Spotify

Okay, random aside here inspire by the musical interlude in that last post.

I LOVE Spotify.  I signed up for a premium membership a little while back, and I haven’t looked back.

I know I could just buy the tracks I want from Amazon or somewhere, and I’d probably spend less overall, but the convenience of adding a track or twenty to a playlist, without having to worry about the price, and not minding if I ditch it again if I don’t like it, is just amazing.  Add that to the fact that I can take the music anywhere I have wi-fi access on my tablet and my phone.  That’s over three hundred tracks, all in high quality, available on a device that couldn’t store a quarter of that.

Anyway, with that little sales pitch over, I will again leave you with some music.  This time, it’s the piece I love most out of the Chicago soundtrack.  I learnt to play a bit of this in a medley while in the school concert band, and while the melody isn’t that complex, it’s fiddly enough to be challenging, and when done properly, amazingly good fun to play.

I also think the performance in the film is amazing, but given that I’m a big fan of the film overall, there’s no real surprise there…

So, I leave you with Sean Palmer – We Both Reached For The Gun

(Regrettably I’m not paid by Spotify or anyone else to promote their service. I just happen to be a big fan of it.)

About The WalkingPlasterDispenser

So who is the Walking Plaster Dispenser? Well, I'm a volunteer First Aider, working with a well-known First Aid charity to help out random people I've never met before (or, more usually, when) they hurt themselves. This typically involves walking briskly (never run...) around after people who are silly enough to do sports or some other suitably daft activity in their free time. In my spare time, I am a graduate engineer, working my way through a graduate scheme with a big engineering company.
