Music to my ears

You know that movie, "Ground Hog Day" with Bill Murray, and how he wakes up to the same Sonny & Cher song " I got you babe" every morning?

Imagine hearing the same 3-5 CD's every single work day for the past 5 years.

That's my current situation.

CD's/Songs I hear on a pretty-much-daily-basis:

Norah Jones (the old stuff)
Shania Twain "Come on Over CD"
Rod Stewart " Greatest Hits"
The Carpenters volumes 1, 11 and 111 including CHRISTMAS hits!
Nat King Cole
Iz (the Hawaiian guy)
Lionel Richie
Grammy Winners 1995 (yes, 1995!!!!)

I know each song word for word, whether I like it or not. We have no radio, just a 5 disc changer, and 7 discs to choose from.

Like I said, totally Ground Hog day.

Today my world changed. I swiped NZ's transistor radio and took it in the office. My co-worker and I turned it on verrrrry low ( Today was not a clinic day-therefore no patient's in the office, just administrative stuff) and listened to gasp! THE RADIO.

It was beautiful, glorious, wonderful music. And the DJ's, they talked, and we got to listen to what was going on in our area all day long. Today's music selection ( Thanks K-HAY) was literally music to my ears.

This won't be a common occurence, but it sure was a nice break from the same old stuff day after day.

  1. Today I listened to the radio at work too! Well, I cheated and worked from home, but usually I don't do radio while working either. I just turned it on b/c on of our friends just got a job working for 92.3 (San Jose's alternative station), so I listened to the radio while Derek was on the air. It was a nice change! It made me feel not lonely while I worked =)
