    Music writers toss around the term genius so often the word is almost meaningless. Madonna's a genius. Kurt Cobain was a genius. Trent Reznor's a genius. Yeah, right. Fact is, musical geniuses don't come around so often. The 20th century has produced...

    On the CD sleeve of Ideal's latest record, the name of the song is "Get Gone." But in Houston (and probably other parts of the country by now), the song is referred to by its most noticeable, most frank line: "Get the Hell On." The phrase is like a s...
