It's Jim Bauer But It's Not Jim Bauer

I share a name. A lot of us do. There are actually about three Jim Bauer's in the music world that I can find. All of us, myself included, have a very different style. But it IS interesting to see "us." The one thing we all three have in common is uncommon music, which tickles me. So, I thought I would share one my counterpart's music. It should probably be in the series "Music You've Probably Never Heard." Because you probably have not heard this music. But I am enjoying it. I feel like I am in good company. Jim Bauer's of the world unite musically. This is good. Incidentally, THIS Jim Bauer is probably better than me. Oh well. Go figure. It is what it is.

Oh, so that other Jim Bauer that You Tube suggested to me when I listened to one of your songs was NOT you??? It's not the first time it's happened. There's Lou Reed the rocker and Lou Reid the bluegrass musician; Mick Jones the Clash guitarist and vocalist on "Should I Stay or Should I Go" and Mick Jones of Foreigner; and one that recently came up in Dena's list of concerts she's attended: Johnny Mathis the pop singer, and Johnny Mathis the country singer/songwriter. Among many others.

One notices the overlap more nowadays with things like Spotify. But yep. Lots of it. It is possible it DID recommend the other two Jim Bauer's. I have about ten songs on mine, most off the Pink Flamingoes album and a couple of singles.

In my teen years and all the way though my 20's I was mistaken for Dr. Holden's daughter whose name was Karen also with the same last name. Thinking back now I wish I had met her lol.

Interesting. There is another person with my exact name that lives very close to me. I sometimes get her test results or get confused with her. Turns out that her husband is a cousin of my husband's; and he's never met him.

You're right, never heard of it. It is what it is, though.

Interestingly enough I do like a lot of the stuff from the other Jim Bauer's in the music. One more than the other.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, you are the very first Jum Bauer I have ever met!

@porwest My last name used to be Murray. I found there were too many Karen Murrays in the world for my liking! There are a few Karen Helliers also, but most live in the UK and I live in the US so that's better.

@Kouponkaren There are times when I run into other Jim Bauer's in circles I would prefer not to. Like insurance, for example, there's a James E. Bauer, Jr. that keeps popping up with a bunch of DUIs and I have to constantly remind agents I am James H. Bauer, Jr. lol

I am sure that Jim Bauer makes way more money off his music than I make off mine. lol

I have a sort of different last maiden name, so I'm never confused with anyone else. Now if I lived in Illinois, it might happen.
