music friday: the rock and roll hall of fame

The latest inductees were announced a couple of days ago. Perhaps most notable for this blog is the selection of Jimmy Iovine in the non-musicians category. Iovine (or someone pretending to be him, and why would anyone do that) commented on a 2003 post about Tony Peluso ("Did you go into therapy once you found out that 'Goodbye To Love' was conceived, written, and performed by the Carpenters?")

Two of the people I voted for are now in: Dolly Parton and Eminem. I also voted for the New York Dolls, Dionne Warwick, and A Tribe Called Quest, none of whom made it. Finally, Judas Priest adds themselves to the list of Hall of Famers I've seen live.

Here is a Spotify playlist of the above-mentioned artists:

And for those with no time for Spotify, here is the only Carpenters song I ever liked:
