A couple of recent faves…
Lemonade The last time I responded to a "faves" prompt, I was talking about how much I like the V8 Splash drinks. Well, tasty: yes, cheap: no, so we decided to go with something less expensive. Turns out that the house-brand lemonade is just as satisfying, and a whole lot cheaper.
Instant Coffee Mary usually brews enough coffee in the morning for the whole day, but since we’re spending a lot more time at home, I’m drinking a lot more of it, or sometimes Mary will need more coffee and we’ll go through it a lot faster. When that happens and I want more coffee, I drink good ol’ Taster’s Choice instant coffee. Kind of like frozen pizza, it’s gotten a lot better over the years, although honestly I always kind of liked it. Reminds me of Grandma Holton, who used to drink it all the time.
Vaporwave The best description I’ve heard of vaporwave is that it’s like drowning in a shopping mall fountain. There’s a lot of it on YouTube, and more on Soundcloud and Bandcamp. Here’s an example.
Other "Odd" Music I’ve also rediscovered production music, which is music that is licensed for things like industrial films and commercials. The YouTube account Raw And Real Retail uses it in many of their walking tours of shopping malls, like this one.
And you just can’t beat good old Muzak sometimes…
You’re probably sitting there saying to yourself "John’s flipped his lid." And you’re probably right. Thanks to our little virus friend, I spend a lot of time at home on the computer, and more often than not I’m listening to music, and I need something that I can listen to that’s instrumental and unobtrusive enough that I’m not distracted from what I’m doing. Ergo, music that’s there to be ignored.
So, there are some faves of mine. What about you?
