Virtual Girls' Night Out: The Birthday Edition

It's Friday, so that means it's time for another Virtual Girls' Night Out. My apologies in advance, all you blog hoppers, I'm going out for a girls' night out with some dear friends tonight, so I'll be checking out your blogs belatedly either late tonight or sometime tomorrow.

It's our lovely hostess Ann's birthday (well, almost, it's tomorrow), so she's throwing herself an early birthday party, with a neat birthday cocktail and Coldplay as her house party band. This week, Ann's curious who you would have play at your birthday party, if money were no object...

This one was tough for me, because I'm a total music fan. As a teenager, I'd plug in my headphones for just about every activity I enjoyed - reading, sleeping, homework, you name it. I always wanted to have a soundtrack to my activities. Now, I'm an avid iPod freak, and am constantly making new playlists. I realized that the best way to tackle this question was to look to see what's played the most on my iPod. Kind of funny.
There are only four artists that show up in my Top 25 on my iPod, and they couldn't be more random. Paramore, Linkin Park & Jay Z (one of my favorite CDs for exercising), Travis, and Jimmy Eat World. I think in a perfect world, I'd love to have like a Type-A-Mommy-palooza kind of celebration that included all of them. If I had to pick just one, though, I'm awfully torn between Paramore and Jimmy Eat World. If I could go back in time, I'd love to have The Cure, back in the 80's when they were absolutely awesome, perform for my birthday. I just love, love, love their old stuff.

So who would you pick? If you had a ton of money to spend on your birthday, who would be your artist of choice? I think music says a lot about a person, so I can't wait to see your answers. Happy Friday everyone!

I think that Aerosmith and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers are my favorites that are still alive. Although I am really into the White stripes as well. Jimmy Eat World is great!Happy VGNO!

Happy VGNO! I could think of so many people to play at my birthday party, but since I'd probably have a tropical party, I'll go with my stand-by Jimmy Buffett.

I have a huge variety of music that I love. From Rascal Flatts to Aerosmith to Madonna (also an 80's fan). I like your idea for a palooza.
Happy VGNO!

Kitten said...

Happy VGNO, ma chere! I'd totally have Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band play at my B-day fete. That was a no-brainer for me!

Although your palooza idea is tres intriguing...
