The interweb justifies my blog!

Every holiday season, I rely on Pandora to provide me my Christmas music fix at work (I go into heavy detox in January). Whilst listening to my "Jingle Bells Radio" station yesterday, I stumbled upon a new feature...the ability to use three sliders (labeled "BPM," "Funkmeter" and "Popularity") to tailor a radio station that perfectly reflects your tastes. "Well, I should try that," I thought, "just to see what happens!" I intently placed my sliders where I believed they belonged (where did I REALLY fall on the spectrum of "Hold the Funk" to "Funktastic?") and anxiously pressed the "Launch Station" button to determine my perfect mix of music...

What song would be chosen as the first among the best music for my taste? What artist or group had tailored their songs specifically to my liking?

Don't worry kids -- even the interweb knows that I like bad music. The first song? "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely," by the Backstreet Boys. Oh Pandora, you know me too well...

oh the Backstreet boys. Remember massively BIG silver reflecting signs painted in hot pink to show our obsession for the boys?! The good ole days

I still contend that we should have won that contest. Stupid RV :-P

I distinctly remember the way I felt when you confessed to me that Ann had gotten you hooked on the Backstreet Boys. I remember the dismay I felt when I realized you were serious. And I remember the struggle I went through to still love you. But it was worth.
