What My Pandora Stations Say About Me!
Hey there, all, and Happy No Pants Wednesday!! Hope you’re celebrating in style.
Today’s lunch was…. identical to yesterday’s.
I’ll be frank: repetitive lunches are sometimes necessary when you’re trying to clear out a fridge full of produce and eggs. I wanna leave the beau with the bare minimum for his weekend of manliness (you know…. beer, meat, and cheese.) All his favorites.
Last night, on #fitblog, the questions were all about music. The music you work out to, the music you’re embarrassed about, and all that jazz. And it got me thinking about my (many) Pandora stations that I’ve made over the years. For a little glimpse into my inner workings, I present:
What (Most of) My Pandora Stations Say About Me!
- Britney Spears Station
Deep down inside, I’ll ALWAYS love whatever the Pop Princess du Jour is. It was all the finest ladies in the past: the Spice Girls, Britney, Xtina, Beyonce,
Cher(never), Mandy, and (most recently) the Mother Monster herself. Something about powerful rockstar ladies always gets me hype.
- Wicked (original Broadway cast)
When I was younger, I’d sing at any chance I had. Choir, showers, volleyball tournaments. Once, I sang the National Anthem at the Baltimore Convention Center. It was the most exhiliarating experience I had in my days of yore. To this day, I still sing, though I tend to keep it in the shower. But this station is full of Disney songs, Wicked songs, other Broadway musical songs. I’ll catch myself listening in the grocery store and accidentally bursting into song. Or, you know, not so accidentally. Everyone deserves a little show now and then.
- Today’s Hip Hop and Rap
I’ll admit, I was the proud owner of my share of Eminem CDs. And sometimes I garble together words really fast to pretend like I rap. But truly, this station is SUCH a great one to power through strength training, or a particularly tough elliptical run. It’s like Dr. Dre is right there with me, pushing me further and faster. That’d just be…. the coolest.
- Party in the USA
I’ll admit, nothing makes me wanna dance more than my pop music. And, for any of you that are going to the Healthy Living Summit this weekend, if you’re lucky, I’ll break out some sweet dance moves. And by “sweet dance moves”, I mostly mean “watch out for the flailing giantess…. she’s trying to Dougie.”
You’ve been warned.
- Sigur Ros
Looking for sleepytime music? Look no further. Sigur Ros is my relaxation station. Explosions in the Sky, instrumental jams, words that I don’t understand. I use it to relax, and once in college, I ended up falling asleep my teacher’s office waiting for her. Thanks a lot, Sigur.
- I Told You So – Keith Urban
When you date a boy who attends college in Mississippi, and you drive there several times…. You either learn to love country music, or you stop listening to the radio on the 12 hour drive down.
Just call me a country girl.
