iPod Hijack! City Pages staff's Top Ten Most Played

All right, there's no hiding from your Debbie Gibson adoration any longer, and you know who you are. We're coming at you, ready to uproot your guiltiest of guilty pleasure songs by snatching your iPod for a few minutes and telling the world what you're really into. Nor are local and national bands exempt from this standing-on-the-edge-of-a-diveboard-naked kind of vulnerability. Before we take to the streets and expose your Most Played lists, we decided we should probably know the feeling first.

So, what can we glean from the first of what will become a monthly installment of iPod Hijack? Since we're in list mode, try this one on for size:

1. Andrea has impeccable taste in local music. 
2. Jen is obsessed with cheesy '80s hits and new music that sounds like cheesy '80s hits.
3. David is bizarrely forlorn and possibly 72 years old.
4. Bradley was a lesbian in another life.
5. Jessica juuust might have a Britney album in her collection.
6. Nate is an undercover disco fan.
7. Quinton would pick 1979 as his favorite year for music.

Tune in next month (or sooner, if we feel like it) for an iPod expose on a popular local group.
