One of my favorite websites is 8Tracks.com. You can listen to user-created playlists based on genre and mood. Crushing on that cute guy in Chem? Folk + Love + Happy. Need some good study music? Study + Classical. Cozied up in your bed with a good book while the snow gently falls outside your window? Winter + Slow + Indie.
I'm addicted. I use it all day long from getting around in the morning to focusing at work and from writing or reading to falling asleep at night. One of my favorite things about it is that you only see the description of the playlist... not the actual songs on it until that specific song plays. The surprise factor is nice. I've discovered a lot of new music and artists via 8Tracks. Also, it's totally ad-free. I highly recommend it! Trust me, you'll love it. ;)
I've been listening to others' playlists, but tonight I finally got around to creating my own. It's a compilation of sweet, happy, romantic indie folk and indie pop love songs. (I know, I know...) I suppose you can blame the perky, upbeat, lovey-dovey inspiration on last night's episode of New Girl. I've been waiting for Nick and Jess to kiss for sooooo long! I had to cover my mouth to keep from screaming out with glee. And I squealed on and off for a good hour. (And man, did Nick lay it on Jess! Oh my dayum!)
So anyway. Give my playlist a listen. Give 8Tracks a listen. And tell me what you think. (If you decide to sign up and create playlists of your own, follow me and let me know so that I can follow you back.)
Have a lovely day!
