The iPod Shuffle

This has absolutely nothing to do with anything, but I was talking to someone earlier this week about being embarrassed to actually like a Maroon 5 song and I thought it might be kind of interesting to put my (generic) iPod on shuffle and see what the first, I don't know, let's say 40 songs are that come up.

Keep in mind now that this sort of exercise can really only lead to you guys mocking me for my musical taste (or lack of), so it takes some guts to do it. Music is one of those things where you're bound to say you like a song that someone else thinks is complete crap. And I also fully admit to liking a wide variety of complete crap.

Also, I realize 99% of you couldn't care less, but oh well ...

Feel free to send any and all snide remarks and pithy comments to me via e-mail. In looking at the 40 songs that popped up first, it probably could have been worse. For any other bloggers out there reading this (baseball or otherwise), I challenge you to do the same thing and open yourself up to the barage of criticism and mockery that is sure to be heading my way right about now. Seriously, I double dare you. I'll link to it.
