The Most Popular Spotify Playlists

Although I have my issues with Spotify — namely, it’s run by two billionaires who enrich themselves off both musician’s recordings and ads that feel like extortion — I use it a lot. It has to be said, it’s a pretty great product for consumers if not at all especially helpful for creators — especially when musicians are prevented from performing live to make a living. Are they expected to live off of merchandise sales until they retire?

A relatively minor annoyance for people like me, who listen to a fairly wide range of music and like to make playlists, is that only the first 100 of our playlists are searchable — so when a friend asked whether or not I had a Northern Soul playlist, which I do, I had to send her a link on her phone because “n” was far too far down in my alphabetical list to be available for her to search. Anyway, I figured it might be helpful to make a post with all of my playlists so that they’re easier to search for. I’m starting with the most popular.

Enjoy… and support artists however you can since streaming sites don’t.
