Nina's Spotify Playlist & Inspiration
The inspiration for my Cocktail Rock of Ages Spotify list is Rock music that spans several decades and is recognized as true Rock Anthems that people of this city can easily recall or remember. They are played readily at sporting events and celebrations of all kinds. They can invoke memories, bring energy to a crowd, and get you up and moving in the gym. In other words, these songs ROCK!!! (Pun intended)

Inspiration: Music. Nothing more, nothing less. I live in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame city. I love metal music, alternative, rock, and so much in between. It pumps you up and soothes the soul. Music is universal; it can bring you back to any time or place. Much like music, aromas, textures, and tastes can do the same. This cocktail reminds me of places I’ve been and places I have yet to see while listening to my favorite music in the background.
