It’s funny how your appreciation of a piece of art changes once you know more about the artist’s inspiration for that piece. I watched a wonderful BBC Four documentary about Delius last night.

The documentary made me think that I should certainly seek out more of his work: he was a fascinating character (if not always a likeable person), and his music was rather avant-garde for the time.

Had a sudden hankering to hear this again, you know how it is.
I detest the music of Britney Spears — particularly this song, because Mr. Bsag knows that he can irritate me by singing the hook in a falsetto register, over and over again…
