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
ILM Rough Guide to Vocoders etc

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.

Bob Six, Sunday, 15 March 2009 20:07 (thirteen years ago) link

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

having said that it's just stopped scrobbling for some reason...

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

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.

I've made this playlist with my favorite 70s Mexican songs : https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4fDqNeDPRSUOB1lNc2qy77?si=5b0b62d42ead4bf6
It includes a few acts like Los Angeles Negros and Los Pasteles Verdes that aren't Mexican but were based in Mexico.

Jamie Harley, Thursday, 27 May 2021 08:04 (one year ago) link

Cool! I don't know anything about 70s Mexican songs, will check it out.

in a bar, under the (seandalai), Thursday, 27 May 2021 09:46 (one year ago) link

Cool selection! I’d recommend the themes from the two biggest mexican tv shows for kids in the late 70’s: Burbujas and Carabina de Ambrosio. The former has a really fun soundtrack composed by Esquivel - popular for inventing the space age lounge genre in the 50s/60s - and the later comes from a segment of a cosmic disco song... might be cheating because I think the original artist is from France but noone in France knows this song and everyone in Mexico does. There was a remix of it in the early 00s which was really popular in Mexican nightclubs but no idea who was the artist behind that one.

Odisea Burbujas intro (but check out the whole soundtrack):

Idley composing this playlist of music fits in with this mini-revival of '95-'05 'beats'n'guitars'/"gothy big beat"/eye-liner pop thing as exemplified by the recent CFCF album and also the new CHVRCHES/Robert Smith collab.

Any more suggestions? The music is from all over the map but it seems to work together well

A few months back a friend of mine was making a road trip to Tucson and asked for something to listen to. So I started tossing together a vaguely alt-country kinda mix (mostly coinciding with what I listened to when I lived in Arizona in the mid/late 90s). For the purpose of a long car ride I leaned toward more upbeat tracks - none of the sad/forlorn stuff. Then my wife told me to throw in more old country (like 50s-70s), and then from there I just started adding whatever fit this vibe. The result is a mix of 100+ songs that I never would have thought to put together but has turned out to be my go-to mix whenever I just need some good stuff on in the car or while I'm making dinner etc. It's not ordered - ideally shuffled.

Similarly, a friend requested a mix for her cross-country drive after her 16-year marriage ended, needed to go beyond her own library of songs that were now all associated with her marriage. So I made this:

My semi-regular Heavy Solstice playlist of worldwide drear is extra burnt-out for this season of resignation. Built around three versions of Armenian composer Komitias' work "Apricot Tree", a melody that shadowed me all year. Hearts out to the inhabitants of the Karabakh region. The music of this part of the world plays an ever larger part of my listening as time goes on.

Something different: "Current Favorite Songs." Ranges from really recent pop stuff to rare grooves to everything in between. General focus is r+b, but not very strict by any means whatsoever. And Sade. Lots of Sade. Meant to be played on shuffle. Plan on updating it very frequently over the next week or so to fine tune it a bit more.

melancholy
dramatic
melodramatic
traumatic

because idk that's how ny brain thinks sometimes. too much blue nile and long walks, i reckon.
