Pssst, hey you. Yeah YOU, over there. C’mere. Have you checked out that cool music app, Spotify, yet? No?
The great thing about Spotify is that you can stream music for free, unless you want to pay a subscription fee to get rid of ads, which really aren’t that troublesome anyway. You can set up your own playlists and copy over as many songs as you want. And you can share it between computers, and even share songs to Facebook and the Twitter. I can’t believe it took me so long to find this thing.
So last week, in the middle of a funk, I found this app. I got started setting up my playlists and music. Here’s what I have so far for playlists:
Dancey and/or Headbobbing
I really like to nail down a description, what can I say? Still, something was missing.
Last week as I made my way around the blogs, I noticed a lot of you were also a bit down. I don’t know if it’s summertime blues, or something in the air (hehe, Phil Collins was right), but after reading so many melancholy posts, and writing my own, I decided to make an “Autism Mama” playlist, with songs I find that pick me up. Here’s what I have so far:
When you’re in a mood, you just can beat lyrics like, “I’m like a chainsaw, I’ll skin your ass raw, and if my day keeps going this way I just might, break somethin’ tonight,” am I right??
Anyway, since I’m sure we all have songs that pump us up when we’re down, I thought you could help me fill up this playlist. What songs do YOU listen to when you’re in a slump, that motivate or empower you?
And don’t you dare suggest Josh Groban. I KNOW you can do better than that. I want to hear from you, so leave a comment with your music suggestions. And if you’re on Spotify, feel free to add me to your “people” list.
