I came on here to write another thing, but I forgot what it was, so I thought I’d do that thing I do every now and again where I make a spotify playlist and share it. Here’s the latest one I put together. Includes a winner of The Voice, a few legends, a couple of legends in the making and stuff that reminds me of my student days, among other things.
The playlist will probably get bigger as I go along, which means I might end up renaming it again at some point. Feel free to keep coming back to it and/or follow it if you like.
When I first got Spotify, I was mad on making playlists. In fact, that was and still is, the best thing about it. I always like to share what I’m listening to, usually by posting a tweet of a link to a current favourite with a #nowplaying hashtag attached. I used to post a few of my playlists on here too, until I started to slip out of the habit.
Today I decided that I wanted to start posting playlists regularly again, so I came up with this. I aim to post a spotify playlist of ten songs every Sunday. This kind of follows on from the “Ten Songs” playlists that I did as part of my NaBloPoMo challenge last year, which I quite enjoyed doing if I’m honest. Why only ten songs? Because I think it’s a decent length for a playlist made on spotify to have. Nothing against the long ones, but yeah I do find myself getting bored of the ones that seem to go on for hours after a bit. Although I suppose you can always dip in and out of them, I guess. The playlists themselves won’t have a specific theme, aside from being made up of some of the songs I’ve been listening to over the last seven days.
Anyway here’s the first one. The playlist includes:
- The Supernaturals – Alone With My Thoughts
- Gene – Fighting Fit
- Flyte – Please Eloise
- Everything Everything – Spring/Sun/Winter/Dread
- Editors – All Sparks
- Puressence – This Feeling
- Shannon Saunders – Bodies & Beats
- The Hoosiers – The Wheels Fell Off
- Mansun – Legacy – Radio Edit
- Florence + The Machine – Ship To Wreck
In a moment of boredom, I decided to compile a Spotify playlist of songs that I loved that I hadn’t heard in a long time. I am still in the process of compiling that list, seeing as I am one of those people who is always adding songs, removing others and generally shuffles it around about 50 times before they are satisfied with it.
Before I do unleash it on the world, I should point out that some of the songs that I have rediscovered might well be undiscovered by some people. Indeed there are one or two by artists that aren’t that well known, but you might like them. Anyway, it will be up soon. Just thought I would warn you.
EDIT : My Spotify playlist is now ready for your enjoyment and possible amusement. I might add more songs to it over time, but for now here it is as of today.
