The Escobar Music Project

So Pandora may have the Music Genome Project, but around my house we’ve got a subscription to Rhapsody and some wicked free association.*  Every now and then my husband and I will be listening to a song that reminds one of us of  another song, that then leads us to another, and so on and so on until we’ve built a large and beautifully random playlist.

This is never a planned activity.  We don’t ever finish up dinner and say to one another, “Let’s pick a song and then listen to whatever it makes us think of next. . . that would be fun, right?”  We don’t pencil in Music Night on our calendar.  It just happens, on a random Tuesday over a nice post-dinner beer.  Two people who love music with thousands and thousands of songs at their finger tips.  Just a little modern-day music magic.

Here’s our most recent creation:

Battle of Who Could Care Less – Ben Folds Five

Got My Own Thing Now – Squirrel Nut Zippers

Hell – Squirrel Nut Zippers

Jet City Woman – Queensryche

Silent Lucidity – Queensryche

Against All Odds – Phil Collins

Separate Lives – Phil Collins

The Next Time I Fall – Peter Cetera & Amy Grant

Does Anybody Really Know What Time it Is – Chicago

Saturday in the Park – Chicago

25 Or 6 to 4 – Chicago

Fire – Jimi Hendrix

Hey Joe – Jimi Hendrix

The Bear – Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers

4th of July – Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers

Gravity – Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers

Defying Gravity – Indina Menzel/Kristin Chenoweth (from Wicked)

Happy random listening and loving, folks!

*Make no mistake, I am in no way disparaging Pandora.  I’m a huge fan and those genomes have led me to some fabulous artists.
