So I can’t help but wonder…when you’re picking up two recording artists, each with their own albums, one with some AAA radio play, both of whom have been (and currently are) touring with a jazz great and shuttling them across town for a live, acoustic session and interview (as a favor to the hubs who will be recording said sessions), what kind of music do you have playing in the car during the ride to and from?
Her album? I can sing along to it since I actually like it (though I wouldn’t be stupid enough to do that). His album, though it’s all jazz & African guitar instrumental? One of Herbie’s albums? Though truth be told, I personally only own Possibilities (though the hubs I believe has a copy of everything). The Sex & the City album since that’s what I’ve been grooving to lately or maybe some country? Or how about my mixed Road Trippin’ disks which are mostly filled with 80’s music – I have 12 disks worth (hey, LA to Vegas and back is one long ride, don’t judge). Or maybe some talk radio or NPR?
What’s a gal to do? Well, I guess for starters I should go wash the car. It’s so bad the hubs even made sure to remind me as he was leaving this morning (while I was on a work call – so it’s important). I’m certainly open to suggestions though, so feel free to share your thoughts.
Turn on NPR? I’d just either have it be quiet or put on something you like- that way it’s a conversation starter.
sizzles last blog post..I Didn’t Mosh
That’s quite the conundrum. I’d definitely avoid either artists’ music, because chances are they hear their own music enough and have no desire to hear it any more. I’d say anything else is fair game, so long as it’s not Britney Spears. 😉
Phils last blog post..And I was like “Oh my god, are they gay?” And then I was like “I wonder if gays love musical theater.”
I ended up going with some Amos Lee since it was in the car already. I figured he’s mellow enough it would be decent background music. Funny enough, they both recognized him. Considering it was an advanced copy of his upcoming album, I guess it was a good choice.
And Phil, don’t worry, there is NO Britney Spears in my car – even back in the day when the nieces were fans!
