While listening to the radio on my drive home today, something struck me: I no longer recognise a lot of the latest songs that are playing on the radio. Since I often just listen to songs that I chose via iPod or CDs, I don't get to familiarise myself with newer music. That's why I haven't purchased new CDs or songs via iTunes lately.
So, I decided to ask some people's playlists through my social networks. And yep, it's confirmed. I definitely don't recognise the more recent songs and bands/artists. Ergh. I definitely need to update my music.
Anyway, I was just going to take note of my friends' recommended music privately (so I can check them out later), when one of my online friends, Nicola, asked if I was going to share everyone's responses, as she was curious too. Good point, I thought. But, instead of reposting each one's responses individually, I decided to put them all in one blog post to share.
So, here 'ya go...

If you'd like to share your own top 3 favourite songs of the moment, please leave a comment here too.
Now, I'm looking forward to getting my music updated at some stage, instead of stuck on some old favourites from years ago. 🙂
