I've added so much music onto my playlists because I've heard a song during a commercial or television show. The amount of songs that I've gotten from watching Grey's Anatomy is embarrassing.
I am alone in my office for two weeks this month and it's been glorious. I can be as loud or as messy as I want and no one cares. Usually I will listen to music or podcasts using my earbuds. But right now, I can have my system cranked to eleven. *contented sigh*
So I put my Amazon music on scramble. My music ranges from Dean Martin "That's Amore" to Eminem. So, it can be Mood Swing Radio when I do this. Sometimes I will have to dive for the skip button because it's not work appropriate music, no matter what.
Also, I share this list with Kevin so some of his music is included. Grand Funk, Waylon Jennings, Bryan Adams, Kim Mitchell. Thanks for killing my vibe, Kev.
Now the thing about continually adding songs on my playlists is then I don't get to listen to everything. Sure, I try to build individualized lists but that doesn't always capture everything.
Oh, what are my playlists? Of course I have playlists! They're kind of basic:
30 Second Dance Party
Comedy (Eddie Izzard, Christopher Titus)

You see? It's like Musical Whiplash. Funny that I specifically mentioned Eminem and Dean Martin, but neither has played this morning. Evidence that even with best organization, there are still songs that I don't hear.
And sometimes, the logarithm will decide that all we want to hear is Jack Johnson, Dean Brody, or Blake Shelton. Or, maybe more likely, I'll have accidentally clicked "add album" when adding songs.
So, maybe this will help you add to your list. Or inspire you to create one. In the meanwhile, an example of a song I snagged from a Grey's Anatomy episode:
