iOn iThe iPod

Yes, I finally relented and became a fully-fledged member of the iPod generation earlier this year. After years of stating, “An mp3 player from Tesco can do exactly the same thing,” the seductive powers of the nano proved the futility of my resistance. Call me a conformist, I don’t care. I know I’m being paranoid but I can’t help but think that people use them as status symbols so I try to mask the fact that I’m one of “them” by using black headphones (it’s my neurosis, leave it alone). Anyway, here’s what’s on the playlist of this evil symbol of decadence.

Adrienne – The Calling (Soft rock)
Better Days – Goo Goo Dolls (The one song I’m listening to most at the moment)
Wherever You Will Go – The Calling (Beautiful song if you’re in the right mood)
The Setup – Obie Trice (The token hip-hop track)
Terri Baaton – Raghav (See? I’m not a coconut! – more on this later)
So Good – Destiny’s Child (Must have chosen this without too much thought)
Pieces of Me – Ashlee Simpson (I still maintain that this is a good song!)
Party and Bullshit – Rah Digga (Hip-hop)
Numb/Encore – Linkin Park/Jay-Z (Good, good, good)
Never Let Me Down – Kanye West (Still undecided about Kanye)

And to prove that I didn’t deliberately leave out any particularly embarrassing songs that may have been on my current playlist, I will admit that my CD player at home has none other than Color Me Badd’s (sickening band that were famous c.1991) album in it *gulp*.

I can’t say that that snippet is actually very representative of my tastes but then again, maybe it is as there is a mix. My favourite artists/bands are: N*E*R*D, Mariah Carey, Prince, OutKast, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Bon Jovi, Red Hot Chili Peppers, R.E.M, Ryan Leslie, Lauryn Hill, 112, John Legend, Nas, Robin Thicke, The White Stripes, Traci Chapman, and erm, that’s all I can think of at the moment…
