Music Meme

I found this at Kat's blog and thought it was such a fun idea. I was a bit hesitant about participating because I realize I am really private about what I listen to. I often hate listening to my iPod when I might run into people for fear that they'll say, "What are you listening to?" Lol, another quirky thing about me! I hope you enjoy reading this and are inspired to participate too!
