RAP-try (AKA – I Will Never Thank You Jason Aldean)

WTFI have 7 radio stations programmed into my car stereo. Four of them I listen to. Two are mistakes. One I can’t get rid of.

Of the four I listen to, 4 of them are country stations.

Don’t judge me.

I don’t have to think when I listen to them. I understand the lyrics and can even somewhat relate to the subjects of the songs.

Well I did until these artists decided that RAP and Country would be a good mix.

Have you tried to mix those two words?

I have and the best I can come up with is RAPtry, mostly because that’s what these songs make me want to do – wrap my vehicle around the nearest tree.

Please tell me who thought this was a good idea (Jason Aldean)?

It’s not. It never was. It never will be.

Just because you were moderately successful in finding words that could be mixed, the resultant formula is not RAP nor Country and calling it one or the other does not good music make.

It has, however limited, had one positive effect on my life. I am now awake when I drive. I have to be. How else could I continually push the pre-tuned selector buttons in rapid succession in an attempt to find something to listen to? And by something, I mean anything other than RAPtry. By anything, I mean even Jazz which until now has been good only for upping my anit-psychotic meds, increased therapy sessions to calm my jangled nerves, and a few interventions to stop me from perpetrating homicide on the Jazz man’s head and body.

I guess, if one uses a big enough shovel while digging, or drinks enough tequila, there are good things to be found in all situations. For RAPtry I list them in order: Jason Aldean will surely tire of this crap eventually; I haven’t found out where he lives yet; even Taylor Fliff sounds good in comparison; and my car radio has 9 unprogrammed buttons.

  1. I can’t make sense out of RAP, no matter what it’s mixed with. I was once accused of talking faster than an auctioneer (when I was teaching genealogy classes), but I can’t even keep up with most of the RAPPers.

  2. Hilarious! How can anything good ever come from mixing these two? Anything that sells, as they say.

  3. I love country. You can keep the rap.

  4. Haven’t heard from you for a while. Wish I could subscribe by email so when my iGoogle page goes south, I can still hear from you when I hear from you. Sounds like maybe the radio is going the way of the TV – nothing on but what they want you to see (or hear). And they tell you that’s what everyone wants, and yet in my life, I’ve never been polled for such information. I say, get yourself a disk player and some CDs of your favorites. I bought one a couple years ago to listen to books while I work, and just a couple months ago, my son gave me one of those tiny music players.
