Someone posted a post punk/ synthpop playlist link on the other thread- any chance of a re-up?

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

talk me down off the (ledge), Friday, 6 February 2009 12:34 (ten years ago) link

Hmm I might have a go at that on Sunday...

Great, thanks Jamie!

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.

Jamie T Smith, Friday, 6 February 2009 13:17 (ten years ago) link

I'm working on a Paradise Garage playlist, but there's a way to go yet.

Hopefully someone will post a ILX best of 2008 Poll playlist.

I've been working on that as well, but there are a surprising number of not-founds.

Safe Boating is No Accident (G00blar), Thursday, 12 February 2009 19:38 (ten years ago) link

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
ILM Rough Guide to Electro (all 6 tracks)

cat anatomy expert (ledge), Friday, 13 February 2009 17:54 (ten years ago) link

ILM Rough Guide to Neil Young (missing "This Note's For You

")

Safe Boating is No Accident (G00blar), Friday, 13 February 2009 18:16 (ten years ago) link

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.

OMFG I WAS JUST LISTENING TO THAT PLAYLIST ABOVE AND COMPILING THE ROUGH GUIDE TO SOFT ROCK, AND JUST AS I ADDED VAN HALEN WHY CAN'T THIS BE LOVE, VAN HALEN WHY CAN'T THIS BE LOVE CAME ON

cat anatomy expert (ledge), Sunday, 15 February 2009 01:13 (ten years ago) link

and no i didn't double click or anything, it was definitely playing from the 'the face' playlist.

Anyway, three or four omissions in each of these, but still a decent selection.
ILM Rough Guide to Soft Rock
ILM Rough Guide to R&B, 91-96

Hard House SugBanton (blueski), Sunday, 15 March 2009 19:12 (ten years ago) link

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 (ten 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 (ten 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.

Really busy at the mo' but thought I'd throw this out... feel free to add to it any music that 18 month old twins might like.

They usually get played Woody & Leadbelly, trad R&R, doo-wop (especially!), and the boy gets terribly excited jumping up and down to that Come on "Baby, Let's Go Down Town" song on Tonight's the Night!

This is kind of my version of that playlist: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7JgTtjP1okA85VHJazcBEw?si=UhU0IJsgTEqlx3eZvd0KUg

Thanks seandalai. It was the Spotify algo that helped me find those two tracks. The Fern Kinney track is what inspired it. It's currently my favourite song in the world.

Spotify Wrapped giving me weird results this year, possibly a side effect of using the app less thanks to less work stability. Still, seems odd that Gordon Lightfoot is my top artist when not one of his tracks landed in my 100 most-played.

Simon H., Thursday, 5 December 2019 13:43 (one month ago) link

Mine is 50% video game soundtracks I listen to at work. Any ideas if there's a way for it not to count stuff like this?

One factor that probably upset my data is falling asleep listening to an album or podcast that kept looping/going. I appreciate that the app seemed to get the idea eventually that I didn't want it to loop albums (i.e., it didn't keep going back to the default looping).

eatandoph (Neue Jesse Schule), Thursday, 5 December 2019 16:05 (one month ago) link

I liked that last year’s data showed you how many different music genres you listened to. This time it only shows you your top 5 music genres.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 5 December 2019 16:15 (one month ago) link

i listened to much fewer minutes than last year 58k compared to 79k... not entirely sure why. still, not bad but i really feel like i've slipped when it comes to listening to music in general for some reason.

Top non-soundtrack artists: Big Thief, Scott Walker, Autechre (no surprise there)
87 different countries (wow!)

Someone called TPR who did an orchestral version of the Chrono Trigger soundtrack has been my top artist two years running, LOOOL

brigadier pudding (DJP), Thursday, 5 December 2019 16:37 (one month ago) link

My kid annihilated my year and decade too, having a Premium family plan really makes these summaries kinda meaningless. According to my summary all I listen to is the Hamilton soundtrack, Marshmello, One Direction and "Flamingo" by Kero Kero Bonito.

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 5 December 2019 17:05 (one month ago) link

the majority of my top stuff is stuff my kids or wife listens to. LOL at my number 3 song being the Pink Panther theme by Henry Mancini, which my daughter was weirdly obsessed with for a while this summer.

Anyway, 1303 new artists, 86 countries, 51450 minutes

silverfish, Thursday, 5 December 2019 17:19 (one month ago) link

2019 ain't nearly over yet, but:

844 new artists, 55 countries, 22534 minutes (a new peak, it's been about that level for each of the past 4 years but going up slightly year on year)

top 2019 artist completely skewed by the fact that I listened to nearly all of the Bobbie Gentry Girl from Chickasaw County box set once, one weekend

artist of the decade: Red Velvet (fair enough)

Jeff W, Thursday, 5 December 2019 18:51 (one month ago) link
