Music to Motivate

Music has always been one of the things that I enjoy.  I’ve always had really eclectic tastes and have liked a wide variety of styles and genres.  It’s funny, because really the only genres I don’t like are Jazz and modern R&B.  Oddly enough, I don’t like them for the same reason – I’m not […]
