Eclectic? I’ll own that.

A while back I confessed to reading in a broad range of genres. Good is good, and it doesn't have to be limited to one area. I've always felt that way about a great many things. I still go to movies, even after they stopped making good westerns.

I thought it might be fun to check out my music. I have close to 500 songs on my iPhone. This device speaks to my truck and plays music during my commute. I'll bet nobody has a more mixed up playlist than I do. This phone contains the following (in part):

Am I eclectic, or flat out insane? Seriously, who has a playlist with Jimmy Durrante, Reba McEntire, and Metallica on it? Let me hear it in the comments. Is your playlist a rival of mine, or do you stick with one style of music?
