Just out of curiosity do any of you HAVE to have an iPod when you run or workout? I am like Pavlov's dog and cannot run without my iPod. I'm conditioned to run faster and farther with music. Most likely it's all in my head but I just find it easier to run while rocking the f out. So I thought I'd share with you my current top 10 running songs:
1.) Everything I Own (Vanessa Hudgens from the movie Bandslam)
2.) Born This Way (Lady Gaga.....duh)
3.) More (Usher)
4.) P.I.M.P (50 Cent)
5.) Waka Waka (Shakira)
6.) The Distance (Cake)
7.) Don't Stop Me Now (Queen)
8.) Dirt Off Your Shoulder (Jay-Z)
9.) Freak The Freak Out (Victoria Justice)
10.) Sugar In Your Gas Tank (Less Than Jake)
You are right now either 1.) Laughing 2.) Staring blankly at your monitor or C.) Breathing a sigh of relief that someone else listens to extremely random music like you. Trust me the rest of the playlist is just as crazy. Anyway on to a story that never dies and ties into my random love of gangster rap.
Once upon a time when I was just a college junior who had not a care in the world, would drive around windows down singing loud and proud inviting everyone in cars around me to soak up my awesomeness. So one warm July day, I've got my windows down and I'm rapping my little Caucasian girl heart out when I stop at a red light. Now what I'm about to tell you is key: I was rapping Kanye West's "Gold Digger". Yeah Kanye. West. Gold. Digger. So here I am rapping in my car thinking I'm a baller when I look out my window and see this attractive African American guy laugh his ass off. At me. Not just at me but at me rapping. I would've given anything for non power windows that day because I promise you I would've had them cranked up in 5 seconds. I have never been so mortified in my life. This picture accurately describes how I felt:
(Holllaaaaa if you're a Wangsta like me)
And that friends is why I now never ever ever ever sing with my windows rolled down. I don't care if it's freaking something people would expect me to be singing in my car like, Jewel or Sarah McClaughlin (which might actually be just as embarrassing.....) the windows stay up. Anyone else have an embarrassing car singing story????
