Musical Choices

Ever since my husband installed iTunes on our computer several years ago, I've listened to way more music than I had I the past. It's so easy to turn on the tunes while checking out everybody's latest blog entries. What seemed so revolutionary at the time, being able to buy just one song at a a time, is commonplace today. I love it because if I hear a song on the radio that I fall in love with, it is just 99 cents away from being in my iTunes.

Due to strict budgeting, my music purchases have pretty much come to a standstill. But for my birthday my father-in-law got me a gift card to iTunes. I am very excited. I have already bought five songs, leaving me 10 more to choose. Here's the dilemma: I have more songs in my "shopping cart" than $10 worth. I have to pick and choose. It's hard. Do I pick one of my new favorites, like Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours" or do I pick Rosemary Clooney's "Sisters"? (Answer, I picked them both.) But I am finding I'd love a Phil Collins album. If I buy a whole album of his, then I can't get anything else. Decisions, decisions.

What a great gift! I've hardly bought any music in about 6 years. My collection is quite ancient.

I would just pick and choose. Chances are not every song on the Phil Collins album will be great. Although, I do love Phil... Just pick your favs.

I love iTunes also. I got a docking station for my Ipod for Christmas and I am loving playing my music while I am cooking or cleaning!

Thanks for your thoughtful comment. I am fine, just have been busy. I posted today though!
