Fun with iPod

ipodYesterday, I woke up and dragged my sorry backside to the gym. Wizard had gone to the gym the night before and I felt guilty.

I hate feeling guilty. Even worse, I made chocolate chip cookies this week so I feel guilty and fat.

At least this time, I remembered to take my iPod.

Only my iPod doesn’t look like this picture :-)  Bummer.

So while I was on the treadmill, listening to my music I started wondering if the people next to me could actually HEAR the music.  I have some EMBARRASSING songs on my iPod.

Some examples:

THE LION SLEEPS TONIGHT

I JUST CAN’T HELP BELIEVING  (Elvis Presley)

ALWAYS ON MY MIND (Elvis Presley)

I DREAMED A DREAM (Susan Boyle)

I swear, I have good songs too! Tons of them!

Now there’s the one song I’ve seriously flirted with downloading, but it’s Just Too Embarrassing.

Ready?

MONSTER MASH

Okay your turn–what’s your embarrassing songs?

    My MP3 is a Sansa and I have 2069 songs on it. I don’t have any songs that really embarrass me. I just don’t see the point of being embarrassed about my taste in music. Other people may make fun of some of my music, but I don’t care. They don’t have to like the same things I do. They don’t have to listen to my music either, unless their riding in my car with me. If that’s the case, too bad, suck it up. My car, my choice of music. So I say, don’t be embarrassed about what music you like. Different is good :) And if anyone doesn’t like that, well, phbbbbt to them :D

    Crap, I just saw a typo in my post. I meant to type “they’re” instead of “their riding…” I really do know the difference :)

    I agree with Dawn, there is no reason to be embarrassed by the music I listen to. You know why, because at some point in time, someone actually listened and liked the song too, lol!! That and besides, I leave the music downloading to my Halfing. Now remember she is 16 and into every kinda music out there, so I NEVER know what music I am getting. And believe they have some music out there that I hit the skip button when my Mom is in the car, lmbo!!! But I do have to say – at least I get to rock out!

    **sneaky shoes in hand.. WHO’s with me?!?! It is (stir-up) Trouble Thursday… Let’s hit the Lair**

    My musical taste runs from classical,R&B, rock, pop to top 40 and I don’t care if no one likes what I listen to since it’s my iPod.

    I like Monster Mash – has a nice beat to it.

    Your songs seem fine to me. About the only song I love that I feel a little embarassed about is “Volvo Driving Soccer Mom” by Everclear – especially when my daughter was around. She’s heard it now and I’m over it with her, but I still wouldn’t want everyone around town hearing it blaring from my stereo. It’s just nasty… but funny. Ya know?

    My husband is a music collector. He has over 100,000 songs downloaded. I think last time he checked if he started from the beginning and played the whole list it would play for a couple years without a repeat. This collection includes everything from the 50’s on up, from country to death metal. I don’t have an MP3, but I like all kinds of music, and I don’t think there is anything really embarrassing about personal tastes and style. I do cringe to tell people I actually liked Millie Vanilli (did I spell that right?), I don’t care if they were fake, some of their songs were good.

    I have the Beauty & The Beast by Jump 5 (the Disney version) on my iPOD along with Kiss The Girl, I Just Can’t Wait to Be King and I Wanna Be Like You. I just LOVE Disney songs. Don’t tell okay?

    Dawn, great attitude! I once was taking friends to lunch and had remembered what was in my CD player and turned it off before the music started. BEE GEES! Then I fessed up. I like a lot of rock and alternative too but that’s what I had in the player that day.

    Wow you have a lot of songs!

    By they way I didn’t even notice your typo until you pointed it out :-)

    Cecile you trust your daughter to download YOUR music? I’m so impressed! At 16 my kids’ choice of music caused internal bleeding :-)

    Wait, what? Stir Up Trouble Thursday? I didn’t get the memo! No one told me! I don’t have a spell ready to stop this!

    Dru, Monster Mash just makes me want to dance :-) That song cracks me up for some reason.

    B.E. I’ll have to go over to iTunes and see if I know that song. There’s a few songs I like that are a bit embarrassing. There’s one that makes me laugh my butt off but I can’t think of the title. The guy is “caught” on the bathroom floor…I’ll try to find it later.

    Erika I won’t tell! I once taped a Disney special for my young kids. Then when they were at school, I’d put the tape on just to listen to the songs while I cleaned the house. It was so long ago, I can’t remember it now. You keep my secret, and I’ll keep yours!

    Ashlynn, metal music can be inspiring :-) Maybe I should try that to get this this writing snag I’ve hit today.

    Oh no. Tell me you didn’t find it. :turns various shades of red: I meant to say “It’s Not Easy Being Green”. Yeah, yeah. I’m embarrassed that I like frogs songs. Kermit’s da man. I would never listen to Everclear.

    Ummm… Would you believe I was possessed at the time? That’s the ticket.
