I really don’t like the band, but the song is pretty steady.
Unfortunately my PC broke down about a month ago and I haven't been able to rip any of my brother's new CDs. I have nothing really new to listen to but whatever is still chunked into my barely-working iPod mini. It has about less than 2 hours of batt life – so I don’t usually do my usual exercise for more than 2 hours. I no longer have that luxury of mobile sound-tripping and I am stuck with whatever soundtrack my surroundings provide me. There are 2:
I have been working night shift for the last three months. No one is really around at these ungodly hours except for a number of other officemates and contractors that I can usually still count with my fingers. The nice thing about working in a less densely populated office is that you can make all the noise you want except during conference calls. And our team’s contractor takes advantage of this. To put it frankly, he is quite old and so is his taste in music. His playlist consists of sappy love songs that you usually hear from the Radio Romance station (yes, back in high school, my barkada sings along these songs when we hang out). Being more specific, the songs like Sad to Belong, I’d Really Love to See You Tonight and How Deep is Your Love are some examples. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice to listen to these things once in a while – but if your playlist consists of these, and only these and only 25 tracks of this genre and you loop it for four f***ing hours – you have got some serious issues my friend. Correct me here, but there is this unwritten law that when someone plays music on his/her speakers, you can’t play anything loud too – and if you want to listen to your music, you would have to bring your earphones. And at that luckiest time of my life, I lost my earphones.
Conveniently, an Elorde boxing gym opened just outside my village. So I tried it out, not really to get fit, but rather to tire myself out since I was having problems falling asleep when I get home in the mornings – probably because I get an LSS on senti songs or something. Boxing in the morning is much better than at night or in the afternoon mainly because there are less people. It is such a hassle to deal with those people who hog the speed ball or something. Anyway, there is usually this couple who boxes in the mornings. And the guy always asks the trainer to bring out a specific CD – yep, this chump has got a workout soundtrack. His playlist starts of with Smoke on the Water, Van Halen’s Jump, and the unforgettable Eye of the Tiger, and after that is a Metallica collection. How can you not get into a boxing mood without Eye of the Tiger? But every morning that I go boxing, He listens to the same damn CD. Once, his wife (or partner – I noticed that their last names are different in the log book) placed a 311/chillout CD before they did their stretching. But when he started boxing he just had to have his Rocky background music.
You can do me a favor and burn me a copy of your own soundtrack of your (about) 50 favorite songs. Since I have nothing new to listen to, I want to know your music (-- yes even you, who made me listen to Orson’s version of the Sugababes’ Push the Button). The catch? Well, you will have your own playlist in my iTunes and a special place in my heart. Hahaha!
Fine, I’ll treat you out to fastfood lunch.
