I just stumbled across an interesting way to create a playlist in iTunes. I wanted to listen to “And I Will Kiss” again (from the London Olympic opening ceremony), but since I’m lazy, I just typed “kiss” into the search window. What turned up was a truly eclectic list:
Some of these tracks had completely slipped my memory, such as Al DiMeola’s “Southbound Traveler” and Edson Cordeiro’s “Kiss.” So I started at the top and had a great time reacquainting myself with music I hadn’t heard in a while. Then I tried other search terms, just to see what would happen. You’d be amazed at how many songs or album titles have the word “can’t” in them. I even got a 4-track playlist with “dog.” Predictably, “heart” makes a huge playlist, but the biggest one of all is “love.”
It’s too bad I don’t have much country music in my collection, because I’d love to try “truck.”
Completely off topic appeal to Portuguese readers (and especially Porto natives): We are heading north this week to visit family, and are planning to spend one day in Porto. If you had just one day in town, what would you want to see? Any recommendations for a restaurant with delicious (but not expensive) regional food? Scenic viewpoints? Factory/winery tours?
I’m probably going to wish we had more than one day…
