Hey you! Do you sing? I sing in my car; I have many diverse albums on my iphone, and the Bluetooth in my car makes it all so easy! I like Broadway tunes, jazz, and songs by various artists. The music selection depends on my mood. Nobody can hear me, and that’s probably a good thing! I don’t think the world is ready for me singing “Matchmaker”.
Music also helps me concentrate when I’m driving—I have solved many problems with music in the background. Sometimes, I even talk out loud (to no one)—it’s amazing how clear the answers are. But there is always music in my car. When I’ve solved the problem to my satisfaction, I then join the singer.

It just makes me happy!
One thing is certain: I cannot drive without music.
So, the next time you are alone, belt it out!
