Top 25 Song Challenge
As people have probably gathered by now, I have a music obsession. I’m always listening to variety of music. From punk rock to singer songwriter to folk. Now I work with a guy (Ryan) who has 25 solid songs for all occasions. Which means his playlist of 25 songs is the same for working out, road tripping, setting the mood or any other situation that comes up. Personally I have a hard time choosing 25 artists that I like to listen to. I have 5 different playlists for snowboarding, I make new ones for road trips, and then I have albums I like to listen to shuffle when I am in different moods.
I have decided to try and put together a 25 list and try to listen to that top 25 list for a couple days straight. I don’t think I will be able to last that long, but it’s worth a try. I’m curious if other people believe in the 1 playlist to rule them all mentality and I would love to see other peoples top 25 list. This whole exercise reminds me of an episode from The Office.
Quote from The Office episode Fire
Meredith: Legends of the Fall, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Legally Blond, Bridges of Madison County…
Pam: Legends of the Fall?
Jim: Wow. Bridges of Madison County, Legally Blond, these movies are just… .
Pam: Well, I kind of liked Legal…
Jim: Wait, wait, wait. Pam. No. Do you understand? The… the game is Desert Island Movies, not guilty pleasure movies. Desert Island Movies are the movies you’re going to watch for the rest of your life! Forever! Unforgivable.
Pam: I take it back.
Pam: I take it back!
