Ario’s Working Playlists

Michelle Ross

Have you ever been stuck in a job where music was played from a central sound system and everyone was forced to listen to someone else’s preferences? Or worse, elevator smooth jazz so smoothed out it’s no longer jazz. It’s like being robbed of autonomy. Stripped into conformity.  Dulled into apathy. Okay, we’re being dramatic, but it’s pretty annoying, right?


We all tend to think we’re the best DJ, just as everyone thinks their newborn is the most precious or their interior decorating is the definition of talent. Yet, we’re told time after time that we’re not as talented as we think. When we’re driving in the car, all the passengers seem to be filing complaints against our song choices and queuing up their own picks. 


But maybe, just maybe, it’s because no one can understand the depth and complexity of our musical groupings. Oh, you're curious to hear our playlists? The songs we listen to as we create genius products for Ario? We’ve compiled our team’s playlists, and naturally, they’re all very different:
