I listen to music ALL the time. In my car on my commute to work, all day long while sitting at my computer, on my iPhone while running.
Pretty much, all the livelong day.
With a few exceptions, my musical tastes aren’t great. Typically I like trashy pop music that makes me want to dance around like a fool. Usually while sitting in traffic and avoiding the stares of the person in the vehicle next to me.
The last few days, I’ve been revisiting the Rent soundtrack and singing along at the top of my lungs. From this I’ve learned two things: I still know almost every single word to the entire soundtrack; and it is impossible for me to get through the end of Act 2 without crying off my makeup.
Recently, while bopping along to my “Kitchen Jams” mix while making dinner, one of my favorites came on: Hey, Julie by Fountains of Wayne.
I immediately remembered the first time I heard the song. I was watching Scrubs (one of the best shows ever and the reason that my kid has the initials J.D.) and Mandy Moore was guest staring as Julie. She was a little dorky, kind of clumsy, enthralled by wizards and RODE A SCOOTER. So yeah, my husband immediately pointed and laughed at me.
You can check her out in all her dorkiness here:
Now that I have remembered how much I like this song and realized that I need to start adding Scrubs back to my Tivo… I’m curious about you. Is there a song with your name in it? Leave me a comment below and feel free to include a link to the song too!
