When I’m listening to my iPod it is usually on the shuffle setting. This isn’t the case for everyone, but I’m guessing that most people make use of it. As much as I like most of the music I have loaded on there, either because I’m not in the mood to hear whatever comes up, or because I have way too f*cking much Jay Z on that thing. However, there exists a small selection of songs I can name off of the top of my head that I NEVER (all caps Snyder style) skip over. They aren’t necessarily my all-time favorites, they’re just the songs I’m never not in the mood to hear. I figure I’m not alone on this either.
This week we are going to draft these songs. But don’t lie. I’m sure you’re not the only one whose finger freezes anytime the opening notes of Come Sail Away start coming out of the speakers or buds. My first pick is If You Want Me to Stay by Sly and the Family Stone.
So if you ever pull up next to me and I’m grooving without the benefit of rhythm or soul, this is probably why. Make your picks in the comments.
