30 Day Blog Challenge Topic: Put your iPod on shuffle and write first 10 songs that pop up
Here’s a secret for you. I don’t own an iPod. I have never owned an iPod. No Mp3 player, either. Nothing. All I have is a Blackberry with a memory card that I put some songs on a few years ago and all of them were ripped from my CDs.
The sad truth is that I don’t know how to consume music in this century. I have never even been on iTunes. If I am not listening to five year old CDs, I have the radio on. I know, I know…soooo last century.
I resisted CDs when they came out, too. I loved my cassette tapes. Eventually, I couldn’t get what I wanted on tapes, so I gave in to CDs. Now, I’m not ready to quit them. Problem is, I would feel so OLD and out of touch if I were to go into HMV to buy music.
So, this is what I’m left with. The most recent song on this list is Footprints by TOK (2005). Sigh.
Hip Hop – Dead Prez
Footprints – TOK
Break Ya Neck – Busta Rhymes
I Hear a Symphony – The Supremes
Fight the Power – Public Enemy
If You Don’t Know Me By Now – Otis Redding
Cat Stevens – Morning Has Broken
Take Me There – Mya ft
Back In The Day – Pharcyde
Heaven Only Knows – K-OS
I actually really love all these songs. As far as I’m concerned, they are all timeless. In keeping with the sentiment of this post, here is some old school for you. Enjoy!
