My Music Mondays

I've left April open to my reader's picks for music.  Anyone - who hasn't already - who wants to put their hat into the ring can do so. Just looking for songs other folks like and want to share.

Who knows - this could leak into May.

This week comes from a long time reader and a longer time friend - who shall remain anonymous.  The email exchange went like this - which is why, of course, they'd want to remain anonymous.

Them:  My #1 choice is "Nightminds" by Missy Higgins. I found her totally by accident through Pandora several years ago, and if you look at Youtube comments it seems like a lot of others have done the same. She is awesome.

But if you hate that  <edited for your convenience until I get to this part> "Love You Like A Love Song" by Selena Gomez and the Scene - my guilty pleasure song. My desert island song. I can play it over and over.

Me: Selena Gomez?  I don't even know you anymore. (technically, I don't know her either. I've never knowingly heard a song by her.)

Them: I am 60% old man and 15% 14 year old girl and 25% unknown Don't be judgy!

Me: Don’t be judgyy?. 34 years later and it’s like you’ve never met me.


Of course, I'm going with his #1 choice.  I mean, it was his #1 choice!

I have heard of Missy Higgins, only because my niece covered one of her song on YouTube when she was still in high school. I really am unfamiliar with anything else she's done.

Clearly, my friend knows her better.  ....and our friendship is strong enough to withstand Selena Gomez.  If he does towards Demi Levato, I can't make any guarantees.

Oh Blobby. I don't need you to protect my identity. I stand behind my choices with conviction.

I will proudly play Selena Gomez as I kick your judgy ass. Then I will drive you to the hospital while playing some mellow Missy Higgins, as a good friend would.

If I was mean, I would type the words Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez Selena Gomez over and over again to try to draw some fan traffic to your website. Ideally angry fans. But I'm not like that.

I love you like a love song baby. That is all.
