The newly relaunched Sharemyplaylists.com is back with another installment of their monthly playlists.
This remarkable playlist by legendary SMP user, Lasse Nordgren, charts the entire history of the Billboard Hot 100 from its very first number one in 1958 (Poor Little Fool by Ricky Nelson fact fans) all the way through to its current ascendant, Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars. We were so impressed by this playlist we dedicated an entire blog post to it, which you can read herehere.
One of the most iconic musicians of all time has finally landed on Spotify. This year marks what would have been Lennon’s 70th birthday and this playlist celebrates his career masterfully with such timeless classics as Working Class Hero, Jealous Guy and Imagine to name but a few.
If you’re eagerly anticipating the release of Kanye West’s latest album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which is out November 22, then this playlist will be right up your street. Featuring everything from Kayne’s production skills to vocal talents, this is must for all hip-hop fans.
C-81, for those of you that don’t already know, is widely regarded as one of the most influential compilation tapes of all time galvanizing an entire generation of budding indie starlets. This brilliant playlist is dedicated to the artists featured on the legendary NME mixtape as well as similar songsmiths of the era such as Orange Juice, The Beat, Cabaret Voltaire, Ian Dury & The Blockheads and John Cooper Clarke (you can read more about it here).
Simple this one: take Q Magazine’s 500 Greatest Lost Tracks and turn them into one tidy playlist. A spectacular collection of hidden gems awaits you here, painstakingly put together once again by Lasse Nordgren.
SMP’s very own, Kieron, offers the second in his series of masterful down-tempo curations, Easy Like Sunday Mornings Vol.2 featuring classic tracks from the likes of Al Green, Womack & Womack, Teddy Pendergrass and Curtis Mayfield. Perfect ear food for any day of the week.
It’s only fair that the biggest show on British television right now gets its own playlist, so here it is. Stay tuned to this one as songs will be added throughout the week leading up to the live shows meaning you’ll be bang up-to-date on what’s already been sung/murdered and also what’s about to be performed.
One of our most popular monthly playlist comes in the shape of November’s Acid Jazz Hispano playlist, the one stop shop for all of your acid jazz, funk, soul, electronica, house and disco needs. Check out awesome tracks from Wise Guys, Moodymann, Solomon Burke, Digital Underground and more.
If Pete Doherty hadn’t taken it upon himself to break into his band mate’s house and take-up substance abuse as a full-time job, what would The Libertines third album have sounded like? A bit like this probably with tracks comprising of Babyshambles, Dirty Pretty Things and his solo work.
We round things off this month with one of our very best, and most popular, monthly musical tastemakers, Nov 2010 – indie & electronica. Step this way for such sonic delights as Lykke Li, The Walkmen, Freestylers, Crystal Fighters, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, Two Door Cinema Club, Ashbury Heights and loads, loads more besides.
