I alternate between the Spice Girls and New Kids on the Block.
I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.

My #1 pet peeve is listening to someones boom box ruining the peace and quiet in the mountains.

I'm with you on this one. I'm by myself a lot of times, and like keeping all of my senses sharp!

Ditto! Give me the sound of the wind in the air, the birds in the sky, and any form of gas eminating from my body. :oops:

If I'm on a treadmill or something, driving a car, reading a book, I like some background tunes. When I'm hiking, I too like to be aware of the sounds around me.

Not being self-righteous, I just find the ambient noise much more enjoyable. And important. :)

And besides, (God help the rest of you), this is my opportunity to sing! :D

Though, I think that makes most of the wildlife shut up. In horror, probably!

I don't even own an Ipod or a phone that plays music, I just hear that song like yeah, over and over again in my head like yeah.

And you always thought that it would be great if you could get rid of those voices in your head telling you to commit abhorrent acts of violence. Be careful what you wish for!
