I spend a fair bit of my free time listening to the music I like, I seem to spend nearly as much time finding and organizing it. Call it one of the last remaining traces of my old radio days I guess, I think I enjoy the process about as much as the end result.
One of the challenges is keeping it organized in a way that makes it easy to share … another leftover from radio I suppose, part of fun of finding the good stuff is sharing it. YouTube has been my primary form of both listening & sharing for the better part of the past year but recently it started randomly shuffling my meticulously organized playlists and that simply won’t do, not for someone as uptight about that sort of thing as I am. Hopefully it’ll get straightened out soon and when it does I’m going to try to do a better job of sharing this each week, who knows, you might run across something you like.
In the meantime, I’m experimenting with a shortened version using Spotify . That has some flaws, namely a lot of songs missing from the usual 200 or so that I maintain on my YouTube playlist, but for at least a current Top 40 it might be worthwhile. In a couple of trial runs, there’s somewhere between 80% and 90% of the songs I need available, so it’s at least coming close.
If the code works as it should, I believe you should see the Spotify version of the list above (looks pretty good when I preview it anyway).
Missing songs: Days Gone By – The Offspring, Soldiers – Otherwise, Unspoken – Red Line Chemistry, and Let the Sparks Fly – Thousand Foot Krutch
New to the Spotify list this week: Believe In It – Candlebox, Victoria – Eve 6, Like I Roll – Black Stone Cherry, and Band of Brothers – Hellyeah
Dropping off the Spotify list this week: Hell Yeah – Soulicit, Black – Trivium, Infected – 12 Stones, and Enemy Inside – Egypt Central
