What's on your iPod?
This is a common question for celebrities these days: What’s on your iPod?
Described in the book Steve Jobs, Jobs handed his iPod to Walter Isaacson, biographer, who found among other things the complete catalog of Bob Dylan’s works through 1989 including several bootleg albums.
My iPod has five playlists: Jazz, Country, Singers (Sinatra, Mathis, Bennett, etc.), Beatles, and Not The Beatles. Each, other than the Beatles playlist, features a variety of artists, but I’m pretty heavy on Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rolling Stones, CCR, ZZ Top and U2.
My office computer, on the other hand, has one music CD that was compiled by my youngest daughter, Gayle, and given to me on Father’s Day. I play it often because she spent a great deal of time selecting the pieces just for me.
Hero – Mariah Carey
Because You Love Me – Celine Dion
Daddy – Beyonce
I’ll Always Be Your Baby – Natalie Grant
I Need You – LeAnn Rimes
Wind Beneath My Wings – Bette Midler
If a photo is worth a thousand words, these songs are worth a million.
