This song totally makes me want to pull out my bobo sneakers and plaid pants

I dig me some music. When I was in high school, I was a music snob. Heaven help the sorry-sap that tried to sell me on the musical qualities of Hair Bands and Power Ballads. I wasn’t buying it.

Now, I am game for listening to most any type of music. Call me a grown up, but I think my taste in music has expanded and grown, just like my food choices. Along with learning to love broccoli and green peppers, I’ve learned to appreciate tunes outside of my usual tastes. And I can usually be found with some sort of music player pumping out some tunes. (Amazingly, I do not have an iPod. I think I may be one of the only people in America who can claim that. I don’t even have a cheap mp3 player. So, I’m gonna keep trying these not-so subliminal messages: HELLO! APPLE! ~ I’d happily review an iPhone or iPod for you. Heaven knows you need all the help you can get at getting those things moved out of stores)

This is my current musical addiction right now and it’s on heavy rotation on that record player in my head too:

Woken Awoken The opposite of sleeping during the night from an earthquake: RUN! Making lunch: RUN! Blogging: RUN!

Listen to other Gnarls Barkley songs at their MySpace page. But be prepared to have the urge to pull out all sorts of 60s retro clothing.

What song is on heavy rotation in your head these days?

    Wha? What did you say? No hair bands? No power ballads? Blasphemy!

    I also have to be counted among those with no MP3 player. I feel like a freak sometimes…but I was also a very late hold out for cell phones (now don’t even have a land line).

    I am WAAAAYYYYY too much of a musical dork to even comment on this post! (I heart Air Supply)

    It’s a well known affliction amongst my friends, but I just like to consider myself “Well-rounded”.

    I love many kinds of music too, though not a fan of instrumentals (it has to have some sort of lyrics). I have to admit I was and still am a fan of the hair bands. This morning, I actually listened to Hair Nation on Sirius Radio all the way to work!

    The song that I find myself singing, all the time, is Hometown Glory by Adele. I absolutely love this song!

    And I was all about the power ballads even in high school.

    This video made me laugh. Did we really wear that stuff?

    Song running through my head? Hmmm, there’s that song “Somebody Save Me” that’s the theme song for Smallville, I’ve been playing Madissa’s CD a lot lately and Salvador always gets lots of play time with me.

    I honestly thought “Bobo sneakers” was my own made-up name for those shoes ;)

    Right now I have a kids’ worship song from our church running through my head:
    Jump up and shout. Hey!
    He’s my Hero!
    Stand up and shout. Hey!

    BTW, no mp3 here either.

    Well written, thank you for this writeup. I believe there are more information on subliminal cds at

    Hmmm. I’m a bit curious how you could not be into hair bands, but hey, it’s all good. I’m thinking I really like “Lose my breath” by Destiny’s Child is pretty good….

    it’s a sad state of affairs when the song in my head is “You can’t stop the beat” from Hairspray.

    That being said, this song rocks. And I love me some B-52’s. Love love love it!
