Are you bored of the same songs playing into your ears? Well, why did you make the ‘Playlist’ then? A friend of mine has a playlist for everything you know…a playlist for walking, a playlist for traveling, a playlist for sleeping, a playlist for celebration…!!!
I am working as I type this, reading actually (yes, that’s work for us researchers!). Well, not as I type this but you know before I started typing this. And I will certainly continue also after I publish this one. But well, while I read there’s music playing into my ears…but not a playlist! I’m listening to the good old Radio!
It’s charming, the radio! There’s something about listening to the voice speaking to you and about not knowing which song is going to play next and about not being able to predict whether you might like the song or not. I know that you might probably shaking your head as to disagree with me right away, maybe you are one of those playlist people! Not me. I find radios charming. Not only charming, they are fun. It’s fun to listen to the radio jockey’s soothing voice (somehow I find most of their voices rather soothing…especially the ones that come on at night, they must have a selection process for this?). It’s fun to listen to those jokes they crack once in a while and the anecdotes they share and to those songs they play.
This voice speaking to me made me feel like I wasn’t alone…it was strangely comforting. Is that normal? Have you ever felt that way?
