Music is a big part of how I get through my day, so I’m thankful for Spotify

And no, this isn’t a paid endorsement for Spotify or anything like that. Spotify just happens to be my music listening tool at the present moment.

I had previously used a paid subscription, but I’ve recently begun experimenting with using the free version to see how I like it . I’m curious as to whether or not it is worth it to continue a paid subscription versus just using the free version and subscribing to lists. Any input from the audience is welcome.

And so it was that this morning I was looking for something to listen to while writing, and under the browse button I found the Hip Hop Monsters playlist. Our differing definitions of hip hop set aside for the time being, I decided to give it a listen.

One of the songs that came up was this little ditty featuring Miley Cyrus (I can’t believe I just name-dropped her here, but whatever).

I wasn’t looking at the Spotify app when this came on, so I had no idea who I was  listening to, but discovering that it was her did not make me turn away in disgust. In fact, I starred the track.

While browsing, I came across the Workday – Indie list, which has the description “Get through your workday with 8 hours of indie.”

I like discovering new music, so I will be giving that one a whirl at a later time.

I feel obligated to follow the Viral 50 list, because I need to be in tune to what’s hip with the youngsters these days.

If you have a Spotify profile and you think I should be following you and your music choices, please let me know in the comments.

  1. Try browsing playlists.net for Spotify playlists. Of course, I’m still adding to my Old School playlist http://playlists.net/ain-t-nothing-like-the-old-school which is now at 200 hours worth of music.

      Eric, I have actually moved on from Spotify and now exclusively use Google Play Music. I love it. The playlists work a bit better, it never stutters for me on mobile devices, and overall I just enjoy the interface more. I mostly play music on mobile devices, either my iPad or my phone, so Google Play Music seems to work better for me than Spotify in that regard. I always had problems with Spotify suddenly stopping on me while listening on mobile devices, and that hasn’t happened yet with Google. I was actually underground in the subway and my music never stopped.
