A few years ago, discovering music was a difficult task and took up a lot of free time. Or we listened to the radio, or watched music channels on cable TV, or spent endless hours in the stores searching and listening to CDs (yes I'm that old...)
Free time is something that a person does not have when upgrading to adulthood. There was a period in my life that things were complicated, musically speaking. I felt stagnant, I couldn't find anything I liked other than what I already knew and heard, and I didn't have the patience (and time) to walk around.
Fortunately, it was one more problem that the internet came to solve.. and I'm talking about Spotify :)
First, because every Monday, Spotify compiles me a fresh playlist with 30 songs, based on what I usually listen to. In a good week, I add 5 or 6 new songs to my library. In a bad week, I add 1 or 2 (which is not bad at all). When I pick up something particularly useful, I'll go through all the albums of that band. I've been expanding my horizons far beyond what was usual to hear. Second, because I can create playlists with all the albums of my favorite bands, but not include the songs, I don't like (because I rarely like an album entirely). So I don't have to interrupt what I'm doing to skip tracks. Third, because it works perfectly across devices. PCs, smartphones, and TV. Fourth, because I have the shazam paired and whenever I play a song, seconds later it appears on Spotify.
Fith, because at the end of the year, sends me a page full of glimpses with very curious statistics about my musical year.
Only the universe knows how much I like statistics ahah
I'll start sharing my playlists; unfortunately, i can't change my user name because at some point I had my Facebook disconnected and now I have to stick with this big and random username :(
This one bellow is more R&B style... Slow Jams, I hope you enjoy it.
Feel free to share your playlists with me, I would love that.
