The Musings of an Eccentric Diva

Welcome to the Musings of an Eccentric Diva. My motto is: Giving Hollyweird movies the finger one movie at a time. Enter at your own risk (insert evil Vincent Price laughter here).
 

BORROWED TIME AND MUSIC

A co-worker and I were having a musical discussion this morning. He was very surprised to discover that I am an old-school rock head and a lover of all music that's a little different...it's evident that I never gave him the link to my blog lol. I think he almost peed his pants when I told him I was a Frank Zappa fan. Not only did he give me the password to his Sirrus satellite account, he left his Ipod with me since he was leaving for the rest of the day. I promised to guard it with my life, plugged it in and took a listen to the 600+ tracks he downloaded on it. First of all, my ass has never TOUCHED an Ipod ever, I have an MP3 player but it's nothing fancy. The first song was Lenny Kravitz's "Dig In". The shit was so loud I swear it loosened the wax in my ears and I could not figure out how to adjust the volume. I have the patience level of an ant so I almost turned the damn thing off. I figured out how to turn it down and skipped through a couple of tracks...I see he's a big Jimmy Buffet fan...mmmm, yeah ok. Next on the list, a dance music medley that included the songs "Short Dick Man" and "Lick It".....rotflmao! I cannot imagine Mr. Button Down Shirt listening to this stuff while dropping it like it's hot...I'm side-eyeing his ass from now on. Next on the list, Outkast "I Like The Way You Move", yessir..I can get with this. I fast-forwarded past a sea of Ozzy Osbourne, Foo Fighter and various country music tracks to discover "Fantastic Voyage" by Lakeside but it was labeled as The Gap Band being the actual artist...someone doesn't know their music lol. After being in musical bliss for a few tracks I got ran over by "Everybody" from The Backstreet Boys...I'm clowning his ass for this one BOOOOOOO!. Right after that fiasco there is an excellent hip hop mix featuring DMX and Jay-Z. Right after the storm, he brings back the calm with "Il Cantro" by Pavarotti..great choice. Next up, "West End Girls" by the Pet Shop Boys...INDEED, he may not get clowned so hard afterall! Ruff Ryders Anthem huh...I'm cracking up imagining this dude get his swagger on and barking like DMX. Next up after Ruff Ryders Anthem, Barry Manilow's "I Write The Songs", oy vey! I can't clown him too hard on this choice because I like Barry too, but don't tell anyone. Next track, a live version of "Wonderwall" by Oasis *swoon*. Alice in Chain's "Heaven Beside You", I need to download this myself. This guy has very eclectic tastes with everyone from Michael Jackson to Frank Sinatra, I'm very impressed. His selections are very commercial for my tastes but he has something from damn near every musical genre and that's very cool. I'm very thankful that he was gracious enough to let me peek into his musical world. This Ipod thingy is not so bad after all..he may have a hard time getting it back from me. Now I'm seriously considering investing in one or something like it.
