Welcome to the too poppy blog. This is my first experience blogging so I thought I'd create one about something I truly enjoy every day, music. My music taste has been branded as "too poppy" by friends, hence the name. I don't believe it was intended to be complimentary, but I took it that way.

I'll try to avoid the elitist judgments other blogs (which I respect and read, by the way) tend to make when discussing music. Anything is fair game here. The only criterion is that the music can somehow be called pop music. So, for instance, a discussion about the Beatles, the quintessential pop band, would be quite appropriate. Tangents on free-form jazz or world music might not fit so well.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope this little blog will be just that, a little blog; a distraction for me from the realities of life. Hopefully, your experience with it will be the same.

I consider the Too Poppy core artists to include Matthew Sweet, Guster, Jellyfish, Beatles, Posies, Ben Folds Five, Crowded House, Beatles, Fountains of Wayne, U2, World Party...hmm, others will come to me. You get the idea. Like their sound and you might like this blog.
