Magic Ipod

I wasn’t going to do this one (stolen from Jodi who nicked it from elsewhere) but I just had to. I couldn’t help myself. I had to know what my friends really think of me. And I like the answer…I don’t exactly believe it but I like it. But some of the answers were fun anyway. And my mom would certainly appreciate that my ipod (ok, well, I am pretty sure she kind of knows what an ipod is but…maybe not) told me to “stand up straight.”

Now, Brenda commented that she didn’t want to show her playlists after reading mine and Jodi’s but I have to say, I have one particular playlist that contains the music I listen to at work. Then there is the rest of my music. And I make no bones about the fact that I like what I like. I like me some Spice Girls, I like me some Culture Club and I love me some Django Reinhardt. I will pretty much listen to anything. Heck, just yesterday I was listening to the Marriage of Figaro in my car. I don’t know what they heck they are saying but I sure like the way they say it.

My lack of musical discretionhas on occasion driven my friends a little crazy, I don’t think that Jules ever wants to listen to Loretta Lynn or the Barenaked Ladies ever again. But she doesn’t have to. At least I know that Lava Bear and I are agreed that “Toxic” truly is Britney’s best song ever.

And Brenda, like I said, you can’t go wrong with Greg Kihn. You really can’t. And just because I can, here is the proof of my longstanding love for him. This is a photo of a clipboard made for me circa…1990 or so, maybe a bit earlier, by my best friend. Among the many photos pasted on it…there is a photo of one Mr. Greg Kihn.


Jodi said...

Are you holding out on me that you are a closet Barenaked Ladies fan? I had no idea. Of course, I probably scared you with my over-the-top fandom.

I'm telling you...Nickel Creek's version of "Toxic" is much more bearable!

Brenda Griffith said...

Now Barenaked Ladies, I can get into that. Seen them twice, have all their music including the new Christmas set from iTunes. Luckily Dave likes them too--but then he likes Flaming Lips, Bellrays, Twilight Singers, Super Suckers, and more but he is tired of shouting names to me in the office...

Chris said...

I posted a variation of this on Jodi's blog, but I do tend to repeat myself...

I can't imagine that anyone would be boring enough to not have a very eclectic playlist on their iPod. It certainly wouldn't be someone I'd be interested in talking to.

The "guilty pleasures" songs are even more fun. While we were on our recent trip, I hooked my iPod up to the car stereo and put it on shuffle. I got plenty of "Why do you have that on there?" looks from my wife (plus a few "not safe for young ears" frantic skip-pressing on some songs).
