I've got FIVE songs on here, friends, fuckin come at me

@Louisa oh good, I only did one bc it was the day from hell

@Mj sorry it's a rough day! Maybe you can enjoy these jams on the way home

@Louisa @Mj Well, I feel a lot better about putting two on there now...

@Quixote171 I drove down dirt roads in rural Arkansas with the windows down in a classic mustang while listening to the album my song is from. It was perfect for it.

@Thomas
I'm excited to get in my car and put this list on. Wish it wasn't 18 degrees here...

@Mj

I haven't listened all the way through yet! I'm excited for my drive home!

@Quixote171 whoever is responsible for “Stick Shifts and Safety Belts”: 😆❤️

I made this Monday evening, but then got distracted. It's in an experimental genre that is derived from a type of acapella that predates recorded music.

This was also fully improvised.

It's about driving, but likely slightly misses the note on what you were hoping for.

@Quixote171 nina simone, my baby just cares for me - perfect for desert driving (esp death valley)
- pixies, bird dream of the olympus mons
- camper van beethoven, photograph
- nick lowe, cruel to be kind
- beastie boys, sure shot
- thelonious monk, bright mississippi
- the aislers set, hit the snow
- superchunk, the first part
- the homesick, gucci gucci
- esg, keep on moving
- deerhoof, running thoughts
- thee oh sees - toe cutter - thumb buster

can you tell i'm dying for a roadtrip?

@crumbleneedy

I'm a sucker for a road-trip! Love 'em!

Pick two or three of those and I'll add em to the list!

@Quixote171 ok here you go
@Quixote171 nina simone, my baby just cares for me
the fall, hit the north pt 1
beastie boys, sure shot

@xj9

That's probably true.
What alternatives are you suggesting?

@xj9

Does Kodi stream music that you don't explicitly have stored locally somewhere?
That's a real question - I don't know.
I thought Kodi was like Plex - for streaming media you already have.

@xj9

Well, in this scenario, for the Masto-Playlist, people from all over the world are submitting songs, that 9 times out of 10, are on Spotify, and can be added instantly. The odds of me having those specific songs on a cd, or mp3 or whatever? Nil.

Sure open-source is better for almost everything else, but this sort of thing actually wouldn't be possible *without* Spotify or a similar service.

@Quixote171 Thanks, pal! You are doing great work with these playlists. Keep it up.

@StQuelleSurprise
