So, I've now had my first Streisand experience.
On the one hand, it's amazing that, for someone who has such a track record, her music has never crossed my path before. On the other hand, I see why.
Celine Dion is at least qualifiable as a guilty pleasure. In listening to Streisand's "Greatest Hits & More" and "Higher Ground", there was no pleasure. It was all guilt.
I came into possession of the CDs from my mom, who was getting rid of several discs, so I took them because ... I never say no to taking music. Now, however, I have to reconcile myself to the fact that she owned them.
I'll have to watch What's Up, Doc to cleanse my palate.
