listening to music on headphones

I believe I’m going crazy* | Help me update my playlist

Originally published on January 24, 2014.

Back in my high school days, when socializing happened every day, my friends introduced me to a million different types of songs or wrote their own.


Fast forward to the present, and I am extremely bored. I need music while I’m working.

I’ve switched between Pandora and Spotify, but I find myself frequently annoyed at these services. Just because I liked one Selena Gomez song or one album from Daft Punk, doesn’t mean it should be played on repeat or that I like everything from those artists. Come on, Spotify, I’m very complex and so are my tastes. I don’t want to dig tunnels to the center of the Earth to find something new.

I wish I had a Metal Heart on We Heart It.

Please share good music with me, friends. Any genre is fine. Give me whatever your favorites are today or the ones you’ve been listening to forever.

I’ve basically resorted to creating my own random playlists and listening to them over and over. I’m a writer, not a DJ, don’t judge me. Here’s one of them on Spotify. Hopefully, it’ll do something for you on this freezing day.

    There’s this app called Songza which I pretty much live by. They let you pic genres from decades, what type of mood you’re in, what activities you’re doing, etc. It has millions of playlists and no advertisements which is another plus. I commend you on your JT choice because well I love him DUH!

    I will not be predictable and say Springsteen. My favorite music to write by is Loreena McKennit’s album “Book of Secrets.” Celtic and haunting. I think you would enjoy it. It isn’t music to rock out by, however šŸ™‚
