Magical music!

β€’11 Replies

After getting a bit fed up of the lovely Laura's taste in music on the podcasts, decided to download the app - slight problem, I had no music on my phone! Much googling later, have also downloaded an app which lets you download music to your phone (rather than streaming, which uses up your mobile data). Now I have a marvellous bouncy soundtrack to run to - wow, what a difference it makes! So uplifting, I even had a silly smile on my face as I ran!😁 And it's lovely to hear all those old tunes again. Hope this will make the next run a bit easier (25 minutes - eek!)

Listening to music whilst exercising certainly makes a difference. I've just bought an underwater MP3 player so that I can listen to music while I swim... Can't wait to try it out next week in the pool!!

That's so cool! 😁


Have to agree as I didn't like Laura's taste in music.

I do the same as you and have my own tunes which is much better. Have quite a few cringy ones from the 90's mixed in there too! :O

Ha ha! Wasn't going to reveal my dodgy musical tastes, but what the heck - a mixture of Motown, disco and 80s/90s dance music - I am bouncing round the park!! 😁

Ooh that sounds a good sound track! Where did you find it?!

MutleyShuffleGraduate in reply to alikayV

I put it together myself on Deezer - such fun! And all free! 😁

Motown and disco...great suggestion for my playlist πŸ•Ί


Slow steady and you will be fine.. chilling to your music:)

Thanks Oldfloss 😊


I’ve just found Spotify (but too tight to pay) and have played some of the playlists, so I know that silly smile when you hear a tune you haven’t heard for a while. But I nearly broke into a spluttering cackle when Jilted John came on πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Ha ha! Yes I started off with Spotify but then realised it uses up your mobile data if you use it on a jog. I'm a bit out of touch with music these days, it's nice to hear the oldies - maybe not Jilted John tho!!
