I’m open-minded enough to give just about anything two spins (there are exceptions—we all have our limits). I grew up in a musically schizophrenic household (my parents’ record collection ranges from Hank Williams to Stax/Volt to Chuck Berry to Nat King Cole to Waylon Jennings to Fats Domino—and that’s just the mainstream stuff!), so I’m pretty well-rounded in history. As I have noted dozens of times on these forums, I mostly play Texas Roadhouse Music—an uneven blend of Blues, Classic Rock and Outlaw Country. Subsequently, that’s also what I listen to most frequently... However, due to having a wife with a different ethnic/cultural background and a teen daughter, I’m not completely in control of the dial of the radio/switch on the CD player/button on the MP3 player at all times...and that’s good. Consequently, there’s music and artists that hits my ears that I would never have listened to on my own. Here’s a few that surprised me: So what unexpected songs surprised you?
