Yesterday I noticed my mom clipping an iPod to her shorts as she was getting ready to go for a walk. "What do you got on there?" I asked. She smiled and said, "you'd be surprised". I was intrigued. She then told me that she often finds herself pulling over to the side of the road if she hears a song she likes so she can write it down. Then she promptly goes home, listens again and purchases it on iTunes. I never would have guessed. She claimed that her playlist is totally random but she loves it ALL..."though I think I might have bought a little too much Tony Bennett" she said. We both laughed. Turns out she's got everything on there from Norah Jones to Lady Gaga to Ringo Starr. I asked her to pick a few favorites for today's Reader's Pick. "That's too hard" she said "because it really depends on my mood." Fair enough. So I asked her to pick some favorites based on her mood during yesterday's walk. Here's what she gave me. I'm guessing she was in a good mood. Thanks for sharing, Mom!
