Must Listen: Favorite Pandora Stations for Hanging Around the House
July 31, 2019
From music for game days to music for rainy days, Pandora has you covered.
For many, there's nothing better than sitting down and enjoying a nice, quiet evening at home. For others, however, there's such a thing as too quiet. These are the people who must always have a little bit of music playing, whether they're cleaning up the house, cooking dinner, or just relaxing with a drink at the end of a hard day.
Fortunately for these musically inclined individuals, it's easier than ever to enjoy a little bit of music thanks to Pandora. The popular streaming music service spins up endless hours of music inspired by your favorite songs, artists or genres with just the touch of a button on your mobile device, and now integrated into your TV with Contour from Cox.
If you're new to Pandora, or you're just looking to get a few new stations into your mix, check out these recommendations to enjoy while you're at home.
1. Music for Gameday
If you love football (or any sport, really) and regularly have people come over to watch at your house, you might want to set the stage by playing any one of Pandora's Gameday stations. If you're a rap fan, check out Gameday Rap and Hip Hop. If country is more your style, enjoy Tailgate Party. Either way, it's easy to find the perfect soundtrack to get pumped for the big game.
2. Music for Cooking
Nothing can beat the intoxicating smell of pasta sauce that's been simmering on the stove all day. In fact, the only thing that could make it better is pairing it with the smooth sounds of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and the other classic crooners featured on this playlist of Italian Cooking Music. It's just one of the many Cooking playlists on Pandora, which also includes jazz, soul, indie and even French music for whipping up a quick coq au vin.
3. Music for Rainy Days
If you're someone who loves looking out your window on a dark and rainy day, Pandora's collection of Rainy Day playlists is just the thing for you. Whether you want to throw something on while you settle in to the couch with a book and a blanket, or you'd rather have a good cry with the Sad Songs playlist, it's easy to enjoy the bad weather when you're inside with the radio on.
4. Music for Playtime
If you have kids in your house, Pandora can help turn your home into a dance party in seconds. The Family stations are filled with options including sing-a-long music for toddlers, popular movie and musical soundtracks and more. With a bit of creativity, a Pandora playlist can help enhance playtime (or even give your kids something to do while you enjoy something a bit calmer in a different room).
5. Music for Just Relaxing
Finally, for those who just want to sit back and relax, you can join the 17 million monthly listeners who subscribe to one of Pandora's Chill stations. With 35 stations to choose from — ranging from electronic to classical to acoustic — there's something mellow for everyone. It's the perfect way to enjoy the peace of home without sitting in complete silence.
No matter what type of music you're looking for, Pandora can help you find the right genre to elevate your mood and improve your day. And with reliable, high-speed Internet from Cox (not to mention super-fast Panoramic WiFi) you can always count on your music coming through anywhere in your house.
