In most aspects of my life, I’m your typical almost middle aged woman. I say almost because I’ve read you aren’t considered middle age until you’re 35 so that gives me a couple years yet. I say I’m typical because I have a mortgage, have a career instead of just a job, go to bed before midnight, know how to use the word “whom” correctly, am married, am a mother, and I drive an SUV. Pretty average stuff. Here’s the thing that sets me a little bit apart and what some people would be surprised to discover about me… I’m a music fiend. A LOUD music fiend. You know those people who drive up next to you with their radio blaring and you give them a dirty look because you don’t want to listen to what they’re listening to. That’s me – the one getting the looks, not giving them. I like a lot of the same music my almost 17-year old daughter listens to. And I mean I like it LOUD. I have a pretty good stereo in my SUV and I find myself wishing it were louder. I pay my subscription to XM radio happily as I couldn’t imagine life without it. At the top of my current “Favorite Songs Right Now” list are:
James Blunt’s You’re Beautiful
Daniel Powter’s Bad Day
Shakira’s new song featuring Wyclef (neither of whom I typically like but this one is catchy)
Natasha Bedingfield’s Unwritten (this song is especially good at the maximum volume level available)
The Killer’s Mr. Brightside (also at it’s best very loud)
Ne-Yo’s Love Songs (how could you not like this song?)
The Fray’s Cable Car
All American Rejects Dirty Little Secret (all the way up)
Goo Goo Dolls (don’t know the name – just saw the video this morning and heard the song for the first time yesterday but I love everything the Goo Goo Dolls do)
By the way, as I was typing this post, XM played Goo Goo Dolls and James Blunt – see why I like them???
So, what’s your favorite song right now?
