Capitalist Note:Who am I? Who cares? Good questions. It's my site, so I'm going to tap into road days once in awhile by telling you more about who I am - via a "Stuff I Like" series. Nothing too serious, just exploring the micro-niche that resides at the base of all of our lives. Potshots encouraged in the comments.

If you looked closely at my YouTube Music account (nice service, you should give it a shot), you'd see the following behavior:
1--Hate the song, automatic skip.
2--Like the song, listen to it for awhile, then skip.
3--Song has a killer intro, listen for awhile and then replay the intro 4-5 times.
Music can alter your mood at work or on the road. Both places are acceptable locales to have earbuds in, so I'm listening to music a good bit.
But let's focus on the impact of #3 above. Some songs are notable for having killer intros. It's those songs that have the biggest chance to alter your mood.
If you're having a bad day, find a song with an intro that gives you energy, then replay that ###### until you mood changes.
Nobody likes a victim. Music can pull you out of victim mode. For me this week, it's Cherub Rock from the Smashing Pumpkins. Some light guitar, then drums, then a rock and roll finish to the intro.
What did you listen to this week that got you out of victim mode or allowed to you dominate? Hit me in the comments. Cherub Rock video appears below (email subscribers click through for video):
