If you read my blog and/or follow me on twitter, then you know I've been having a good ol' time at my dentist. Whenever its a procedure longer than just a check-up and cleaning, they allow their patients to listen to music. They have a CD player to offer, but limited CDs (Billy Joel and Faith Hill are popular requests, according to their file) so I always try to remember my iPod. I forgot it last week for my appointment, but made sure to be prepared this week.
So I made a playlist last night. It's not so much a thought out playlist, more of a...."I think this will distract me enough, let's try it" list. Two problems though; first, I only have music I've added into my computer from 2 months ago uploaded, and second, I have an iPod Touch. And while I love my iPod 99.67% of the time, there are only two ways to change songs while listening to music: 1) pull up the controls on the screen and touch it, which requires you being able to see the screen, and 2) shake the entire iPod and it will shuffle songs. Neither of which I can do while sitting in the dentist's chair. I was at the mercy of whatever song that came up, for the entire duration. Because of this, I have discovered a few songs that are good to listen to while in the chair, and some that just don't work.
