Play List

I have a special play list for my iPhone. It’s what I call car music or driving music. It’s mostly female voices doing a variety of styles in an upbeat way. No matter how many times I try to make my phone play only this play list, I hear Christmas songs. I can’t get rid of them! My phone keeps sending me secret messages about the Christmas spirit and I keep telling it to stop.

  1. So many of my friends talk about their play lists, on Spotify, on their phones and etc. I can’t figure out Spotify and I don’t have a Smartphone. I do have an Ipod Shuffle but I don’t know how to use it.

  2. Delphine’s playlist was wittily named “Bach to Bach,” and as the name implied, it was chock-full-of Bach pieces–his cello suites, cantatas, concertos and sacred music. She would listen to it whenever she needed to focus on the task at hand. Delphine felt it was music that inspired her, and it was evidenced by the result of her finished work. Whenever she needed the inspiration for completing any assignment, she would simply say to herself, “Bach to work.”

  3. Every major memory I can conjure back to the senses is irrevocably tied to a song of the period. Drowning, by the Backstreet Boys, was the cornerstone of my middle school romance with Ian. Graduation, by Vitamin C, was the anthem of an epoch into young adulthood. Retrospectively, Missing You, by John Waite, is a window into my soul in the present moment. I wonder who is curating the playlist of my life.
