My Musical Cubicle

Hey Bloggers,

So as you may know if you have read my blog before, I am a total music junkie.  I am always keeping my ears open for a good song (mostly because I have music A.D.D and I have troubles listening to a song for more than a minute).  I really love to make mixes due in part to the fact that when I use “shuffle” on my iPod, I tend to end up listening to songs I absolutely hate (yes, I could take these off of my iPod, but that just seems like a lot of work).  So because I have this passion for creating different playlists, I wanted to share my most recent one with all of you (I think it turned out really well).  As a side note, most of my playlists/mixes have a certain “feel” to them, for example, really upbeat songs are usually what I use to work out to, so if a mellow or sad song slips in, the whole mood is ruined for me.  On that note, I’m not entirely sure how to describe the mood that this particular mix evokes, but I will do my best.

The songs in this mix are a combination of alternative and pop songs.  The “feel” of them together creates (for me) the perfect environment for me while I am at work.  I don’t know about you all, but I am allowed to bring my iPod to work (thank goodness), but there are some songs that are just not conducive to working at a computer.  Side note:  I have a good friend, who shall not be named (but you know who you are), who thinks I’m a little bit crazy for saying that there are “computer songs”, “car songs”, “workout songs”, etc….but for me, music has to mesh with what I am doing, otherwise things get ugly! :)

So, bloggers, here is my new favorite playlist for while I am at work (I think it might work for homework as well…which will be starting up again way too soon).  Let me know what you think in the comments (the link is at the top of the post), and as always let me know if you have any new songs (or old) that you would like to share with me. An important side note:  these songs does not fully represent the type of music that I like, I really enjoy a variety, this mix simply flows together well–if you suggest music, please don’t suggest a ton of alternative & pop, I like lots of music! :D
