Make sure you preface your request by asking that people only choose party-specific songs (or whatever other preference you have).
Also, have a bunch of your own party songs pre-loaded on the play-list to give people an idea of mood/genre.
Disclaimer: For many people, this is an LPT for post COVID. I hope everyone is keeping safe in the meantime.
Regarding the risk of people adding silly songs to the playlist / adding duplicate songs: ensure you do an audit on the day of the party, and lock the playlist so no-one can make further edits.
If you are concerned with what the flow of music at the party will be like: ask people to stick to a couple of specific genres.
Regarding 'giving people homework' before a party: you don't have to make it compulsory.
This is a pretty common thing I see across media set in The Vietnam War. Here's two examples. Like in Apocalypse Now? Or in Kong: Skull Island? Blasting some awesome music during a battle or an attack, was this a real thing or was it something made up for all that media?
People debate over whether it's real or a grasp at staying relevant:
what's always funny to me about these obama lists every single year is how blatant and cynical the ploy is, and how it works anyway. like, he very obviously puts these things out as a way to extend his fading reputation as the "cool president" for as long as possible despite his open contempt for young people and any genuine righteous movement. i thought maybe all those hilarious quotes from his book, him constantly scolding people for wanting to accomplish anything, or him basically singlehandedly killing the nba strike and the bernie campaign would've finally been the killing blow for Cool Obama but it always seems to be erased when he gets some unpaid intern to write down the last 50 songs that played on npr and say its his taste. its a genius move, i gotta hand it to him
[The moment I knew I grew up was when I genuinely started to realize his “cool dad” image is really an image. Just sharing this here because it’s fascinating to see how this sentiment i... keep reading on reddit ➡
Apple Music description:
> If you were hoping that an Eminem album released in 2020 would be less offensive, violent, or controversial, this album isn't for you. And the same can be said of this deluxe edition, released almost a year later, featuring 16 new tracks. In January, before the world entered lockdown, we were reacquainted with Eminem's chainsaw-wielding alter ego Slim Shady in an album as cold and uncompromising as the title suggests. And while some of us spent the year baking bread, watching TV, and chatting with friends online, Eminem pulled out his notepad. The extra tracks, released just before Christmas, carry all the aggressive, sinister, occasionally unacceptable themes we’ve come to expect from the legendary rapper. But they’re timestamped with references to the pandemic lexicon: social distancing, hand sanitizer, quarantine, etc. "They say these bars are like COVID," he raps on 'Gnat.' "You get 'em right off the bat."
> Unlike his last two releases, this album is neither pop-leaning (with exception of one Ed Sheeran feature) nor a straight-up diss record. For better or worse, most of Music to Be Murdered By is simply Eminem doing what he does best: gratuitously savage, antagonistic rhymes for the pure, juvenile sake of it. Longtime stans will rejoice to find three (!) collaborations with Royce da 5'9", particularly the frenetic 'Yah Yah,' also featuring Q-Tip and Denaun. The beats on 'Stepdad' and 'Lock It Up' are second to none, while 'Little Engine' and 'Farewell' wouldn’t feel out of place on albums released two decades ago.
> But the world has changed in two decades. The divide between Eminem, lyrical savant and god of rap, and Slim Shady, a trigger-happy psychopath, has always been difficult to bridge. It’s harder to hear shock-value sucker punches about domestic violence and disability—least of all because they ri... keep reading on reddit ➡
Had to repost with more stuff cus it was too short last time but yeah.
People seem to hate modern music and especially genres like hip hop a lot and it's cool if you personally don't like it yourself but saying certain music is objectively worse is just not true at all when it's just your opinion and personal preference.
There's always people talking about how all rappers nowadays sound the same and everyone with "lil" in their name makes the exact same music but if you actually listen to a lil uzi vert song, lil peep song, and a lil dicky song and genuinely think they sound anything like each other you need your hearing checked because these people are all vastly different in both their lyrical content and their musical content as a whole.
One more criticism I hear is that modern rap artists don't write their own songs or create their own instrumentals. Saying rappers don't write their music is just flat out not true because they do. Obviously I'm sure there's a few that do but the vast majority don't and it's always been like that. Plus the criticism of rappers not making their own beats isnt fair either. Most rappers work with a producer to find a beat that they want to use for their song and they have input over what they want it to sound like while the producer makes it. It's a collaborative process where the rapper does what he/she is best at which is rapping and the producer does what he/she is best at which is producing to come up with something that neither could've dont on their own.
And at the end of the day none of this really matters as long as people enjoy the music they wanna listen to.
Lmfao love this >On a recent afternoon at the Spurs’ practice facility, Popovich overheard 22-year-old guard Lonnie Walker IV raving about some of his favorite music.
>Naturally inquisitive, and always in search of ways to relate to kids these days, Popovich wandered over to engage.
>And that is how the 71-year-old Spurs coach found himself engulfed in a passionate but confusing conversation regarding a rap artist called Lil Baby.
>“He was like, ‘Rapper’s name is Lil?’ ” Walker recalled, laughing. “I was like, ‘Ah, you know what Pop? Just forget it.’”
>That probably turned out for the best.
>If Popovich did delve further into the Lil Baby catalog, he might find song titles that would make Redd Foxx blush. And then he would have to explain to his players who was Redd Foxx.
>As the oldest coach in NBA history, now at the helm of the youngest roster of his 25-season career, Popovich has come to grips with the fact he will never agree with many of his players’ musical tastes.
>“The only ones I listen to are the ones you can dance to,” Popovich said. “If you can’t dance to it, then it’s not good.”
>Popovich has always been a coach who values personal connection with and between his players. He has long believed a team that understands and enjoys each other off the court will find a greater chemistry on it.
