I have a "To Listen To" list at hand and refer to it when I can. Sometimes an album will instantly tweak my interest so the "list" is delayed. Also when I get caught up in a certain genre I focus on listening to albums that way. Currently I am intereted in folk music so I am getting all sorts of recommendations to listen to.
I have enough music that I have not heard yet to last me a lifetime !
I try to listen to something by the Beatles everyday !
I very seldom do random listening whereby I would grab anyhting and just listen to it. My music listening is somewhat organised . I just can't stay with the old reliables as there is so much exciting new music to explore out there !
Perhaps I should just can the list and listen to whatever tickles my fancy at the time ???? May not be a bad idea in hindsight...see what happens ! I will confess truthfully, my "New Music To Listen To" list is not getting shorter ...it's getting longer every day !!!!
