If you stalk me on Spotify, you'll probably discover what I call my multiple musical personalities. My musical taste ranges from B.B. King to Common to Atreyu to Miles Davis to Bon Iver to - well, you get my point. The only thing you definitely won't find me listening to is country music. If there's anything worth doing, I probably created a playlist for it. Needless to say, I am a huge fan of playlists. Sadly, Spotify only syncs with one social network, Facebook. Not to be rude, but many of my Facebook friends do not have good taste in music. Or, at least, they don't publicly share their playlists via Spotify. I know, because I've stalked them. While I might not interact with some of these people at all in real life anymore, here are a few who have decent taste in music.
My favorite Spotify stalks
Mike and I shared a Geology class together at Kutztown. While our professor chatted away about tectonic plates, we exchanged awesome music. Mike even hosted a radio station at KU called "Never Mind the Mainstream." Hence the incredible indie music selection.
Alyssa and I worked together forever ago at Barnes & Noble. She's a pretty incredible person, but it's enough for me that she subscribes to a playlist entitled "Drive Soundtrack."
Faith is another previous co-worker, lover of beer and one serious DMB fan. I'm a huge fan of her "goodONE's" playlist. Give me more good ones, girl!
I once drank way too much of River Horse's Tripel Horse while at Brad's house. I won't get into the details, but he was such a good sport about it. Turns out he has wonderful taste in music. I'm not really surprised, though. His nickname is B-Rad after all.
I met Brett when I studied abroad in Spain during college. He only has one public playlist, "Fall is Here." No kidding! I wonder if he even gets to experience real seasons over in Minnesota?
It warms my heart to see my roommate from Spain also shares a love for Ozomatli. I always knew I liked Jess for more than her wanderlust! No really, she rules. I couldn't have traveled to Spain with a better person than her.
