Ever since I’ve become a one-woman department, the music selection is excellent. I don’t have to worry if someone won’t like something or if it’ll offend them. Also I’m not listening the radio where they play the same damn song and commercials so work, that already feels like a torture chamber is even more so.
Although, I have a radio that plays classical so the room has some noise and it’s not deathly quiet.
But at my desk I’ve been playing the 90’s R&B and 90’s Hip Hop stations on Pandora. And I just gotta say, if you are having a bad day (or maybe it’s just me!) those stations immediately make me happy. I’ve gotten reacquainted with some songs that A) I haven’t heard in ages and B) that are permanently in my brain forever.
ie: Brandy-“Have You Ever?”
Toni Braxton-“Unbreak My Heart”
Boyz II Men-“I’ll Make Love to You”
Notorious B.I.G. “Juicy”
Warren G “Regulate”
And seriously so many more… I’m sitting alone in the department and just get so excited. It’s the highlight of my work day, for sure.
I’ve been singing quite louder than I really should when some songs come on, but I just can’t help it. And perhaps since I’m starting to fall in love that I’m just oogling over all these songs, who knows. But if it keeps me sane at work, I’m all for it.
Are you still listening? Your damn right, Pandora! Keep it playing!
