Because some songs from last Thursday’s concert still reverberate in my head and leave me in a music mode, I thought I’d share some of the mixtapes I’ve been making for a friend who’s hosting our irregular PnP RP sessions. Here’s to you, Juppy! Thanks for sharing your living-room, even if we don’t always leave it in the best of shapes.
Now, for sharing those mixtapes, or essentially the playlists, here, I was looking for a good social networking app that could basically just take my iTunes playlists, make them browsable, link some related information, and potentially offer samples. Unfortunately, I didn’t quite find one that worked well for me. I looked at mixtape.me and playlistify.org, but the former didn’t know about a lot of songs I was looking for, the latter could parse my iTunes playlists, but didn’t adhere to the track order. Being somebody who believes that there is not just such a thing as a good song, but also the right time for a song, changing a handicrafted order is a plain no-go to me. Then there is spotify, but especially after hearing how little artists get paid for airtime on spotify, I decided against that, too. That eventually leaves me with a good old text table.
This first mixtape, I suppose, though generally trying to cross it all over, is a bit Indie-ish — trying to introduce Juppy to The Bravery in various phases of their band development and the corresponding, quite distinct sounds. If you buy all the songs, they should fit snugly on a single audio CD.
