i wouldn’t say matt and i butt heads frequently (well, no more than any other old married couple), but there is one thing we argue about day in and day out. it’s not the clothes on the floor, or who left the dishes in the sink (he did), or who gets up with the dogs (always me). no, it’s something much more significant. the car radio.
you see, we listen to drastically different types of music. think kanye (him) vs. t. swift (her) or drake (still no idea who that is) vs. adele. our general rule is that whoever is driving controls the radio, with one exception. we each have a 10 song undroppable playlist. 10 songs that will stand the test of time, never get old, and just must.not.be.changed when they come on the radio. as such, if one of those songs comes up while flipping through the stations, we must stop, no matter who is driving.
sidenote: who remembers the good ole days of the walkman?
i thought it would be fun to share my undroppable playlist — and maybe, just so you all can get a good laugh — i’ll share matt’s sometime in the future.
so, without further ado, my all time top 10 song list as of january 30, 2012.
- collide (howie day)
- drops of jupiter (train)
- feel my love (adele)
- fast car (tracy chapman)
- fix you (cold play)
- hold my heart (sara bareilles)
- iris (goo goo dolls)
- one more for love (five for fighting)
- little house (amanda seyfried)
- stay (lisa loeb)
almost every song has a story behind it, in addition to the fact that i love it musically. most importantly, one more for love by five for fighting was our first dance at our wedding. it’s not super well know, but it’s a good one!
do you fight over the radio with family members?
did you have a walkman? discman?
what would you say is your all time favorite song?
