Music makes the people come together.


I have a weird relationship with music.

Apparently, what I listen to is the worst. Once when I was working down at the Asylum during the day, I was playing Jason Mraz. And Jeremy made fun of it. And once I was playing Billy Joel and Jeremy made fun of it. And Mike has made fun of stuff. And Evan, and Betsy, and the list goes on.

So I try to keep the music I listen to on the DL.

Right now I have my iPod on random at work. The weirdest stuff is coming on. And as I go through it all – there are songs that I don’t even know. Did I download that? Did it come preloaded on my itunes? What?

And then ones I haven’t heard in a while so that's great. Love it.

Then there's the inappropriate ones which is hilarious. Nothing like having clients walk in while you're playing "Hypnotize" by Biggie or "The Seed" by the Roots and Cody ChesnuTT... or "Red Light Special" by TLC. :)

There are some that I just can’t listen to. A few years ago, I listened to John Mayer Trio all the fucking time and loved it. And now, when I listen to it, I get sick to my stomach. Hearing the song “Gravity” makes me think of really bad times and I can’t deal with it. The CD used to be my favorite – and now forget about it. Along the same lines, and time period, I’ve quickly skipped past “Smile” by Lily Allen, “Mas Que Nada” by the Black Eyed Peas, “Cupid’s Chokehold” by Gym Class Heroes and “Le Disko” by Shiny Toy Guns. All of them. Gross. Bad. Ugh.

Unrelated, but I also can’t listen to “Red Red Wine” or “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by UB40 or - it literally makes me cringe! I get a knot in my stomach and I freak out. It stems from a really, really weird child memory. A memory that no child would ever be weirded out by, but I’m from a different family where my sister and I often wonder why our parents are getting along, and what we can do to change that.

Music is a weird subject for me. Hm.

Wait... mom and dad aren't still getting along are they? I am not there to help prevent that. You have failed.
