As I sat down to think of a really good blog post, I ended up spending an hour watching music videos on YouTube. We can all agree that Walk the Moon is a pretty decent band and that Taylor Swift does have outstanding music videos, but where and why do you listen to your music?
For homework purposes, I stick to Pandora. Mumford & Sons playlist because its chill and laid back (I won’t be tempted to spend hours watching music videos). If I am hardcore car jamming than I hop on over to my friends Spotify for “Arinn’s Shitty Playlist” which is a 300 (and growing) mixture of different artists, decades and genres.
Either I have been too lazy or broke, but iTunes hasn’t been a big one for me. I’m not saying I download illegally, I actually gave that up a year or so ago. I just haven’t seen the purpose for going from my computer, iPad and iPhone to sync all the music together (so, maybe I’m just lazy).
My roommates father works for iHeartRadio, so she “grew up” using that music platform. She’s told me that she isn’t “technically suppose to use other sources” but still does on occasion.
In the iTunes App Store, under top charts, the ranking goes from YouTube, Pandora and then Spotify.I feel like even thought YouTube is used for music, since it has numerous videos to watch that aren’t specifically music related, that is why its downloaded more often.
But my question to you is this; how many music platforms do you use? Do you still have an iPod? Are CD’s still your way of life in the music world? What about a record collection? I’d be pretty damn impressed by a record collection.
