I recently started using Spotify and I’ve fallen completely in love with it. I jumped on the lag wagon a little late. I’ll admit many of my music loving cohorts and cambria, colleagues and classmates tried to inform me of all its awesomeness. Alas, I was too firmly robert planted in my ways to make the journey over to Spotify.
How could Spotify be more fun and trump the format of music streaming sites such as Last.fm, Pandora, and Grooveshark? (Rhetorical question)
Spotify, you have opened my bright eyes. To all those who tried to tell me, I now know the error of my ways. Every music site I had used before seemed to offer less than jake.
Just as sure as I grab my black keys, put on my morning jacket, and head to my cars every Thursday during the long winters, I’ll be sure to keep using Spotify.
(Sorry about that. Some of them were good, some of them were reaching, and some of them seem to work too well making them seem unnoticeable.)
My wife believes I'm obsessed with Spotify. She's not far off in assuming that. We recently had a discussion about our favorite movies. I said to her, "Ok, top five favorite movies, go."
I said top five simply because I know that lurking somewhere in both of our top five movie lists is High Fidelity.
(This story has a point and it will all come together I promise...Also...not an intentional use of a Beatles song title.)
So I got to thinking I make some awfully long playlists that could play for days, sometimes even weeks. What if I had to pick just top five songs for all these playlists?
This just gave me an opportunity to create playlists for almost anything.
Top five songs about breakfast.
Top five songs about pets
Top five songs for the DMV line.
Top five songs for breaking and entering
I'm not doing it because I think I've got some outstanding taste in music either. I mean just yesterday I listened to several offspring albums, post Americana. So, yeah.
I do know I'm going to have fun doing it.
If you're interested in seeing what I put on the list you can subscribe to my playlists once I publish them. Unless of course you're not using Spotify. Then you can't, and you'll just have to take my word on the part where I tell you about how much fun it's going to be.
