Top SF Realtor POV: Heavy Metal is Immortal

My “real estate soundtrack” is a heavy-metal montage of music 14-year-old boys would have been listening to back in the 1970s.

We’re talking Deep Purple’s Space Truckin, Black Sabbath’s Paranoid, Aerosmith’s Train Kept A-Rollin, AC/DC’s Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap and other equally inappropriate and guilty pleasures.

You won’t hear Vivaldi’s Four Seasons on my car playlist, though in a pinch – with a sophisticated client in my vehicle – I can queue up a track more fitting than Jethro Tull’s Cross-Eyed Mary.

I’m really dating myself here, and not in a particularly good way. Yet I’m being honest. It’s only rock and roll that can power me across town from one appointment to the next. It helps me pay attention to my aggressive driving. No texting! No talking on the phone! Just getting the led out with Robert Plant. “Way down inside…Woman, you need me…”

When they finally get the driverless car thing figured out, maybe I’ll relinquish the wheel and relax my car DJing. I can switch to Mozart, Emmylou Harris, 2Pac or even Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass. In truth, I like it all. But when it comes to my real estate soundtrack, only metal will do.

What’s your motivating music for real estate?
