As I was bopping around to the music in my head, it occurred to me that as good as it sounded in my head, it would sound even better through my computer speakers. Which was when I remembered that we can now download three free songs a week from the library, via Freegal, and keep them forever.
Although I was on a roll, I stopped moving long enough to type the words Dirty Dancing and CD into the library catalog so I could determine the title of the piece, which I learned is Wipe Out (or alternately, Wipeout) by the Surfaris. Since I was due to blog here soon, and thinking of you, dear reader, I decided to time the search and download process, having only tried Freegal once previously, here at the library. All I had to do was:
- Go to the library's homepage and click on eDPPL, your link to digital books, movies and music at the library
- Click music
- Click Freegal
- Type in my library card number
- Type Surfaris in the search field
- Click downlnoad now after my search retrieved the song
- And select Open with Tunes. (iTunes was already loaded on my computer. Your setup may differ.)
What's your go-to song when you need to get energized?
