When Genius...Isn't

I usually love iTunes' "Genius" feature, which lets you select a song, and builds a playlist around it from other songs in your library.

This morning I felt like listening to some Christmas music, so I cued up Taylor Swift's "Silent Night" and hit the Genius button.

Along with "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" by Rascal Flatts and Brenda Lee's "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" I also got Toby Keith's "Who's Your Daddy" and Big & Rich's "Comin' to Your City." Scrolling down, I noticed that coming up will be "Rhinestone Cowboy", "A Boy Named Sue" and "Duelin' Banjos."

What a strange mix. Genius has failed the IQ test this time.

LOL! True...I'd agree. Its funny how I used to love some of those songs around "Christmas" time, now..many of the old ones and some of the new ones only serve to irritate me. Least I know Ive grown up more! :)
How in the world are you? Its good to come by for a visit. I sure hope you and yours have a lovely and blessed Christmas and by your choice of music, it will help you to enjoy the true spirit all the more. Merry Christmas, Barb! :)
