My husband usually helps with bath time, so he gets to hear my random music selections and he made an interesting observation: "You sure like a lot of oldies". What? I don't listen to oldies! When I think "oldies" I think of things like this:
But the song playing was "She's Crafty" by the Beastie Boys! That's not old! That's hip, right?
|This just screams current|
A quick Google search showed me that "License to Ill" actually came out in 1986...which does make it pretty old. Then I started thinking about how when the D.C. rock station (DC101) does "90s at Noon!" I'm always like "I LOVE this song! I haven't heard this in FOREVER! I was in high school/middle school when this came out!" about everything, just like an old person.
I think even my N'Sync stuff might be showing my age now (what? It's good running music!). Don't you miss this?

Some of the music that I like (especially for running) is what I'd call "old", like one of my favorites "Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake (yes, I have horrible taste in music). However, most of it I considered to at least be mainstream and normal, but now I'm getting the impression that my music tastes aren't just lame, they are also old.
I've never been one of those people who is into a band before anyone has heard of it. You know the type, they look like this:

Or if you're a nerdy hipster, you'll like this:
If I haven't embarrassed myself enough in this post about my music tastes, I need to admit that the only current music that I've purchased in months has been country. I have a good excuse though: It's the kid's fault.
|NOTHING IS EVER MY FAULT WOMAN|
I can blame her because I never listen to the radio anymore because she watches The Wiggles in the car and when we are home, watching CMT music videos is her idea of a treat, so that's my only musical influence (other than songs like "The Big Red Car"). I even have Wiggles songs on my iPod...for the kid, yeah. For the kid.
Do you consider yourself to have good taste in music or are you embarrassed by the contents of your iPod like me?
