You will probably never meet two people as disinterested in music as Ben and me. I'm totally content to listen to the same music over and over again.
Several weeks ago, Ben got into the car and realized I've been listening to the same two CDs for the past four months. Never mind the fact that the CD player in the car can hold 6 CDs. Never mind the fact that I actually do own more than 2 CDs. I simply can't help myself. Ingrid Michaelson, how I love you. I just keep listening to those same 12 songs over and over again. And, our wedding music CD. Over and over and over and over again.
"You may need new music." Ben said. I guess listening to two CDs for four months is excessive. But I really can't help myself. If I'm in a happy mood, the wedding music CD takes me right back to that blissful December day. If I'm in a despairing mood, all of Ingrid Michaelson's music is so dark....it makes me happy (morbid, I know).
All that to say, I'm on the search for new music. For Ben's sake, of course. I sincerely don't want him to go crazy as I jam out to Ingrid for another four months. So, I'm thinking of Katie Herzig, Rosie Thomas, and Lady Antebellum, just to name a few. For variety, for a change. I think it is needed.
