You're searching for that one perfect track... out of all the millions of tracks that have ever been recorded. It's impossible to listen to them all. In other words, you can never be 100% confident that you have the perfect track.
You've got a client whose taste runs the gamut from Katrina and the Waves to KC & The Sunshine Band.
A partner who likes "anything melancholy" (his words).
And a creative director who likes anything - absolutely anything - from within his own record collection.
The only saving grace is that one day I will die. After which, I won't have to look for any more music tracks. Unless of course... that is what awaits me in hell...
(I'd be interested in hearing from someone who does enjoy looking for music.)
