That song stuck in my head…

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

I have been loving my 20 on 20 XM radio dial these days.  Because of my ridiculous commute, I have been getting in a lot of radio time these days (At least 2.5 hours a day, to be exact…). Sometimes I feel like they play the same things over and over (for obvious reasons—I get it), but I feel like over the last two weeks there was a boom of new singles…

These are the songs I currently say, “I love this song!!” when they come on the radio:

1. That Airplane song “Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars? I couldreallyuseawishrightnow, wishrightnow, wishrightno-o-ow…” This song inevitably gets stuck in my head on the way to work every morning.  The 267 Toll Road sucks, but this song makes it just a little bit better…

2. That Will.I.Am/Usher collaboration.  “O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-my-God.”  Homegirl busts a car dancing move every time that song comes on. No lie.

3. That new Train song.  Who knew these guys would have a comeback? “Wheneveryoneelseisgettingoutofbed, I’musuallygettinginit.  I’m-not-in-it-to-win-it.  I’m just in it for yooou.”

4. Sarah Bareilles’s new song.  I love all of her stuff, especially her perky stuff.  The 267 Toll Road REALLY sucks at 5pm, so I’ll take the 3 minutes of perkiness out of the other 67 minutes of torture.

5. That Mike Posner song. The one about wearing designer shades to hide your face and “You probably think that you’re cooler than me…”  It’s a different kind of song.

6. Any song by Jason Derulo

7. Alejandro by Lady Gaga because…it’s Lady Gaga’s latest single. (For the record, it does sound like an old school Ace of Base song.)

Soooo… That’s what carries me through my mornings and afternoons—what about you??
