videos of thousands of shade balls rolling into Southern California reservoirs
. But now the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, which represents 26 water agencies, is sending their conservation message out in what could be the most effective way yet: in between blasts of music.
Metropolitan has taken to music streaming service Pandora to launch "Water Lover's Station," which features songs timed for five-minute showers, according to Bizjournals.com.
I wonder how they chose Pandora out of all the streaming services? Isn't TIDAL a shoe-in for a water-themed streaming station? Missed opportunities to make bad puns aside, the move is part of the agency's #TakeATurnCA water conservation campaign. The station also has playlists filled to the brim with water references. Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water?" Check. Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain?" Got it. Boyz II Men's "Water Runs Dry?" You better fucking believe it.
A personal favorite: Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Have You Ever Seen the Rain."
I like this idea (even if the agency failed to somehow involve the Bay Area-based band, WATERS
), because if I have to take a shower under five minutes bumping the great CCR might just be enough to make the whole experience a wash.
No word yet on whether or not they plan to add the YouTube smash hit "Chocolate Rain" anytime soon. Tweet me your favorite water-themed songs. Or don't. — @MattSaincome
