Hi. My name is Lincee and I’m a playlist-aholic.
I have an unhealthy addiction to my iPod. I am always making mixed tapes (CDs) for friends, thinking of fun themes that will bring the recipient happiness and joy for years and years to come. My latest creation, “Channeling My Inner Black Woman” consisted of Ella, Etta, Aretha, Tina, Whitney, Otis, Ray Charles and James Brown.
“Inner Black Woman…Or Man” just doesn’t roll of the tongue.
Below are my latest downloads and my reasoning for adding these songs to my iPod family:
Dashboard Confessionals: I have to thank my friend Blake for introducing me to this group. He gave me an entire CD of their live album and it has a permanent home in my acoustic playlist.
Poker Face and Bad Romance: Remember how I get on the pop culture band wagon about a year after the pop culture is relevant and/or popular? That’s how I am with Lady GaGa. I had convinced myself that I could care less about her music and took great pride in telling everyone in my inner circle that not only did I not own any of her songs, I also did not or ever plan to have Beiber Fever.
After seeing the Easy A trailer a few times, I kept wondering what that cute catchy song was at the end. Of course, it was “Poker Face.” And when Rachel and her Mom sang that darling tune around the piano on the GaGa episode of Glee, I knew it was time to bite the bullet and invite the good Lady to join my iPod.
Baby by Justin Beiber: No comment.
Toxic: Speaking of Glee, how amazing was this rendition of Britney’s hit that I never cared about until now? It was stripped down and even had a showcase for our beloved Mr. Schuester. I can whole-heartedly relate to that girl in the stands when she confesses, “I want to have your babies!”
Did I write that out loud?
