Pandora - The Matchmaker

Pandora. I love you. 

If you have never heard of or used Pandora, you are missing out if you are a lover of music! It not only plays music that you love, but depending on what artist you input, it will grab other interesting musical similarities to your choice and play that for you too. This is a wonderful way to happen upon new music that you may never have otherwise been introduced to. 

I have found so many artists and songs that I adore through Pandora. I'm at the point I may have to upgrade for the paid version. I use it that much. I haven't yet because...well....I'm just stingy...lol! 

You can create your own music stations and play music you love all day long. (You only get so many hours per month for free - I think it's 30, or you can upgrade to allow more play). If while you are playing a station and a song plays that you don't like, you just click the thumbs down button and it won't play again. It's another way to help it determine your liking! 

Today I came across a band I had never heard before and I absolutely LOVE them!! Mumford and Sons, an English folk rock band from London!

Here is a bit of an introduction for them...a humble band who loves what they do! 

The instrumentation in this video is brilliant. Although the words are not for the wee ones....it's an amazing composition...

Kinda wants to make you up and dance a little jig... :)

You can't get much more real than this.... Incredible! 

There are a ton more videos out on You Tube if you care to see more. I'm grabbing the album tonight. 

Real music. Beautiful voices..... what's not to love!?

Much Love!!!
