“I think I’ll go to Boston”

Written by hootenannie on April 15th, 2011

If you were to look at the “Most Played” playlist in my iTunes*, right there at the very top of the list would be “Boston” by Augustana.  Number one.

This strikes me as very strange, since I don’t really love this song so much I want to marry it.  I mean, sure, it’s catchy – but have I really listened to it more than ANY other song on my iPod?  Seriously?  Do I have an alter ego who takes over once the earbuds are in?  I don’t believe you, iTunes.  I am baffled – flummoxed, even – as to how this has happened.

In any case, yesterday, I said, “You don’t know me, you don’t even care – I think I’ll go to Boston.”  And to Boston I went.

I love this city so much.  From the first time that I arrived here (by bus, no less), I have had a raging crush on Boston.  Something good happens to me – to my heart and to my soul – when I’m here.

And this time, lobster is going to happen to me.

*Over on AnnieBlogs today, she’s talking about her top 5 most loved songs according to iTunes.  Hand to heart, I wrote this before I read her blog this morning.  This is just further proof that she and I are connected on a deep level, and made for each other.

    I’m pretty sure that if you pull up my iTunes (which you can, ’cause you’re sitting in my basement), that Augustana song is pretty high on the “Most Played” list. Agreed: its not really the greatest song ever, but apparently it creeps its way out of my speakers/buds with some frequency whether I realize it or not. But then again I really did leave California to start a new life in Boston, so …

    Aaahh, YAY you’re in Boston!

    Even though I’ve never met Christina, I sort of will be pretending that I’m having wine and cheese with the both of you this weekend. In my wildest dreams, etc.

    I hope you LOVE it and that Boston and co. love you right back. Sounds like you’re off to a good start. :)

    I cross my heart this is 100% true. The SAME thing happened to me. It must be some kind of itunes bug. I have it on my ipod and sure, I do listen to it a fair number of times but I have a VERY hard time believing it’s #1.

    Between you, Christina and myself I believe we have discovered a little itunes mystery!

    Boston is one of my favorite places I’ve ever been to!

    In addition to lobster, you probably need to hit up Mike and Patty’s for breakfast!! (read about it here: http://www.thesweetslife.com/2010/09/maine-boston-foodie-recap.html)

    Annie, I wish I was a little more like you :). Have fun in Boston – that songs makes me want to go to Boston, every time I hear it, although it is nowhere near the top of my playlist…
