Music streaming is one of the most popular tech inventions of the last few years. Gone are the days of CD’s, MP3s or buying individual songs online.
With music streaming services compiling millions of tracks into one affordable subscription, you can listen to any tune your heart desires on your phone or computer - any time you want. It’s like Netflix, but for music.
Spotify is one such service that is taking the world by storm, and with thousands of ready-made playlists, it’s an easy feat to find the right one to match your mood.
Our top ten list of the best Spotify playlists ticks all the possible boxes.
Channel that Sunday brunch, laid-back vibe of your favourite cafe with a selection of relaxed tracks from a range of alternative artists you may or may not have heard of. Glen Hansard and Brandon Jenner make appearances. Phoebe Buffay from Friends does not.
There’s nothing like vintage beats to get you in the mood for a vigorous workout - and make it fun at the same time. Groove Armada, Basement Jaxx and Fatboy Slim will all accompany you as you bust a move to their memorable classics.
Feeling loved up? Spotify is packed full of playlists created by people both in love and out of love. This particular one, appropriately named 90’s Baby Makers, is geared towards the former, and includes classic tracks from Boyz II Men, Blackstreet and Janet Jackson. There’s nothing like a bit of ‘No Diggity’ to set the mood, are we right?
Throwback to the sounds of the 50’s Deep South with this playlist designed for lovers of classic blues. Iconic voices like Etta James and The Drifters will croon to you as you go about your day.
Latin music is a surefire way to get you fired up and feeling fine. This particular selection, with over 600,000 subscribers, is chock-full of hits - many of which you’ll know well. Honorary Aussie Ricky Martin of course pops up, as does, *cough*, The Ketchup Song.
The simple but to the point title of this playlist says it all. Legendary rock tracks you will instinctively sing along to without even realising. Head bang to AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, Queen and The Doors with joyful abandon.
Struggling to fall asleep can be stressful - and a common affliction. Spotify has an entire collection of playlists under the ‘Sleep’ genre, and this simply titled one, although consisting of alternative artists you may never have heard of (including the aptly named ‘Sleepaholics’), has just the right calming vibe to put you right to sleep.
Everyone loves the occasional dose of happy pop music, whether it’s to get you moving in the morning or to play as you forge your way through the day. Always Perfect is just that - the perfect compilation of old and new pop tracks you’ll know and love. From Tracy Chapman to Adele, Ed Sheeran to INXS - it’s all there.
The music scene is constantly evolving, with new music hitting the radio waves every day. Stay up to date with Australia’s leading source for new music - Hot Hits Australia. Constantly updated to reflect the charts, this playlist is the ideal blend of new music you’ll be soon singing along to.
Studies have proven that listening to classical music is great for memory and concentration, and therefore makes the best backing track for intense study or work sessions. Hundreds of years on, classical masters such as Debussy, Mozart and Chopin are still widely loved, and with over 13 hours of beautiful music on this playlist alone - your classical education starts here!
