Things you may not want to be caught listening to on the street
I was standing on the escalator coming from the subway. Listening to music on my mobile. All of a sudden the music stopped and I thought I’d accidentally hit the pause or stop button on the remote. I kept walking, thinking I’d fix it when I get to the bus stop (I was in a hurry).
Suddenly I realised the music — Sexy Back by Justin Timberlake — was playing on the loudspeaker!! It took me a few fumbling moments to shut it up.
The phones should definitely refuse to play music from the loudspeaker unless it’s specifically activated by the user.
Or maybe I should just listen to less embarrassing songs…
Do you have an artist, a song, or a music style you like, which you rather keep to yourself?
I was still in the USA when I learned about Ultra Bra. I’d play their albums in my car, and sometimes would sing along. Once I was listening to Kuka haluaa?, and realized I could never sing along to it in Finland without feeling completely embarrassed, if anyone were to overhear the lyrics accidentally at traffic lights or somewhere…
Haha, yeah, I know what you mean XD! Justin Timberlake’s songs are crazy… hah
Well, being old, my daughter gets embarrassed if I’m singing along to any “young” songs. But what I’d never admit to is the fact that I sometimes listen to Celine Dion songs. It’s not that I love her songs or anything, it’s more like I love her voice – it’s so fucking amazing that someone has that power and ability to sing ON-KEY. So some nights when I’ve got the music going on my computer, I play a whole bunch of Celine Dion in a row, and then I’m done with it. My honey can’t stand her, but feels the same way about her voice.
Don’t tell any one, it’s a secret.
