      1. ๐Ÿ‘ We have never even met, but that piece will forever be tied to a vision of you, forging out of your environmentally graded high rise building procuring food for your quarantined family in NYC during a freaking world-wide pandemic..๐Ÿ˜‚

  1. Do you have the paid version of Spotify? I use Amazon music which works pretty well for me. Spotify plays random things I donโ€™t like, okay HATE, based on a few songs I like so itโ€™s too high maintenance for me. Maybe thatโ€™s just the free version or because I havenโ€™t used it enough.

    1. We have the family plan, so yes we pay for it. I always check out new releases on Spotify, and if I read about an artist Iโ€™ll give them a try. I add things to playlists based on whims…like a few months ago I got into a show tune phase so I added a bunch of soundtracks to musicals. My daughter will tell me about someone and I add them. Some misses but thereโ€™s always music to suit whatever mood Iโ€™m in. Presently I have Brittany Howard on while I bike

  2. My preferences definitely fall into the Classic Rock genre but I stray into various types of classical every now and then. I really love Lauren Diagle right now. Music is magic for the soul. ๐ŸŽต

  3. That is amazing that you know what you’ve listened to. Since the day after Thanksgiving, we’ve had Christmas music playing throughout the house for about 20 hours a day. There wasn’t a single opera star or band included. I doubt John has played a single CD twice. Yes, we’ve been collecting since CD’s were invented. If you press any of us hard enough, a Christmas carol will come out.

  4. You didn’t have any show tunes on your list. Or did I just not recognize them? I’m asking because that is also one my favorite genres. I learned to appreciate that genre at the knee of my wonderful late father. I haven’t kept up to speed with what may be current since his death so maybe I’m missing something.

    Love me some Adele and should have known she could and would do some remakes of some of the classics of pop. Someday I’ll have to sample some more of her music. Maybe through the library.

    Also love the Beach Boys, mostly for their harmonies but also because they came from the local area around where I grew up and now live. I was surprised to learn from a facebook page that includes history of this area that there was a monument to them at the site of their former home. Just by happenstance I happened to pass a sign directing me to that sacred spot and had the time to actually go there and take some photos. Brough back some really good memories. Mind if I send one of the photos I took there to your goodreads email?

    1. There might not be any show iTunes on my top 100 but I definitely listen to show tunes. This year I had a lot of off beat off broadway stuff on my list. Iโ€™m pretty sure something from Hadestown showed up because that soundtrack was sort of awesome.


  5. Googled this show, which I’d never heard of before. I might have if I’d caught the 2019 Tony Awards, which I also googled and found out it was held in June of that year. I was very busy that summer, getting one of my kids ready for her wedding that fall and helping my other kid get set up to start med school at nearly the same time, which is probably why I missed it. Seeing the synopsis and based on your comment, I hope to have the opportunity to see it, or at least hear it, someday post-pandemic. I also noted that it is completely different and much better reviewed than a similarly named show, Urinetown, which I had the misfortune of personally suffering through!
