I was going to turn each of my ‘Hits of Nostalgia’ Spotify mixes into their own individual Advent Calendar day (and I will probably regret not doing so when I struggle later with what to include on future days) but after sharing my little 90s rant + playlist a few days ago, I was hit with the reality of what the hell am I supposed to write about the 80s, of which I only spent 7 years of life in? And the 70s? Don’t even get me started on my lack of memory of that decade.
All jokes aside, I really do like these nostalgia mixes. Both in putting them together and throwing them on shuffle later. Speaking of those mixes, here they come now as clickable cover art that opens the playlist in Spotify.
These decade playlists provide a nice outlet for discovery and re-discovery. Sure there is enough old faithfuls to fill each mix to the brim, but as I’ve said before, the exciting thing about Spotify (which helps me suppress the non-exciting parts about it) is how much new-to-me music from the past there is to explore.
So whether you feel like re-living one of your decades, or magically transporting yourself into a decade you never actually lived in, I’ve got you covered as far back as the 50s. Each playlist contains 54 tracks, which is over 3 hours and gives you plenty of times to throw one on shuffle without the playlist feeling stale.
But to keep things fresh, I’ll be jumping in and mixing up the song selection throughout the year.
So press the 'follow' button over on Spotify for auto-magic updates if you fancy that sort of thing.
