It's not that I know that Ray Stevens

It's not that I know that Ray Stevens did a version of Misty, it's that I'm puzzling between the different versions of Misty that he recorded that makes me question what I'm doing with my life.

could be worse. I was scouring the youtubes for techno remixes of Sleigh Ride, trying to find one that wasn't flat-out terrible.

I am somewhat angry at this post for obliquely reminding me that Ray Stevens, he of that one country novelty song tape I remember from childhood road trips, decided his best path forward in life would be singing about his hatred of immigration, Obamacare, and "voter fraud".

Ugh. I was unaware about his descent into ugly, although I suppose that pretty much anyone who sings fondly and only slightly chidingly of southern culture is doomed to being exposed as a horror later.

There are a couple of mildly uplifting modern pop performers that I am anxiously waiting for the shoe to drop on; I like their music, but at this point it feels inevitable that anyone who's optimistic is gonna be exposed as someone that I'll have to be explaining away my fandom of later.
