Plymouth Rock's Playlists by Otto
The sun is out, the windows are rolled down and your favorite song is cranking on the radio - what a great start to the road trip! And then the inevitable happens – you reach that point in your journey where the preselected stations on your radio start to fade and the static kicks in and you start the search for a new station. If you had a playlist on your iPod, a CD, or a tape you wouldn’t have to try to find a new station. To avoid being distracted while searching for a new radio station Otto is looking for a new playlist for his next car ride, and needs your suggestions of songs.
Each week, Otto will select a new genre of music, and Plymouth Rock’s Facebook “Fans” will have the opportunity to post their favorite songs from said genre to the Facebook Wall. At the end of each week, Otto will pick the top 15 songs for the playlist of the week and post it to Plymouth Rock’s blog! In addition to the songs, trivia, recipes and more related to each week’s genre of music will be featured.
Anyone who has a Facebook account and is a “Fan” of Plymouth Rock’s Fan Page can participate; so start thinking of your favorite songs, and encourage your family and friends to join in the fun. And if they haven’t already “Liked” on Plymouth Rock’s Facebook Fan Page encourage them to do so.
Since this is the first week of August, and the weather temperatures are high, it’s a perfect time for a beach/summer playlist. Otto is going to be traveling New England this weekend, perhaps taking suggestions from last week’s blog and wants some good tunes for the season. Whether it’s the Beach Boys’ “Surfin’ USA” or Kenny Chesney’s “Summertime,” let Otto know what song will keep him in the summer spirit.
So next time you hear your favorite song make note of it and let Otto know! Likewise, if there is a song that you love, but never hear it on the radio let Otto know so that he can listen to it too! And Otto may have links to his favorite version of the song on YouTube. So keep the songs coming Otto can’t wait to hear your favorites!
And remember - before every road trip Otto uses Plymouth Rock’s Gas Price Finder to find the lowest gas prices near him to save money – which he promptly spends downloading new songs from iTunes for his playlists! Make sure you check it out before your next trip.
