BotRH Music Project - populate our Spotify account with playlists


Recommended Posts

For those of you who have been around a while, I have a Spotify account for the Band of the Red Hand. Spotify is a digital music service that gives you access to millions of songs.


Now I know there are restrictions, but not in the UK - and our account is UK based since that is where I live. I know in the past we have had Banders from the US log in via my account once they have downloaded the application to install on your machine. However, I believe that only one person can use it at a time. If more do so, the newcomer kicks the current user out.


It has a nice feature that allows you to create playlists. We have some, including:


- individual Banders' playlists

- a "Tune or No Tune" playlist

- a playlist for the thread that shows DMers' favourite songs


I think some of these playlists are quite out of date. The project would be for a group of Banders to get together and get this up to date. I don't know if there is a limit on the number of playlists for an account, but it would be nice to get playlists together for all our "It's A Knockout" contests and "Original vs. Cover", and update our "Tune or No Tune" playlist.


It is also possible to publish these playlists, which is something I would like to do on DM. I would also tweet about them on the Band's Twitter account.


For those that take part, there will be promotion points, and the awarding of a Band award for your work and time.


If you have any questions, please post them here.


If you are interested, please post here as well and we shall see how to progress this idea.

maybe I should re-download spotify.....and this might be the wrong thread but Last.fm is telling me I'm going to have to buy a subscription after the first 30 songs I listen to. Is this happening to anyone else? Or is just me because I jumped seas?

As far as I am aware, last.fm is free in the UK, USA and Germany. Outside of these places, you have to pay after the first 30 songs.


I don't believe you have to pay for Spotify, no matter which country you are in.
