This may fall under the category of shooting fish in a barrel, as there is no list like this that is not immediately vulnerable to criticism, but this list of Mario's fave tunes has some surprises, in having few surprises.The list has the feel of being put together by Mario's people, rather than by any individual. When I was wooing the cinetrix, there was once a grad seminar that met at one of my classmates' houses. He happened to be dating someone I had dated previously, so I gave his crib more scrutiny than otherwise. My grad student self was impressed by his ownership of curtains, an undreamed of refinement for me, but dismayed by his cd collection, which I described in a letter to the cinetrix all the hallmarks of having been assembled by a a team of FBI agents charged with creating a plausible CD collection for someone in the Witness Protection Program, part whose cover was that he liked "indie rock." Mario's list is kind of like that in its predictability.
