31 Days of Mood Music

Plumfield Dreams: 31 Days of Mood Music

{I am taking The Nester’s challenge to write on a specific topic every day in October.}

When I was a kid I wanted to be Amy Grant. I mean, yeah, I knew it wasn’t possible to actually grow up to be another person, but God could make an exception for me, right? Because she had all these fantastic, fun songs (which I now realize I understood not one bit). And she was an alto, so I could easily wail along with my cassette tapes without missing a beat. On top of all that amazingness, she had that gorgeous hair! Yep. I was pretty sure I was just going to grow up and be her.

Of course as I got older my tastes transformed many times, from pop to country to vocal to classical to jazz to folk – I’ve been through many phases where one genre or another was my preferred for a time. All of this exposure to both the best and the worst of music eventually developed into a broad enjoyment of music and a fairly sophisticated musical palate.

This is my first 31 Days challenge, and I’m taking the opportunity to indulge in one of my greatest loves. I’ll be posting on the topic of music every day in October. My intention is for most posts to be lists of music for various moods or purposes – music for studying, cooking, cleaning, etc. I’ll also delve into some of my favorite music.

Let’s kick things off with one of my all-time favorite bands, Nickel Creek. If you can get through this video without starting to move to the beat, you may not have a pulse:
