Music has always been a huge focus in my life. I remember saving my pennies and buying my very first record. Actually, it was TWO records: Boy George and The Culture Club’s Colour By Numbers (in color nonetheless!) and Olivia Newton John’s Let’s Get Physical. Then there were the cassettes. The best of which included Micheal Jackson Thriller and Cindi Lauper’s She’s So Unusual. The cassette was my era. We swapped tracks filled with inuendos in the form of mixed tapes, lovingly crafted with the push of FF, Pause, and Play/Record buttons. Next came and went CDs and along with them brick and mortar CD stores. Today everything is digital and starts with an i. itunes, ipods, and iphones. Still a music junkie, I now get my fill with virtual radio stations like Pandora and Spotify only to be wooed by the newest audio kid on the block, Songza. This local New York company fufills my nostalgia for a good ‘ole mixed tape, making good on their promise for Good Music making Good Times. Their playlists are curated by music experts to give you specific recommendations based on time of the day you’re listening, mood, and/or activity you’re engaged in. There’s a playlist for everything from commuting to concentrating. I think the folks at Songza know that everyone’s life should have a soundtrack. They helped me find mine. What would be yours?
