Pitchfork’s top 69 of 2009 on Spotify

December 17th, 2009 by Steve Curati

Just wanted to say how much I’m enjoying Pitchfork’s top 100 this year. It’s uncanny how many of them I like. And an extra treat that I hadn’t heard loads of them before today (who is this so-called Lady Gaga?!). It’s also exactly the sort of thing Spotify was invented for. Being able to listen to the top 100 as a Spotify playlist is such a pleasure. Well, at least the 69 of the 100 that are on Spotify. This playlist will be my Pitchfork memento of the year and the other 31 tracks sadly won’t really exist for me.

Also, through listening to this playlist, I’ve downloaded 3 albums and a few songs through emusic today that I wouldn’t have done otherwise. See, record companies? Put your music on Spotify and I might still buy it (downloading through emusic counts as buying, doesn’t it?). Don’t put your music on Spotify and I probably won’t even hear it.
