Adventure Music Roundup – October 2016

Without music, life would be a mistake.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche

So, have you listened to the songs?

It’s been quite a mix, I know.

From Mozart to Metallica, I love discovering gems in each genre. However, I’ve always found that for every good piece of music, there are at least 5 that I would be happy to never hear again.

When choosing a song to pair with a post, often I’ll base my selection on what I happen to be listening to at the time of writing (The Burglars by Animal Collective). Other times, I’ll use a song to inspire a certain feeling or emotion (Should Have Known Better by Sufjan Stevens), or will choose a song to pair with the tone of what I am attempting to communicate (Just For You by Sticky Fingers).

In any case, I hope you’re enjoying them. If you can get them onto a device and take them on your afternoon walk, they’ll open up to a whole new level. Trust me.

Oh, and check this out…a playlist so you can listen to them right here! Ah…technology.

Do let me know if any of them have resonated with you.
