What is on your music playlist right now?
I have given up on creating music playlists long ago because I simply cannot decide on what song belong on which playlist. When I first got my iPod 14 years ago, I created playlists religiously and those took a lot of my time. Then Apple created the Genius, which automatically selected the songs that went together. That was a great help.
Nowadays, I no longer listen to my iPod. I have an Amazon Prime subscription, which includes free music streaming. I download the songs I like so it wouldn’t use my data to stream when I’m on the road. It’s what I listen to when I drive to work each week. My phone is connected to my car via bluetooth, so all I have to do is set the music and it will play through my car’s speakers.
What are your choices in music; same old favorites from long ago or new music?
My choice in music is a mix of new and old. The songs I listen to range between a few weeks to a few decades old. It’s a mixed of contemporary pop, country, and folk.
The oldest music I have is probably from the Beatles and possibly the Eagles (which is older?). I like the folksy sound of the Eagles, like the song Take it Easy, which reminded me of the songs my stepdad used to sing and it reminded me of road-trip music. I also like the late 90’s, early 2000’s teen pop and boy bands music, which reminded me of my middle school days. There are some songs on my phone, it’s there not because I like the song, but it just simply invokes nostalgia and makes me think of the people I’ve loved and lost.
