I have often said that if someone looked through my music library that they wouldn’t know what to think given the eclectic mix they would find. I realized this today as I listened to my “Upbeat” playlist. Here is a sampling:
Said the Whale “I Love You”
Amanda Palmer “Leeds United”
CKY “96 Quite Bitter Beings”
Florence + The Machine “Shake It Out”
Katrina & The Waves “Walking on Sunshine”
Arctic Monkeys “I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor”
Daft Punk “Get Lucky”
Gary Numan “Dead Sun Rising”
I will leave off the Gorillaz, Black-Eyed Peas, Jesus Jones, Pharrell Williams, Pink, Pink Floyd, Pink Martini, Richard Cheese and others. Yeah, I have a bit of everything on here including classical and jazz. Variety is not something I am lacking.
But what can I say – with the right music, my energy soars – my focus is great – it is amazing what it can do for me. So why not make it weird and varied.
Oh and yes, I know some of these shouldn’t be “Upbeat” but they work for me.
