Daily/weekly songs

I recently shared a post about my journal songs. How I find them. Why I share them. And this month, I’ve been sharing them for a year now. I started late March 2022 and I’ve been sharing a song a day ever since. Sure, they get shared once a week, but still every weekly post contains 7 songs. When available, I also add some of the lyrics and copyrights.

Finding music ๐ŸŽถ

Every day I share a song. Well, every week I share 7 songs in one go. I have a song every day in my journal posts. I try to add songs I really like. And if you listen long enough, sometimes the list may surprise you! I bundle the songs as well. Make playlists on Spotify with my chosen songs that I also listen to a lot. It helps me keep track of songs I’ve used in the past. As sharing one song a day quickly leads to a huge playlist.

I devide them. One big playlist where I download all the songs on my phone. Yay for having more space on the phone. Sad I can’t use a SD card to expand even further. I also make monthly playlists. I share them here as well, if I remember to update the page. You can find them here: Journal Spotify Playlists.

Spotify Wrapped

With #SpotifyWrapped trending, they also gave me my top songs and artists from this year. There were no real surprises, even though I had thought some artists to be featured more prominent.

Some people love Spotify, some hate it. Reasons for loving it: many songs and artists available to you when you have an internet connection. Reasons to hate it: they don’t pay much to artists and some say they don’t keep your data safe. I feel mixed about it, and since my funds are low, I will keep using it. But… There is a but…

Spin me ’round!

Her love spins like a merry-go-round
Going up and down, she’s far away bound
Her love – expression of vision and sound
It’s setting me up, and then it’s kicking me down

Songteksten voor Love Spins ยฉ Universal Music Publishing Group

I think it was 2014, just married, totally in happiness, when I celebrated my 34th birthday. My new wife had gotten together with my dad and she bought me a record player.

Fast forward to 2018, freshly divorced and moving in my little apartment, where I finally had a place to set up the record player!

Sharing music

I’ve always loved music. Not all sorts. But enough to have plenty to choose from. First, I’d record music on tapes from the radio. Always hoping the annoying DJ would keep his mouth shut… ๐Ÿ˜‚ Then came cd’s, which were so handy compared to tapes. But portable players often meant skipping, loads of it ๐Ÿ˜‚!

Then came the illegal top music cd’s. For a reasonable fee you had a cd set every month that provided you with all the new and hottest tracks! And then… Internet! Napster!!! Newsgroups. So. Much. Illegal. Music. ๐Ÿ’€ And of course I used it. Making my own cd’s, mixing the right tracks for a nice car ride. Soon there came MP3 players, which were even better than cd’s… So much progress in not that much time.

Music – Powerwolf ๐Ÿบ

Powerwolf, often stylized as POWERWOLF, is a German power metal band founded in 2003 in Saarbrรผcken by members of Red Aim. The band consists of vocalist Karsten Brill as “Attila Dorn”, lead guitarist Benjamin Buss as “Matthew Greywolf”, bassist/rhythm guitarist David Vogt as “Charles Greywolf”, keyboardist Christian Jost as “Falk Maria Schlegel” and drummer Roel van Helden.

Music – Smash Into Pieces

If you’ve seen some previous music posts, you may have seen a notice of this band here or there. And while this post will be mostly about my favorite songs by them, I’ll also share some general information about the band here.

For all info, please check out their official website here. Info below is from this website: Second Wiki.

Smash Into Pieces is a band Swedish of alternative rock and metal alternative from ร–rebro and emerged in 2008 at the hands of Benjamin “Banjo” Jennebo. In 2012 they signed a contract with Gain / Sony Music and shortly after they were named revelation group of the year according to the “Bandit Rock Awards”.

Music – Presence of Mind (Dynazty)

A song that I discovered at the end of November or early December was “Heartless Madness” by a band called Dynazty. It was recommended to me in a mix made by Spotify for “me” (while it had over 20k likes I doubt the playlist is just for me ๐Ÿ˜‚ but still!).

I liked the song and decided to check out the album and band. The album is called “The Dark Delight” and it came out in 2020. I then did some research on the band as I’m always curious to where the music came/comes from. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Spotify update!

Hello everyone! Long time followers have seen me sharing Spotify songs and play lists here on my posts before. I usually *try to* update a monthly playlist with a mix of 25 songs every month on the first. Due to many reasons I’ve not kept to this lots of times. But this morning I have finally updated the playlist and I’d like to share it with you.

There’s a free Spotify go home usage, with adds and all, and for about โ‚ฌ10 a month you have unlimited access without adds and including downloads for offline “streaming”. I have had a paid version for years as I use my phone a lot for music these days and โ‚ฌ10 a month is cheaper than buying cd’s here, which I’ll then need to convert and put on my SD card. With my data in my mobile, I can stream a very long time and ie doesn’t take up space on my SD, which means more space for pictures of Arwen! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Weekly update & new Spotify playlist

Howdy folks, after a very serious topic, it’s time for a lighter one today. I had not shared my weekly Polar stats yet and I finally remembered to update the Monthly playlist I have on Spotify. I had a list all ready to share and last month I just forgot! So I waited till November 1st to update the new playlist.

Unfortunately my playlist only has 2 likes. I know it will not be everyone’s cup-of-tea. But I really hoped that more people would have clicked that little heart symbol… I shared the list on Twitter several times and I really hoped some of my friends on there would like it, to show some support… I guess 2 of them did and that really means a lot. ๐Ÿ˜Š OK lets head over to last week’s Polar Flow numbers!
