At the risk of sounding like a big old fuddy-duddy . . . I rarely listen to music anymore.
I grew up in the days of cassette tapes, making my own mix tapes, and listening to the three radio stations that played that moment's popular and/or somewhat alternative/rock artists and songs. I tuned in to those countdown shows to find new stuff. I blasted my car radio or my "boom box" and sang along to everyone and everything from Billy Joel and Bryan Adams to Meatloaf and Def Leppard to movie soundtracks of Footloose and Dirty Dancing.
If you look at my playlists on iTunes now . . . it wouldn't be all that different. Okay, I do have some new stuff on there - really! - but not much. I have no clue how to come up with more modern soundtracks for my writing. This is where you all come in.
How do you listen to music now?
Where do you find new artists and songs?
Who are some of your current favorite artists? Songs?
Please help me find my way out of my time warp! (Or, I suppose, we could all just watch Dirty Dancing and mouth along to every lyric and swoon as Patrick Swayze reminds us that "Nobody puts Baby in a corner." Sigh.)
