Spotify would be the ideal place to host the famous ILM Rough Guides... if people are willing to put in the hard work (and if their catalogue is up to the job). The threads:

The Rough Guide to . . .
The Rough Guide Two...
The Rough Guide Part 3 (and general redux) - 15 tracks max or one CD only
A Rough Guide To ILM Touchstones

And I've just started a Prince album tracks one, but I've made it collaborative, so if anyone wants to add a load of stuff, particularly off all the more recent albums, which I don't know at all, go for it.

Prince LP Trax

I think this is what it could be really good for, collabortaive lists to accompany POX threads or whatever.

I've been re-reading Vahid's proto-kozmigroovers and Jaxon's jazz goes pop jazz goes disco threads and listening to all those records on Spotify.

Well let's just hope they stay afloat so this isn't all in vain. And that they add more obscuro '80s and '90s stuff to the catalogue or these will remain incomplete:

ILM Rough Guide to the Bo Diddley Beat

Helpful (perhaps obvious) hint: the no. of tracks returned in a search list is limited, you may get more if you click through to the artist. And you can search for/jump to tracks there just by typing the start of the name.

Really good. I've now become a Spotify subscriber - more out of a sense that I support what they're doing and hope they fully succeed, more than finding the adverts irritating.

yeah i'm subscribing too now. gotta support the good service.

Hard House SugBanton (blueski), Sunday, 15 March 2009 20:13 (seven years ago) Permalink

As I moaned on the other thread: hasn't scrobbled properly for me (or a shitload of other Mac users) for two weeks now; despite a lengthy thread on Get Satisfaction in which a Spotify chap promised us they'd worked out what the problem was, we're still waiting on the upgrade. Given that it was an (unwanted/un-asked-for/forced-upon-us) upgrade that fucked it in the first place, I've kind of gone off it a bit.

Yeh, I know, wau wau wau, whining about a service that gives me free music, etc ... ach, see the other thread for my semi-feeble justification.

xp showcasing the hidden influence of prog there. Whoever wrote the Top Gun theme must have been a Yes fan, The Travelling Wilburys clearly ripped off Curved Air for Handle Me with Care, and the Renaissance track sounds naggingly similar to something else.

Was The Three Kings in Clerkenwell on Friday, a pub with the walls papered with 1970s Melody Maker pages and a jukebox full of original 7" singles. Obviously playing with a jukebox is much more fun than Spotify, something that the kids of today will never understand - but I made a playlist from it anyway. Only missing a few tracks, (sadly including take me with u/let's go crazy):

Put one together for I Wanna Be Sedated, a book on '70s pop Scott Woods and I put out 20+ years ago. It's taken from the 100-song discography at the back of the book. Got everything, with four exceptions: 1) no Neil Young and no Slade, and 2) had to substitute live versions of the Germs' "Forming" and the Avengers' "The Amerikan in Me" (predictably not as good as the originals, but at least they were recorded at the time, not later).

Discovered today that Ivy is down and this link is dead: https://support.spotify.com/au/problems/#!/article/Convert-Playlists-to-Spotify

Is there any other way to create a playlist besides dragging-and-dropping each song one at a time or importing from iTunes? I've got a text file just sitting here, looking like a chump.

It's built into the desktop app now (for Windows anyway) - you can import playlists through the File menu.

seven months pass...

So, now that Spotify allows users to upload their own covers for their playlists I've updated my 52 public playlists with their own artwork Most of these were created by me from 0 and some feature tweaked illustrations/photos I found on pinterest/fffound/buamai which I then modified to create the artwork. There are a couple of lazy ones in there where I just adjusted text and colors because I'm a bit obsessive compulsive and it was making me anxious to have half of my playlists with unique covers and the other half with the usual 4 album display.




Here's my profile if you're interested in hearing any of them:

https://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka

Some of them have self-explanatory titles and some of them are kind of cryptic but you may get the idea behind each playlist with a listen. If you want me to explain the mood/sound/concept behind any of them please let me know.

Thank you! There were many hours of procrastination involved Marko haha do not recommend it. Nothing compared to all the hours of procrastination building them though... I seriously need to curate each one of them and purge some songs from each playlist.

I think Spotify is the only "social" network I ever use tho... no twitter, no instagram, no snapchat and I only use facebook to manage the bars I own.

Pplains that looks interesting! Tell me more of the idea behind that one.

Never was into Interpol... it seemed to me that artists from previous decades did that sort of thing better and always hated how buried his voice was in the mix. Then again I also don't like Joy Division which seems to be the closest reference critics loved to drop on them. It was always "the new Joy Division" "the new Television"

Not much to it, Moka. Just one day thinking about how "Love Shack" is technically an 80s song, even though it sounds nothing like Duran Duran. Or how there were all these rock bands doing this thing of what 80s people thought 90s people would like before getting blown out of the water by grunge. Songs that don't 100% fit on either side of Dec. 31. Just like how it's always the Reagan-Bush years, never just the Bush years.

I've posted the link in this thread before, about 500 answers ago probably. Miccio's got a good one that could be a cousin to mine.

Been listening to your Caribou one a lot on Fridays.

pplains, Thursday, 1 December 2016 19:30 (four days ago) Permalink

Ah yes know I understand! It seems like every decade bookends have that no? Like say the 'Post Fordist Pre-Disco Soul'... I specially like how wacky 77-81 and 88-91 were... lots of songs and artists that sound like they would've been influential for the next decade but it seems noone really ever noticed them at the time and we only find them influential when making revisions. Will listen to that one of yours in the weekend. I love those sort of songs that seem to come from another time and place... they seem to age better too.

Can't really take credit for the Caribou one, I'm just a messenger but yes, that playlist is filled with goodies.
