Before I begin, the point of this post is not to offend anyone. I am just stating my personal preferences, in a humorous way, and how I have a very large aversion to pop music. That is all.
I guess you can say this story all began when I was nursing the mother of all migraines all weekend long. The migraine kept coming back with a vengeance and it was a real nasty one. I am feeling somewhat better today so I decided to come to work instead of taking a day off. I did not overexert myself or anything so it was nice calming day. Another bonus, the phones were quiet too.
Right before lunch, I got hit by a wave of nausea and some slight head pain. I was able to drive so I decided to head out to the closest store (Walmart) for some Ginger-ale and fruit. I figured the fresh, crisp winter air might also help and make me feel better.
I was not hungry but decided a fruit smoothie and some fruit would be good for me. I did not eat breakfast due the nausea and I did not want to go all day without something in my stomach (which I think was causing my headache). I browsed a couple of aisles and picked up a few random things we need for the house as well.
Now keep in mind, my personal music preferences. I cannot tolerate pop, rap,country or hip hop music. The majority of my tastes range from (Trad goth, EBM/Darkwave - yes I like the Oontz Oontz music!, New Wave, Industrial, Classical, Punk, Metal, Classic Rock, Celtic) so listening to pop music is not something I would do. Ever.
There are times, where I do not have a choice and am stuck listening to cheesy pop music like in a store (no headphones) or at the doctor's office. Today was one of them. The Backstreet Boys came on while I was shopping and I actually caught myself singing a long with them. I was so amused by this that I even put up a silly Facebook status telling people to spray me with holy water! The lyrics are pretty repetitive so I was not surprised I knew them, but still, I must of been more sick than I originally thought I was to sing to that kind of crap! I blared my music in my car on the way back to work so I can free myself from the taint of the Pop Music Scourge.
The verdict, no I am not a fan. No I will not listen to it again unless I was forced too. The last time I enjoyed pop music, I was 11 years old and totally tripped out over The New Kids On The Block. I had all the dolls, the tapes, the frigging bedsheets, posters, you name it!I was a huge fan-girl. Now let's not ever talk about this again!
All afternoon, I listened to my music at my desk (I love where I work, not many places allow the receptionist to do this!) because I got that blasted song in my head. My dark little gothic soul needed saving.
So there you have it, Darklings. Today, I lost some major goth cred. The secret Goth Cabal is going to come and revoke my membership card now! Thanks again Jillian Venters for that term!
I think the best thing I can write here is "I don't care who you are or where you're from. As long as you love me!" Hahaha!!!!
Now if you'll excuse me I have some Bauhaus to listen to
