A Whole New World!

If you want to have insight into a completely different world, let your kid (or another kid) borrow your MP3 player.

My daughter's iPod was stolen at school.  While we awaited her birthday money, she borrowed my mp3 player and put her own songs on it.  That was fine.  This morning I got it back and wanted to use it at the gym but decided I didn't have time to reprogram it.

Oh my goodness.  I was laughing out loud. The first song was "I don't like your girlfriend" in which the singer is telling the boy all the things wrong with his current girlfriend so, of course, the singer can take her place.  That song was on there TWICE!

Then there were a bunch of songs that were partially in English and partially Japanese.  No, it's not language acquisition, she's just into anime so likes these cross-cultural songs.

I will say the beat on these songs is really high, so my heart rate was up.  And the laughter did my soul some good too!

What a trip.

LOL. I can just picture it. If I ever listen to the radio now days I don't get the songs that are in the top 40. Glad it gave you a good laugh as well as good work out music :)

That is funny! I love my MP3 player but don't think I would enjoy someone else's. Thank God it's just music!

That sounds like a happy surprise! My oldest daughter drove us home from Dulles and we loved her CDs -- the first time I'd ever heard them.

I wish I had my old Julie Brown albums -- I know that she would love that stuff, even if it is 'old'!

I get this when my daughter and I are in the car together. I let her listen to the stations (she's a switcher) that she likes. I figure it is a way to keep a younger mind set (plus my hearing is going so I don't really hear most of the lyrics anyway.)
