iPod Day—What's in Odenton and Severn's Playlist?
Eleven years ago today, the Apple iPod was introduced. If Odenton had a playlist, what would it contain?
Did you know that Oct. 23 was iPod day?
Apparently, Apple introduced the first iPod music device on that day in 2001. And now millions of Americans use the device to listen to their music each day.
We all have favorite playlists. Mine contains an unhealthy amount of pop music from the 1980s, plus some kids songs mixed in. (Depeche Mode and Old McDonald make for an interesting mix.)
If the town of Odenton were to create its own playlist, what would it look like? Here are a few suggestions.
The Bangles - Manic Monday — A special ode to the thousands that hop on the MARC train to Washington each morning.
Kenny Rogers - The Gambler — Whistle this one while playing the slots at Maryland Live!
Rockwell - Somebody's Watching Me — We're just a few minutes from NSA. Just sayin'.
Starship – We Built This City — OK, so we're not quite a "city" yet. But there's a lot of construction going on. Not sure if it's all being built on rock 'n' roll, though.
Pet Shop Boys - Suburbia — Our anthem as we mow our lawns and hop into our cars to drive a half-mile.
Rick James - Superfreak — We should adjust the title of the song to Superfresh. "Superfresh, Superfresh ... what will replace you?"
Anything by the band Traffic — Even Steve Winwood says we need some infrastructure improvements around here.
