Playlist playing

I’ve been using forcing myself to attack long-term projects on my ToDo list. Last weekend was sorting through 20 years of photos. Last night I finally ripped all of my classical music CDs onto my iTunes and hence, my iPod.

(If you are a new visitor let me explain. My iPod is more important to me than my computer. I think it is the best piece of technology since…. the microwave oven? No, it’s bigger than that. The airplane? No, I can live without airplanes. My iPod is as important to me as my car.)

Mer was watching me fiddle and she mocked the boring names of some of my playlists. She was right. They were awful. So I just renamed them. Here are some examples:

Old Playlist
Classical
Country
Loud Housecleaning
Work Music

New Playlist
Mozart in Da Hood
Hot Cowboys
Rowdy & In Trouble
Cranking Words

I also have playlists for various Works In Progress, keyed to personality traits of my main characters.

What’s the name of your coolest playlist?

  1. Well gee thanks for the procrastination help! Now I feel like I need to rename my iPod playlists! 😉 I love your renamed lists! *ponder*

    Speaking of iPods – I left my Belkin iPod charger plugged into my car while I was in CA for almost 2 weeks. Er, let’s just say I’m grateful to AAA and the jump start I got yesterday morning!

    Happy iPodding!

    1. Mozart is honestly the coolest composer ever. He seriously rocks. =) Ever since we watched Amadaeus, which wasn’t historically accurate, but whatever, I love him.

      Mozart is love.

  4. “Hot Cowboys” <3 You're my hero. Really, people my age (I'm in the area of 14-19) Don't like Country.

    But my playlist doesn’t have any… ‘fun’ names. I named them what they are.. I must go though and rename!

    I want an Ipod, or any MP3 player that’s portable will work.

    Anyway. Yeah….I have nothing fun.

    1. Thank God for teen country fans. =)

      Lovin’ the Toby Keith. And old school country for that matter– Dolly Parton, George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Waylon Jennings.

      Sweet.

        1. And Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley (I love his new one–“Alcohol”). And Reba and don’t forget Big & Rich.

          I love Gretchen’s CD, “Here for the Party.” I bought the delux DVD edition, and it’s just awesome. I especially love the last track, “Pocahontas Proud.” I come from a small town, Lititz, right by you, and I’d love to be the big thing from here.

      1. Awesome!

        I LOVE Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Dolly Parton, Gretchen Wilson, Tammy Wynette, can’t forget Garth though!

        Gretchen Wilson is probably my favourite though. On Fictionpress, my pen name is “RedneckWoman” So, yeah, you’ve got to have that girl power!

        1. I’ll have to check your account out. I have some sort of account there… forget the username… rider-of-rohan23 I think. I don’t know. That’s my fanfiction.net account, where I have a boatload of stories… I don’t think I’ve uploaded at FP.net yet.

  7. No, I liked the Loud Housekeeping one silly.

    Well, you can see all of mind, but my favorite is Ozdust Ballroom. It has all the Wicked stuff plus all of the other Wiz songs I have.

    1. Re: playlist

      make stuff up! play! have fun! change it! be goofy! it’s july!

      (i will but away my exclamation point now.)

  14. Making up cool names for my playlists is one of my favorite things to do!

    My exercise playlist is “high octane”
    My depressing music playlist is “daemons”
    Happy music is “I am in a good mood lately”
    Music I would like at my funeral is “if I should die before I wake”
    Pissed-off music is “the mean reds” and after the election I made “fuck GWB (and the system he rode in on)”
    For fun I also make lists of songs that pertain to “weather relevant” and “maledictions”
    Love songs are “best lurve songs EVAH” and steamy love songs are “wink”
    The anti-suicide playlist is “hey don’t do it”

    I love playlists.

    I love Gretchen’s CD, “Here for the Party.” I bought the delux DVD edition, and it’s just awesome. I especially love the last track, “Pocahontas Proud.” I come from a small town, Lititz, right by you, and I’d love to be the big thing from here.
