Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything. — Plato
Ha! Don’t laugh. I’m presuming a playlist is a group of music for an MP3 player, supposedly smart phone, or some other current device. Ha! I suppose some find it laughable that my current playlist is any particular genre in the CD player.
No surprise though, to those who know I’m basically a neo-Luddite and sans tech by choice. The mountain alcove around my home precludes satellite, and the CD player works fine, thank you. The biggest problem is still finding CDs for purchase (or more room to house them in the armoire.
But on to the question. Any genre of the 200 CDs in the player could be my current playlist — it just depends on my mood or activity. Favorites are smooth jazz along with classical guitar, Latin, world, chill lounge, fiddling and folk music, dance and rock, reggae, Motown, blues, African, classical, and new age. Did I say I love music?
…along with Matt Marshak who’s essentially left the smooth jazz genre to pursue folk and country, but his Harlem River Drive song is a mainstay —
There’s just too many exceptional musicians to pick from. But, isn’t that a great problem to have? That’s also why the CD player and armoire are bulging with CDs, vinyl, and yes, those dinosaur cassettes. I can’t imagine a world without music, could you?
“Ah, music,” he said, wiping his eyes. “A magic beyond all we do here!” ―
