I thought I could be excused for not having an iPod because I’ve been working from home for the past couple of years. Then I found out that my mama, yes my 60-plus-year-old mother has one! It’s probably a hand-me-down from my bro but still! Embarrassingly, she had to show me how to use it because I’ve never touched one before! I haven’t even bought a CD this year. Wait, do people still buy CDs?
What’s this talk about iPods? Well, today being “New Monday” and this week theme being “Entertainment” I’m gonna listen to someone else’s playlist – namely my mama and my brother.
Selection from Mama’s List
Her playlist is quite unpredictable. There will be a couple of world music tracks and suddenly there’s a Clay Aiken or Fergie sandwiched in between. I think I’m in love with African music now, especially the ones coming from Mali.
Selection from Bro’s List
His list is mostly made up of the latest hip/hop and rock artistes. I just picked a couple that didn’t look familiar. They were all quite good. I feel like I’ve heard New Soul somewhere before. (Update: Ah it’s song for the Macbook commercial )
Now, why don’t you guys try listening to something new today?
