Top 5 Most-Played Songs on My iPod
1. “10 Dollar” (M.I.A.)–Ok, at least my #1 isn’t embarassing. If you don’t know who M.I.A. is, she’s fantastic. Although how I discovered M.I.A. is embarassing. I’ll tell you sometime if you really want to know.
2. “We Belong Together” (Mariah Carey)–Oh, stop. It’s a great song! Really, it is!
3. “Grindin'” (Clipse)–This is an oldie, but a goodie.
4. “Let Me Love You” (Mario)–Yet another song that further distances me from any hope of ever claiming any “indie hip-hop” or “hipster” street cred.
5. “Drop It Like It’s Hot” (Snoop Dogg & Pharrell)–Yikes. This one obliterates my feminist street cred as well. Snooooooop.
I’m not sure what this says about me other than that the four hours I spent yesterday uploading new songs onto my iPod was well worth it. It’s really a very time-consuming process, and I still haven’t reached 1,000 songs (I’ve got to at least get to a point where splurging for the 20GB was worth it . . .). What can I say, I’m not a music snob. Never have been, never will be. At least I have friends who can enlighten me. What’s sad, though, is that these top 5 songs aren’t even close to what I’d say are my favorites on my iPod (I love walking across campus, listening to Bao Phi rant & rave). Seriously, if I was to construct “Sarah Kim’s Playlist” on iTunes, none of my Top 5 Most-Played would be on there (well, except “10Dollar”). Perhaps my subconscious is hopelessly uncool, while my conscious self only just now remembered to put Blue Scholars on there (and I still have not managed to snag The Long March . . . .)
