Okay kiddos, here we go again! So the other day I was slaving away (as usual) in the Animal Dept. I think I had just cleaned my 53rd exhibit, made my 29th diet and shoveled my 800th pound of poo (just that day) when I came across something strange. Someone had left their music player on a freezer in the hallway.
It didn’t have a name on it, and I didn’t recognize whose it was so I was in a bit of a quandary to figure out who had lost it. Mind you, the easy thing would’ve been to just call over the radio and ask, but really- how lame and boring is that? So instead we’re going to do the fun thing and I’m going to bring you guys in on it! I turned on the player and listened to a few songs – what I need your help with is identifying the music to the keeper. Everyone in our dept has a decidedly different choice in music – with that we can match up the keeper to their tunage! Think you guys are up for it? Okay then, have at it rock stars!
Playlist 1 – Ani DiFranco, Melissa Etheridge, The Beatles, Incubus & Jack Johnson
Playlist 2 – MIKA, Harry Chapin Carpenter, Journey, Queen, CCR
Playlist 3 – Elvis Presley, Avett Bros., Old Crow Medicine Show, Dean Martin & Flogging Molly
Playlist 4 – The Beatles, Sarah Maclachlan, Barenaked Ladies, 80’s Music, & Howard Stern
Playlist 5 – Metallica, 5 Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne, Nickelback, My Darkest Days
Playlist 6 – Ani DiFranco, Gregory Doulass, Rob Blackledge, Eminem, & Phantogram
Your choices are: Mikey (of course!), Jill, Kent, Kimberly, Marilyn & Sarah
Alrighty then, so now you guys have got to match up the music selection with the keeper. You know, if you’re up for it! You might think that what the player looks like might give an indication of who it belongs to, like if it was bright pink and looked like it had been attacked with a bedazzler it would be Jills.
Or if in actuality it was a portable 8-Track player it would be Kents.
But not so! That would be waaaaaay too easy! It’s just a nice, simple player. You figure out the music, and you figure out the keeper. It’s a mystery to solve (cue the Scooby Doo theme song). Have fun with it and good luck. The person with the correct answers is the winner and your prize is absolutely nothing! 🙂 Although you will win the admiration of everyone around you and it is quite possible that you will walk in a perpetual ray of sunshine for the rest of your life. Enjoy yourselves!
