Mike notices Torya's music list contains all the same type of music.
Mike says that music is like a friend–it makes you feel a different way each time you listen to it. Mike wonders if mood drives music or does music drive the mood? Torya says mood drives music for her. Mike says he listens to mostly playlists. He says that he starts out in one mood and the playlist will change his mood. Mike concludes that music changes the mood–it isn't something you can argue with.
Mike complains that Spotify shuffle play doesn't work at all. He says it is ridiculous. Torya defends them by saying she sorted the playlist and then it worked.

Mike wonders why Spotify can't make their's work.
