Another new feature that I've been dreaming up for a while has finally taken shape in my mind. Music is, and always has been an important feature in my life. I've gone from being a performer in some way, shape or form, to simply an appreciator... while I miss performing, I hope I never lose my appreciation for music. One of the things I love most is getting to know new artists and their work. Somewhere in passing, I heard that when you hear a song you like on the radio, a wave of feel-good endorphins are released and it provides something akin to a high. That's why when you're driving along, full of ennui, your spirits can be instantly lifted by unexpectedly hearing a song you love on the radio.
A lovely friend at work (Catherine) suggested (while handing me the CD) that I give a listen to Florence and the Machine. I loved it!! After listening poor Florence to death, I asked Catherine for some suggestions so I could compile a new playlist. Kindly Catherine made me a mix CD! Check it out below... I couldn't find one song she put on my CD (Cruel by Dane Rumble) and the version of Poi E that's on here is not nearly as awesome as the one by Patea Maori Club. I already knew she was fantastic, but she absolutely won my heart when I saw she had put The Cure on my mix.
So for my first Playlist, I'm featuring the mix Catherine made pour moi.
What would you put on a Playlist for someone you work with?
