Playing Music All Day Long

Published February 21, 2013 by Carmen Lamiarum

I still make mixies. Not mix tapes, cause I don’t have a tape deck in my car. but I make mixed CDs to listen to. Ipods are well and good (actually, I hate iTunes, so they’re not. I really want this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sony-NWZ-E464K-8-GB-Digital-Media-MP3-Player-Active-Speaker-Dock-Bundle-BLUE-/200863038186?pt=Other_MP3_Players&hash=item2ec45ebaea ) but I do like to have a choice of what songs to listen to based on how I’m feeling. And I know it’s only February, but it takes me awhile to make mixies. And with the warm-ish weather I had the pleasure of experiencing today, I think that it’s time I start thinking about my Spring/Summer ’13 mixy. I know Summer Song by Leddra Chapman will have to go on there, but I’m not sure what else to put on it. Suggestions would be nice. Think of those songs you blast when you open all your doors and windows for a good spring clean. Something upbeat and happy would be nice. Really, go youtube Summer Song and you’ll get an idea of what I’m talking about. I like British music, and I like stuff that I can sing along to, so I listen to primarily female vocalists.

I also need a new Night Driving mixy. Being that we live on a nocturnal schedule, I do most of my driving around at night. Some songs I know I’ll put on that one are Distractions by Zero 7 and Michael Meets Mozart by The Piano Guys. You should look those up too. I like my night music to be heavy on the piano or violin, laid back, and again, stuff I can sing/hum along to. I like every genre really, but I’m picky about individual songs. Right now I’m obsessing over this Chopin dubstep remix. (Look up Chopin – Nocturne (SixSickSix Dubstep Remix) on youtube.) I might put that on my night mixy, but I’m not sure yet.

I’m rambling. Obsessing over music. I just wanted to write something. Talk to someone. One of my friends is coming over tonight and I’m going to make him watch Secretary with me. (He’s never seen it! Blasphemy!) But he won’t be here for another hour and a half, so I’m trying to think of things to do in the meantime. My new medication seems to make me not like being alone. I wish I had more friends.

  • I don’t know if it fits in your spring, night music concepts, but I really like 3 groups with female lead singers, Breeders, Elastica and Veruca Salt. So, maybe you can give it a try.
