A Case Of Mistaken Identity
According to my Last FM thingy, in the last hour I have played tracks by Avantasia, Jonathan Larson, Danny Elfman and, horror of horrors, Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber.
This is news to me, since I do not own music by any of these people, so it is at once a falsehood, a scary technical development (Last FM is supposed to link straight to your iTunes) and in the case of the Lloyd Webber, surely a deeply defamatory assertion likely to compromise my good reputation.
Curse of curses, I can't even delete this stuff from my 'Recent Tracks' list for the moment. (I have now - phew)
Has anyone else had this happen?
And if it were to, what would be the worst artist Last FM could ascribe to your listening pleasure?
Colin Newman - 'Not Me' (1980) (from this)
