Pitch Please: iPod shuffle
When I’m not cramming my head with information from 300-page novels or venting my frustration about the Tigerfest headliner on Twitter, I’m listening to music. OK, I lied. I’m listening to music when I’m doing these things as well.
I decided to do something called a “no shame shuffle.” On Tumblr, people have a set number of songs that they list on their blogs when they go through their music libraries. I thought it would be more fun if you guys got to poke fun at my taste in music by setting my iTunes on shuffle, listing the first few songs that pop up and giving a brief synopsis about why the song is there in the first place.
Ladyhawke – “Black White & Blue” – Last year, when I was excited for her sophomore album to be released, I downloaded this before taking the time to listen to it in completion. I played it a total of four times before I was bored of it and its parent album, “Anxiety” didn’t encourage me to give it any more spins
Spencer & Hill – “Dance (Original Mix)” – I don’t remember how I found this one, but it’s one of my many workout playlists so I’m assuming I added it with the intention of running to it. That never happened.
Kate Nash – “Foundations” and Vh1’s “You Oughta Know” artists for the win. Getting ready school in the 10th grade was not complete without seeing this video at least twice before I left the house.
Stefani Germanotta – “Something Crazy” – I was curious about Lady Gaga’s humble beginnings before being launched into superstardom and this is what I came up with. A pop/rock song that has nothing to do with some random Spanish guys or marrying darkness. How odd.
Avril Lavigne – “Tomorrow You Didn’t” – Freshman year of college, I was feeling the teen angst that high school was supposed to provide, so I went on an Avril adding spree (I feel world judging me) and YouTubing around brought me to this.
Jasan Radford – “I’m Going Digital” – I have an abnormal addiction/obsession with “Digimon” and during the second season, they would play a snippet of this during the fight scenes. When the movie came out, I got myself a physical version of this soundtrack and spun the shit out of this. I’m not even sorry.
Kelly Rowland – “Daylight (Feat. Travie McCoy)” – BET led me to this one. It was their “New Joint of The Day” on 106 & Park and it was a decent enough track.
Cheryl Cole – “Call My Name” – I only listened to this because Calvin Harris wrote and produced it for her. Let’s just say from March to August of 2012, this got five listens or more a day.
Third Eye Blind – “Deep Inside of You” – One of my favorites from this band. I always assumed that the girl in the video was the one singing the song before I knew what lipsyncing was. It was the main reason why I remember the song.
No shame in my music game.
