There's no doubt that finding the perfect playlist can motivate and inspire you. Whether it's finishing the last mile of your run, tackling that laundry you've been putting off, or getting you through your workday, tunes can change everything. So let's motivate and inspire each other, shall we?

This is Brain Music: a selection of songs curated monthly by different members of the Rochester community that we hope will inspire you the same way it inspires its curator.

Today we bring you a playlist from Emily Hessney Lynch, one of the brains behind local blog, I Heart Roc. Without further ado, Brain Music Episode 16:


Emily Intro

Hi! My name is Emily, and I’m excited to share my playlist with you! Sharing wonderful things and connecting people is something I’m passionate about; as one of the forces behind I Heart ROC, I love interviewing enthusiastic Rochesterians and providing them a platform for sharing the things they love about life in our city. I also do digital marketing by day, freelance social media work on the side, and read every chance I get!

Whether I’m driving around Rochester, hanging out at home, or transcribing and editing interviews, I’m usually listening to music. My taste is a bit eclectic; as a kid I loved listening to oldies, and in college, I found myself gravitating towards the melancholy. Today, I listen to everything from rap to indie, pop to electronic. I like when artists blur the lines between genres. I discover new music everywhere, including podcasts, Twitter, Spotify, friends, and my husband.

Each song on this playlist has a special significance to me. On my wedding day, the bridal party walked down the aisle to a live pianist playing the Maxene Cyrin cover of “Where Is My Mind,” and my husband and I cut our wedding cake to the BoJack Horseman theme. I used to have late-night dance parties to Reptar and once listened to “Alaska” for the entire month of October. I hope you enjoy my quirky collection of songs!
