Easy Listening Music Anyone?

Last night I go home riding a bus coz I could not start my car and seems it has battery problems. So I decided to leave the car in the office and give instructions on the motorpool about the problem - t'was a company car. My husband is on a project somewhere north and I need to go home alone. Home is south off Manila and the best way to get there would be the bus and so at least I can rest a bit on the way. I have chosen a bus which does not have a tv since I want some peace when I travel and not watch those melancholy drama/movies on tv screens. I rode a bus with soft lights and comfy seats and soon as I paid the fare, closed my eyes and picture a restful trip on my mind. During the trip, I noticed the radio station was playing easy listening music. First I heard was Enya. I have nothing against Enya but I am simply not much of a fan of her music. I sighed and pretended to be lured with the music. Next on music cue was Avril's 'When You're Gone.' I opened my eyes and see if there was anybody inside the bus with the same startled reaction as mine. Seems everyone was a-okay or they just don't care about the music playing. I opened the small night light on my side of the seat and try to just read with my book. After Avril, a familiar song played "Reunited" but it was just a rendition and not the original Peaches and Herb team. To tell you frankly, I don't like the sound of how they sang the song. And the rest of the not-so-good 'easy listening' music pieces followed and it was the most lousy bus trip I had. You see I have nothing against the artists that sang during my bus trip, I listen to them yes but not on the so-called 'easy listening' moment I want. Sometimes these radio stations don't just have the 'right' music to play for the slot on easy listening. Moral lesson: never leave your home without your iPod hahahaha!

Haha I like easy listening music,certain ones... like classical music, but yeah I must have my own timing to listen to these music types. Sometimes radio stations just mix such songs with other songs that I don't like, ruining that moment where I want just easy listening music only.hehe
