I had my iPod on while lifting weights.
Suddenly, this guy was standing next to me looking like he wanted to talk.
I pulled out one ear bud and smiled at him.
He said, “Are you Christine Kane?”
I told him yes.
He said that he’d seen me perform and that he wanted to say hi. We talked a little bit about music. I thanked him for introducing himself, etc.
Then, as he was walking away he said, “God, it’d be cool to see what’s on your iPod.”
And I smiled.
When you’re a musician, everyone thinks that you walk around listening to Miles Davis or Bjork or Phillip Glass, lost in your own tragically hip taste in music.
Only here’s the thing:
As he said that, I was putting my earbuds back in to hear Ton Loc singing Funky Cold Medina.
And here’s the other thing:
Funky Cold Medina is not the uncoolest song on my iPod. (Now, an iPhone.)
This week, I was panting away on the elliptical. And, well, I’ll just go ahead and admit it right here…
Hannah Montana’s I Got Nerve came on and pretty much made my morning. (I turned my iPhone face down so as to hide her picture – lest anyone else who had “seen me perform” was nearby.)
I have musician friends who would crawl under a rock and die before they’d admit to some of their uncool iPod songs. In fact, most of them would mock me to no end for what I’ve written here.
So, I thought I’d open this one up to you, dear readers.
What is the uncoolest song on your iPod?
