I have always enjoyed music, although I have almost no musical talents. I can’t play any instruments, well, except for a few tunes on a recorder, and I’m pretty sure I could manage a tambourine. As far as singing goes, it probably is something best done when I’m alone. However, even with a lack of skills, music is an integral part of my life. Whether I’m at work, writing, cooking, driving, or what have you, I love to have music playing in the background.
Depending on what I’m doing, I have preferences for the music. If I’m in deep thought as I write, I like to listen to classical music or film scores. If I am driving, I tend to like top 40 music, which makes any kids in the car happy about my choice. If I am cooking, then I like to go with the shuffle option and listen to anything from Frank Sinatra to Tchaikovsky to Linkin Park to Adele. Except for country music and heavy metal, I am open to almost any music genre.
My interest in music places Tunes News in my top ten list of favorite WMG publications. Through our team of writers I find myself introduced to new bands and albums that may make nice additions to my music collection. As we increase the publishing schedule and make changes to the site, I always am excited to see what Tunes News has to offer.
Today, we are relaunching Tunes News with a new design. In addition to a new look, we have added a couple new features. First, each month we will be highlighting a featured artist. Last month we started this series with a focus on the Beastie Boys. Second, we have added a poll that will allow our readers to help us choose the featured artist for the upcoming month. We will supply the readers with three options, and they will determine which gets to be featured.
If you have this same connection to music that I do, you may want to check out Tunes News.
