A friend of mine has brought up various artists from time to time, stating that if he could have a soundtrack for his life that these songs that he gravitated towards would be on them.
I think it was then that I first started to realize that I do the very same thing, but I had never put it into a conscious thought. I have a very broad music horizon and I tend to listen to certain types of music for specific tasks or moods.
Then there are those times where you need music in general…to inspire action in a specific task or stir up some type of emotion or mood. Even people with a year’s worth of songs in their iTunes find themselves at a loss for new music now and again…I think we all need that certain surprise or discovery; without these things we become stagnant and stale.
It is this need for the discovery of new music that drove me to the music site designers.mx. A coworker was kind enough to share this gem with me and I was instantly hooked. I remember camping out their Twitter feed waiting for those initial invites to go out. As of now, I believe all you need is a Twitter account to get access. This unique streaming music site is a place where designers come together to create unique covers and share their playlists…it’s all about discovery…discovery of thoughts, emotions, music, etc.
I think there is a play list for everyone–some spur you to action, some stir up memories or make your foot tap; for whatever you may be craving or trying to satisfy, there’s a good chance you’ll find it here.
A few new songs I’ve added to couple of my playlists are:
Band: Ida Maria
Song: Bad Karma
Band: The Kills
Song: Future Starts Slow
Band: The Flaming Lips
Song: Watching The Planets
So what’s on your playlist?
