So today I go to take a shower and I usually put my i-Pod on to listen to…and while Justin Timberlake’s
“Lovestoned” begins playing….it abruptly stops before the soap even suds. Low Battery..ain’t it a bitch.
Justin barely got past… “She grabs the yellow bottle, she likes the way it hit her lips…”
Anyway needless to say it was a song-less shower for me…
So naturally I finish up and go to into my room to get dressed
I put my i-Pod on my deck to charge and then I get a music light-bulb
Damn girl…where have you been?
And all of a sudden I want to listen to her music, but all I have on my new i-Pod is stuff from her current album the one with “Well, Well, Well” on it…and let’s just say I was more of a “Stepping Stone” girl.
So I break into the old dingy, probably dusty, silver i-Pod nano… My first introduction into the apple world…the small leap from a disc-men or walk-men, and the giant leap from my *NSYNC and Britney Spears 2 second song hit clips, I can’t tell you how many times, I used to play that shit just to hear the chorus to “This I promise you”…
Anyway as I put my old i-Pod on, my room was filled with Duffy’s voice and a whole bunch of memories as I scrolled through the artist list. I think it’s safe to say that i-Pod consists of a ton of One Tree Hill/ The OC featured music, and a whole lotta rock bands that I probably can’t stomach listening to much anymore. With the exception of their old stuff, I mean honestly you don’t even wanna know how I just freaked out dancing to Fall Out Boy’s “This Ain’t a Scene It’s an Arm’s Race,” and then there’s “Sugar We’re Going Down” and yes I was Singin’. I think that with age comes the great expectation of wisdom. And as I sat here listening to my old i-Pod jams, I was reminded of something, quite hysterical actually…
That awkward moment when you realize you used to be a really big My Chemical Romance fan and wore a lot of black eyeliner, and bought every shirt with a skull on it…wait was I goth that one point in my life? haha #letyourfreakflagflyyy
Although I have to say dipping into my past music vibes is also freakin’ awesome!
It always manages to help me rediscover some awesome since forgotten songs…
The one thing I can say about my musical taste is that it is quite a cluster fudge of genres…
We have the usual suspects of course…*NSYNC, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears…90′s GA-LORE!!!!
Bands that I once claim to love (thank you OTH/The OC/High school) like Fall Out Boy, Augustana, Jack’s Mannequin, Snow Patrol, Coldplay)… and The Fray whom still today I await their new album and consider them my favorite band.
A random slew of American Idol contestant music (thank you lime wire) 😉
And last but not least we take it back a little to the days of Motown where my parents influences really hit home, as The Jackson 5, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, and The Temptations sway their way in…
