What Are You Listening To?

For this week's blog, I interviewed a friend who was listening to music in a different way. Instead of whipping out an iPod or other personal music player, she had her computer and was listening to the internet radio station Pandora. Curious about her station choices and what she thought of the service, I interviewed her. Here's the result.

What Are You Listening To?

Right now I have it set to Sarah McLachlan. (ed. note: The listener can set different stations to play songs similar to a particular musician or song style.) Some of my favorites have happened to be Natalie Merchant and Cyndi Lauper. Jewel is on there, and Alanis Morissette. My other favorite station to listen to is Led Zeppelin.

Ever been to Lilith Fair?

I don't even know what that is.

Why Pandora?

I discover a lot of different music this way....Right now I'm listening to 'Take Everything' by Mazzy Star. I've actually never heard this song...I like it.

Any favorite songs from these artists?

'World on Fire' by Sarah McLachlan.
Why Are You Listening To This?

Both these artists fall into genres where there's a lot of instrumentals, and I find the vocals are very soothing and I can get lost in them.

Here's a list of some of Shiree's musical choices, and the artists' most recent albums:

Alanis Morissette: The Collection (2005)
Cyndi Lauper: The Body Acoustic (2005)
Jewel: Goodbye Alice in Wonderland (2006)
Led Zeppelin: How the West Was Won (2003)
Mazzy Star: Among My Swan (1996)
Natalie Merchant: Retrospective (2005)
Sarah McLachlan: Wintersong (2006)
