iPod embarrassment: The artist photos YOU flip?

Posted on

archuleta-itouch_lI’ve had my iPod Touch for a month, and I’ve discovered an alarming trend: Anytime David Archuleta’s “Crush” comes on — which is apparently often, since it’s on my Top 25 Most Played — I hit the little tab on the upper right of the screen to hide his photo. Why? Because I can’t chance that someone might see his face in the 45 seconds it takes for the screen to go dark — and just turning the iPod over doesn’t seem quite safe enough. Is this something everyone does — flipping the screen to reveal the tiny track title only on the embarrassing tunes — or just me? If you are a flipper, on what songs?

After the jump, my (alleged) Top 25 Most Played List, which includes three more flips.

1. “More Like Her” by Miranda Lambert

2. “You’re an Angel, and I’m Gonna Cry” by Chris Thile

3. “Keep on Trying” by Poco

4. “When Did Your Heart Go Missing?” by Rooney

5. “Runaround Sue” by Dion

6. “Blame It” by Jamie Foxx (FLIP!)
