As many of you know, I had the Dreaded Stomach Bug 2013 on my birthday earlier this week. Sadly, my birthday festivities with Ashley had to be postponed.
But today I rallied! I took a shower, dried my hair, put on makeup, and dressed myself in non-pajamas for the first time in over a week. Whoo Hoo!!
As we drove away to lunch, I grabbed her iPod to search out some Barry Manilow as I sometimes do. Instead I found a playlist that nearly sent me into a tailspin.
Me: Hey, what kind of songs do you have in your “The Daily Dose” playlist?
Ashley: Oooh, those are songs I play at least once a day. They’re awesome!
Me: Great! I’ll play this list because…..OMG…what’s happening to my ears????
Ashley: What do you mean? You are being treated to some of the greatest songs ever written.
Me: Make it stop. It’s like torture.
Ashley: I think your ears must be stopped up from being sick or something. These are CLASSICS, Lisa.
Me: Classically cheesy maybe.
Ashley: Did the certified Fanilow just call my songs cheesy?
So I wondered…is it me? Has my musical taste suddenly vanished since turning a year older?
We’re going to let you guys decide. We’ve devised a challenge for you.
Below are 4 songs. THREE of these songs assaulted my ears from Ashley’s Daily Dose Playlist (Please let that sink in. She listens to three of these songs DAILY. That’s EVERY SINGLE DAY, people!) ONE of these songs does NOT actually appear on her iPod at all. (Much to her dismay, I might add.)
And there’s a lot riding on this.
If you all can correctly identify which one song Ashley DOES NOT currently own, I will buy it for her immediately. If you get it wrong, Ashley will make a “Daily Dose” playlist on my iPod and download ALL FOUR SONGS to it.
Me: Now, wait a second. What kind of bet is this? I totally lose either way!
Ashley: No, you actually *win* either way. If our peeps get it right, you will buy me a fantastic song and I’ll play it all the time when we ride around. If our peeps get it wrong, I’m getting you four great songs to begin your own new Daily Dose Playlist. WIN.
Ugh. I think you’ll quickly see, there are no winners here:
Peter Cetera: The Glory of Love
Richard Marx: Should’ve Known Better
Michael Bolton: How Can We Be Lovers
Bryan Adams: (Everything I Do) I Do It For You
You feel me now, don’t you?
UPDATE! MYSTERY REVEALED: Oh guys, I’m shattered. I was totally counting on you to get this one right to save me from the horror of Ashley’s hideous playlist on my iPod. But peeps…you failed me. *sob* Ashley is loading up my iPod with her easy listening nightmares as I type this. If she tries to slip in some Air Supply I’m going to take to my bed.
