A playlist for every occasion...

I believe that there is a perfect song for every occasion. Even more, there is a perfect song, or rather perfect playlist for every place. I for one enjoy classic music in the mornings and it is just a morning thing. I put it on when I wake up and listen to it while getting ready and having breakfast and that is it. Once I leave the house after my morning rituals I do not listen to another piece of classic music the entire day.

The second part of my day is the gym. Here I would die if I have to listen to classic music... At the gym my playlist changes to an electro / dubstep vibe which serves to get the blood pumping. I have tried plenty of music while working out and what I realized works the best for me is music with a beat.

Then comes work. Work is strange because over the last couple of years I have experimented with tons of different tunes, anything from rap to rave but after all this experimenting, I realized that at work the best music for me to listen to is feeling good music. This is normally music that I have listened to a lot and know out of my head. This helps that I can focus on work whilst listening to a good tune.

After work me and the guys normally meet up and we play a game of poker or two. As you know poker is a game where one needs to hide any and all emotions. Bluffing and calling bluffs is what poker is all about. We would normally meet up after work at someone’s house, we normally take turns to host the game and whoever is host gets to choose the music.

This was a very hard one for me, what music to listen to whilst playing poker. Once again the experimentation started, what was frustrating was that we were five guys, so I could basically only play my tunes once every five weeks. Two of my friends would play music when hosting and two refused on grounds that it was distracting. It took about six months but eventually I cracked it and created an awesome playlist for poker tournaments. It was an brilliantly timed and tracked hip hop playlist which started off on a chilled note and ends very heated.

So like I said, there is a tune for everything, from the morning to the evening, there is no excuse not to listen to music!

Jason Ward

Jason Ward hails from Shepherds Town, West Virginia. He has recored over two hundred songs and I was fortunate enough to get my hands of two of his latest tracks from the freshly released album "Gracious Bow". The tracks "Bless You" and "Dark in Here" pleasantly surprised me with their soothing tone and subdued nature. The lyrics are beautiful, I even quoted him on my Facebook status update! I am busy downloading the full album and will follow up on what I think but so far I am very impressed! Below are some links to download some music and listen to some streaming music!

In popular music, independent music, often shortened to indie music or "indie", is a term used to describe independence from major commercial record labels and an autonomous, Do-It-Yourself approach to recording and publishing.

Independent labels have been known to strive for minimal influence on the artist they represent, avoiding the artist-cultivating behavior of many major labels.
