If music be the food of love, play on……..


I recently downloaded Spotify on my PC. The main reason for this? Well – any of you that know me, will know that I am a massive music fan.

Festivals are my thing. From the massive Glastonbury to the relatively small Hop Farm Festival – I have pretty much been a regular at them all over the years.

I love the atmosphere at different festivals. Each one has their own uniqueness.

I love the mix of people (and note the change of audience demographic since the early 90’s).

I love the secret hidden treasures – especially at Glastonbury…. seeking them out and wondering at the minds that created them.

I love ‘discovering’ new and up and coming bands. I saw Radiohead at Glastonbury before they were well known. I saw Coldplay and Snowpatrol before they became mainstream.

I also love seeing established bands – and finding out what all the fuss is about. Traditionally – I am not  really a dance music kinda girl – more Rock and Indie, but I had the best night in 2002 at Glastonbury when I saw Faithless for the first time and witnessed 100,000 people all around me jump about and dance their asses off. The atmosphere was electric….my body was a slave to the pounding bass and my mind (possibly helped by a lil’ bit if alcohol) span and soared. A night never to forget – and revisited when Faithless played again at Glastonbury in 2010.

And since joining SL, my music taste has widened by visiting DJ sets at different clubs and listening to various radio streams.  I wanted to check out and listen to recently discovered SL music while offline too – hence Spotify.

So – I am making an SL Spotify playlist, which I regularly update, of music that I discovered through SL, tracks that I already knew but had forgotten about till I heard them in SL and songs that remind me of people I have met.

Take a look at what’s on there so far:


Okay – so it’s a work in progress – which I will add to as the days, weeks and months in SL go on.

    Looking forward to it! I love the how you’re introducing me to music I’d likely never pick up myself. Thanks!
