While I'm not exactly a huge fan of Ingrid Michaelson or Regina Spektor, I must say that my musical tastes deviate greatly from the norm established by my peers, African-American or not. I love classical music (and I use this in the generalized sense that includes baroque, romantic, etc.), foreign rap (French, Japanese, Korean, South African, etc.), and experimental music (think Le Bal
by Hans Reichel), things that have earned me a fair share of ridicule.
Though I must say I can't blame anyone for not really liking the last song I posted. That is definitely
an acquired taste.
