Spotify: Making a cd for your friend without the disc!

leave a comment »


Spotify made that Transatlantic voyage across to discover the land that is USA, North America. It required the natives to declare their curiosity by asking to be invited into that European club. While some were quick to hit that send button, others were still clinging onto more familiar services like Pandora, Rhapsody, Grooveshark, and LastFM.

And while some of us (Pandora for me) can still use these cloud service music players anytime, how many of us can make playlists for our friends to enjoy? How many of us can use the aforementioned music services to collect songs we find endearing, reflect who we are, or consider listenable without feeling guilty that Pop Culture as wrangled another one of us?

Consider using Spotify to make an online cd for you to give to your friends! Why burn a physical disc that will oxidize in a few hundred years when you can make something that will theoretically last throughout the “Space-Time Continuum” (don’t know about this? why click here).

The image below is an example of how simple it really is to accomplish making an online cd through Spotify. See arrow of how I made a playlist for my wife? After you’ve added your friends to your account…this is what you do: 1) make a playlist 2) name a playlist 3) drag appropriate music to named playlist 4) send email or text/phone call to friend that you spent some time thinking about him/her and have made a playlist worthy of their listening pleasure. 5) wait for a return playlist from that friend.

I’m making a playlist for my wife…things that she’ll like, music that would put a smile on her face (High Fidelity inspired moment with Stevie Wonder to remind you).
