A Peek into my Life through my Playlists. What’s in your Playlist?

I never sang out loud to a song in front of other people, in a car for example, until I met my husband.  Our first ‘date’ was us driving his sister home from an Alanis Morisette concert.  We were listening to a Madonna CD and my husband and his sister started singing.. out loud.   I didn’t know what to think because I never really heard anyone sing out loud except in church or at a performance.

Fast forward to almost 15 years years later.

Now I sing in the shower, in the car, while I’m on the treadmill, and when I’m working.  I have music on 80% of my waking hours.  Whether the music is played from the stereo or through my phone, I am one who finds it easier to concentrate if I have music on in the background.  When I travel I usually fall asleep listening to music on my phone.

HTC OneX+ Music hubLately I’ve been listening to music on my HTC OneX+ smartphone that comes with Beats Audio.  Beats Audio delivers studio-quality sound, the way the artist intended for listeners to hear their music, with or without headphones.  The music just sounds authentic.  It’s really quite amazing. You have to hear it to believe it.

Through my HTC Music hub as pictured to the right, I have access to my music as well as Internet Radio options including Pandora and TuneIn Radio.   If your car has an auxiliary port, you can plug-in the HTC Stereo Clip and launch the HTC Car App to listen to music at the tap of a button.  TuneIn Radio will find stations that are currently playing your favorite song, local radio stations, or you can browse trending stations.

So.. what’s on my playlist you ask?

Well between music I’ve downloaded/synced to my HTC OneX+ and Pandora, I have several playlists.  Here’s a peek at what you’ll find in my playlists.

HTC OneX Music Playlist


Cooking & Cleaning Playlists

I have a cooking playlist which includes music from The Killers, Taylor Swift (the kids help me cook), and some old Prince (I know you sing along to Little Red Corvette every time it comes on the radio – it’s ok).  Here’s one more.. if you are around my age you know this song; Here I Go Again by Whitesnake.  You CAN NOT listen to this song without singing.  Perfect cooking music or when you want to embarrass your kids while in the car with the windows down.

Driving Playlists

On to my driving playlist.  My driving playlist includes lots of KidzBop and Disney songs.  You know what’s funny? I didn’t know half the songs on KidzBop 17 were real songs until I heard one of them on the radio.  It just didn’t sound the same when an adult man was signing it.   For those rare times when the kids are not in the car with me I listen to Siouxsie and the Banshees, Coldplay, The Cure, and Tori Amos.

Exercise & Wake-up Music

My exercise playlist which I plan on using very soon is made up of Chemical Brothers, Linkin Park (warning – not child friendly), and 80’s and 90’s music.

Sleep & Relaxation Playlists

My bedtime and relaxing playlist is made up of Cocteau Twins, Norah Jones, Sarah McLachlan, This Mortal Coil, and Enya.

While I’m Working

I listen to a variety of music while blogging and working in general.  If it’s a relaxing work day then I listen to lyrical music.   On stressful, fast paced days I listen to more soothing artists like Enya and Cocteau Twins.
