The Keyes to His Heart

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

rsz_1wheezyI love the films of the Coen Brothers, so even a lesser entry to their canon like Intolerable Cruelty brings me a great amount of pleasure. It was because of this that I was pretty excited to meet Irwin Keyes when he appeared at the HorrorHound Weekend on Friday, March 22, 2013.

Her style of music wasn’t exactly my cup of tea in the late 1980’s, as I delved into the pop metal scene and then after a year, drifted into alternative rock and indie pop. In fact, I scoffed at that sugary pop music ushered in by Madonna, Whitney Houston, and Debbie Gibson. But upon review of this music at a later date, I find it much less objectionable, particularly the number one Billboard hits Foolish Beat and Lost in Your Eyes, and a couple of others that hit near the top of the charts, namely Only in My Dreams and Shake Your Love.
