XM Radio: Channels Online VS Channels In Your Car or Home

XM RadioI love my XM Satellite Radio, always have. I listen to it in my car, I listen to it online at work and at home. The days of commercial radio have long been gone for me. But there are a few oddities that I just don’t understand.

For instance, the channel options online are slightly different than the channel options on the device in your car or home. I actually first noticed it a year or two ago when me and wife were trying to listen to a hockey game. The channel couldn’t be found.

I noticed it again a few days ago. I had been listening to a station online and decided to tune it in on my drive home. The station couldn’t be found. They just straight up skipped the station and instead presented the next station after.

What’s up with that? You would think that this is satellite radio, all channels would be fed through the satellite. I’m guessing not all of them are though. Maybe some are streamed only online. If all stations were fed through satellites, why would you only pick up a station online and not in your vehicle or home? It just doesn’t make sense.

Another kind of odd, but totally explainable thing is that when you listen online, if there is no activity for 2 hours, the system automatically cuts your connection and you have to click the station again to restart the music playing. That only happens online. I totally understand the reasoning for it, but at the same time – it kind of gets annoying.

Still, I couldn’t imagine not having XM Radio. It’s obviously better than conventional radio, and personally I believe it is better than Sirius Satellite Radio as well. But that’s just my opinion.

The Worst Song Ever?

There are a lot of bands out there with no talent. There are even more songs out there so horrible that it should be classified as torture to make someone listen to it. I’m sure most of you have listened to the radio, so you’ve probably been subject to that kind of torture before.

This particular song however, might just be the worst song ever to be played on the radio. I’m talking about the song “Music Is My Hot Hot Sex” by CSS (Cansei De Ser Sexy). I don’t how this song ever made it to the recording studio, much less out of someone’s head.

I know what you’re thinking, can the song really be worse than any Angel & Airwaves song? Yes, it can. Don’t believe me? Just check out some of the lyrics. If you need further proof – go look for an audio or video file of the song if you dare.

Music is my boyfriend
Music is my girlfriend
Music is my dead end
Music is my imaginary friend
Music is my brother
Music is my great-grand-daughter
Music is my sister
Music is my favorite mistress

From all the shit the one i gotta buy is music
From all the jobs the one i choose is music
From all the drinks the one i get drunk is music
From all the bitches the one i wannabe is music

Music is my beach house
Music is my hometown
Music is my kingsize bed
Music is my hot hot bath
Music is my hot hot sex
Music is my back rub
Music is where i’d like you to touch
