Thursday 13- More iPod Confessions

If you check out my posts here and here, you will see previous iPod confessions (or "songs my friends won't believe I have on my iPod"). I thought it was about time to list some more for my Thursday 13. For those new to my blog, I would say the majority of my songs are country (what can I say, I'm a country girl, well, at least when it comes to music). :) If you want to hear the song, click on the name.

1. Jeremy by Pearl Jam
My friend Zach loved (and I mean loved) Pearl Jam, so when we were in high school, I listened to a lot  of them whenever we hung out. I didn't realize until recently this song was based on a real guy named Jeremy. Go here for that story. It's a dark song, so please click on the video with caution. It's not "kid approved".

2. Why Can't I by Liz Phair
I don't know why I like this song, but I do.

3. Ain't No Rest For the Wicked by Cage the Elephant
I heard this song when I was out somewhere and I used my Shazam app to tag it so I could look it up later. It's weird, but I like it, it has an interesting beat.

4. Dancing Queen by ABBA
How can you not dance around to this song?

5. Love Shack by The B52s
You know you want to sing along!

6. Fight For Your Right by The Beastie Boys
So, I was about 8 when this song came out. There was a college student who would watch the kids during choir practice after Sunday night church. She used to play Beastie Boys music for us . Yeah, not really "church music" is it? :)

7. Buddy Holly by Weezer
This song takes me back to high school. I was on the newspaper staff and there was a guy who was a huge Weezer fan and was always playing their CD in the newspaper office. This was one of my favorites!

8. Do That To Me One More Time by Captain and Tennille
What? I can't like a little Captain and Tennille? 

9. I Know by Drake Bell
I heard this song for the first time last week. I had never heard of this kid before (okay, he's like 24, but sadly that is a kid to me). I can't explain it, but I like his voice. After a search on Google it seems he was on a Nickelodeon show like 5 years ago (I had never heard of it- but Nick sure has changed since I watched it!) I'm almost embarrassed to have it listed, I'm way too old to be listening to "teen pop" music, but he has a good voice! I won't make any comments on how his hair in this video drives me bonkers. PUSH IT OUT OF YOUR FACE! Oh, sorry! 

10. Bubbly by Colbie Caillat
This is a song that gets stuck in my head a lot! :)

11. Material Girl by Madonna
How could I be a child of the 80s and not have Madonna on my iPod?

12. Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond
My BFF Brandy and I were singing along to this song one time at a Rangers game and the guy in front of us said we were too young to know this song. How can you NOT know this song??

13. According to You by Orianthi
If I were to dance around singing into a hairbrush, it would be to this song. Again, I said IF. :)

It's Thirsty Thursday, make a new friend, go check out For the Love of Blogs



  1. Love Sweet Caroline!!! They play it all the time at UNC games. :)

    And, I gotta say that I've never heard of most of these songs... Lol

  2. I would most def sing "According To You" in my hair brush!!! :-)

  3. I love "Bubbly"! :) One of my favs.

    And do you know what's worse than you confessing a Drake Bell song on your ipod? My confession that I actually, quite regularly, watch "Drake & Josh" on Teen Nick where it runs in syndication. I love that other favorite Nickelodeon show is "Ned's Declassified". Explains a lot, huh? ;)

  4. I can't resist the beastie boys- I get pumped up every time I hear "check it out."

  5. Love your play list! Cracks me up and puts a smile on my face, and songs in my head. Thanks Rach! Have a good one ♥ BJ

  6. How fun! You missed your calling, Rachel :-)

    By the way, I think I've got the Google Analytics thing figured out. We'll see.

  7. you have so much good going on here hun! i have no idea why i can't hear anything on my sound...volume is all the way up but i'll have B look into that....i think i mess it up when i download stuff...i'm in trouble! haha hope all is well you pretty lady you! xoxo

  8. 2,7,12 and 13- you have great taste, my friend:-)

  9. Great list, there are a number of my favorites on there as well. Sweet Caroline, Dancing Queen, Love Shack... Bubbly too, definitely. A few I will need to check out... never been a Beastie Boy fan, and haven't heard that Weezer song and haven't even heard of Orianthi... need to stay current, obviously.

    Have a great weekend!
