I've been enjoying Spotify a lot, such that I've purchased a Premium subscription. (And incidentally I have several invites should anyone want one.) I've published a catch-all music playlist and also a literary one. Through Andy Crouch I found Bach's complete works.

Has anyone found or made any interesting playlists? Or dull ones. I like dull things too.

I've made only one playlist exclusively to share on spotify, using exclusively music available on spotify (it seems that if I use songs on my hard drive they're not available to other users).

It was - and this is possibly the dull part - a tribute to the first Australian winner of the Tour de France cycling race, 2011 champion Cadel Evans.

So it follows that the playlist consists of Aussie pop & rock artists from the last several decades.

I tried to use songs that fed into - either by title, content, rhythm, or some combo of those - the overall themes of cycling, racing or competition.
