Two For Thursday
I decided to give this another go. I know many, like myself, love Spotify. But, there are also those who not only refuse to embrace it, but flat out despise the practice, specifically the artists who receive a check for $1.66 after their song achieves 11 billion streams. I'd like to think that there are more people like myself who use Spotify for the convenience, but will also drop some coin on an album they truly love.
That's my Spotify speech.
I've been creating playlists since I first joined up. Some were made for others by request. Others, for my own listening pleasure. It is a lot easier than burning a disc, uploading and retagging, then uploading again onto the site that hosts all the files, only to find very few downloading, either because they have or know most of the songs in the playlists, or because they live through their iPhones and have no hard drive space. Well, here are two recent playlists you might enjoy. The first is the third volume of "Playing Hooky" and the second is an epic, that could just as well have been three separate mixes called "Now You Has Jazz."
You can follow me on Spotify and listen to everything I've put together. There are playlists devoted to one artist like Pete Townshend or Matthew Sweet, Nine Inch Nails or The Darkness. There are playlists that offer deeper cuts of bands like Queen ("Animal Crackers",) or Hall & Oates ("Say No Hits.") One playlist called "Singles"where I've tried to create better single LPs from classic doubles. Themed playlists and more. Or, just keep your eyes peeled here, and I will post new playlists and old favorites from time to time.
Let's see how this goes over.
Enjoy the music.
