No one else likes the music I like

I don't watch American Idol, but I saw a news headline about an American Idol 'scandal', so I thought I would take a peek. The article was about one of the contestants having a prior record contract, and critics were complaining that that doesn't make her undiscovered talent. The CD the contestant made was a horrific flop, selling only 400 copies according to the article.

I was surprised to read that this was Carly Hennessy's album, since I own it. I own 0.25% of all the CDs she ever sold. And it's a CD that I like more than most other CDs I have.

I found Carly because of my love of New Radicals. New Radicals was a band that put out one CD, but it was a great CD, and one of my favorites. New Radicals was the mastermind of Gregg Alexander. I looked up what other work he had done, and he produced Danielle Brisebois' album, which led me to find out that both Gregg Alexander and Danielle Brisebois did production work on Carly Hennessy's Ultimate High CD.

Even though she only sold 400 copies, you can download her CD from iTunes.

As I said, I don't watch American Idol, but this may make me take a peek now and then.
