You all know how much I love Spotify, right? In the year since I wrote that post, my love has only grown, especially now that I have a Premium account and can listen to as much music as I want, ad-free.
One of the many aspects that make the service so enjoyable is the ability to create your own playlists, as well as listen and subscribe to playlists made by thousands of other users. I’ve benefited greatly from the lists others have made, and have tried putting together a few of my own (beyond simply compiling one album). My first triumph was my playlist for the novel High Fidelity, and recently I made a list of songs containing Biblical references, to go along with my Bible as Literature unit:
Some users online agree with me about the teaching possibilities, but the Spotify site is a little unclear about the venues in which it is allowed to be used. Classroom use seems “non-commercial” to me, but it’s a little unclear. Even if I keep the playlist for my own use, it’s a fun mix–enjoy!
Note: I deliberately did not include sacred/gospel music, to allow for more of a range. If you have suggestions for additions, let me know!
