Anyway, sometimes I work without music, and other times, with. I know that Amazon now has a similar service too, but I’m fine with Spotify now.
The beauty of Spotify is that I can listen to any type of music, create a radio station, or create a playlist. I mean, it’s great stuff. Do I want music from a favorite film, Top 40, R&B music from the 1990s, classic rock, Beethoven and Chopin, or even just A Hint of Bad-a$$? Well, Spotify is your tabula rasa…now draw. And then listen.
But back to the review.
Overall though, I’m excited to have found a great resource to accompany the days and evenings I spend working on projects. I get to make Playlists based on my musical preference du jour—some with words, others without.
BROWSE: I went over this a little earlier, but I didn’t cover everything. Other portions I didn’t recount include:
- a section dedicated to music at the top of the charts in the United States and globally
- new music that has been released
- recommendations from Spotify based on music you’ve selected
RADIO: Make a station based off of an artist, playlist, or song, for example. The catch is that it doesn’t just play a set of songs based off of one song, but also based off of how you rate a song. Give the song either a thumbs up or thumbs down, and the list will adjust to better fit your musical taste.
- The benefit of this is that there is an iterative quality that makes adjustments along the way.
- The goal here is that it will create a station that is more along the lines of my musical preferences, which is something that I appreciate.
ARTISTS: It includes the pages of the artists that you’ve decided to Follow. This section gives you the chance to see new music selections from the artist. All of the artists that you like will be in one place so that when you want to listen to this music, you have everyone that you like on one place instead of having to use the search box.
STATIONS: It includes radio stations that I’ve followed.
LIKED FROM RADIO: The songs that you give a thumbs up to on the radio are listed here.
In sum, I like Spotify and listen to it now on a regular basis. Maybe I'll figure out one day to sync to Facebook, which is the one thing I couldn't figure out. Otherwise though, Spotify is a useful resource that helps me to stay calm and collected while I complete projects.
That’s it. C’est tout. Talk soon.
