I live my life with a soundtrack. In the car, in my home, at work (you know, back when I had work). I am a music junky.
If you looked at my iPod, you'd find a semi-eclectic mix of Hip Hop, Country, Classic Rock, Show tunes, and a whole lot from the late 90's, and early 2000's (What? I was in highschool. That music defined my generation). In fact, my iPod probably looks a lot like yours.
The only thing I steer clear from is Classical music.
Ugh. I hate Classical music.
Growing up, we didn't listen to the radio. My parents surrounded us with The Beach Boys, Chicago, Neil Diamond, and a whole lot of Classical orchestra music.
I can handle the first three, but I think I overdosed on the Classical stuff. It just makes me angry.
Whenever I blog, I do it with background music. And I think you can tell when you read it. For example, when I wrote this fairytale post, I was listening to Pandora's Classical Christmas station. And it is a lot more refined than my usual writing.
And when I wrote this graphically violent one? A combination of Alanis Morissette, Pink, and Avril Lavigne. Of course.
Today, I hopped on iTunes and decided to download my favorite hits of 2010.
And then I thought, "Why not them with you guys?"
My favorite hits of 2010:
American Honey, by Lady Antebellum
Hey Soul Sister by Train
(I have a pandora station based on Train. I love them that much.)
Just The Way You Are, by Bruno Mars
Secrets, by OneRepublic
Love The Way You Lie, by Eminem
(I have a weakness for Eminem.)
Rhythm Of Love, by Plain White T's
Empire State Of Mind, the Glee version
(Other songs that I love more when Glee sings them: Don't Stop Believin', Bust Your Windows, and Last Name)
Shy Ronnie, Featuring Shy Ronnie and Rhianna
(technically, this aired in December of '09. But I didn't see it until a month later, so I'm counting it.)
Honorable mentions: Stuck Like Glue by Sugarland, Love Like Woe by The Ready Set, Fireflies by Owl City, Watcha Say by Jason Derulo, Billionaire by Travie McCoy,
What kind of music do you listen to?
