Shuffle Is Not Ideal Background Music for Writing

I like having noise in the background when I write (most of the time). Recently, however, I forgot that I had the player set on shuffle. And somehow it’d gotten changed from one play list to the whole music library. I don’t know about you, but I have extremely eclectic music tastes. I like specific songs from nearly every genre, which means that putting the library on shuffle results in something like this.

  1. “Inside Out” by Eve 6
  2. “Bach Prelude for Cello” played by YoYoMa
  3. “Fury” by Little Big Town
  4. “Chocolate” by the Smothers Brothers
  5. “Do What U Do” by P!nk
  6. “The Tell-Tale Hound” by Louis Barabbas & The Bedlam Six
  7. “Run, Freedom, Run!” from Urinetown: The Musical
  8. “One More Mile” by Brandon Santini
  9. “Master of Puppets” by Metallica
  10. “The Singing Sea” by Yoko Kanno

Needless to say, I realized my mistake pretty quickly and fixed it. Good thing, too. I can only imagine the weird story that would’ve come out’ve mixing those songs together!
