Song Description

Loves and hates in music

Story Behind the Song

Love of music

Lyrics

From orchestral to Mungo Jerry
Heavy metal to Chuck Berry
My love of music has always been eclectic
I like traditional folk and Norah Jones
Country rock and Two Tone
Make time for acoustic or electric


Pink Floyd is one of my things
AOR or Western Swing
Always seemed to leave me feeling calmer
From disco to power pop
And for grunge I sometimes shopped
But I never got Emerson, Lake and Palmer


Chorus

I don't know why these 3 guys
Never appealed to me
Nothing worthwhile I could ever see
My dislike never even abated
When their fans abbreviated
Their name To ELP


Verse

Americana or folk rock
Dylan I would never knock
In spite of his occasional bad grammar
Lulu sang "Shout" I think her version
Holds up against the Isleys', my assertion
Even she had more merit than Emerson, Lake and Palmer


Billy Joel made some awesome tracks
Delta Blues, soul and Stax
I love avant pop band the High Lllamas
Soft Cell and Elvis Costello
For me Prince was a popular fellow
But I never got Emerson, Lake and Palmer

Chorus

I don't know why these 3 guys
Never appealed to me
Nothing worthwhile I could ever see
My dislike never even abated
When their fans abbreviated
their name
To ELP


Verse

"Pictures At An Exhibition"
Caused in me derision
I even liked Focus and Jan Hammer
All types of music on close inspection
Have found a place in my collection
But I never got Emerson, Lake and Palmer
