    We'll just politely disagree on this one, I think.

    Whenever I hear the opening chords to Africa come up on the radio...

    No, of course not.

    I still can't remember what my point was going to be, but take it from me that it was incontrovertible. Probably.

    Anyway, Can, eh? They're good.

    They really are. Someone gave me a shit-ton of 'you must hear this' music years ago on burned CDs. Tago Mago was among them, but I don't think I ever played it. Or maybe I gave it five minutes and didn't catch on. Who knows.

    Westlife and Beyoncé.

    I'm sure I must have heard something by them at some point, but I couldn't tell you what.

    (Or did Beyoncé sing 'Single Ladies'?)

    Yeah. In large part because of Cheryl Lynn's vocals, but everything about this track is wonderful. Special mention for Steve Lukather's guitar solo.

    I have heard music by Ed Sheeran, but I would not be able to recognise a song by him, never mind name one. The same goes for many contemporary big stars.
