Turn down your bass

Are you ever riding in the car and the song you are listening to makes your bass embarrassingly loud?

That’s happened to me on several occasions lately.  No I wasn’t listening to Lil’ Wayne or Lady Gaga’s latest single.  I was listening to classic movie soundtracks and my six disc “That Entertainment” box set.

I’ll be listening to a classic film soundtrack when it dawns on me.  That “BOOM BOOM BOOM” stereo is coming from my Jeep!  

Here are just a few songs that make me nervously turn down the bass:

1. “Ol’ Man River” by Warren Warfield in “Showboat” (1951)

2. “Easy to Love” by Jimmy Stewart in “Born to Dance” (1936)

3. “Maria” by Richard Beymer (dubbed by Jimmy Bryant) in “West Side Story” (1961)

4. “Return to Innocence” by Enigma (Okay, not a classic movie song but weird! lol)

What random songs do you listen to that makes your bass excessively loud?

  1. I have a mix CD that’s got all sorts of songs from classic movies on it and I like to listen to it a lot while I drive. One day while I was doing my internship, I got sent out to pick up something from a place that’s in a little bit of a sketchy area. I already really looked completely out of place there, but guess what CD I had in the car that day? I kept passing all these other cars blaring rap music and then there was me, loudly listening to stuff like “Drummer Boy” from Strike Up the Band and “Good Morning” from Singin’ in the Rain.


    • Oh my gosh! That’s sooo funny. I laughed at that! 🙂
      I know what you mean though. It happened that the time I had “Old Man River” blasting, the guys beside me were listening to some rap song and looking at me oddly. haha
