New Music to Update Your iPod

By Hattie MacAndrews

Some of us are technophobes, some of us are lazy, and some of us simply have no time. Whatever your excuse is for not updating your iTunes, we understand. We’ve compiled our 5 favorite music playlists for your iPod, covering every occasion. Your workouts, your Cyndi Lauper moments, your heartbreak, your winter break on the beach, and even your journey there—we’ve thought of it all. Ranging from Lady Gaga to Elton John, from Bill Withers to Eliza Doolittle, we’re on it. We’ve even scored interviews with 3 of the hot new acts in our Beach Babe Music playlist: Rachel Furner, Noush Skaugen, and Patch William. Now sit back, relax, and press play.
