Life of a Fire Wife

What’s On Your iPod?

Last week I was asked what kind of music like to listen to.  That’s a good question. I don’t know.  And if you looked at my iPod you wouldn’t know either.

I DO know, however, WHY I was asked that question.  Sometimes people just need to “put you in a box.”  People like to classify you. Compartmentalize their lives.   So how would you classify me?

Here’s what’s in my iPod…..


Tschaivosky, Beethoven, Mahler, Schubert, Mendelssohn….I love baroque.  I am a flutist.  I’m an oboist.  This would lead you to believe that I would probably like classical music, and you would be correct.


I have Motley Crue, Metallica, Van Halen and Queen in my playlists.  I am a child of the 80’s.   This would also be correct.


I like John Denver.  I’m a bit of a naturalist.


I love movie soundtracks – especially those composed by John Williams.  (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, ET, etc.)  Movie fan???  Hmmmmm…..


I also like Nightwish because of the full orchestra in the background.  (My older kids tell me it’s Goth Metal. )  Where in the heck is the box for THAT???


I like “classics” too.  Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman, BIG bands.  I’m mature, perhaps?


Then there are my more eclectic choices.  The Cranberries, Enya, Rod Stewart, Sheryl Crow, Ozzie, Chris LeDoux, Simon & Garfunkle, Slayer, Slipknot, Lita Ford, Stray Cats…..


You get the idea, right?



I don’t think there’s a box for me.  And I don’t think I mind.
