True Genius

I truly feel sorry for the Genius setting on my iPod. It has to figure out my taste in music and recommend things I would like. That’s no easy feat! The poor thing probably thinks I have multiple personalities.

What the heck is the connection between “Ode to Joy” by Beethoven and “Mmm Bop” by Hanson, my thirteen/fourteen-year-old music obsession.

Then we have U2 and Louie Armstrong, the Beatles and Creed, a Christian band from probably fifteen years ago. “He” truly is a genius!

I probably have 200 songs on my iPod. As I scroll the “Purchased” list and wonder whether I’ve subconsciously purchased them or not, I realize albums have special meaning to me on an emotional level. Take “Ode to Joy:” Joy is what I feel every single day! Joy that I AM ME!

So I guess Apple can have a Genius, but he isn’t one in human emotion, but the songs I truly love, I picked.
