Spotify is a digital music streaming service that gives you access to millions of songs, albums and podcasts for free. You can create your own playlists, share music with friends, and even find new music with personalized recommendations.
Sometimes our couples have a lot of songs they really want played at their wedding or social, or they have some very specific songs that might not be well known due to a different culture or the song is covered by several artists. And we are OK with that! After all, it is their day and we do everything in our power to make it perfect.
Instead of typing out a list in a word document, or handwriting the list on scraps of paper, our recommendation is that couples create their playlist in Spotify and then share that link with us. We can then cross reference those songs with our extensive DJ library, and also get a feel of the type of music our couples want played.
Plus, this guarantees that we will ALWAYS play the correct song! Often, there are several versions of songs, especially if they are wedding versions. If the song is sent to us in a Spotify list, then we know 100% that it is the right song.
Spotify is free for everyone to use. That means you can create a free account on the Spotify website and make as many playlists as you’d like. Once you have an account, you can access the Spotify app on your computer, phone, or tablet and start exploring. You can search for music by artist, album, or track, create playlists of your favourite songs, follow other users to get suggestions of new music, and even listen to podcasts or audiobooks.
Because you can access your Spotify account on any device, it is easy to add songs to your playlist as you go about your day. Did an awesome song just come up on the radio? No need to scramble for paper and pen, easily add it to your playlist on the app right then and there. Are you listening to someone else’s playlist for inspiration? In just a click of a button you can add that song too!
Creating a playlist in Spotify is easy and fun! Here are the steps to get started:
And that’s it! You are now the proud creator of a custom playlist.
While it can be helpful to us to receive a couple’s playlist, it is also a really great way to spread your music with friends and family! Sharing your playlists on Spotify is easy and straightforward.
First, open Spotify on your device. Then, select the playlist you would like to share. You will look for the 3 little dots just under your playlist’s name, beside the green play button. If you choose to copy the playlist link, you can paste it into a message or email to share with anyone. If you choose to share the playlist directly to social media, select the platform you would like to share it on and follow the instructions.
Spotify is great because it offers a wide variety of music and podcasts for free, or for a low price if you want it to be ad free. Spotify also has a great user interface that is easy to navigate and the ability to create custom playlists makes it a must for every music enthusiast. Additionally, Spotify offers personalized recommendations based on your listening habits, so you can discover new music and podcasts to enjoy. It’s a great way to explore new genres and artists without spending a lot of money (if any), or time.
From discovering new music, to gathering your favourite music together in one place, Spotify makes it easy to do all that and more. We love it here at All Around Sound and we hope you do too!
