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:

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.

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.

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.

pplains, Tuesday, 29 March 2016 19:33 (ten months ago) Permalink

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

Poacher (Chinaski), Tuesday, 29 March 2016 21:27 (ten months ago) Permalink

I recently discovered this site for converting playlists:
http://www.playlist-converter.net/

Though I've been mostly using it to convert Spotify lists to Youtube playlists.

MarkoP, Tuesday, 29 March 2016 21:34 (ten months ago) Permalink

Yeah, on macs at least, you still only have the iTunes option.

But holy cats, Marko, that did the trick! I dare say it even did better than Ivy! (67/75)

pplains, Tuesday, 29 March 2016 21:41 (ten months ago) Permalink

Yeah I just discovered the site yesterday. I haven't tried all the various options with it. Been mostly using it to convert a bunch of my archived Discover Playlists to YouTube playlists, whittling down those results to just music videos, and then playing the resulting playlists on my TV.

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.

No longer active (Moka), Thursday, 1 December 2016 18:27 (two months ago) Permalink

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"

No longer active (Moka), Thursday, 1 December 2016 18:49 (two months ago) Permalink

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 (two months 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.

this is a really special play list I put together that's very personal. it's 200 songs, placed in roughly chronological order, that have had some major impact on me and my life and the way I perceive music, from the first song I ever remember hearing (O Superman) to the last song that really struck me as special. As such I feel like it's a rough guide to me as a music listener, or a kind of musical DNA code of some sort.
Putting it together took a lot of thought and consideration. I had to think back through my life and really concentrate on who I was and what I was feeling at age 11, 16, 22, 29 etc... I decided to stop at 200 songs because I only wanted the best and was wary of making arbitrary choices. Of course the selection process is filtered through my current worldview, meaning it's not entirely honest. There was probably a load of uncool, embarrassing shit that I really loved back in the day that I'd rather forget about. Still that's the way the cookie crumbles.

was thinking of maybe polling these for fun at some point, or diarising them in a blog. till then, I'll just leave this here

Just made a couple favorites playlists (2000-2009, 2010-Present). I have just left things in chronological/preference order, so listening is going to be quite choppy. Not the most intersting way to sort things, but anything else would require more thought than I probably want to devote to Spotify playlists at the moment.)
