I am so tired of listening to what other people like. Radio isn't necessarily bad, .....it's just.......well, I can't handle listening to some of the same annoying songs over and over again. I only actually like a small percentage of the songs available on every radio station. The truth is, my musical taste is very eccentric. Listening to Lady Gaga or Justin Bieber does not make me happy. A lot of the artists I like aren't even played on the radio.
So I think in order to be happy, you have to take charge of the fact that you have the ability to choose. Not just with songs, but you know, it's a start. It doesn't have to cost a fortune either. I don't have tons of money to be spending on cds or itunes. Lilly spilled tea on my laptop keyboard, so my speakers make scary noises now. But, the library has cds to check out, and then there's things like Pandora radio. I love the pandora radio app for my iphone. It's even nice to use it as a car radio, though it doesn't seem loud on the road. I should probably get a car adapter, so I can turn up the volume on it in the car.
Listening to music that speaks to me, that really has the ability to either mimic my mood or uplift my spirits...that is what I want.
So what are you listening to right now? Any suggestions?
