...it will be too soon.
This happens every time an artist descends on the city for a concert.
In an obvious effort to promote sales, all the radio plays is ONE and only ONE of the featured act's songs over and over.
And &*%^#! over again.
I was ecstatic Kid Rock was finally here last week. Not because I am a fan and eagerly awaiting the show.
It's because I never, ever, ever want to hear "All Summer Long" for as long as I live.
I am positive listening to it once per hour for the last bloody two months will do me just fine. It is now permanently etched on my brain.
A lot of Big Name Acts*(BNAs for short) have come / are coming through the city in 2008:
And you can be sure that each time there will be massive overplaying of the BNA's latest hit until I am sick to death of said BNA.
Well, perhaps with the exception of Elton John.
These musicians have a plethora of music to offer; some with decades of compositions to choose from. But instead of delving into those resources, we are forcefed BNA's newest single on their new CD ad nauseum.
Until the next BNA is on its way. Then we go through the same torture once more.
Marketing at it's finest. Make listeners so disgusted that they can't wait until the BNA is well out of town.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go turn off the radio and put my iPod on shuffle.
