8 Tracks, Playlists for All Occasions

You thrill me when you drill me

You thrill me when you drill me

I have just discovered a new music app that makes me very happy. I was not shopping for a new one, but I found the tumblr blog for 8 tracks and had to try it.  Each set of tracks is selected and curated by a member of the community. Titles and descriptions give a clue about the intention of the curator.  An example illustrated above is You Thrill Me when You Drill Me playlist, a collection of jazz and blues from the 1920’s to the 1970’s.  This collection of 35 songs includes some very funny lyrics. The staff chooses lists that are very popular to help you select new playlists to try.

I have heard no commercials interrupting my listening so far, but I have only used it for a couple of times.  What I love about the offering is a chance to hear other people’s collections and combinations that thrill them as well as a chance to hear new artists and music.  I have found almost all the tunes on 8 tracks are new to me.  Some of the classical and relaxing style mixes are very artful and enchanting.  There is no charge to use it, and the app is free.  I look forward to using it at home and in the phone while working out or walking.  There is a treasure trove of new music waiting for me in this app.  Try it. You’ll like it, gentle reader.
