Post of a sleep deprived mind or why I think my MP3 player loves me

Ok erratic post from work. Erratic because well I'm at work, I'm tired and my brain is essentially at "remember to breathe mode". I just didn't want to leave my blog at my early morning rant. I swear I'm not always as doubt filled and pissed off as I've shown so far. These things just seem to lump together. Snowball effect I guess.

Anywho, this was something I wanted to write about. I might be doing it a disservice by having it as a work post, but eh, it'll help distract my mind.

***********

After that long intro, I swear there's a connection with the post. Now usually whenever I feel down, my mp3 player seems to realize it and actually plays music appropriate to the situation. Sometimes it takes a song or two for it to judge my mood, but once it's figured it out, it plays a long string of songs that help me out. This morning it was on the ball right away. After worrying (for mostly no good reason) the first song that cam on was Ain't Nothing Wrong With That by Robert Randolph. Specifically by the end where the song goes:


Ain't nothin' wrong with that

It don't matter
It don't matter
(Let it go)
It don't matter
(Let it go)
It don't matter
(Let it go)
It don't matter
(Let it go)

I would link to youtube, but work oh so graciously blocks it. Maybe when I get home.
After that it strung together some upbeat songs to try to lift my spirits. Now I have no special playlist. I just load up my MP3s and the thing is on random. Oh and in the middle of all that upbeat music, what does it play? Lean On Me. Now that's friendship!

This isn't the first case of it playing what I need to hear either. When I'm in absolutely no mood for upbeat, it'll stick with the sadder songs I have. Oh and it eerily plays Eye of the Tiger whenever I need to get pumped up.  

Anyone else find this happens to them or is it another check in the long list of Bo Bo is crazy list?

My ipod doesn't read my mind, but it does play my Jim Nabors Christmas album a bunch. Who's crazy now ;) ?
