So I worked at home today, and I had iTunes going on random. I have almost all of my music on my computer now, because I finally started moving the rest over from my old machine, The Beasty VAIO. Notes:
*It’s a little hilarious and very disconcerting to hear the dunna-dun-duh-nun-da-dah! of the Les Mis scene at the barricades and then, instead of hearing, “You at the barricades listen to this!” you hear a different man singing something in French. Yes, I bought the Original French Concept album accidentally many years ago from one of those music clubs. And I always load it on my computer but never listen to it. I have no use for French.
*I don’t know how to make it play all of my music except Christmas music, but I don’t mind so much when it’s Harry Connick Jr.
*”Spit on a Stranger,” my least favorite Nickel Creek song–I still think they’re saying “Ooh, meow” when they say “pull me out” or whatever it is they say.
*I still love *NSYNC unconditionally. They are the Best Thing Ever: America, after all. And um… Tracey? I call Twilight for this year’s event! No one can pick it besides me, because I’ve got dibs! All-important dibs.
*Through the horror of a compilation CD, I have a Gloria Estefan song. But I have to admit she’s listenable when she doesn’t have that awful Cuban beat behind her (my apologies to my Cuban readers… but seriously, I hate your music).
*My Eminem CDs are all the “clean” versions. Frank doesn’t see the point, because you only hear every other word. But I do love his voice and the beats. I hate most other rap.
*What ever happened to Evan & Jaron? I liked those little teeny boppers. Same with BBMak. (What? It’s not like I was into Hanson.)
*My latest vocal crush is on Hailey Westenra. I adore her angelic voice. I was streaming Yahoo radio one day at work, and she came on. I’ve found several artists this way recently, including Bond and Patrick Park.
*I still like Edie Brickell.
