My Car Thinks I'm a Rock Star

That's right. I dance in my car. I rock out in my car. And occasionally I do get sideways glances from passersby. I was really jamming a couple months ago and spotted a couple laughing and pointing. I gave them the thumbs-up and tossed my hair around. It's important to be gracious to your fans, after all.

I match my underwear to my mood and sadly haven't been in the mood recently to wear my lacey flirty fun ones. It's almost like I decide in the morning how I want to feel the rest of the day, and that's how I pick between the sporty boy shorts and the sexy black cheekies.

But some moods require something stronger than knowing your ass looks hot in the lace you're wearing. I match my music to my mood too and have definitely been kicking it to flirty fun tunes of late. Something's gotta pep me up and liven me a bit, and music's been helping. What's better therapy than rock and roll?

I thought I'd share with you some favorites from my iPod, and maybe you'd find a new band that you like:

  • The New Pornographers
  • The Stills
  • The Gossip
  • The Rolling Stones
  • The Ting Tings (what is it about band names? is there a rule they all have to start with the?)
  • Yeah Yeah Yeahs
  • Janis Joplin (still kicking ass almost 40 years after her death - say no to drugs, kids!)
  • Electrocute
  • Paramore
  • Estelle (not rock but still flirty and peppy)
  • Lady GaGa (also not rock but totally flirty and fun)
  • Tilly and the Wall
  • Brendon Benson
  • Louis XIV
  • Bain Mattox (based in Athens, GA - check him out!!)
  • Garbage
As you can tell, I really dig rock bands with chicks. I'm a rocker chick, they're rocker chicks - it just makes sense. Or anyway, that's what I am in one of my many fantasy lives. And what does music offer but a way out of real life and into a fantasy world?

I imagine myself with pink streaks in my hair (done it), tight black leather pants (does vinyl count?), hot stilettos (closet is full of them) and a sexy top with a push-up bra (check, check!). If I have the costume, I can live the dream, right? I'm at least one step closer. Sometimes it helps to be somebody else for awhile.

I recently started getting into Lady Gaga's music all thanks to 5 Kids from Boston! I can't wait to see her perform live with the guys next week! :)

Ok, the music on your iPod is more eclectic than mine!

Me too! I totally rock out in my car. Sometimes when I'm listening to really ghetto booty remixes I start breakin out with a ghetto booty dance move in the car that makes me look like I'm grinding my car seat.
I'm awesome...well prob more embarrassed than anything lol.

You forgot Bob Schneider...

Now don't get me wrong, I like Bob Schneider. I just wouldn't categorize him as rock and roll. (I hope "Anonymous" isn't Bob Schneider...)

LSP - I had no idea Lady GaGa was pals with NKOTB but just looked her up on iTunes and saw she sings a few songs with them. Hope she's not dating Jon!

Ringleader - I love that you grind your car seat. Love.

Bob Schneider is not rock and roll? Rock and roll is a lifestyle, not a genre, therefore I say Bob Schneider is more rock and roll than your entire list combined.
