Digitizing CDs and the cure to my musical madness

Since I’ve started using Spotify, its made me want to discover music again. Whatever the music, new or old, I wanted to hear it. I’ve always really loved music, but over the past few years, work and hobbies have taken over and I have been unable to really go searching. Spotify has allowed me to to find some tracks from artists I liked that but never heard of, also helping me find tracks from artists I’ve never heard of.

The one thing I noticed was that I found myself going back to artists I used to listen to, used to love. I have over 100 CDs of various artists. Anything from soft rock, rap, hip hop, rock, punk… I seem to be all over the place. The only thing I seem to dislike is country, unless of course its Taylor Swift. Spotify guarantees 320kbps bitrate and my library is mostly lossless. The music sounds awesome on my Onkyo system.

One thing about me, is that music opens up my mind and makes me more productive. Now having over 8000 tracks locally and access to likely hundreds of thousands more with Spotify, my music cravings are now satisfied. I can’t say I need to listen to a song more than twice anymore! I guess this means the next few months may turn out to be interesting… I think it will be.

And if you were wondering, I am currently listening to the Blue Man Group’s I Feel Love. I love this band’s innovative instruments and sounds. Mind you they are more entertaining to watch, but their music still sounds great!
