Dam music

March 20, 2012 

Life becomes ten times better when you give it a soundtrack. That's one reason I like Spotify. It's so easy to create playlists for any life event or activity -- writing, cooking, exercising or watching a 130-year-old dam explode.

Let's be honest. You'll need some good music to drown out that explosion, which organizers say will sound like the blast of 20 cannons.

Here's a link to my dam playlist in Spotify. If you don't have Spotify on your computer or smartphone, you can also look up the songs on YouTube. Here's a song list and a video for the first song to get you started.
