Songs You Forgot You Had On Your iPod
Ok first things first, I am having something for breakfast that I havent had in forever!
But not just any smoothie… a banana-coffee smoothie. I used to have these things all the time in the morning.
In the mix:
- 2 scoop Visalus mix (my “protein powder” of choice)
- 7 ice cubes
- a whole (small) frozen banana
- 1/2 cup coffee (hot or cold, doesnt matter)
- 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
- a few dashes of cinnamon
And since it was on the smaller side (as opposed to my giant smoothies) I had some whole grain waffles with strawberry jelly alongside of it.
Which, in all honestly I was really full after all of that, I think one waffle will do next time.
So let me tell you about training last night. The training was great as always… but the music is what got me.
I was cracking up/jamming out. It was like the nostalgic mix that I felt like he handpicked from my childhood. Or like the songs you have on your iPod that you completely forgot about….
First was Tootsee Roll. You remember that song dont ya? If not… listen here. My favorite is at the beginning when they say “yeaaaaah 1994!” ha!
And then some Alice Cooper.
Scary I know. I know this is more of an 80’s thing, but I blame my awesome rocker sisters brainwashing me when I was a baby with this stuff.
And then Genie In A Bottle.
And then… the holy grail of my childhood.
Dont act like you never had any of their songs stuck in your head! Candyman came on last night and I almost died. It was like insta-flashbacks to 5th grade. Awesome.
Oh, and “Tubthumping (I get knocked down)” by Chumbawamba. Yeah, you forgot about that one huh?
I may have also gotten all 12-year-old-girl giddy when Bon Jovi’s “Livin on a Prayer” came on. I always feel the need to yell-sing that song…. when I am by myself of course.
And I may have also went home and put together a playlist on my iPod that included all these songs and called it “Memories”
And yes, I already own all those songs and didn’t even have to download any of them. Sad? Maybe.
Okay, okay sorry, I know I have been reminiscing a lot lately, but it’s kind of fun. Have a good day!
- Time to fess up: some of your childhood band/song obsessions?
Along with the above I had a weird obsession with Queen. And also I went through a phase where I loved Shaggy.
- Do you have a favorite genre of music? (rock, pop, etc)
Rock. Especially old/classic rock. I blame my father.
- What’s for dinner tonight (or what was for dinner if you are reading this later tonight)?
