10 Songs You Might Be Surprised To Find On My I-Pod

I freely admit that when it comes to music, I am, for the most part, an Old Geezer.  Much of what is on my I-Pod (and yes, mine looks exactly like the one pictured!) would not surprise those of you who know me.  There is lots of classic rock, lots of 1985-2007 Contemporary Christian Music, lots of 1970's folk/rock (think James Taylor, Jim Croce, America and Dan Fogelberg), some modern worship music and plenty of Beach Boys, Jimmy Buffett and Beatles.  However, one of the leftover habits from all my years as a youth pastor is trying to keep up with new music.  Artists like P!nk, Safety Suit, Of Monsters and Men and 30 Seconds to Mars pop up anytime I hit shuffle.  There are a few songs and artists on my playlist that might make you do an audio double take, and so as a service to you- my faithful readers- today I offer up 10 tunes that you might be surprised to know that I love.  There is even a country song! There is NO hip hop or rap. I do have standards.  In no particular order, here we go...

  1. Everybody Talks- Neon Trees
  2. Runaways-  The Killers  (In fact, I have a ton of The Killers on my play list right now.)
  3. She's So Mean-  Matchbox Twenty  (I LOVE this song!)
  4. Some Nights- Fun. 
  5. Keep Me In Mind- Zac Brown Band  (I know it is country. But I have my reasons...)
  6. Bulletproof Heart-  My Chemical Romance  (My son Will has me hooked on My Chem.)
  7. I Will Wait- Mumford & Sons  (Probably not a surprise that I love these guys, but this new single blows me away!)
  8. Kicks- Paul Revere and the Raiders  (One old school surprise. Very old school...)
  9. (If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To- Weezer
  10. California- Delta Spirit (You may not know this one, but it is one seriously amazing song.)
So there it is.  Maybe later I will list the least surprising songs on my playlist,  But until then, let me know which of these messes with your mind the most. And I 'd love to know what you listen to that might surprise me.  Have a blessed day!
