Music vet and New Times scribe Lee Zimmerman offers his insights, opinions, and observations about the local scene. This week: Talk twosome Jimmy Cefalo and Manny Munoz embrace the music...
Given the fact that Cefalo generally professes ignorance as far as any
current musical trends are concerned -- aside from disparaging most of
today's newbies, he's also confessed that Italian conductor Mantovani's
light pop favorites occupy a rarefied place on his car stereo -- we
couldn't help but be curious about the team's musical preferences.
"Why I Am" - ditto, Dave Matthews
"Good Friends" - Livingston Taylor, James' little bro
"One Short Day" - the cast of the musical Wicked
"Dude Looks Like a Lady" - Aerosmith
"This" - "By Darius Rucker... Yes, Hootie does country. A fun song with great lyrics."
"Breathe" - "From U2's No Line on the Horizon album. It's part of my workout music."
"Five Long Years" - "This is Eric Clapton from his From the Cradle record. I always turn to this one if I am angry or overly stressed. In fact, I can play every guitar lick on my steering wheel as I turn it up to 11 on the car stereo."
"Done"- "By Montgomery Gentry. Yeah, so this isn't a new song either, but it is one of those tunes I always go back to when I need to work off a little stress. It really gets your fists pumping."
