Playlists: Round One

Saturday, September 15, 2012

Remember all the angst surrounding my first music swap? Turns out, I had nothing to worry about. Two friends and I gathered last night for a mini feast  (pesto pizza and peach pie), then launched into tales of timbre and voice quality. 

Okay it wasn't that intense, but we did talk about music. A lot. I'm especially glad Katie suggested we share stories of why we chose the songs we did. Until she mentioned it I hadn't even considered the why behind my selections. Some songs had more developed stories, while others were still finding their voice. But mainly we just shared the songs that mattered to us on one level or another. After our discussion, we listed to one selection from each of the three playlists.
