Working at home like I do, I’m spoiled rotten by the fact that I can listen to anything I want, as loud (or as quiet) as I want, all day long. For a music-lover like me, it’s heaven on Earth. Whether this adds or detracts from my productivity is up for debate I suppose, but the fact of the matter is that I adore being able to have music playing whenever I want. And for most of those working hours, it’s Spotify that I typically turn to for my tunes.
I have another playlist rule I’d like to share with you: A little Motown never hurts any playlist. And when it comes to summer music, Motown is a must. Here’s the first of several classic Motown tracks I’ll be adding to the Songs of Summer List, ‘Sir Duke‘ by Stevie Wonder.
Summer. Fun, sun, and…WORK. We’ve got a teenager in the house, and there’s been lots of talk around here lately about just what he’s going to do to earn some dough this summer. It’s a fine balance between having lots of carefree fun and scraping together some scratch from some low-paying gig to splash some gas in the tank. And let’s face it: Most jobs geared towards teenagers (most jobs geared towards adults too, for that matter) kinda suck.
It’s the middle of February, it’s 7 degrees outside….. these are the dark grey days of winter. So in order to keep the Seasonal Affective Disorder at bay, I’ve decided it’s time to hit the beach, if only in the realm of the imagination. Surf tunes for everybody! Banzai !!
The temperature’s dropping, there’s snow in the air, Thanksgiving is almost here… I think the holidays are here. It is time. New festive seasonal theme. You like? It’s also just about time to fire up the yuletide musical selections. I have a little playlist problem. I can’t stop creating them. And when I make one, I don’t know when to say enough is enough, so they all contain about a thousand songs. Oh look! Here’s one of my playlists now, and just in the nick of time. And this one’s a relatively short one. Only 95 tracks. Enjoy!!
