Boring, as in 500, 600, 760 horsepower boring? I drove past a dealership with several new Ford Mustang Shelby GT500s, and they are beautiful. I plan to go drive one, and will bring my checkbook just in case....

Edited to remove my comment, which might be misconstrued as being overly snarky. . .

Yes, I remember Mantovani's orchestra, 101 Strings, etc. Dad had LPs of them (and Dean Martin too, whom he preferred over Frank Sinatra). The Magnavox hi-fi in our living room got a workout every evening while he sat in his easy-chair and read the paper or the latest Life magazine. That music was easy to listen to and didn't interfere with my doing my school homework out at the kitchen table. But when I was done I would migrate upstairs to my bedroom and listen to interesting shortwave broadcasts from far-away places on the Knight-Kit Star Roamer I had built, which I found more interesting.

That genre of easy listening non-vocal music is what they make the inmates listen to to keep them docile. :lol:

In the heyday of the big bands, through the amazing session bands the Funk Brothers, and the Wrecking Crew, only the best and most talented musicians got through the auditions. The music shows it; listen to any major recording from the late 1920s through the late 1960s.
