Give Me Music


My kid loves, loves, loves music.

I’m not sure if this is a common thing, but every time she is able to sing the lyrics to new songs, I’m blown away. But this also means that she’s really picky about what she likes to listen to in the car. She has her very own playlist for car rides – and they are a mixture of childrens songs, disney songs, and broadway.

We’ve been listening to the same playlist for a little more than 6 months now, and ohmygod people I am tired of these songs. I have started to harmonize, rap, and scat along with the songs to keep things interesting, but I’m just going to come out and say it – I HATE MARY AND HER LITTLE LAMB.

I recently hit a “new-music” slump. Perhaps it’s because I think that 95% of new music is terrible (I sound like an old person, don’t I?), or maybe I really don’t get the chance to cruise in my car sans baby much….but I miss that feeling of listening to a new song and obsessing over it.

I recently discovered the “Genres & Moods” section of my Spotify app and I am so happy that I did – instead of incessantly playing Top 40, Spotify curates musics to suit unique moods across all genres.  For example, they have playlists called ‘Rainy Day’, ‘After Party At My Crib’, and my personal favorite, “The PMS Playlist”

Here, are my personal recent favorites from Spotify; I’ve added the YouTube videos for you, too.


01: Sleepless (Feat. The High) – Cazzette | 02: I Choose  You – Sarah Bareilles | 03: Fight To Keep – Run River North | 04: Lay Me Down (Acoustic Version) – Sam Smith | 05: Unaware – Alan Stone

How do you discover new music? Anything that I MUST listen to? I’d love to hear!

    I have exactly 30 min. in the car by myself each day – 15 min to work and 15 back. This time is PRECIOUS to me. It’s like a ritual that is a treat just for me.

    I love my podcasts – freakonomics and America’s Test Kitchen are my favorites.
    I also am totally into old-school U2 songs lately – Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.
