Yesterday’s post on what’s playing on YOUR iPod got some great feedback on the blog and Twitter. A lot of you suggested some great bands I’ve never heard of and I must say, I’m impressed! There were quite a few of your favorites that have now been added to my playlist.
If you’ve got music that gets your creative juices flowing, don’t be shy… it’s time to share.
Speaking of sharing – I was sent a DM (or twelve) about what my iTunes consists of. I write about music and I talk about it all the time, and people have asked for a glimpse into my private music stash. So, at your request I’ll list out a few (bands/artists) alphabetically.
WARNING: I won’t be able to list them all, there really are too many. It’s not just a ‘stock’ answer I give – I swear!

Okay so that’s it for now. (Sorry the columns are messy.) This is roughly a third of my playlist – now you understand why I say ‘a little of this and a little of that.’ It’s just safer than listing everything out. Hopefully I didn’t bore you to death, but now it’s your turn to answer a question:
** UPDATE** There are just a few others that should be included, because I write about them on Examiner.com and they are so very talented. (A few of them are actually dear friends) They should have been included from the beginning. So here they are!
