Fun Friday: Five Random Songs

Friday, June 16, 2017

Whether I’m working or playing, it’s rare that I don’t have some kind of music going. Because of that, I have a rather eclectic mix of music on all of my devices, whether my personalized streaming stations on Pandora, my Prime Music playlists on Amazon, or the USB drive I have in my car with a couple of hundred pieces of music on it to listen to.

Now that I’m in my new house (mostly—still going back to Nashville a couple of days each week until the end of the month to finish cleaning out the house I rented for 12.5 years) and I’m working on unpacking and arranging, I’ve been listening to a lot more music recently. (Especially since it’s an hour-long drive from my new house in Clarksville to the old house in Nashville, and I usually have too much on my mind to try listening to an audiobook . . . but that’s another post!).

One of my favorite playlists that I’ve built for myself is the one that I labeled “Manic Mix”—it’s a mish-mash of all of the different types of music I listen to, from classical to soundtracks to classic rock to Disney to showtunes. It’s what I have saved on that USB I listen to in the car all the time. So I thought it would be fun to pull up that playlist and share the first five songs that come up.

Manic Mix: Five Random Songs
Random Song #1: “Cello Wars” by The Piano Guys

Random Song #2: “Footloose” by Kenny Loggins

Random Song #3: “The Raiders March” by John Williams

Random Song #4: “That Thing You Do” by The Wonders

Random Song #5: “My Shot” by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anthony Ramos, Daveed Diggs, Okieriete Onaodowan, Leslie Odom, Jr., and the cast of Hamilton<

YouTube Bonus: “Broadway Carpool Karaoke” by James Corden et al.
(Because it is the next video that comes up after the one above and I just can’t resist—because this is totally me in the car!)

What are YOU listening to?

    I generally have an audio book going, whether I am working or driving. However, on those rare occasions that I actually listen to the radio, I listen to sports talk or the local Christian station. When I choose music, it is generally from my MP3 player. I have an eclectic music selection on there, as well. Everything from Broadway, Country, Christian, and Oldies to Veggie Tales. Love my Veggie Tales.

    I identify with the carpool karaoke, as well. I sing and “dance” to all my music, when I take the time to listen.
