Forgot About That Song!

Sometimes I want to listen to music and not have to put any effort in the song selection. I had my iTunes collection on the DJ setting, where the computer picks 50 or 75 tracks and plays them on an autopilot style setting. This is great for me while I’m doing paperwork or don’t want to have to put a mix together. My music library has zillions of excellent sounds so I don’t have to stop the mix and reset anything. But while I was listening and working I did stop several times because I’d hear something that would hit me. There would be a song that came on that I had forgotten about, a track from an album I love but I hadn’t heard in a long time. Somewhere in the work I was doing, I just started putting all these songs in a playlist together, songs that had been off my radar, and were now back on it. Green Day’s first album 1,039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours has some of my favorite songs from them, Disappearing Boy probably tops there. It’s still one of my faves and I’d forgotten how fun and cool it is. But that was just one of the songs I’d been missing. The rest are on this week’s program. Enjoy!

    I love rediscovering old favorites more than discovering new ones. It’s so much fun! Perhaps this is the niche of music I prefer to listen to?
