As you may well be fully aware by now, if you’re a reader of my blog, I drive to work. Every day. My mornings are spent listening to the Danny Wallace breakfast show on XFM and my evenings are spent listening some sort of Spotify playlist.
Anywho. Yesterday I’m quite happily listening to starred list. Everything from Flight of the Conchords to Nine Inch Nails via Metric and Foo Fighters (There’s always some Foo Fighters.) It’s not exactly a themed playlist, but I like the randomosity of it all.
So. Happily listening away when I get a real shock of what next song starts up. Jennifer Paige’s Crush. I kid you not. I can’t even remember starring this track, but clearly I did! Funny thing? Not once did I think about skipping the track. If a song ever comes up that I’m just not up for, I will quite happily press skip.
Not this time. I listened along and had a little bit of nostalgia. Back to when the song was first released and everyone cool at school was singing along to it.
So very glad to have been alone in the car when the song started. No embarrassing, “Oh my god, how did that get there?!”. The mad, panicked scramble begins to find the button to skip to the next track while simultaneously trying to avoid that OAP and woman with child.
If you ever find yourself in the car with me and this does star blaring through the speakers, feel free to poke fun at me. I think I’ve opened myself up to it here!
