Let me tell you a story.
Last night I had the opportunity for my personal love of music and my day job to cross paths….
You see during the day, I get to work with so many amazing people in the Prairies. About 6 months ago I started asking each person, ” What’s your favourite song?” Why? Well, at first, I was genuinely curious, and just wanted to start conversation and get to know people better. But, It worked so well, I started keeping a list….
Epiphany!!! Then it dawned on me. These are the people I work with. This is our playlist I’m compiling. Wouldn’t it be awesome at our next company event to play a personalized playlist? Where everyone in the room had their song played!!!!
BAM! Well that HAPPENED last night! I’m so stoked, and it is now my new FAV playlist: Praire Playlist
I did add a twist, and provided a list of songs to everyone attending. Having prizes for people to mingle through out the night, and write the names down of who belonged to each song!!! No rules, just talk to everyone in the room and get their fav song.
Pure magic. Oh, the mingle made me tingle It was was amazing to watch people interact and discuss their favourite song. The stories of who, what, why, when & where we’re flying around the room, as the playlist pumped out the speakers for over two hours!
Smile. Give it a shot yourself! Ask your friends, co-workers, or family what their favourite song is. I guarantee you will be amazed at the conversation or playlist you can create!!!
Worst case scenario you have a crazy good convo, or hear someone say, “I don’t have a favourite song!”
Ok, so because I’m generally curious, “What’s your favourite song?” Please add your song into the comments. I know this will help me to get to know you better!
FYI my fav song of all time is AC/DC Back in Black…. Why? No matter what… It gets me jacked and pumps me up!
For imaginary bonus points… Would love to hear in the comments the story of why it’s your fav song?
