The Songza app is not a product, per se, but it has been such a positive addition to my life, I felt a need to share.

Over the holidays, my best friend was visiting from out of town. One evening, while I was searching for the perfect playlist to prepare dinner and open a great bottle, she suggested the Songza app. My question – “what’s Songza?”

Mood Music

Wikipedia defines Songza as a free music streaming and recommendation service for Internet users in North America. Songza’s own tagline is Listen to Music curated by Music Experts.  The long and the short of it; Songza is a FREE app that provides you with countless playlists based on mood, activity, time of day or theme.

Need to be creative? Working out? Relaxing? Preparing dinner? Playing with the kids? There’s a playlist for that.  And, chances are, there are several playlists, covering different genres of music. It is so situation specific it will suggest a playlist for preparing an Italian meal on a Tuesday night. I kid you not.

Songza’s concierge can also recommend playlists based on mood. So, if you need a good cry, try Sad, Gloomy or Introspective. Alphabetically, from Aggressive to Warm, Songza has your mood covered.

Woke up feeling great, choose Waking Up On The Right Side Of The Bed.  You get the idea.

Dinner party, cocktail party, children’s party – you guessed it, there’s a playlist for it!

Songza can also provide you with soundscapes, such as a Quiet Day In The Park or White Noise For Working.

I can find nothing negative to say about Songza. It is my most used app. It is my most loved app.


The Songza app is available to idevice and android users.
