Finally I feel like I’ve joined the 21st Century!!

After years & years of wanting one I finally bought one! I am the proud owner of an Ipod Classic!! Ever since my college roommate Danielle got one in like 2005 I’ve wanted one. Not going to Las Vegas has freed up a lil extra money I had been saving so I bought it yesterday. I actually do have a vacation trip in the works so I'll tell you all about it later in the week! I was going to get an Ipod Touch with 32GB but I realized for less the money I could get 160GB. I’m completely comfortable with not being able to touch the screen. Lol.

Now this is where I need your help everyone!! Okay so I bought a new laptop about a year ago but I’ve been hesitant to use Limewire or Bit Torrent so I have like no music on laptop at the moment. I’ve been using at work to play some tunes but now I gotta REMEMBER EVERY SONG I USED & STILL LIKE TO DOWNLOAD!! It’s going to take me forever downloading everything but I’m ripe for the challenge! Now your part…

What songs do you think I must have on my ipod? What’s your favorite songs to rock out to on your ipod or phone?

I’ve already downloaded some of the New Moon & Twilight soundtracks, I got the Spice Girls & the Backstreet Boys, some Black Eyed Peas, some Rancid & Nine Inch Nails, AFI, My Chemical Romance, Reel Big Fish, Gorillaz, Yes, Aerosmith…but that’s all only about 30 songs. I have enough room for 16,000 songs so keep rolling with the tunes suggestions!! I like almost everything! I’m all ears……

Oh congrats on getting an ipod! I still don't have one and I'm always borrowing my brother's, haha.. but when I do, I love listening to the soundtracks to Veronica Mars, Dawsons Creek, and 500 Days of Summer. I also like Blur, and the best of the Bangles for some fun classics.

Yay congrats on the iPod! I love mine, couldn't live without it. Currently I'm obsessed with Eminem's new album, it's SO good, not sure if you're a fan but you will be once you listen. I like The Script's new album, Daugtry and Lifehouse's latest albums are also fab.

Congrats on the ipod!! How exciting. My favorite song is Bless the Broken Road by Rascall Flatts! But some people hate country music, so I'm not sure if you would like it or not! :) xoxo

Tights Lover said...

Hmmm. Gotta throw some Vampire Weekend and some Spoon on there. Also I'd think you'd wanna add in some Metric and Paramore. And if you're feeling a little old school, can't go wrong with The Clash and The Cure. ...and of course...for those days when you're feeling a little gangsta...I might suggest a few of the Wu-Tang Clan's greatest.

Aren't you glad you asked?

Jennifer Fabulous said...

One word: Morrissey. Oh, and download songs from The Smiths as well. That's his former band.

Congrats on the ipod! That's awesome news. :)

Lady Grey said...

Fun stuff!
Regina Spektor, The Morning Benders, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Florence + the Machine, Vampire Weekend, The Tallest Man on Earth, She & Him.

Have fun!

Since you mentioned Spice Girls, some guilty pleasure workout artists include Britney, NSync, Fergie, some others come to mind, but can't remember song titles or artist names.

Other fun artists - David Gray and Craig David.
