Puttin' on the Ritz

So I've realized that my music is a tad...abnormal. Haha. I was walking in whole foods today picking up some ingredients for dinner tonight (homemade spaghetti sauce), and I had my iPod playing. I had three people ask me what I was listening to, and my answers were as follows: "The Rocky Road to Dublin" by the Dubliners, "Masquerade" from Phantom of the Opera, and "Ya Never Know" from Little Shop of Horrors. I got similar responses with each of them: A raised eyebrow, or a "my, you have unusual music tastes." Which I suppose is true. I do have extremely unusual music tastes. But mine are more unusual by modern standards. I don't mind listening to G105, in fact it's fun to drive to. But it's not real music. It takes no talent to sing a song like "That's Not My Name." It takes no talent to write that song, either. I think I've decided I was either born in the wrong era for music, or in the wrong country. And since music is a huge part of my life, that's not so great. Because eventually, the stations that play music I like are going to start playing music of this generation. *sigh* Dad says I just need a customized station in the car. I am forever changing the channel, because I am very particular about what I like or don't like. I wish there was a way to actually get a soundtrack channel or a celtic station without having satellite radio.

Yeah, same here. About the whole thing, except I don't go shopping with my iPod in my ears. That's just rude. ;)

Just because we don't like the extremely popular music doesn't mean we were born in the wrong era. It just means we don't like extremely popular music. Most musical soundtracks weren't written that long ago. It's just mainstream taste versus better taste. :P

Yeah, how can you shop while listening to music? I get distracted by the music they play in the grocery store! :D

Ah...Puttin' on the Ritz. I love that song. :)

I've noticed a good number of young people seem dissatisfied with what they hear on the radio.

Of course, I can understand the times I wish I had my iPod when I'm at Whole Foods. XD

(BTW, I really love reading every time you post, though I don't comment much.)
