In my office there are only a handful of people who have access to control what music is played around the office. That’s probably a good thing since I have a habit of listening to something over and over again and I’d drive my colleagues crazy.
In lieu of listening to the stuff that my colleagues put on, when I’m not loving it that is, I have been logging into soundcloud and doing some random searches or following links here there and everywhere and it’s lead to some great discoveries of great remixes. I’m finding myself listening to the radio less and less, especially now that I’m on public transport to work. In the car is about the only place I put the radio on and I don’t want to really lose that. It’s the way I’m staying in touch with new music.
Getting older is interesting and I will always cherish early Kylie, Madonna, and everything else I listened to in my “younger days” but I have no desire to turn into one of those old men who can’t understand or hates anything released in the last 5 years. Granted with some top 40 stuff that is already the case but there are some really cool artists around.
Having said all that, I don’t really have any desire to be on a dancefloor in a nightclub any time soon.
