I don’t know how I didn’t hear about this until last week, but have you heard about Spotify? It’s amazing, really?! You can download it for free and search a HUGE list of songs and play them. No more spending money at iTunes…here comes Spotify:)
- You can search and hear any song that you want. It’s like searching a massive iTunes library—without having to buy the music:)
- You can make and share playlists. I’ve got my running mix all ready to go!
- You set up one account–but can listen on multiple devices (iPhone, Macbook, etc.)
- You can see your friend’s playlists to see what tunes they recommend.
- There is a radio feature, similar to Pandora, if you feel like mixing it up during the day.
Now since it is For the Kids Thursday, I wanted to share some of our favorite children records. We really do listen to a lot of music around here, may it be in the playroom, in the car, or while we are eating breakfast.
Some of our favorites are…1. They Might Be Giants, Here Come the ABC’s: Songs all about the alphabet, bot not overly obnoxious. 2. Veggie-Tales Sing Along: I have listened to this so many time that my three year old can recite the whole cd by memory-it’s his FAVORITE!3. Baby Einstein, Playtime Music Box: This reminds my son, Aiden, of the show Little Einsteins so he loves to hear all the classical music played here.4. Putamayo World Playground: This is one of many Putamayo cd’s and I really recommend them for something different to listen to.5. Laurie Berkner Band-how can you not listen to Laurie Berkner?!?!
Any other ones that you recommend now that I have Spotify?
And just so you know, we don’t only listen to kid music around here. We LOVE all type of music. Do you really want to know Aiden’s favorite song right now—check this video out from spending time with family at the beach. I don’t know why he loves this song, but he does?!:
There are different tiers of Spotify. We are trying out the Premium version in our house since it has the full mobile experience (which will hopefully help my husband survive his train commute a little more joyfully and keep us going through our jogging stroller runs) just to see how much we use it. But there is also an amazing Free version as well as an Unlimited version. Head over here and get yourself some Spotify today.
