So I was in the cafe this afternoon after teaching my rock class, and “Like a Virgin” was playing on the radio. I was singing along with the verse, before the first chorus, and nodding my head and grinning up a storm. Go figure. It made me think of my dear friend Lynn (Lynndi Lauper in her professional life as a conceptual artist), and how much I love seeing her perform; and it made me think about what an excellent backing track the song has. And it made me think about the comments various people left on the post about “what if the music sucks,” and the idea that suckiness is so totally context-dependent.
