Music Now Playing: What’s on Your Mini Player?

Now, here’s a loaded question. What are you listening to at this very moment? Obvi, what’s on your playlist can totes tell us a lot about your mood and overall music tastes. For example, this very morning I was streaming, no lies, Ricky Martin’s “La Copa de la Vida” on my Murfie mini player. (See the featured image for proof.)

So why the heck was I listening to an artist best known for songs like “Livin’ la Vida Loca”, “Shake Your Bon-Bon” and “She Bangs”? It’s hardly rocket science—I was feeling pretty darn up-tempo in the a.m., following a hearty breakfast of black coffee and sugar packets.

Once the jitters die down, who knows, I might switch over my playlist to something a bit more somber. Enough about my listening habits, though—what about you? Hit us up on twitter and tell us what song is playing on your mini player at this very moment. Then hashtag it with #mymusicbe_____, inserting whatever adjective describes your current mood. This could be fun, dot dot dot.

Valentine’s Day: Light vs. Dark Music

Ah yes, the hoopla and ceremony of St. Valentine’s Day. (Wait, that’s today?) I’m just itching to include some sort of wry remark here, but let’s face it, it’s just too easy, and overdone, to hate on lil ole Cupid. So let’s skip that part, and fast forward to the part where we talk about your music playlist for today. Allow me to suggest a few records. Some are light and bright, some dark and dusky; take your pick depending on how you’re feelin’ today. (That is, are you in a lovely mood or moody love?)

If you dig one of the albums, don’t thank me…thank the fine folks at Murfie for their expertise.
