I love Spotify

I recently decided to try out Spotify and I have to admit that I love it. I was so excited that it finally came to the US, as my friends living in the UK had been raving about it for some time now. One of the things I like most about Spotify is my ability to make playlists from their catalog of songs. I have been playing around with making a few different lists using my music library and Spotify’s extensive catalog.

Yes, I linked to every song (save “Barker of the Dupes” because it is not available….anywhere). It took a fairly ridiculous amount of time, but thankfully WordPress has this nifty thing where you can schedule posts. By scheduling it for later in the week, I was able to find songs little by little.

After reading/listening to the songs on the playlist above, you may be thinking, “That is an incredibly eclectic playlist.” In fact, I am very proud of my eclectic musical taste. I have found that I listen more to the song and less to the genre, which means that I often choose songs because of their uniqueness.

I will also try to post other playlists, but I am still learning all the in-and-outs of Spotify. Currently, I’m in the process of creating a playlist of house music and another for independently produced tracks (mostly my friends of mine).

Hope you enjoy the songs! Leave me some feedback on the ones you enjoyed the most. I am open to anything and love to listen to new music.
