Moving In or Out
Hauling boxes, packing and unpacking, organizing, cleaning, and delegating are all essential steps to the moving process. This can be stressful, boring, exhausting, exciting, frustrating, or any combination of them all. It can really help to have some quality tunes to improve the mood.
Stressed or Frustrated?
Try “Esp [Deep Relaxation Mix] Radio” on Pandora.com
Try Radiohead, Mum, or ISAN
Try Imogen Heap
Bored or Exhausted?
Try Kaiser Chiefs
Try “Daft Punk Radio” on Pandora
Try Star Trek: Music from the Motion Picture (or others, like the Bourne Series)
If your roommates or neighbors are anything like mine were, you spend many nights trying to get to bed while others are determined to master the expert level drums of Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’ on Rock Band. What’s a poor fellow to do?
Try Regina Spektor
Try Nickel Creek
Try Mum, Radiohead
Try Mat Kearney
Try The Postal Service (not USPS)
Sick and Tired of What You’ve Got
I am now at a point where at time I’ll opt for silence over listening to the same stuff I’ve had for years. I’d go buy more music, but who has extra money for that kind of thing anymore? Fortunately for all of us, we have ye old wise interwebs. There are plenty of places to find the very best music without piracy or paying. It’s true.
Try Pandora.com (great way to find new artists you’ll love)
Try Grooveshark.com (like Pandora, only you select every song you listen to, and you can listen to any song as many times as you would like)
Try iTunes Radio (you can actually select various radio stations from all over straight from iTunes. Nobody will charge you any money for it either.
Try “Daft Punk Radio” on Pandora.com
Try “Instrumental Hip Hop Radio” on Pandora.com
Try The Almost
Try 80s and 90s Songs. Seriously, any one will do.
Try Timbaland’s Shock Value album, Instrumental Version
Try Linkin Park
Because some music was just made for headphones and travel.
