Revamp your music taste with these classic Pandora stations.

Ever find yourself sitting at your desk unsure of what to listen to? Cleaning the house with nothing to get you jazzed up? Cooking in an awkward silence? Our Top 5 Timeless Pandora Stations will spice up any dull labor into an exciting experience.

1. Billie Holiday Radio

Clocking in at number 1 is Billie Holiday Radio. Inspired by a visit to The Filling Station in Orange, CA where they happened to pushing out the warm, vinyl popping sounds of 30s-50s, I decided that my Pandora was severely lacking the old-timey talent of Billie Holiday and company. Billie Holiday Radio is perfect for just about every scenario: getting ready in the morning, blogging, tinkering at the workbench, crunching numbers at the desk, and best of all, eating dinner with that special someone.

2. Frank Sinatra Radio

Frank. This station should not come as a shocker. It’s very possible that most Pandora users default to Frank Sinatra Radio as their first Pandora radio station. In fact, I would not be surprised if this were the most popular station on Pandora. Easy to talk over but energetic enough to put everyone in a great mood, this has quickly become our go to station for cooking meals, hanging out with friends and family, and long road trips.

3. Hall & Oates Radio

What better way to release the inner-’80s-child than with Hall & Oates Radio. With a little more “umph” than Phil Collins Radio, this station is sure to keep the mood upbeat and hitting the high notes of the ’80s. Plus, there’s no doubt your co-workers and friends will likely appreciate the greatness/awfulness/awkwardness of those classic ’80s ballads and pop singles. Sing and dance until your heat is content with Hall & Oates Radio.

4. Summer Oldies Radio

From The Beach Boys to The Beatles to Creedence Clearwater Revival, this massive range of sounds is sure to keep your spirits up in the hot, hot heat of the summer (or maybe just a sunny day). Summer Oldies Radio makes it very hard not to sing at the top of your lungs and/or make a few iTunes purchases of those songs you had always wished you’d had in your library.

5. Chumbawumba Radio (sans Chumbawumba)

This is no joke. Chumbawumba Radio has everything you loved from the ’90s and just a little of what you hated (Chumbawumba). Nearly every song will make you want to race home to your TV and scan the channels for Friends (or make you pull the trigger on the Friends Blu-ray Box Set) or yearn for those days where a pager was the closest thing we could get to texting. Just be sure to thumbs down Chumbawumba!
