♫♪ Opening Pandora’s Box…..

pandora

Unlike Pandora’s box from Greek mythology, Pandora Radio is a treasure box full of wonderful stuff. When my iTunes refused to load because some component was missing, I started searching for online music that would fill my listening needs.  I tried another service but there was some compatibility issues with my WiFi.  So I was delighted to discover Pandora.

Since I am far from a technological wizard, I have fallen for this music site.  If I can figure it out, anyone can.   You can type in song titles, performers, groups, types of music, and it will reward you by playing just what you asked for.  It also shows the lyrics.  As with any online service, there is a free and a paid version of Pandora.  I am still using the free version, because, well, I am cheap! and it gives me what I need.  Yes there are “commercials”  and after a while if you don’t interact with the program, it will ask you if you are still listening.  Click yes, and you start again.

What I really like best about Pandora is that it has so many songs that were “forgotten” to me.  I have my playlists on iTunes but they were rather stagnant.  Now each time I log on to Pandora, I get a new group of songs to listen to.  You can even rate the tracks you listen to, so you can hear your favorites over and over again.  For now, I am letting Pandora decide what to play…. there are enough other decisions to make every day.

Here is a Crosby Stills and Nash song that seems more meaningful to “mature me”  than it did when I first heard it.  Enjoy.

  3. Oh wow! I love Crosby, Stills and Nash. Great song. Sometimes I get in such a mood for their music. I also loved when Neil Young joined them. Good stuff. I’ll have to check out Pandora, even though I’m still not sure how to access it! haha! I’m still living in the 70’s, Ruth.

    I love Pandora radio. That is all I use now. My IPOD only plays mediation music for nighttime sleep.

  6. I love “Wasted on the Way” – classic video. I know what you wrote about meaning in a song changing as you get older. Some music which I grew up with and had so much meaning to my teenage self is tripe now, while other songs have taken on a richer meaning.
