterful guitarist on the slide with ridiculously be-permed new Irish singer in tow. Anything from the McCauley Schenker Group (sorry Don!). The unenjoyable sight of a major talent going into freefall without even asking where the parachutes were.

Awful attempts by good bands to rekindle their flame. Angel's CD (can't even remember the name...) just loses out to Legs Diamond's "Bad Town Girl" because the cover gives it extra cheese...

Not all musical cheese, I must add, is never enjoyable. In the same way that that 3 month old piece of "Bulgarian Cheddar-ette" might just taste OK on a piece of toast ... sometimes a bit of this cheese might get my musical taste buds going, but don't tell anybody.

As for what is good to listen to .. well obviously lots but the last 5 things on my deck were .... Pavlov's Dog - 2nd LP, Reggie Knighton - debut , Daft Punk, Nelson - Because they Can, Muse - Origin of Symmetry. What that means I neither know nor care.

PS : The assertion that in anybody's eyes, particularly my own, I might look "cool" is so far wide of the mark I feel I ought to put you right!
