Giving My Name Is My Name a listen. Finally. Don’t judge me.
The Brain Food playlist on Spotify
The first track that played on my current Spotify playlist:
Hypnotize will always get me going.
That part where Eminem raps super fast like JJ Fad at the end of Supersonic. Except he was really saying something though.
Rap God – Eminem
Tom Ford – Jay Z
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.
