Welcome to December… What am I Listening to Now?

Published December 1, 2009 - 0 Comments

This is the last look at my playlist until I add the dreaded “Christmas” playlist into the mix.  I’ll be curious to see in another month’s time whether Snoop and the Red Baron and a few more of the festive classics make it onto the list.  I’m pretty sure that I listen to Snoopy quite often during the holidays.  I can still remember being a kid and calling the radio station to request they play that song.  It’s probably one of the first, and most played, Christmas songs on the radio.

Looking at the Top 25 of November, it has a different feel to it than the previous months.  Sitting atop the pile of great music is the new one by Default, called Little Too Late.  I don’t know a thing about this band.  I wasn’t even aware that they’re Canadian (from Vancouver, apparently) until I was told by someone who knows more about them than I do.  I couldn’t name a single song that they’ve released prior to this, but when I heard this song featured on E Talk Top 20 as a “future hit” I loved it.

Drop it Low was definitely a surprise.  I have no idea who Ester Dean is, even now.  I heard it on American Top 20, and apparently have been listening to it steadily ever since.

Tik Tok?  Where do these people learn to spell?  Well, when you spell your name Ke$ha, I guess that proper grammar isn’t high on your list of priorities.  It IS a catchy tune, though.  When I got my new Skull Candy headphones a couple of weeks ago, I think this was the first song that I played in them.  Sounds pretty good turned up loud.

Looking down through the list, I see several other new songs that made it there.  This was a month of change.  Throw Ya Hands Up, Bad Romance, Yeah!, Meet Me Halfway, and Someday also jumped onto the list from nowhere.

Then there’s I Can Wait Forever, by Simple Plan.  I went on a little Simple Plan bender earlier in the month.  Save You and Untitled are there too… but it’s really I Can Wait Forever that caught my attention.  I don’t know if the song was even released.  I like discovering some of the new music that I have is actually worth listening to.  It’s a shame that I had to stumble onto it like that, though.  And no, it’s not like that.

So all in all, it was a different month of music on the ole iPod extraordinaire.  Yeah, there are some of the usual favourites that don’t seem to be getting old.  I think December will be the last month of looking at these.  I’ll be curious to see how the Christmas music factors into everything, but in 2010, I think I’ll just let it run for a bit and see what happens.
