The other night, Greg and I were driving home and I made a comment about how few titles and artists I can put together. I may know the lyrics to a song, but that doesn't mean that I could tell you who sings it. In short, I am "Band Ignorant." Well, Greg asked me if I could identify the song that was playing (I still can't remember what/who it was), and I told him, "No." Then the song "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" (I had to look up the title for that one, too I would have guessed "Life goes On") and Greg asked me if I could identify the band. I said I had no idea, so he gave me the hint "It's the most popular band ever. I was able to guess the Beatles, but it was truly a guess.
Because of that, I wondered how my siblings were at putting titles and artists together. I knew Haylee would be the best, but I was most interested in Rick and Ben. I asked them each how many bands they could identify with their songs, and they each said, "About 5."
I asked them to identify the artist of "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," and even with my sister-in-law, Heather saying "It's the Beatles," Both Rick and Ben said, "No, it isn't, but I don't know who it is."
Well, in my life I have been to one concert. It was a freebie put on by NuSkin for Kenny Loggins, so I told my brothers that was one singer I could probably identify. Rick's response was, "He sings? I thought he only played the saxophone!"
Yep, we're all hopeless!
