Spotify 25

My Spotify 25 Playlist

I was recently tagged in an internet ‘meme’ (… a kind of viral …er thing) to create a Spotify playlist.  It’s not really the usual stuff of this blog but I think Spotify is superb and that streaming is the future.  These are not necessarilly my favourite 25 tracks (no place here for my probable all time No. 1;  Massive Attack’s Unfinished Sympathy) but they are all brilliant in their own way and designed to flow as a playlist.  If you use Spotify you can download the playlist here.

Jed Hallam tagged me and Adam Lewis amongst others.  I’m tagging Steve Taylor (no pressure) and Tim Difford because for an oldish bloke (like me) he appears to have impeccable musical taste.

Sorry I’m late… here’s my Spotify list… not my favourite 25 but a nice mix of ups, downs and relentlessness…

Can I join in? I did mine then looked at Tim’s – a little crossover.

Didn’t expect to come to Rob Browns website and listen to his favourite music playlist, but since I am I thought I would share my Brit-pop playlist:

Sometimes you know you’re going to get on with someone based on musical tastes alone…

A fine effort sir.
