From the Curators: Your Pandora Guide to Black Friday Listening

Every year, Black Friday falls on the day after Thanksgiving and has become the busiest shopping day of the year, now synonymous with waking up at 4 a.m. (or earlier!) and standing in line for hours with throngs of other eager shoppers all hoping to find the best deals. Whether you plan on braving the crowds this Black Friday or kicking back until Cyber Monday, we hope to provide potential gift ideas and alleviations to get you through the stress of holiday shopping.

To catch up on current hits, check out any of our Today genre stations, including Today’s Hits, Today’s Country, Today’s Hip Hop and Pop Hits, Today’s R&B and Hip Hop Hits, Today’s College Indie and Today’s Christmas – or start a Drake, Taylor Swift, or “Gangnam Style” station for a taste of all of the current hits.

You can also give the gift of personalized music with a Pandora One Gift Subscription. Pandora One offers a slew of amenities including no ads, higher quality audio, an easy-to-use desktop app and customizable skins. The subscription can be purchased in month or year increments from the Pandora website or in a gift card version from all Target locations. Pandora One is a thoughtful, affordable gift or stocking stuffer for any Pandora fan.

Plan on being the first in line for that big sale? Try any of our Workout stations for high-energy, early morning motivation. Stations like Pop and Hip Hop Power Workout, 80s Cardio, Country Fitness or Classic Rock Power Workout are guaranteed to pump you up however you see fit! Then, unwind from the day’s shopping chaos or recover from your post-Thanksgiving turkey coma with stations like Peaceful Holidays, Relaxation, New Age or Classical.

Now that Thanksgiving is over, the holiday season has officially kicked off into full swing! And what better way to get into the Holiday spirit than with a sampling of our popular Holiday themed genre stations, or artists like Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Vince Guaraldi Trio, Elvis Presley, Mariah Carey, Justin Bieber, and Colbie Caillat.

Happy Black Friday, everyone!
