iPod Confessional.

The top 5 most embarrassing things on my iPod. Because when I can’t think of anything clever to write, embarrassing usually does the trick.

5. The theme song from “The Greatest American Hero.” And, believe it or not, now you’re singing it in your head. You’re welcome.


4. The Hannah Montana soundtrack. Yes, originally I had little girls and had a valid excuse for having it on my iPod…but that doesn’t really explain why it’s still on there. When my girls are 15 and 20. And would rather clean the refrigerator than listen to it.


3. Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen. Yeah, yeah, I know. I’m the only one who ever thought that song was catchy. Just keep telling yourself that.


2. Both Sides Now by Judy Collins. Because I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now, and I really don’t know clouds at all.


1. FIVE songs from that one musical episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer when Joss Whedon was apparently high and thought having the cast sing made perfect sense. So, yes, feel free to blame Joss (we’re on a first-name basis) for Glee…cause I’m pretty sure it started with Singing Buffy.


It should be noted that friends do not ask to borrow my iPod during parties. And my iPod typically will not win the vote when deciding what to listen to in the car. Oh well. My musical tastes are clearly just too evolved for the main stream.

    I think that Judy Collins piece makes up for all the other ones. 😀

      Because it’s *that* awesome, right? 😉

        😀 It certainly is — that lady had a wonderful voice, and I’d listen to her read a grocery list. 😀

    My alarm in the morning is the theme song from “Greatest American Hero.” Good choice!

      Great way to start the morning 🙂

    But we can forgive Joss “Once More with Feeling” because Dr. Horrible. Period.

    • July 2, 2014 at 3:05 pm

      Hahahahaha. I forgot about (and love) Dr. Horrible!

    Okay, except for the Hannah Montana, where is the problem?

    • July 3, 2014 at 3:34 am

      Hahahaha. The way I see it – I’m not the one with the problem 🙂

    I…I just… Nope, I can’t…it’s too easy.

      Confession is good for the soul.

      • July 8, 2014 at 12:07 am

        My soul is fine with keeping those kinds of secrets

    Yep. The Greatest American Hero theme is now firmly planted in my head.

    I may need to borrow that exorcism kit.

    • July 8, 2014 at 6:48 pm

      Hahahaha. A little holy water should do the trick.

    Call Me Maybe hasn’t left my head since it first aired. It’s isn’t fair that songs can be that catchy.

    • July 17, 2014 at 7:29 pm

      See? I agree! Unfortunately, that admission has only brought me ridicule.

      • July 17, 2014 at 7:38 pm

        Play it loud and play it proud.

    I think you should have titled this something more along the lines of “The 5 items I have on my Ipod that most people aren’t awesome enough to appreciate”. I have forced my own oddball music quirkiness on my friends for years in an attempt to help them learn what awesome really is. Songs like Richard Cheese’s Down With The Sickness and Jonathan Coulter’s Re:Your Brains and the theme song from The Babysitters Club and such are what makes my Ipod just delightful! 🙂

      hahaha. I love it. Yes, we have to continue to do our part to enlighten the misquided 😉

    I think I can appreciate where you’re coming from. No one likes my musical tastes either. Granted, I do listen to a lot of weirdo folk, alternative, and doom metal, but still…

      A friend (who is admittedly a Britney fan) calls my music “whiny college music.” I can’t believe I have to listen to criticism from a Britney Spears fan.
