At long last, I have figured out how Spotify works.
So, as an update to my post a while back, about playlists for books, put together by authors – or others, of course – I realised that, as usual, I had made several references in the post, to several songs.
And not just Talking Heads‘ songs this time either.
So, as the previous post I’m referring to, was a post about playlists (on Spotify) to compliment the reading (experience) of books – what about a Spotify Playlist to compliment the reading of a post about playlists on Spotify that compliment the reading experience of books?
Erm, yes, well…
Anyhow, here’s my playlist for the post:
It’s called rather obviously; Reading A Post In The Name Of…
As it would seem that Spotify don’t (as yet?) have access to Kraftwerk or Led Zeppelin, you’re just going to have to hum Neon Lights for 8.52 and Whole Lotta Love, for 7.54 (luckily for you I chose the shorter, live at Knebworth version), here below, is the Playlist listed, so you could of course, put it together yourself.
As iTunes do have access to the songs I’ve mentioned, click on the name for each song and you will rather conveniently be taken post-haste to an iTunes page for that song. Click on the band name to go to their official website.
Artists/tracks are as follows:
Joan Armatrading: Love And Affection
Rage Against The Machine: Killing In The Name Of
Kraftwerk: Neon Lights (live)
Samuel Barber: Adagio For Strings (Opus 11a)
Spiritualized: Cop Shoot Cop
Fela Kuti: Eko Ile
The Bhundu Boys: Kachembere
Wings: Band on the Run
Led Zeppelin: Whole Lotta Love (the How The West Was Won version is a little longer, I admit. But it’s the closest to the version I’m thinking of.
You may well have to join either of the above services to access the playlist – should you be bothered – I’m on there. Not much, but I’m on there, feel free to follow or whatever you do.
If the play list is over before you’ve finished reading, press play again.
If you’ve finished reading before the playlist is over, read it again.
