Procrastinating on homework, I’m here instead with my Spotify open. For those of you who may not know what Spotify is, it is the coolest application yet. Using your Facebook account information, you can search all kinds of music and listen to full albums for free. Not only can you hear the latest albums of your specific artist, but ones from when he or she first started. With it linked on Facebook, it has also been a way for friends to be able to discover new music or just get an insight of what you may like. I love seeing what my friends are listening to because I can easily listen to the album myself and expand on my music interest. I recommend it to many because you don’t even have to wait for the track to buffer like on Youtube.
It is a great application and I’ve already listened to over 100 songs over the past few days. It’s open to all genres and is just a nice way to hear new and old songs again. If you want to take a break from studying or just want to have something to jam too while hanging out, just download Spotify and you will be hooked! Thanks again to my friend, Jeff, for showing me this amazing application! When you try it, I encourage you to check out Ingrid Michaelson! She is coming to JMU on December 2nd. I had no idea how many of her songs I knew! If you like the sound, tickets are available in the Warren Box Office!
Be sure to keep a look out for her over break! She’s going to be in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
