Music to Get Inspired
MUSIC INSPIRATIONS: A PLAYLIST FOR YOU
I LOVE listening to music. And I listen to music of so many genres. I seriously don't discriminate. You'll find me listening to classical just as much as you'll find me listening to top 40, celtic, a cappella, or country. If it's good, I like it.
And there's so much out there to choose from!
So where do we begin?
I'M GIVING YOU MY TOP 10 IN EACH CATEGORY. I HAD A HARD TIME LIMITING IT TO JUST 10, BUT THIS SHOULD GET YOU STARTED.
