The question of music

Today I added that playlist thingie to my blog. I added a few songs that I like. I forgot to check the 'random play' feature, so it always starts with "Live this life." I need to figure out how to change that. The question is this:

Is it irritating to open a blog and be subjected to their choice of music ?

I read many blogs and some have musuc and some do not. It isn't a 'will read' or 'wont read' issue for me. I don't mind the music. If I prefer not to listen at the moment, I can stop it. It is irritating when the playlist player thing is hidden (more often on MySpace.)

What do you think, my regualr readers?

I am not a multi-sensory kind of gal - heck, just the various voices in my head throw me off. So, I keep my computer on mute. I never know who has music. I have tried to watch video clips on blogs that have music and can't hear the clip because of the music.

I guess it could be irritating to some people, our music thingie; that is why I put it at the top of the page so they can turn it off easily.

Speaking for myself, I love music, it is food for my soul and enjoy discovering what other bloggers have on their playlist.

It's pretty bad when your own playlist gets on your nerves! That's my case. Although I still love my choice of songs, I can't get back into the playlist (forgot password and must have used a different e-mail account... hmmm), but am not ready to delete it entirely. Thankfully, as is the case with junk e-mail, visitors/readers can click and the music magically goes away!

One point to make is that other bloggers' choices of music can widen your own musical horizon. I say add the playlist-thingy... and enjoy the variety it offers!
