I’ve been listening to the Valentine’s Day stations on Pandora over the past few days, in particular Quickmixing the Alternative Indie Love Songs, 80s Love Songs, and Love Stinks stations. First, I must praise Pandora for having a Love Stinks station in the first place in recognition of those of us who dislike the day. It’s a definite improvement over having to deal with the sappiness that often results from Valoween.
Since I do like Pandora, I decided to give these stations a whirl on Quickmix. The listening experience can throw you for a loop at first if you’re not expecting almost alternating love songs and anti-love songs of various genres. If you really get into your music, you’ll probably experience a roller coaster of emotions while listening. I know I did last night. Tonight I’m a little more detached from the music, so the experience is a little easier on the emotions.
There are genre stations for several genres I haven’t mentioned, like pop, country, and R&B. Give the stations a listen if Pandora’s available where you live.
