At the end of September, Spotify became available in Canada (WOOO). I quickly made a number of playlists with the endless amounts of songs in their library. I made a playlist of my favourites for right this minute, one for chill relaxing mornings, a playlist of my favourites from the 80s, one from the 90s, and one from the early 00s. Because of all these playlists I’ve been listening to a huge variety of music this month. Some of favourites though, have been: Chill Mornings: Paul Simon - Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard: I don’t think I’d ever really heard Paul Simon before Spotify.. If I had, I definitely don’t remember it. It’s so chill and calm and I really like his lyrics. I’m still getting into it but this song is the one I listen to most.
90s: Spice Girls - Spice World: Iconic. I was around 5 or 6 when I was really into this album. And pretty much anything Spice Girls related. I had tights, a sweatshirt, a bean bag chair, the barbies, the gum… If it was Spice Girls, I was all over it. Last year I learned that my mom wasn’t exactly thrilled with them as the girls I was looking up to.. But, despite this she let me not only listen to the music but have all the stuff to go with my infatuation. She really is the best mumma ever.
00s: P!nk - Missundaztood: I remember listening to this album while my mom and I were driving through Cloverdale. I’m positive we listened to it more than just that one time based on the number of songs I know all the lyrics to, but for some reason I just see the two of us in our mini van leaving a gas station in Cloverdale with Just Like a Pill blasting. Random.
Right Now: Taylor Swift - 1989: I think I like this album slightly more than I should… After listening to it a billion times this past week I’ve definitely noticed some extreme similarities to other artists (Lorde, Lana Del Ray, Avril Lavigne…) but I doubt the majority of her fans will pick up on it so I’m sure it will still do exceptionally well. She may not really be my favourite artist but MAN this album is kind of killer..
