What's In My Walkman Playlist?

I don't know up to how many songs my Xperia can hold. But if you take a look at my playlist, I've got a mixture of 90's- early 2000s and even last year's songs. I was tuning in to RX 93.1 Dream Radio when I was in grade school. Can you believe that one Christmas my parents gifted me with a Sony Walkman cassette tape player? It must have looked something like this:

Then I do remember saving up my school allowance for tapes I could buy like Five, Britney Spears, The Moffatts, (I have to admit that my taste in music still had to be refined, those were the boy band stages and one hit wonders were aplenty). My love affair for Matchbox 20 also started around the same time I listened to No Doubt and my father had his very own collection of Billy Joel and Carlos Santana from the late 80s to the early 90s.

Talk about selfish, I had my very own Sony component in my room and even listed to music with earbuds on the Walkman when my Mom thought I was already asleep at night. 

Those were the good old days. 

Now, music has been so portable that tapes can be condensed into mp3 songs and can be played on just a touch of the screen. (No more rewinding tapes!) 

So what's within reach of my fingertip via touch screen?
  • Justin Timberlake
  • The Cab
  • Ne-Yo
  • Katy Perry
  • Cee Lo Green
  • David Bowie
  • Stevie Wonder
  • Side A
  • Matchbox 20
  • R Kelly
  • Bruno Mars
  • Keri Hilson
  • No Doubt
  • Janet Jackson
  • Michael Jackson
  • The Cranberries
  • The Corrs
  • Lisa Loeb
  • Madonna
  • Mariah Carey
  • MYMP
  • Toni Braxton
  • Anita Baker
  • Pharell Williams 
Do you have any recommendations? I'm still a student of music as long as my storage can hold it.
