It's iPod Day—What's in Edgewater, Davidsonville's Playlist?

Eleven years ago today, the Apple iPod was introduced. If Edgewater and Davidsonville had a playlist, what would it contain?

Did you know that Oct. 23 is iPod day? 

Apparently, Apple introduced the first iPod music device on this day in 2001. And now millions of Americans use the device to listen to their music each day. 

We all have favorite playlists. Mine contains a mix of indie rock, mash-ups and movie soundtracks. 

If the towns of Edgewater and Davidsonville were to create their own playlist, what would it look like? Here are a few suggestions. 

Todd Rundgren - Bang On the Drum All Day — A special ode to the construction workers at the Muddy Creek Road intersection—a seemingly unending project. Will it ever end? 

Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett – It's Five O'Clock Somewhere — OK, so we're not quite a beachfront town. But there's a lot of beautiful waterfront property that'll make anyone want to leave work, head down to Coconut Joe's and enjoy a tall, cool glass of deliciousness. 

Tracy Chapman - Fast Car — Sing along wishfully to this one while you're sitting in hellacious traffic on either Solomons Island Road, Central Avenue or Muddy Creek Road. 

Tim McGraw - Down on the Farm — With Davidsonville and south county being one of the largest areas of rural agriculture Maryland, you've got to enjoy this good-time country song about life on the farm.

B.o.B -  How many towns have airplanes flying overhead every day? This song tells the tale of someone hoping to make a wish, but having to wish upon flying planes instead of shooting stars. It was one of the big hits of 2010 too.   

Phoenix - 1901 — Some families have lived in Edgewater and Davidsonville for generation after generation. Many people in the area can date their family's heritage back to the early 1900s. So why not add a song with that in the title. Plus, Phoenix is awesome—so is this song. Play it with the speakers turned up.
