WGOD: A Papal Playlist

Pope Francis and Patti Smith hanging out at the Vatican in 2013

Pope Francis and Patti Smith hanging out at the Vatican in 2013

I have a confession to make:  I'm a big Pope Francis fan.  I've been watching the Pontiff's every move since his arrival in Philadelphia with great curiosity.  The happiness and joy this man brings people -- with just his smile -- is beautiful.  How anyone could say anything  bad about this Pope is beyond me.  In celebration of his visit, I give you WGOD:  A Papal Playlist.  #PopeinPhilly

Musicians I’m Supposed To Like But I Don’t and I Kinda Feel Badly About It But Not Really List


In no particular order...

  • Miles Davis - Kind of Blue? More like Kind of Blows.
  • Janis Joplin - I'll listen to "Turtle Blues" and "Summertime." Everything else makes me want to overdose on heroin.
  • REM - Shiny Happy Bullshit if you ask me.
  • Live Led Zeppelin - A 25 minute guitar solo followed be a 25 minute drum solo followed by a 25 minute mellotron solo. Musical masturbation at its very best.
  • Mumford & Sons aka Butthole & Sons
  • Garth Brooks - I've said it before and I'll say it again: Guys wearing really big hats cannot be taken seriously.
  • Solo John Lennon - The majority of the "serious Beatle's" solo work was seriously boring.
  • Bob Marley - Somebody please tell me what type of ganja to smoke because I just don't understand the fascination with his music or reggae for that matter.  
  • About 95% of all the music recorded in the 1980's - Come on, I know I'm not alone with this one.
  • The Smiths - Fucking. Hate. The. Smiths.  I'd rather go to the dentist then listen to The Smiths.  #KillMorrissey
