film fatales #51: mikey and nicky (elaine may, 1976)

bonus music friday: music january

Last.fm cranked out a report on my Spotify listening for January. Some highlights:

I listened to an average of 39 tracks a day, a total of just over 3 days worth. This is surely impacted by my "listening" at night as I fell asleep.

Bing Crosby was at the top of many lists, no doubt reflecting the fact I'd read the second installment in Gary Giddins's biography of Der Bingle.

The top five tags for my listening were: Classic Rock, 60s, Rock, Folk, Blues.

They have something called the Mainstream-o-meter, which compares my favorite artists to favorites overall. I came in at 52%. My most obscure artist (I don't think anyone else on Last.fm listened to this one in January) was Gil Turner, a folkie from the early-60s Greenwich Village scene who helped introduce Dylan to that crowd. The song I listened to was "Benny 'Kid' Paret", which appears on Broadside Ballads, Vol. 1 ... Dylan had three tracks on the album under the Blind Boy Grunt pseudonym, including "Only a Hobo".
