Today I was attempting to “fix” my play list for work on my iPod. My husband has downloaded nearly half of our music (4386 songs) onto iTunes and since I am lazy when it comes to choosing my music I just let iTunes choose for me. This results in a strange mix of Bruce Springsteen, Kanye West and My Chemical Romance. All good on their own but sometimes this mix gets to be too much at work. I knew I needed to address this when K-Ci and JoJo came on during a lunchbreak and I burst into hysterical laughter, much to the amusement of my team.
While scrolling through I came across The Postal Service, I don’t remember the last time I listened to them. Once I started looking for things I hadn’t heard in awhile I abandoned my original mission.
Strange things were found on the old iTunes. I know I don’t own the Friends soundtrack, but my husband obviously does. I probably would have put that one in the trash instead of uploading it, but whatever. I do have a lot of questionable music from college. Actually, I got most of it at the bookstore on my student charge and am probably still paying for it. Too bad that Republica cd didn’t turn into a classic…
It’s not like we’ve got a bunch of top 40 crap, we aren’t bringing sexy back at our house, we already have Marvin Gaye. Radiohead, U2- every cd ever. Springsteen, Stones, Willie Nelson etc. We’ve got good stuff. I can’t stop buying actual cd’s. I lost a ton of music we had downloaded from iTunes when we had a nasty virus so that was money down the drain for me. I like to look at the art, read the liner notes, learn the real lyrics. So what if they are taking up an entire room.
