I haven't done one of these posts in a looooong time... because that's how long I've been listening to the same music over and over and over again! Yesterday, I sat down in front of my laptop, opened up Google Play and spent all my money. Okay, not all of it, but I feel like I downloaded just a ton of new stuff. And since most of the stuff I wanted is pretty popular, a lot of it was $1.29 instead of the 99 cents I thought was standard. I checked in over at Amazon MP3 to see if their prices were different, and they weren't. Amazon has been my standby for a long time, but I thought I would check out Google Play. I had the inkling that, maybe if I downloaded the music from Play, it would be available for streaming on my phone (using the Google Play Music App). Turns out I was right! The other night, after responsibly pulling over to get the technology working, I listened to my freshly downloaded stuff while driving home by streaming it over my phone. I got to enjoy it while cruising along the freeway before I'd even had the chance to make up my mix. Awesome!
Still, though, there's something to be said for a totally cool mix CD. And I have one, so here it is. Feel free to click on the song name to watch a YouTube video!

Is this music of your taste? Let's be real: almost certainly, it isn't. At my house, I don't actually call this CD Mixtape #5. I call it "Don't Stop." I picked that name in homage to two of the songs - Don't Stop the Party and Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough by Michael Jackson. Maybe I was thinking to myself, "Don't stop buying songs in Spanish." Let's be real: I don't speak Spanish. I haven't made any effort to learn, and while I enjoy the tunes in Spanish, I have no idea what they're about. And then, only once the name was solid in my mind, did I discover that "no te detengas" means "don't stop" in English. I kid you not! So, that's my motto. Whatever you're doing, keep doing it. Don't stop - no te detengas! Go make a mixtape!
