Lately I’ve been thinking about how each listing has a unique feel depending on a combination of factors such as decor and location.
Much like a certain song can help set the mood to a movie scene, every little detail plays its role in creating a particular vibe that guests will experience when staying at your place.
With that in mind, I thought it could be fun to think about what a soundtrack to your listing would sound like. For example: a stay at a beach house in California could be enhanced by listening to The Beach Boys and a cosy cottage in the countryside could easily go with a bit of folk music. 🎶
So if you had a chance to make guests’ memories of your place more vivid through music, what would the soundtrack to your listing be like?
I hope you have fun thinking about it and, while you’re at it, why not create a playlist to jam to this weekend? 🕺
Haha it can be a bit of a fiddle making a playlist @Cheryl464, but hypothetically what kinds of songs would make it into your listing's playlist? Is there a certain genre that fits it well?
If I had a listing in this building designed by Hundertwasser,
I think Higway Tune by Great Van Fleet would fit perfectly! 🙂 Considering the sounds (not the lyric) , loud and exaggerate, but with a very interesting result.
Haha I think this building deserves a pretty bombastic playlist to suit its appearance 👌
Would your own listings have a bit more of a tranquil playlist? They're right by the beach too so maybe a holiday kind of theme? 🎶
This is priceless @Liv
I flick between radio stations on the good old traditional plug in wall radio.
The younger one's I've caught humming along to whatever is going including Country Music when I've not changed the station, those songs must at times be well over 40 years old as I don't know them however the lyrics are easy to listen to as they sing those ole tunes.
I always stop and smile and think of the American Hosts / Guests on here when I hear songs like The Night Chicago Died, and other American regions songs are named after.
Love the country vibe for your listing @Helen427 - do you have any local music on radio stations at all? Does New Zealand have much of a Country tradition? 📻
Hi all, as seen as I manage a music page re Moon stompin on facebook, this is right up my street. I guess mine would be Small Faces; All or Nothing! Because I try to offer all to my guests to suit their needs ! Nice thread by the way !
Do you offer any music access for guests in your listing? 🎶
I am educated in classical music, so i would attach a piece of music from the old days to my listings.
But as winter is coming and melancholy thoughts arrive, also influenced by the cover photo of this thread, i choose for something else:
"Hymn to winter" from Norwegian singer Sissel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GaEYpAujvhI
"This old house" for me, @Katie . - Tho I've just had the front painted. - "A rich dark yellowish country cream", I said... "This one's a sort of mustard" he said.... "Great" I said.... Turned out a sort of luminous primrose... 😞 - Perhaps I'll feel better about it in Spring.... 😪
