100 Songs. Because iTunes is On Shuffle and Repeat

By in

It’s no secret: I love music.  If you’re gonna build a small reputation as a lyrics translator, you have to have a good ear for music.  No matter how bad that music is, or no matter how antithetical that music may be to your appearance or preferences.

I have no time for these self-serving brouhaha where you wear some band’s shirt, or sweep your hair in such a way to imitate a band member, and you have nothing but their songs in their list.  It’s not like I listen to Metallica or Black Sabbath all day; I also have a few songs of Hanson, and one of my favorite songs in, like, ever is “Drowned World/Substitute For Love” by Madonna.  It doesn’t make me any less of a rockstar, because I never claimed to be one.

Besides, for someone who translates songs by Aegis and Teresa Teng in the same breath, I have to have a broad scope and appreciation of all types of music.  Even if I have more than two songs of Roselle Nava and Donna Cruz hanging around.

So thanks to Baddieverse, Ade, and even MLQ3, I decided to put up my own 100 songs list.  Simply because iTunes is on shuffle and on repeat.
