The Spotify Playlist Challenge #MusicMonday

Spotify playlists challenge music Music Monday

So I waxed on (not for that long) about how great Spotify's official playlists are a while back. Since then, they've expanded their playlist database exponentially. And now that I'm a grad student, I find myself wanting to always have some background music on while I'm hitting the books. So my goal for the next 15-ish months? Listen to every single official Spotify playlist (not ones created by users, because I'd be dead in my grave and still listening).

I don't think I'm going to require myself to listen to every single song (sometimes new songs get added to playlists and that would just mean revisiting playlists like twice a month), but I have to have listened to 75% of each playlist, or more. And I think I'm going to say straight off the bat that I'm not going to be listening to anything that is talk-based, so I'm eliminating the "Word" playlists, the "Inspirational" playlists, "Pop Culture" playlists and, just because, the "Kids" playlists. (But that still means I've got the "Metal" playlists to contend with!)

Here's my running list of playlists conquered thus far ... watch this space:

Edit 11/29/14: They've started adding more categories. As of now, I will not be taking on any of the categories that were not listed when I started this challenge (these include Indie & Alternative, Punk).

Edit 1/17/15: I have now consolidated all lists. Jazz & Blues have become two separate categories on Spotify, and Groove has become three. I am also putting my foot down on any new playlists added. I went back to categorize a misplaced playlist (I've developed a system) and found about 10 new Chill playlists, which I added. But no more, unless I actually finish listening to the hundreds I already have organized into neat little folders :) So far, I've finished 80 playlists in about 3 months. 11 months to go ...

Update 5/25/15: 155 playlists done. A ton more to go ... 7 months to go. I took a nice, long break from Spotify for the last 2 months because I was going through a Mickey Mouse Club/Tony Lucca phase, but hopefully I'm back to the grind now.

Update 4/18/17: Many years later and I'm still working on it, slowly but surely. Much of what's left is lengthy and arduous, but I will eventually get through it all. Many of the playlists' names and songs have been changed since I started!

* indicates highly recommended playlists, if your musical preferences are anything like mine -- pop, acoustic, folk, singer-songwriter, jazz, R&B, some blues

  1. I'm pretty sure spotify deleted the playlist Sensuality (which was my favorite one to listen to). I didn't save anything on the playlist and can't, for the life of me, remember any of the songs. Is there any way you saved it and can give me the song list? I've even tried looking it up on google with no luck.

    1. Hi Lily Marie, I looked through my archives (I usually save the playlists I especially enjoyed, which included "Sensuality") and the playlist has disappeared for me as well. I also Googled it but couldn't find any record of it online. The only thing that came up was a playlist called "Silk Sheets," which I hoped might be a renamed version of the playlist, but I don't think that's the case, as all the songs were added just 8 days ago. I wish I could've been of more help :(
