This is an ADHD Mind on Music

Blog prompt from BlogHer's NaBloPoMo, which I'm not actually doing... because I suck at month long commitments. But their prompts are good!
Can you listen to music and write? What song did you hear today?
Can I write and listen to music? I just tested this theory, and I think the answer is no because I started this post two hours ago, then put on some music and then completely forgot about it. But that's what happens when I put on music... sometimes I just get sent down a weird thought trajectory.
Which brings us to the second question, "What song did you hear today?"
When I started this blog post, I hadn't fired up the music for the day. So, I got up and went to the desktop and threw on the collection on random.
Tangent! I usually have my playlist set to random. It's been that way with me since music went digital. I either search for what I want to hear in the immediate moment and then just let the playlist go random after, or if I don't have any idea, I just click next and let my playlist pick it for me. Though, more recently I've been embracing the value of occasionally taking random off and listening to albums (or parts of albums) in order and making playlists (aka the modern mixtape). But anyway...
