The Beat Drop: Shuffle Spin Vol. 1

The Beat Drop: Shuffle Spin Vol. 1

Have you ever put your iPod/iPhone on shuffle and just gone with the flow? I usually don’t, unless I’m just in the car…I like to have control over the songs that are coming up and the effort level/beat escalation in the songs… however, when I decided to try this roulette type of playlist shenanigans, it was a day I was in D I R E need of some active recovery… so, I linked up my wireless Beats, and hit shuffle.

The whole entire time it was rather interesting and I definitely broke out into giggles frequently.  The playlist that ensued couldn’t have depicted the RANDOM tunes that I have accumulated over the years any better.

really, you get the best of both worlds…

This Shuffle Ride was actually a LOT of fun and taught me to relax and just react!

Let me just preface the following playlist with the fact that it is 100% NOT safe for kids or to listen to at work. Faint of heart, be ware of the Gucci Mane, the Nikki Minaj, the dirty Enrique, and the Rick Ross…



The ride notes are VERY summarized because I literally made notes on my phone as I rode with how I reacted to the songs given to my by the Shuffle Gods… it’s highly unlikely you’ll want to ride this, but if you are so inclined … have fun!
