Check out my playlists
I’m a music junkie. I’m fortunate to live in what seems like music heaven! There’s quite a few options for streaming music; I settled on Google Play Music about 4 years ago and love it. We have a family plan for under $15, which allows for 6 members per plan. Each member can upload up to 50,000 songs into his or her library and have access to Google’s entire streaming library. Like other services, they offer radio stations and curation that Google and others do.
Our whole family loves it. First graders Alexa and Christopher quickly figured out the basics and create lists of their favorite songs and share my playlists so that I can send them bands to check out from their account. It’s impossible to describe the envy kid-in-the-70s me has of these two’s musical access. I had a radio and turntable. I might have been able to find 3 albums that cost back then (40 years ago!) what I pay monthly now for all the music in the world. The difference boggles my mind. Yet another back in the day story for me.
I’ve been creating playlists of the songs that make up my monthly soundtrack and then combining the months into a year-end list. There are some new releases, but the music can be anything that fit the moment. A couple of years ago, I got ambitious (or was procrastinating on other things, depending on your perspective) and made a few best of lists of music actually released in 1977, 1985, and 1993–all pretty good years in music.
If you aren’t a member, you can still check out the lists and hear song samples. If you are a member, you can subscribe or add them to your own playlists and make them your own. If you have your own playlists, I’d love for you to include links in the comments so that I can check out yours too.
Here are links to what I have.
