Want to know what’s playin’ in Pippi’s ride? You don’t? Well, I’m gonna tell you anyway. And, oh by the way, what are you listening to?
Remember the mixtape? You don’t? I do. I played those suckers until the tape would start to unravel. And then when it started to unravel, I’d pull it all the way out and let it curl on the floor. Just for fun.
The other day, I was the lucky recipient of a personalized audio mix CD with all my favorite songs—carefully selected by my husband–just because. And that sucker is packed. And eclectic. Just like me. He knows this.
A mix CD? Way better than a bouquet of flowers.
And now I can rock out in my car when I’m not listening to Free to Be You and Me (see related post).
Check out what I’m listening to:
- The Rolling Stones
- Alison Krauss
- Black Eyed Peas
- Madeline Peyroux
- Red Hot Chili Peppers
- Michael Franti
- Beastie Boys
- Jack Johnson
- Lily Allen
- Norah Jones
- MC Hammer
- Wayne Wonder
- Neko Case
- Jimmy Buffet
I would rather have a mix CD, with songs I love, than an ol’ bouquet of flowers…any day.
