30 Songs in 30 Days, Day 16 - A song that you used to love but now hate

You'll have to forgive me.

Day 4 of migraine.

I believe this one is blood pressure related. Either I have a headache because of high blood pressure, or, my blood pressure is high because I have a headache.

My bp has always been a solid 120/80, except for when I have a headache.

But the neuro put me on pills, because my pressure was high the last time I was in her office.

So...I took them for a while, but then I felt okay, so I took myself off of them. I just didn't want to be taking all those pills all the time. I decided to scale back whatever I could.

That was apparently a mistake.

I dragged myself to work today and finally realized this was a different kind of headache. 

Blood pressure = 151/98.

It's never been that high in my life. Mom, Chelsea and Dwayne said Emergency Room. I say the E/R can't do anything more than I can do here.

So anyway, if I seem more slow, sluggish and stupid than usual today, that's why.

Now, task at hand! 30 Day Song Challenge -

I don't hate any songs! I've decided this challenge is unfair, as it's forcing me into boxes, and I don't wanna go! 


Protest over. There is a song that I rather dislike that I used to love. It has nothing to do with the song, and everything to do with the artist.

I wish it didn't. I'd much rather not know anything about any artist's personal life, so I could keep enjoying their music and books and movies and art.


  1. Oh my gosh migraines can be so debilitating sometimes. I hope you feel better soon my friend.

    And after R. Kelly's controversy a few years ago I cannot in good conscience listen to his music anymore.

    1. Hi Keith,
      That's exactly how I feel...It's one thing to be a big jerk, it's another thing to be caught on camera doing unspeakable acts to children.

  2. Yuck to the migraine attack, not a bad song, just because the artist/actor/whoever is a douchebag doesn't mean you can't enjoy the song.

    1. I wish sometimes I didn't know things.

      I went to the doctor today and got a HUGE toradol shot; it hopefully has beaten my migraine into submission until at least Friday.

  3. Hi Michelle. For some reason I can't get your music on "my pad," but I can on my computer. Anyway, I don't know what this dude did, but I'll take your word for it.

    I've been listening to teeny bopper music, and I like the current Brittany Spears tune, "Work." I also like that Lorde (sp?) and her Royal song.

    1. Hi Susie!
      I haven't heard the new Britney song yet, so I'll have to look it up. They played the new Lorde song for me at work, and I really like it too.

      I can't get the songs to play on my iPhone, either. Have no idea why.

  4. I know what you mean about wanting to divorce the artist from the art. Miles Davis was a horrible person. But oh my, how I love his music!

    1. I didn't know that about Miles Davis! :( Bummer...
