Three fast facts about men and their music playlists:
1. You don’t really know a man until you’ve heard his music playlist.
2. Women generally get their mp3s from iTunes, CDs or from friends; men from The Pirate Bay.
3. You can always copy or steal a man’s playlist. But it will never be yours. The special sequence of songs makes it his own.
The list below is my reply to Julia’s awesome 2nd playlist (can I really compete with a gal who shares her family name with a famous brand of upscale loudspeakers?). She leads 1-0 in our playlist face-off. This is my revenge. Are you listening, Julia? :)
My favorites are The Maine’s “Into Your Arms” and John Mayer’s “Edge of Desire” — “Don’t say a word, just come over and lie here with me. ‘Cause I’m just about to set fire to everything I see,” is a pyromaniac’s dream yet it’s honest. But what I love the most about the song is Mayer’s deliberate and layered guitar picking all throughout. Easily one of my favorite Mayer songs.
