I know that the world we live in makes brand names nouns of the non-proper variety, meaning most out there reading will realize I mean any mp3 player when I say iPod. This has been a cultural phenomenon that I have avoided until this came along. I don’t call any brand of toilet paper Charmin. When I need a tissue, I say tissue, not Kleenex. Yet, when it comes to mp3 players, I tend to always say iPod. Maybe it is lust for an actual iPod, though I truly love my Sansa Clip.
Thanks to that iconic periodical Rolling Stone, the public is now privy to what is presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama’s iPod. So the question begs to be asked, what is on your iPod or mp3 player? Do you have separate playlists?
My Sansa Clip has quite a bit of music on it. It, I have yet to be come as obsessed with my electronic items that I name them like my oldest daughter does, has two playlists on it – one called Running and one called Danforth. The Danforth is actually music that is for my soon-to-be 14 year old son as his mp3 player died after about 4 years of abuse. Until a new one is purchased for him, he is sharing mine with me.
My playlist is an odd combination of songs. Here are 20 of my favorite songs on my Clip.
