Here’s How I use Music to Motivate Me
Music is a great way to clear your Noisy (read restless) mind.
Music touches us in more ways than we can imagine and it is important for me to give it it’s due credit.
I listen to every kind of music — you name it and I will find something that I like about that genre or type of music.
Depending upon the situation, the kind of Music you listen to, can create Ambient noise to hit that sweet spot that may alter your state of mind.
I mostly listen to music in my Car and my choice of music is totally dictated by what I’m heading into. Say —
If I’m heading into work, I’d put on some Dubstep or Celtic
If I’m getting back from work, I’d jam to some Dubstep or Progressive Psychedelic Trance
If I’m going to hit tennis, I’d play Trance or Electronic
If I’m traveling and will be driving for long , I’d put on switch between local radio stations, bollywood music, and pop music.
But, in everyday life, I find lyrics all too distracting and don’t really care for memorizing them et all, unless I naturally really, really like a song. The way I put it is that Lyrics are good for a long drives :)
If I was to recall off the top of my head, some of my fav numbers that get me lip-syncing every time will be:
I’m a 90s kid —
I like Real Music, Real Songs!! …that have some body and depth to them; unlike 99% of the Pop music which is essentially about sex, drugs and beiber (yes, lowercase ‘b’ is on purpose)
Essentially, my everyday music consists of —
- Dubstep (Bassnectar is awesome — e.g. Butterfly)
- Progressive Psychedelic Trance (Youtube playlists — Euphoria, Supernova and many more)
- Electronic (Vitalic is my new fav — e.g. Poison Lips)
- Fusion Bhangra (Basement Bhangra)
- Celtic tunes (Myra loves Baloo Baleerie — a Scottish lullaby by Margie Butler)
- Favorite Pandora Station: “Hall of Fame”
