My Music Mondays
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.
